Article 12 – Payment

1. Fietscomfort only handles advance payments and pre-approved credit card payments. Fietscomfort works with a specialized and reliable party: Mollie Payment provider.

Fietscomfort uses the following payment methods:

iDeal: iDEAL is an online payment system developed by Dutch banks. iDEAL is a very trusted and also the most widely used online payment method in the Netherlands. With iDEAL the consumer is redirected from the payment environment of Fietscomfort to his own internet banking environment to make the payment.

PayPal

With PayPal, every consumer can pay for his or her purchases on the Internet directly online. PayPal offers consumers a lot of protection and is available in 190 countries. In cooperation with Mollie, PayPal accepts 18 different currencies including:

€ EUR, $ USD, $ AUD, $ CAD, £ GBP

The consumer must create his own PayPal account, which payment methods a consumer can choose from depends on his own choices. If a consumer wants to pay via PayPal using his credit card or his bank account, he must first link it to his PayPal account. There is also the option of depositing a balance in the PayPal account. So PayPal is a user-friendly payment method for consumers.

: Both domestic and international. Wire transfer, also known as wire transfer or bank transfer, is a trusted payment method used to pay online both nationally and internationally.

Mollie handles direct processing of online credit card payments for: MasterCard, Visa and American Express. These are the 3 major credit cards which cover no less than 99% of the Dutch market and 95% of the international market. The Mollie Payment Engine supports credit card transactions in different currencies. The credit card payment screens are therefore multilingual.

Payment method for Belgium: Bancontact/Mister Cash

Since 2006, it has been possible for Belgian consumers to make online payments with Mister Cash. A payment with Mister Cash is very simple for the consumer. On the payment page, one selects Mister Cash as the payment method. Then a secure connection is made and the customer can select his own bank. After this he enters his familiar online banking environment and can log in. In the follow-up screen, he can then complete his payment.

Sofortbanking (formerly DirectEbanking) is a simple and direct payment method used internationally. With sofortbanking, consumers at home and abroad can easily pay for an order by means of a bank transfer via their online banking system. sofortbanking is similar to an online bank transfer and, although the usual receipt period for bank transfers also applies here, confirmation that the transfer has been initiated by the consumer’s bank can be given immediately. In addition, sofortbanking has a low threshold because a consumer does not need to create an account, does not need to load a suspense account and does not need a credit card. sofortbanking complies with high security standards regarding online banking and has a TÜV-tested protection of personal data.

It is important to note that sofortbanking vs. payment methods such as iDEAL and a regular bank transfer is not a guaranteed payment method.

2. Unless otherwise agreed, the amounts owed by the consumer must be paid within 14 days after the start of the reflection period as referred to in article 6 paragraph 1. In case of an agreement to provide a service, this period starts after the consumer has received the confirmation of the agreement.

3. When selling products to consumers, general terms and conditions may never stipulate an advance payment of more than 50%. Where advance payment is stipulated, the consumer may not assert any rights regarding the execution of the order or service(s) in question before the stipulated advance payment has been made.

4. The consumer has the duty to immediately report inaccuracies in payment data provided or mentioned to the entrepreneur.

5. In case of non-payment by the consumer, the entrepreneur has, subject to legal restrictions, the right to charge reasonable costs made known in advance to the consumer.

Article 13 – Complaints procedure

1. The entrepreneur has a sufficiently publicized complaint procedure and handles the complaint in accordance with this complaint procedure.

2. Complaints about the implementation of the agreement must be submitted to the entrepreneur within a reasonable time, fully and clearly described, after the consumer has found the defects.

3. Complaints submitted to the entrepreneur will be answered within a period of 14 days from the date of receipt. If a complaint requires a foreseeably longer processing time, the entrepreneur will respond within the 14-day period with a notice of receipt and an indication of when the consumer can expect a more detailed answer.

4. If the complaint cannot be resolved by mutual agreement, a dispute arises that is amenable to the dispute settlement procedure.

Article 14 – Disputes.

1. Contracts between the entrepreneur and the consumer to which these general terms and conditions relate are exclusively governed by Dutch law.

Article 15 – Additional or different provisions

Additional provisions or provisions deviating from these general conditions may not be to the detriment of the consumer and must be recorded in writing or in such a way that they can be stored by the consumer in an accessible manner on a durable data carrier.
