FAQ - Frequently asked questions

What does the [*] after a size mean? 

Sizes marked with [*] are already backordered or usually available at short notice and will be shipped as soon as we receive them. You will receive information about the delivery time with the order confirmation. 

What does [*request] mean in the size selection? 

For certain models, you have the option to select [*Request] in the selection menu for sizes. This allows you to order sizes not listed on request. Please understand that we cannot offer you this option for all makes, as we are bound by the conditions of the respective manufacturers. 

What is an exhibition piece? 

We offer showroom pieces at a reduced price on our pages. The higher the discount for a model, the greater the likelihood of blemishes or traces of fitting. 

Payment can be made either by cash on delivery, prepayment, PayPal, credit card or, within Germany, on account via Unzer. Orders from other countries are only processed via prepayment, credit card and PayPal. 

  1. Payment by cash on delivery
    When you receive the goods, you only pay the invoice amount in cash to the delivering parcel service. We will pay the additional cash on delivery and deposit fee for this method of payment.
  2. Payment in advance
    After your successful order, you will receive our bank details for the transfer of the invoice amount by e-mail. When making the transfer, please make sure to state your order number and your cash on delivery in the reason for payment. Depending on your bank, it may take several working days for your payment to reach us. The goods you have ordered will remain reserved for you until we have received your payment (maximum seven days). If you return one or more items, the corresponding value of the goods will be credited back to the bank account from which you transferred.
  3. Payment by PayPal, PayPal Express
    If you pay by PayPal, you will be redirected to the PayPal website for payment during the ordering process. If you are already a PayPal customer, you can log in there with your user data and make the payment. If you are new to PayPal, you can log in as a guest or open a PayPal account and then confirm the payment. If you return one or more items, the corresponding value of goods will be credited back to your PayPal account.
  4. What is the PayPal Express Purchase?
    PayPal Express Purchase is the direct access to your PayPal account from the shopping cart. Clicking on the "Direct to PayPal" button takes you immediately to your PayPal account: Log in, confirm purchase - nothing else! No annoying input of your personal data - all necessary information will be taken over by us directly via PayPal. You will then be taken immediately to our purchase completion page. Then check the details again at your leisure and confirm your order by clicking on the "Buy item" button.
  5. Payment by invoice (Unzer)
    We offer you the purchase on account via the external service provider Unzer (www.payolution.com). The invoice amount can be paid within 14 days of receipt of the goods. Your details will be transmitted to Unzer for the purpose of a credit check. Please note that the purchase on account is unfortunately not possible for a different delivery address and for deliveries outside Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. With our payment partner Unzer, purchase on account is only possible up to an invoice amount of EUR 1000.00 across all online shops.
  6. Payment by credit card Credit cards
    We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. To ensure the protection of your credit card details, your complete data is transmitted encrypted via SSL and is therefore safe from access by third parties.

    After selecting this payment method, please have your credit card ready. You will be asked to enter your credit card number, expiry date and card verification number. The card verification number is the last three digits on the signature field on the back of your card.

    Your credit card details will be forwarded in encrypted form to TeleCash (leading provider of card-based payment transactions) for authorisation, and the invoice amount will be reserved on your credit card. However, your credit card will not be charged until the day of dispatch. If you return one or more items, the corresponding value of the goods will be credited back to the credit card originally charged.

  7. Additional security when paying by credit card
    Verified by VISA and MasterCard Secure Code enable the particularly secure processing of credit card transactions on the Internet via special encryption procedures.

    You do not need any software on your computer. Both customers who are already registered and those who are not yet registered will be automatically redirected to the page of your bank via the payment processing. To complete the order successfully, please follow the steps indicated there. Please note: We have no influence on the information requested on this page..

From an order value of 49,- EURO we deliver free of charge within Germany as well as Austria. For orders under 49,- EURO we charge a flat rate of 5,- EURO for shipping and handling. The shipping costs for delivery to other countries can be found here.

You have the option to select DHL Express as the shipping service provider when completing the order. 

What happens if I am not at home when the delivery is made? 

Our shipping partner DHL delivers within Germany between Monday and Saturday.

If your shipment cannot be handed over to you directly at the specified delivery address, you will find a collection slip with which you can collect your parcel from the post office or Packstation indicated on it within 7 days (in Germany). If the recipient has not concluded a separate or deviating storage agreement with DHL, delivery to a neighbour or another person authorised to receive the parcel is also possible. 

How long do I have to wait for my order? 

Shortly after we receive your order, we will send you an e-mail confirming that we have received your order. For items marked "available immediately", delivery is usually within the next one to two working days by postal parcel for shipments within Germany. For items marked "available at short notice", we will inform you of the delivery date immediately by e-mail or telephone. For items marked with "Pre-order now!", the delivery period depends on availability at the manufacturer. 

What is the status of my order? 

Are you waiting for your order and can't wait to take your new shoes out? Of course we understand that and are happy about it! You will immediately receive shipping information from us by e-mail when your order is dispatched. As a rule, your order will be with you within two to three working days. If this is not the case, your order is often still at the Deutsche Post or has been delivered to a neighbour. If these possibilities fail, please contact us immediately and we will immediately make a follow-up request. 

Can I cancel or change an order? 

Please send us an email to bestellung@schuhe-lueke.de promptly - as it is our aim to deliver to you as our customer as quickly as possible. There is a possibility that the package is already on its way and we can no longer change anything. You then have the option of refusing to accept the package upon receipt.

Otherwise you have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without giving any reason.

You can find full details of the cancellation and return provisions in our cancellation policy in our GTCs

How does a return/exchange work? 

If you are not completely satisfied with an item, please return it to us within 30 days. Please use the return label enclosed with your order or request it from us if necessary. Please have the post office acknowledge the delivery. Please note that free returns are only possible for shipments within Germany.

Shipping costs and return costs for deliveries abroad shall be borne by the buyer. After receipt of the goods, you will immediately receive a credit note/transfer in the amount of the purchase price. The type of credit depends on the selected payment method and is either credited to the current account, the credit card account or the PayPal account.

Please note that the delivered goods may only be used for the purpose of testing - comparable to trying them on in a shop. In the event of further use, we reserve the right to demand appropriate compensation for the value. The aforementioned restrictions, which result from the listed return modalities, only apply in any case after the expiry of the statutory revocation period. You can, of course, make full use of your statutory right of withdrawal in the event of a return.

The fastest way to make an exchange is to place another order in our online shop. Of course, our money-back guarantee applies to your return.

If you choose payment in advance or cash on delivery, we recommend that you indicate your wish to exchange the item on the return form; the item will then be automatically invoiced with the new exchange delivery. 


How do you deal with the issue of data protection? 

We know that careful handling of your personal data and information is important to you. Therefore, we appreciate your trust that Schuhe Lüke GmbH will handle your personal data with care. In doing so, we strictly adhere to the regulations of data protection.

The information about our customers is important for the smooth processing of orders and is used exclusively for this purpose. It is not part of our business practice to sell or pass on this customer information to third parties. To ensure that no one can read or change your data during transmission to us, it is encrypted. We use the best technical standard currently available for this: the 256-bit encryption process SSL (Secure Socket Layer). 

What data is stored? 

We only save data that is necessary for your order. These are for example: 
The personal data of you (e.g. the address) 2. the order number, the order total, the order date and your payment details. Only when you place an order do we store your data and only with your consent. 

What about security/encryption? 

To prevent your personal data from being transmitted unencrypted ("tappable") over the Internet, we encrypt your order using SSL (Secure Socket Layer). We use 256-bit encryption, which is currently the best security standard and is also used, for example, for online banking. The 256-bit SSL encryption is supported by almost all modern browsers. You can find more details on the website of your browser provider.
