When you support one of our crowdfunding campaigns by paying a certain amount, the crowdfunding platform charges a transaction fee, which may be non-refundable. Such fee is regarded a third-party payment fee similar to credit card fees. At present the transaction fee at the Indiegogo platform is 8% of the total amount.
In our webshop, we currently accept the following credit cards: Mastercard, Visa and American Express.
We do not charge any fees on credit cards issued within the EU. Payment with a credit card issued outside the EU will be subject to a fee in accordance with the surcharge from our payment gateway “Stripe”.

Use of company credit cards are subject to payment of applicable fees.

You must pay the full cost of returning the product. You are responsible for the returned product being packaged securely. You bear the risk of the product from the time of delivery of the product to you through the return of the product to us.
Because of their nature certain products cannot be returned by normal post. This applies for example to the battery. When returning bicycles and batteries, we recommend using the original packaging which is customized to avoid damaging these items.
Upon receipt of returned goods, we will inspect the condition of the returned item based on its possible resale value and will calculate any loss of value to the returned item. Any such loss of value will be deducted from any amounts due to you.

The condition of the product when you return it
You are responsible for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling of the goods other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. In other words – you can test the product in the same way as if you tested it in a physical store, but you are not entitled to put it into real use.
If the product has been tested in excess of what is described above, we consider it as used product, which means that if withdrawing from the purchase, you can only get part of, or none of, the price reimbursed, depending on the commercial value of the product.
We recommend returning the item in the original packaging. If the original packaging is missing, it may result in a depreciation of the item value. Specifically, when returning bicycles and batteries in non-original packaging, there is a greater risk that the bicycle parts will be damaged and/or impaired.
If you cancel your purchase, you will get your money back. In the event of a diminished value for which you are responsible, this amount will be deducted. We will also deduct third-party transaction costs such as crowdfunding platform fees, credit card fees etc. and additional costs incurred as a result of your own choice of a different form of delivery than the cheapest form of standard delivery which we offer.
If you are using your right of cancellation, we will refund your money within 14 days from the date on which we have received the retuned goods.
We will make the reimbursement to the same means of payment, which you used for the original transaction, unless we have agreed otherwise.
