Everyone knows that finding the right size can be a bit of a pain. Buying online can be especially difficult as you don’t have the option to try something on. Well here at inlineskates.com we are eliminating some of the hassle with our Guaranteed Fit Buying Program. The purpose of this program is to ensure you get the proper skate in the size and fit you find to be most comfortable and accurate. This program works in Four easy steps:
Step 1: Simply select the first skate in the size you are interested in and add it to the cart. Once in the shopping cart you will see an option for GFP (Guaranteed Fit Program). You will see two choices, the first is Buy 3 Return 2 or the second which is Buy 2 and Return 1. Simply select one of those two choices. After selecting one of those options return to shopping and select either one or two more pairs of skates and add to the shopping cart. Upon completion of that simply go through the process of checking out.
Step 2: Once you receive your skates, try them on. You can’t wear them outside, but you can put them on inside on the carpet and move around a bit to see if they fit. Follow our handy skate buying blog and specifically read the Test the Skates out on Carpet section. In that section you will find the proper steps to picking the skate that best fits you and how to go about getting that done.
Step 3: Once you have made a selection please give our Customer Service department a call at 888-271-7500 and give them your order number. They will give you a pre-paid return label for the skates you wish to return.
Step 4: Ship the skates you do not wish to keep back to us in the same packaging and condition that you received them in. We will refund your credit card within one to business days upon receiving the skates back.
Some special notes on this program are you must purchase the GFP with your original order. You cannot order three pairs of skates and then order the GFP. This program is only available for items that can be delivered to and returned from the 48 contiguous United States. The inline skates you are returning must be returned within 2 weeks of arrival. Any skates returned after the 2 week period will be subject to a 15% restocking fee. Special Order items are not eligible for the GFP and skates can ONLY be tried on and may NOT be skated on indoors. This will cause wear on the wheels.
As previously stated buying items online can be tricky, especially inline skates. We here at inlineskates.com created the Guaranteed Fit Program to alleviate some of your fears about buying online, more specifically buying the proper sized inline skates. We here hope this guide better explains the program and alleviates any of your concerns with buying inline skates online.
