You will need to register to be able to access some services on the rapha.cc website (our “site”). When you register your details online, you are required to make sure that this information is accurate, current and a true representation of your personal details. You are also responsible for maintaining your personal information via your online account as well as for keeping your password secret.
The Terms of Service together with all our policies and procedures will be governed by and construed in accordance to the relevant United Kingdom law and the relevant courts of the United Kingdom will have exclusive jurisdiction.
Once your order is complete, you will be requested to provide personal and payment details. As part of the online transaction, we will perform a fraud credit check via our payment provider Cybersource. By submitting a payment through the site, you are granting permission for us to carry out such checks via Cybersource as required.
Orders on the site are subject to the required stock availability. Items added to your basket on the site will not be reserved for you, and are available for sale to other customers browsing the online store at the same time.
When you have finalised your order via the site, stock will be reserved for your purchase. However, sales will not be confirmed until the order dispatches from the warehouse, and payment is successfully taken.
Stock availability is determined by your delivery address, subject to stock availability at the warehouse in your locale. We are unable to offer customers stock from warehouses outside of their delivery-address service area.
All site pricing will be shown in local currency where available, and otherwise priced in US Dollars (USD). Payments are currently accepted in the following currencies: British pounds (GBP), US dollars (USD), Canadian dollars (CAD), Euros (EUR), Swiss francs (CHF), Japanese yen (JPY), Norwegian kroner (NOK), Swedish kronor (SEK), Danish kroner (DKK) and New Taiwan dollars (TWD). Orders can only be placed in the currency relating to your shipping country, and we are unable to offer alternative currency pricing to any customer.
All UK and EU pricing is shown inclusive of tax. Rapha uses a standard pricing policy for the UK and Channel Islands which ensures that all of our customers are charged the same final price, regardless of where they live. We do not offer VAT refunds on orders delivered to the Channel Islands. All total prices for goods displayed on the checkout page represent the total price payable by the customer for those items, regardless of the address for delivery. For EU deliveries, this price includes VAT (or VAT equivalent) at the current rate. Although this price is the same for deliveries outside the EU, where VAT (or VAT equivalent) may not be applicable, customers are not entitled to any discount or refund to account for the differences in tax treatment.
These customers will pay the same price for the item as a customer placing an order for delivery to the EU. Other components of the total price at the checkout, including delivery charge, may vary for each customer.
Import duties and taxes may be applied by your local authority. It is a legal requirement that we declare the full transaction value of the contents of all packages. Local import duties and taxes are levied by the carrier on behalf of the local customs authority.
US and Canada pricing is shown exclusive of sales tax, and sales tax may be added at the checkout, once the delivery address has been confirmed. No import duty is due on US orders, as these ship from within the United States. Canadian pricing is inclusive of import duty (see DDP below).
5. Duty Delivery Paid (DDP)
Pricing in the following territories is inclusive of duty and tax:
Switzerland, Japan, Norway, Canada (applicable tax shown at checkout)
Orders in these territories will be sent duty paid, meaning that no further import duty or tax will be payable after the order has been placed on the site.
6. Sale pricing adjustments
From time to time, Rapha will run discounted pricing on specific items as part of a sale or promotion. Subject to the sentence below, Rapha is happy to compensate the difference in price between the amount paid and the discounted price, in the form of a voucher, if the item was purchased at full price within 14 days of the commencement of the specific discount.
Please note that we are not able to offer any refund or voucher if the same item (inc. colour/size) is not in stock at the specific delivery address warehouse, as seen on Rapha.cc at the time of the request, or if the item was originally purchased at a discounted sale price, or if we have already provided a price match on the order.
7. Payment & Order Acceptance
We accept the following payment types on our site:
Union Pay (Credit only)
Gift vouchers and e-vouchers
Please note that travel trips cannot be purchased via Paypal.
Payments for all orders are taken on dispatch of goods, and are subject to fraud checks and checks by the card issuer.
By submitting your order on our site, you are confirming that the credit/debit card is yours or that you have authority from the cardholder to make the payment. We reserve the right to refuse payments & orders for customers who are not 18 years of age or older.
We will process your payments securely via the Adyen payments system, and all payment details will be encrypted. All stored card details will be stored securely on Adyen's secure servers.
Your payment and order will only be deemed as final when final payment is taken on dispatch of your goods. We reserve the right to refuse any payments or cancel orders at our own discretion.

Gift vouchers and e-vouchers (“Vouchers”) cannot be bought using discount or promotional codes, and cannot be purchased with another Voucher.

Vouchers must be redeemed within twelve months of purchase and any unused balance will not be refunded or credited after such time.
Any balance credited from a part-redeemed Voucher must be used in the same currency as the first purchase it was redeemed with.
We are unable to replace vouchers if they are lost, stolen or damaged.
9. Returns & Exchanges
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you can return it for an exchange or refund, provided it is within 30 days of receipt of your order and the item is as new and in the original packaging. All returns for orders over 28 days old must be sent back to Rapha within one month of the refund or exchange request being made. We reserve the right to refuse refunds for returned items, which are not in saleable condition.
Faulty items will either be replaced, repaired or refunded following evaluation by the Rapha Customer Services team. For the avoidance of doubt, faulty goods are classified as items that are received damaged or develop a manufacturing fault. Items damaged through general wear and tear are not classified as faulty. Faulty items can returned within twelve (12) months for a replacement or a repair. If this is not possible, we will offer a refund or credit voucher.
Returns are only accepted online for items purchased directly from Rapha.cc. If you have purchased your item from a Clubhouse, you should return the item directly to the Clubhouse where the item was purchased.
Products purchased as gifts can be refunded in full to the original purchaser; alternatively we can provide a credit in the form of a voucher to the gift recipient. Rapha is unable to refund postage on returned gift items.
Gift exchanges will show on the order history of the original purchaser. Please include a suitable delivery address for us to despatch exchanged products to.
