How do I place order and how does registration work?
There are two options for you to register if you would like to order something from the FC-Moto online shop. You can register a new account first and come back later to order or you can create an account while you are ordering.
Click the “Account” button (in the top right corner) if you want to start by creating an account.
- Click “Login” at the bottom left and you will see the section “Registration”. Clicking that field will open the first registration page.
- Please fill out all relevant fields.
- All fields with an * must be filled out, otherwise the registration cannot be completed.
You can, of course, register at a later time if you prefer – when you place your first order.
- Click the shopping cart and then “Checkout”, then you will see
- Login for existing customers
- Order and new customer registration
Why do I have to register at all?
- We want to offer you the best possible service!
- We keep our customers informed about latest developments via email during the entire order process: you will receive an order confirmation and you will also be notified when your order is shipped.
The order process did not complete successfully – there was some problem with my login information?
- Did you change anything about your customer account lately – maybe your address?
- Please contact customer service in that case, we will be happy to check your account and get you logged in again.
I forgot or lost my password.
- Please click “Forgotten password”.
- You will then be forwarded to another page via a link, where you can create a new password.
How do I enter my address correctly?
- Please fill out each field with the requested information.
- A little pop-up with information on how to fill out the field correctly will appear if you skip anything by accident.
How can I see if a product is in stock and why are there products I cannot select?
- You can see at a glance, which products are available and which are not.
- Once you select a particular size or model, you will see if it is in stock (e.g. “ships in 2-3 days”).
- A crossed out size or model means that the item is out of stock. It can no longer be selected and you can’t click the shopping cart either. A crossed out item means that we will unfortunately not be stocking the product any more in future.
How do I find the right size for me?
- Sizes can differ from one manufacturer to the next, which is why we recommend using our size guides for orientation.
- Please note that we receive these size guides from the relevant manufacturer and should be regarded as a rough guide only.
- In the end, clothing will always have to be tried on to make sure it fits.
- We offer an exchange/returns service in case you do order something that doesn’t fit.
What is the phone number for customer service and at what times can I reach them?
- You can reach us by phone from Monday to Friday between 10 am and 4 pm (CET) and the number is +49 (0) 2405 / 49 500 50
To which email address should I send a written request?
- Please use our contact form to send us any written messages.
Can I contact a store person directly by phone?

Can I reserve specific items?
- We can unfortunately not reserve items by phone or email.
- We do, however, offer our customers a “Pickup at the store” service: You can reserve up to 10 items at our store for you to come and look at or try out.
- This service is completely free and you will only pay at the store for those items you actually buy.
- There is no pressure to buy any of the reserved items if none of them suit.
- “Pickup at the store” is recommended particularly if you are unsure about which size to order, as you can try on various sizes to find the one that fits.
- We also recommend “Pickup at the store” if you are travelling far to get to us – just imagine you come all that way and then the item you want is not in stock!
How does “Pickup at the store” actually work?
- Log in with your customer account.
- Place up to 10 items into your shopping cart.
- Continue with the order process until you get to the shipping type selection: You can choose DHL, UPS and “Pickup at the store”.
- Select “Pickup at the store” and the payment type “Pickup at the store” will be automatically selected. You will not be charged and it will not cost anything.
- You will receive an email notification from us, once all your selected items are available at the store. Please wait for this notification before visiting thee store to avoid disappointment! Some of the items may not be available at the store and will have to be ordered from outlying warehouses or may have to be reordered from the manufacturer. We would therefore appreciate a few days of your patience.
- The products will be reserved for you for 14 days at the store, once you have received your email notification. The reservation will be automatically lifted, once the 14 days have passed.
- Please notify our customer service in good time if for some reason you won’t be able to visit the store within those 14 days, but are still interested in the items.

Can I add an item to a current order?
- We can add any number of items to you order – but only if you selected cash on delivery or prepayment as your payment option. Please note that the shipping costs may have to be adjusted.

Returns are free of charge to you within Germany. Please visit our Returns Portal for more information.
Items must be returned within 30 day of parcel delivery. The item must be unused and in its original packaging.
We will proceed according to your stated preference on the returns slip (exchange or money back), once we have received the item. You can also choose a different item instead: should prices for the returned item and the new item differ, we will either refund the difference or send you an invoice for the outstanding amount.
What happens if something doesn’t fit?
- We offer our customers the opportunity to exchange (see also How and when can I exchange or return an item?) purchased products within 30 days of their receipt.

Are returns free of charge to me?
- We offer free returns in Germany via our returns portal at http://www.fc-moto.de/retoure.
- Unfortunately, that service is not available in any other country.

Can I exchange products I bought at the online shop at the FC-Noto store?
- Unfortunately, such an exchange will not be possible, as our online sales and store sales are managed separately.
- You can, on the other hand, drop the returns parcel complete with the returns slip at the store in person to save shipping costs. Our colleagues at the store will forward the parcel for you.
- Please note that processing will take a few days and we cannot offer an immediate refund at the store or an exchange for another item from our store.
What do I do if I have a complaint?
- You can send the item back to us and we will lodge a complaint with the manufacturer for you.
- Please make sure to include the filled out returns slip complete with your reason for complaint and a copy of your invoice in the parcel with the returned item. The item must be clean.
- Where the complaint is a warranty issue, we will repair or replace right away, depending on the type and extent of the damage. In cases, where the damage inspection finds that the damage is not a warranty issue, we will refuse repairs or exchange for a new item.
- We have no influence over claims processing times of our manufacturers, which means that it may take some time until we receive a reply.
How long is the warranty period?
- The statutory warranty period is 2 years.
- Some manufacturers offer extended warranty beyond the legal requirements.
- Once the 2 years have elapsed, please contact the manufacturer directly with any claims.
What can I do if I receive a damaged or wrong item?
- Please send a photograph of the item by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- In case of a damaged item, please send a photograph that clearly depicts the damage.
- In case of an incorrect delivery, please also add a photograph of the barcode and the label on the item.
- We will get back to you as soon as we have verified the matter.
- Should the error be attributed to us, then we can offer you either a returns label or a free return of the incorrect item(s); in countries where that is not possible, we will refund the shipping costs.
- In the latter case, we will need a copy of the shipping invoice for the refund.
