Why are tyres at reifendirekt.de so much cheaper?
The following quote sums up the reason from ADAC 3/2000 (German equivalent of the AA)
"The price spans listed in the table (without balancing and fitting costs) are based on a nation-wide dealer survey carried out in December 1999. Prices listed serve only as an
approximate benchmark and may vary strongly from dealer to dealer. The reason: tyre manufacturers sell their products at very different prices - Criteria such as quantity or time of order
have a direct influence on the dealer's purchase price. The dealer is forced to recalculate prices to adapt to market values. Price-conscious customers should take their time to compare

Paying via the Internet
What payment methods are available via the Internet?
We offer payment by cheque, credit card or cash.
Due to media reports, many online buyers are under the impression that secure and safe payment via the net is nearly impossible. In actual fact, online customers can choose between
several different types of payment.
You submit your order via the internet, but this does not mean that the payment flows back the same way. Misuse of credit cards cannot take place. "Paying via credit card" lists some
small precautionary steps to ensure the safety of your data. Listed below is some preliminary information about payment in general, not just within the internet.
Pre-payments per cheque or credit card
With this form of payment, you must pay before you receive the goods. The disadvantage is that you cannot inspect the product for damages or defects before paying. If you have a defective
product, it might be more difficult to get your money back. Refunding can sometimes be problematic.
If you are thinking about returning goods, e.g. because the size might not fit, you should choose a different payment method. Check if the dealer will exchange the product or refund the
money, if you decide to return the product. Make a note if packaging and shipping costs are covered by the dealer or if you will have to pay the return costs.
Important: Check the Terms and Conditions. If the dealer does not explicitly state that return packaging and shipping costs will not be carried, you can refuse to pay any additional
charges on delivery, and return the goods free of charge.
Due to our competitively low prices we cannot accept payment on invoice. If you are not satisfied with our service, send the tyres back to us as stated in our Return Policy (please
contact us to find out the return address), we will credit the buying price to your account.
Payment per credit card
Online shopping using your credit card is safe and easy. To pay online, the credit card holder will be asked to enter the credit card number and expiry date. Next, this data is sent to
the dealer. The dealer then checks with the respective credit card company if the data is correct and if sufficient funds are available. If the inquiry is positive, the dealer can
immediately start sending out the goods. If you want to be on the safe side, you should only buy in SSL online shops. These shops are marked by a yellow-coloured lock in the bottom
left-hand corner of the browser window. This lock indicates that your connection to your dealer is safe. The data verification takes place automatically. Your browser detects if it is
connecting with a secure site.
