Beth, Our Lady Of Grace

I’ve been working with Rivistas for about three years now and I can only say what great people they are to work with. Anytime our library had any type of magazine problem, Rivistas was quick to resolve it to great satisfaction. They stay on top of everything and make my job easier. The selection of publications is outstanding.

Online Review, Community Library

Using Rivistas has been so EASY – easy to order, renew, add titles, find the titles we want, the pricing structure, and most of all – the customer support. I really feel that we are getting a bargain with Rivistas for all they offer. In all my years of using jobbers, this has been the easiest.

Online Review, Public Library Customer

So refreshing to deal with a subscription service that is helpful and responsive. With a previous service it was always “we’re not responsible” for this or that, & “you have to call the publisher direct.” Rivistas acts as our representative and helps solve any questions or problems promptly.

Online Review, Public Library Customer

After changing to Rivistas, our library realizes that personal service is still alive! Whatever the issue, (ex: missing or damaged periodicals) a very timely response helps us to be able to provide our patrons with the service they deserve. Thank you Rivistas, we are very happy to be on-board with you!

Online Review, Another Happy Customer

I moved my subscriptions to Rivistas this past year and I’m so glad I did. Rivistas is a small, family-owned business that prides itself on its personal touch. Any time I’ve needed to email or call, I receive a quick, personal response. Their customer service is superior and, frankly, a breath of fresh air after dealing with large jobbers.

Online Review, High School Library

The staff at Rivistas is awesome! They work with you and they are very patient with you and your system for being paid. They are prompt in responding to emails and I am glad you can see your invoice online.

Beth, High School Library

Rivistas is so easy and helpful to work with! They make it so much easier ordering magazines.

Jennifer, Public Library Customer

Rivistas has been very easy to work with, and has provided quick answers to my questions. Being able to control my account and renewals online has been very helpful.

Shelly, Elementary Media Center

Rivistas has been easy to work with. When I was adding our smallish number of magazine subscriptions to our K-8 school library, when large vendors were unresponsive, Rivistas met our need. Their website is convenient. Their response is always immediate. Communication is always relevant, they do not fill my in-box with advertising (much appreciated!).

Online Review, K-8 School Library

Our library has been working with Rivistas for about two years now. We find them to be extremely responsive and helpful with our needs. Emails are answered in a very professional and timely manner and any problems that we have with our subscriptions are addressed same day. Bonnie is especially helpful to our library.

Barb, Public Library Customer

We have been with Rivistas for a few years and are glad we switched. Their prices were far less than what we had been paying and their customer service is excellent. Thank you!

Kate, Public Library Customer

We have worked with Rivistas Subscription Services for many years. It makes tracking our numerous magazine/newspaper/journal subscriptions easy and efficient. It is very easy to claim a missing/damaged/duplicate issue, and the staff is very timely in responding to those claims. They help to get them resolved quickly. As someone who is new to this check-in process, they are also very understanding if I accidentally claim something incorrectly. They are always very helpful and friendly in their exchanges!
