Frequently Asked Questions
How do I return my book?
We offer 3 free methods to return your books. You may return separate rental orders in the one package/box to assist us in easier returns processing.
1) Return your books at your local ParcelPoint location.
Visit ParcelPoint via http://parcelpoint.com.au/jekkle. Enter your details, select your most convenient ParcelPoint location, then download and print your ParcelPoint return label (the address should display ParcelPoint Hub, 285 Coward Street, Mascot). Use a ParcelPoint label to lodge your return at a ParcelPoint location.
2) Return your books at an Australia Post Office (not available in all locations - please email email@example.com for a label).
Visit ParcelPoint via http://parcelpoint.com.au/jekkle. Enter your details, select Australia Post eParcel, then download and print your Australia Post eParcel label. Use the Australia Post eParcel label to lodge your return at an Australia Post Office.
3) You can return the books to our Head Office located at Unit 3, 1 Coggins Place, Mascot, NSW, 2020 between 10:00am and 5:00pm weekdays. It is a short walk from Mascot station.
Free Returns are only applicable for rentals. Returns for anything else, as well as refunds or exchanges, will incur a fee of $10.00 when using this service.
Can I write and highlight in the book?
As the book is being rented to multiple users, please do not write in pen (pencil is fine). We accept minimal highlighting and you may place tabs in the book.
What happens if I damage or lose the book?
If a book is returned to us in a damaged condition (stained, torn pages, loose binding, etc) or you lose the book, you will be charged the Jekkle list price, less any rental fees already incurred, plus a $5 administration fee.
Can I contact the book?
What is the average rental period?
In order to allow you sufficient time to return the book, the rental period is usually any time you place the order during the semester to around 2 weeks after the end of the examination period for your particular University.
Rental Due Dates
Semester One 2018 - Monday, 16th July 2018
Trimester One 2018 - Friday, 30th March 2018
Are there late fees?
We do ask that the books be returned as soon as you finish your exams (may as well get it out of the way). As much as we hate to charge late fees, we have to implement a late fee policy to encourage students to return the books for use the following semester. Therefore, our late fee policy is to charge $5 per week following the due date. If you wish to keep the book for longer, you may buy an extension. Please contact Jekkle customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I returned my book and there is a delay in delivery that is not in my control?
Please retain your Australia Post receipt as proof of delivery date. As this is out of your control, we will not charge you the late fee.
What if I want to keep the book or extend a rental?
Pay the difference between the Jekkle list price and any rental fees already incurred, plus a $5 administration fee, and the book is yours to keep! Please email email@example.com and we can process the purchase. If you wish to extend a rental, please contact us. Generally the extension fees are $5 for an additional month. If you wish to extend for another Semester, the amount will be 50% of what you paid for your initial Semester (we advise that you purchase out the book instead though as it works out cheaper!).
You sell used textbooks, but how do I know what the condition is like?
We ensure that all our used textbooks are in excellent condition. Majority of our textbooks will have little to no highlighting. As they have been used, we do not provide active access codes with used textbooks.
Online Access Codes
As online access codes are designed for one user, we cannot guarantee that you will be receiving an online access code with used textbooks. These online access codes are available for sale separately.
Do you accept cash / EFT / PayPal for rentals?
No, we generally only accept credit/debit card for rental purchases. If you do select EFT, we require the full list price as a deposit (the difference will be refunded on return of the book).
Jekkle Price Promise - Lowest Price Guarantee
Jekkle’s Price Promise to you is to ensure that every one of our textbooks are offered to you at the lowest price possible. You won’t find your textbooks cheaper anywhere else, not the Uni bookstore or any other Australian online retailer. If you do find an in-stock textbook from another Australian retailer (i.e. a retailer who ships books from an Australian address) that is lower than a textbook on www.jekkle.com.au, we will beat the price!
We stand by our price promise.
