UPDATE MARCH 2022
Terms and Conditions and Policies for Cancellations and Returns may be changed at any time without prior notice.
Due to hostilities in Europe and overall worldwide economic conditions, that we are all experiencing, the manufacturer has notified Walking Bike Americas that our shipment of The Walking Bikes has been delayed until January / February 2023.
As a result of this delay, parts availability for warranty issues and for those wanting extra parts for their current Lopifit bike will also be delayed.
Additionally, our normal shipping, order cancellation, return and refund policies will be suspended until such time as manufacturing is back to normal and bikes can be delivered in the usual timely fashion.
These delays are being caused by the recent lockdown in China, parts supply chain issues and over ocean freight shipping restrictions and backlog around the world. These issues are completely beyond the control of both Walking Bike Americas and that of the manufacturer as well.
Due to this delay, Walking Bike Americas has had no choice but to reduce its staffing significantly during this time. We will be returning phone calls when our valued client has left us a message, and we will be answering all email inquires as fast of possible. We will generally not be available for many inbound phone calls.
Please be assured that we are still moving forward as fast as we can with the manufacturing and sales of our amazing electric walking bike to meet the worldwide demand and interest in our bike. All of those who have ordered a bike will receive their bike at the earliest possible opportunity.
Attempted and Unauthorized Chargebacks
Consumers are required to request a refund in writing to Walking Bike Americas via the USPS or other carrier who can supply a tracking number for said request in a registered letter format prior to arbitrarily attempting to cancel their order or purchase. All related fees, surcharges etc. plus a 25% Cancellation Fee will be deducted from any refund, if offered, as a result of this type of unauthorized cancellation attempts.
Within the United States: Over Ground Freight shipping from certified DOT carrier.
Domestic packages typically arrive 3-10 business days from date shipped.
Items will generally be shipped within 72 hours from the time of purchase when stock is on hand.
When the stock is not on hand, the bike(s) will be shipped within 72 hours of clearance and release of the bikes from US Customs direct to the consumer at the shipping address provided by the consumer.
We can ship bikes all around the world. Please contact us to go over the details for international shipping. The Consumer will be responsible for the cost of each Walking Bike and all related shipping, customs and duty charges into the respective country the bike(s) is being shipped to.
Due to the overwhelming demand for our amazing electric walking bike, Walking Bike America's production capabilities has historically not been able to keep up with demand. Therefore, Walking Bike America's offers a reservation list system that allows consumers who have made the decision to purchase a bike to pay for the bike in full which will guarantee the consumer a bike in the color of their choice from the upcoming shipment of bikes. The consumers placement on the reservations list is on a first paid first reserved basis. Any consumer who does not wish purchase the bike and be placed on the reservations list can wait for the shipment to arrive and contact us to see if bikes are available from any given shipment.
ORDER CANCELLATION POLICY – STOCK ON HAND
Once an order has been processed there is a minimum "restocking fee" of twenty percent (20%). If a consumer places an order for a Walking Bike to be shipped to their location and then decides to cancel their order prior to the bike being processed and prepared for shipment, the consumer will receive a 80% refund of the total amount collected.
If the consumer decides to cancel their order after the carrier has picked up the bike and the bike is en route, the consumer will receive a 70% refund of the total amount collected less all shipping and freight charges and or other fees and costs incurred by Walking Bke Americas and its agents.
ORDER CANCELATION POLICY – STOCK NOT ON HAND
As mentioned above, as a result of the overwhelming demand for our electric walking bicycle, Walking Bike America's and our production facilities cannot keep up with that demand. This means that from time to time our worldwide network of independent distributors will have to create a reservation list for consumers interested in purchasing a Walking bike. Reservations for a bike to be delivered in the near future are taken on a first come first paid deposit basis.
In the event Walking Bike America's does not have stock on hand to ship a bike to a consumer immediately upon the submission of their order, Walking Bike America's uses the reservation list method to take reservations from a consumer wanting to be guaranteed a Walking bike from the next container arriving for distribution in its region. Consumers are required to submit a one hundred percent (100%) deposit at the time the order is placed based on the cost of each bike and related shipping and handling and processing costs to secure their bike reservation.
Generally speaking, and to the beat of Walking Bike Americas and the manufacturers ability, the consumer can expect the next container to arrive at the US port of entry within 90 to 120 days from the day the reservation is made. Walking Bike America's remains in regular contact with its consumers who have reserved a bike(s) with shipping updates, delivery schedules etc.
However, due to the factors mentioned above and the costs incurred by Walking Bike Americas and the manufacturer, if a consumer cancels their Walking Bike order after Walking Bike Americas has submitted their order and paid the manufacturer for their bike(s), and the Consumer decides to cancel their order prior to the container arriving at the US Port of Entry, clearing customs and being released to Walking Bike Americas, the Consumer will be charged a 25% restocking fee. Additionally, the Consumer understands that their refund will only be processed after Walking Bike Americas has secured the sale of the cancelled bike(s) to another buyer. Once the bike has been resold, the Consumer who cancelled their order will be reimbursed seventy five percent (75%) of the initial purchase price less any other fees, surcharges , etc. that Walking Bike Americas and or the manufacturer have incurred. Reimbursement payments will be processed within sixty days (60) of the cancelled bike(s) being sold.
Walking Bike America's does not offer a return policy for bikes that have been received, unboxed and assembled by a consumer.
Walking Bike America's strongly encourages each potential buyer to take the necessary steps to make sure they want to finalize their purchase and accept receipt of a Walking Bike prior to placing their order and before the bike is shipped and or received by the consumer. We also highly recommend that all consumers contemplating buying a Walking Bike take a test ride on a Walking Bike before placing their order if possible. Contact us and we will work with you to find the closest Walking Bike to your location where a test ride may be made possible prior to the purchase commitment.
