Returns & Refunds Policy

We have a 30-day return policy, which means you have 30 days after receiving your item to request a return.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, with tags, and in its original packaging. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase.

To start a return, you can contact us at info@zeitbike.com. If your return is accepted, we’ll send you instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted.

You can always contact us for any return question at info@zeitbike.com.


Damages and issues

Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right.

Restocking fees and return shipping fees

Returns are subject to restocking fee of 20% of the purchase price. ZEITBIKE may assess the restocking fees against the customer’s account or deduct the fees from the refund amount.

ZEITBIKE does NOT charge for restocking fees or return shipping labels for returns of defective items through no fault of your own, or if you received the wrong item, or if we have made some other shipping error, provided the item is within its return policy period. 

For returns of unopened items that are returned in the original condition as shipped within the return policy period, ZEITBIKE does NOT charge for restocking fees, but customers are responsible for any return shipping costs.

Apparel and Lubricants/Cleaners

Apparel items must be packed in their original garment bag (or equivalent plastic bag protection or fine boxing and paper layers) and include all original tags. The plastic bag or cardboard box protects the item from the outer, bigger cardboard box.  Items packaged without this protection most likely will arrive scuffed and will be returned to the customer.

Cleaners and Lubricants must be shipped back in their original bottle, box and include all fluids.

Shades and sunglasses shall not have any dust or dirt on them, as that is a sign of usage. We need the original case, all the little content, and the outer cardboard box.

Unused items that are returned with missing or damaged packaging, tags, components, or hangers may be returned to the customer or subject to an additional processing fee of up to 20% of the merchandise cost based on the availability of those missing or damaged components.


Electronics, Hard Parts, Tools, Tires

Any electronic which has been removed from packaging or manufacturer seal broken is non-returnable.

Any part, which has been installed or shows signs of attempting to be installed on a bike is non-returnable.

Any Tool or Chemical that has been opened or seal broken is non-returnable.

Open box items for which the packaging has been destroyed are not returnable.


Warranty Returns

Most manufacturers offer an additional warranty period, which covers against merchandise defects. To determine warranty requirements for a specific item, please contact the manufacturer or contact us for assistance.

Please note warranty processing may take 4-8 weeks and will be subject to the individual manufacturer's policies and discretion. Manufacturer warranties do not cover defects determined to be caused by normal wear or due to customer negligence.

International Returns

International shipments should be marked as a "Merchandise Return" with a carrier that does not levy brokerage fees. Customer is responsible for any applicable brokerage or customs charges.

Any items shipped COD or having additional brokerage fees that are charged to ZEITBIKE upon delivery will be rejected.


Exceptions / non-returnable items

Certain types of items cannot be returned, like perishable goods (such as food, flowers, or plants), custom products (such as special orders or personalized items), and personal care goods (such as beauty products). We also do not accept returns for hazardous materials, flammable liquids, or gases. Please get in touch if you have questions or concerns about your specific item.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards.

Exchanges

The fastest way to ensure you get what you want is to return the item you have, and once the return is accepted, make a separate purchase for the new item.


Refunds

We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
