Directly after receipt of the purchase offer you will receive an automatically generated email with which we confirm that we have received your purchase order (order acknowledgement).

Consequences of revocation

For this repayment we use the same payment method that you used for the original transaction, if nothing to the contrary has been agreed with you. Under no circumstances will you be billed fees due to this revocation.
We can refuse repayment until we have received back the goods, or until you have provided proof that you have sent back the goods, whichever comes first.

6.3. For our Swiss customers the shipment will be conveniently pickup up by GLS after notification and a certain lead time. We reimburse you the credit memo amount directly after receipt and inspection of the goods, if payment has already occurred.

7.1. If at the time the order is placed, the ordered goods are not available, reichelt will inform you without delay, and will not accept the purchase order for the goods, so that a contract is not concluded. Any payments that have been made will be reimbursed without delay.
