Still have questions?

Once you receive a notification from us that your bicycle has been sold, the buyer has already paid for the bicycle online. You will receive the payment as soon as the bicycle has been either handed over to our shipping company or personally collected by the buyer.

 

We send everything to pack and ship your bike. You choose a pick up date, and we make sure the shipping company collects the bike. All you have to do is pack your bike. We provide instructions on how to do that here. 

After your bike has been sold, the payment will be processed by our payment service provider Adyen, and collected from the buyer. Once the bike has been handed over, you can easily request a payout through your profile. You will need to verify your bank account for the payout process.

 

Creating an ad for your bicycle is free.

However, there is a small fee of 3.5% of will be deducted from the sale proceeds upon a successful transaction.

For more information on why we charge this fee, click here.

Yes, of course. Based on your bike's model and condition, we'll suggest a selling price for you. This suggested price aims to help you sell within a few days. However, you can adjust the selling price at any time in your profile.

 

If the bike does not match the description in the sales listing, you can return the bike and receive a full refund. We will handle the return process and facilitate the refund with the seller.

The return process usually takes between 5-10 business days.

Please note that a correctly stated but mismatched size is not a valid reason for a return. If the bike has minor undisclosed defects that are easy to repair, we will cover the repair costs.

Return requests and repair requests must be submitted to us through the Return Form within 48 hours of receiving the bike, along with photos of the defects.

 

Shipping typically takes between 7-14 business days from the time of purchase to delivery. Immediately after the purchase, we send packaging material to the seller. An additional check by buycycle usually takes an additional 2-3 business days, assuming no repairs are needed. For shipping from the EU to the USA, customs documents will be requested for your bike, which may delay shipping by 4-5 business days.

Do you need your bike by a specific deadline? Please let us know as soon as possible.

 

If the bike is located nearby, a test ride is no problem. Once you have made the payment for the bike online, you will receive the contact information of the seller. You can now arrange a test ride with the seller directly.  If the bike doesn't meet your expectations or differs from the sales listing, no worries! Simply decline the pickup, and the payment will be automatically canceled and you will get a full refund.

The Buyer Protection (buycycle fee) is a small percentage of the bike's sales price. It’s usually 5%, but it varies with the buyer's country. We charge this fee to keep buyers safe: if there are major discrepancies between the purchased bike and the sales ad, we'll take care of the return.

 

In addition to Germany, we currently offer shipping to the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Slovakia, Spain, Czech Republic, Hungary, Norway, Switzerland, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Bulgaria, USA, UK. If your country isn't listed, feel free to contact us.

 

Yes. As a buyer, you can send offers to the seller. The seller can then accept, reject, or send a counteroffer in return. Send your offer by contacting the seller from the bike's listing. If you don't want to receive offers for your listing, please contact us. 

 
buycycle makes selling and buying pre-owned bikes as easy as any online shop. As a buyer, you buy a bike with a click. We'll ship to you, or you can pick it up. We also keep you safe from scams and fraud. And we offer Buyer Protection for an easy return process. For sellers, we take care of the entire shipping and payment process for you. We send everything needed to pack and ship your bike. We also arrange collection directly from your home. You're always 100% safe with buycycle. 
 

If your payment is declined, this may be due to your bank's daily limit for online transactions. You can usually contact your bank online or by phone to increase the limit. We also have other payment options available, including Affirm. However, please note that payment providers like this need sufficient credit history to authorize high value purchases like bikes.
