Need to Cancel
If you need to
cancel an order (or a part of an order), contact us through the Live
Support link at the bottom of the page or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be sure to provide us with the order ID! BikeBandit.com works
extremely hard to fill orders in the shortest amount of time possible.
Orders for OEM parts may be cancelled with no restocking fee within
one hour of being placed. After one hour, cancelled orders for OEM
parts are subject to restocking fees of 20% of the merchandise value.
Orders for all other parts may be cancelled with no restocking fee
provided the order hasn't already entered the shipping process!
Why does BikeBandit.com
charge restocking fees on cancelled OEM parts orders? We return all
cancelled OEM parts to the manufacturer and in doing so face two charges:
the cost to return the item to the manufacturer and a restocking fee
charged to us by the manufacturer. BikeBandit.com will cover this
return shipping expense but we pass on a portion of the restocking
fee charged to us by the manufacturer.
Combining Orders / Adding Items to Your
orders cannot be combined nor can items be added to an existing order.
The BikeBandit.com system automatically routes orders to our suppliers
based on their previous performance. This means that two orders from
the same customer placed seconds apart may actually be routed to and
filled by two different suppliers. We cannot add parts into an existing
order because BikeBandit.com does not store credit card data online
for security purposes.
