Order Information : Card Security Checks
Helmet City uses Braintree to process our Card Payments. Braintree use very stringent security checks to protect us and our customers from card fraud. On rare occasions an order is flagged as a 'Risk' by Braintree and Helmet City must investigate further. This may be due to a number of reasons, but mainly it is because the card used is from a different country to the delivery address or the delivery address given is not known to Braintree or your bank. Also a customer must use the actual card billing address or this can also cause an issue. We will in these cases contact you and ask for additional information to be supplied - normally proof of address for the card used and proof that the card owner works at the delivery address. To avoid any problems if you are paying from abroad, we recommend you click 'Pay using PayPal' - a PayPal account is not required. Please do not be offended if we contact you for further information! In some very rare occasions an order may be flagged as 'High Risk' and these will be automatically cancelled and refunded, as we cannot confirm any details you send us match the card used. The order will have to placed again and the correct card/address details entered. Please do not be offended, we cannot accept 'High Risk' payments. For very high value orders, Helmet City may ask for a proof of address - Water/Gas/Electricity Bill to confirm the customer lives at the address given.
Paying for your product - Exchange Rates
If paying in a Currency other than GBP (£), there may be an exchange rate difference applied by your Bank or PayPal, after you have placed the order. This is NOT applied by Helmet City and may be more than the amount shown on our website. Helmet City is NOT responsible for this difference. The Currency Rates shown on our website are automatically checked and updated regularly based on the latest Exchange Rates, but can of course be higher or lower. Try this website http://www.xe.com/
The exchange rate is for information purposes only; it does not provide binding prices for an exchange. In practice, for individual exchanges, the prices for buying and selling currencies can deviate to a greater or lesser extent from these rates – depending on the country, financial institution or bureau de change and also the method of payment. The conversion is given as an indication only.
Some Pre-Paid Credit Cards are not accepted, please contact your bank if you are having problems.
Helmet / Comms Bundle VAT Saving Offer
If you purchase a Helmet and Comms System together in order to make the comms VAT saving of 16.66%, if just the Helmet is returned the saving will be deducted from the helmet refund as it will no longer be a VAT free pruchase.

A Free Gift can be exchanged for a different size - if boots for example. If you decide you do not want the Free Gift after receipt, NO refund for that Free Gift will be given.
