Payment must be made by credit card, PayPal, or any other prearranged payment method agreed to by Us. Your order is subject to cancellation by Us, in Our sole discretion.

Shipping; Taxes; Title; Risk of Loss
Shipping, handling, and tax are additional unless otherwise expressly indicated at the time of sale. All items purchased from Us are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to You upon Our delivery to the carrier. You must notify Us within 3 days of the date of Your invoice or acknowledgement if You believe any part of Your purchase is missing, wrong, or damaged.
We endeavor to ship your purchase within 3 business days of receiving your order. The time it takes to receive Your order depends on the shipping method You choose during checkout, and the time of day You place Your order. We offer the following delivery estimates:
- Ground delivery: arrives within 5-7 Business Days from shipping confirmation; and
- Express 2nd day delivery: arrives in 2 Business Days from shipping confirmation.
The aforementioned delivery estimates are mere estimates subject to the acceptance and approval of Your order. Additionally, deliveries can take longer in certain remote areas. As such, the delivery estimates shall not bind RIEDEL, nor shall they serve as a basis for imposing liability upon RIEDEL for any shipment that fails to meet these estimated delivery dates. “Business Days” are defined as Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, excluding federally recognized United States holidays.
Orders 99 USD or more will be delivered free. No promo code needed. Valid on standard U.S. ground shipping to U.S. delivery addresses in the 48 continental states only. We do not offer Saturday shipping. Not valid for Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. territories, P.O. Boxes, and APO/FPO addresses.
We will send You several emails during the order process to keep You informed about the different stages of Your order. In addition, Your MYRIEDEL account will allow you to follow your order status. In order to get more precise information on delivery delays for your area, or to reschedule your delivery, do not hesitate to contact our customer service on 1-888-4-RIEDEL (1-888-474-3335) or via e-mail to email@example.com.
If You are looking to cancel an order that was recently placed, please immediately contact our customer service on 1-888-4-RIEDEL (1-888-474-3335) or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and one of Our Support Reps will be able to help out. Once an order has been placed, there is a very short timeframe in which We can cancel the order, so We cannot guarantee that We will be able to cancel Your order. All orders typically ship out within 1 - 3 Business Days. Should cancellation not be possible, You can refuse delivery of the package, and a refund will be issued minus shipping costs upon return receipt of the package.
For security reasons, we unfortunately cannot make address changes once an order has been placed. UPS will make three attempts to deliver Your package to the provided address, and after the third attempt Your will be able to arrange for pickup from the nearest UPS facility. Otherwise, the shipment will be returned to Our warehouse and a refund will be processed for the Products.

- The reason(s) for the return must be documented on the packing slip and inserted in the shipping box;
- The Product return label must be completed as instructed and affixed on the shipping box.
- All packages must be returned prepaid.
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of receipt; however, in most cases You will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for Us to receive your return (5 to 10 Business Days), the time it takes Us to process Your return once We receive it (3 to 5 Business Days), and the time it takes Your bank to process Our refund request (5 to 10 Business Days). After successful completion of the refund You will find a credit on Your credit card statement.
Please note that this policy applies only to items purchased on the Site. RIEDEL will not accept returns for Products purchased on third-party websites or any retail store.

Handmade Products or handmade Product parts may be subject to sample and size deviations. All such deviations between Products, in particular compared to earlier deliveries of the same Product, therefore do not constitute a defect and do not entitle to warranty claims.

If RIEDEL, for whatever reason, chooses not to provide You with a replacement Product, You will be entitled to demand a price reduction or, if the defect is substantial, a refund for Your purchase.
