I ordered all my books (~50) from BD. Their shipping is fine, about 2-3 weeks, and it's free. When you consider that the prices are 20-30% cheaper than local, it is quite good.

Call Singpost. Do you have any reference or tracking number? Singpost will be able to tell you whether its still w them at their headquarter paya lebar or not.
You gave the wrong address to BD?

Used it a couple of times with no issues. Shipping takes about 2 weeks but I'm fine with that because it's free!

My first order of 4 books came 3 weeks later. Individual package and in good condition. I ordered another 10 more books (10% discount) and hopefully all will arrive safely.

Bought from them 3 times already.

First time, the package was lost so I consulted the CSO and they immediately sent a replacement. Overall, if you don't mind the waiting time, they are pretty decent. At least I don't have to forcefully rack up to $120 and order from Amazon.

Buy from there regularly. Really more worth it. I compared prices for some fiction novels and it's cheaper from BD. Even with Popular card still more exp to buy here.

Bought from them a few times. Good selection, proper delivery. No complaints. Only other competitor that I think comes close is Opentrolley Singapore.
