How can I order articles online?

There are six steps in the ordering process:

Step 0: Start the online order

The order is started in the Internet screen where the customer selects the desired items by clicking “Add to cart” and then starts the online ordering process by clicking the “Proceed to checkout” button. The customer sees a summary of all the items in the shopping cart and the individual and total prices under “Your order”. The number of items can be changed, they can be deleted from the shopping cart or moved to the wish list. The ordering process is continued by clicking “Proceed to checkout”.

After entering the required data in the registration screen they can then continue with the order. The customer also has the option of ordering items without setting up a personal account. The option is available to the customer by clicking “Purchase as guest”. The customer’s personal data is automatically encrypted using an SSL protocol (Secure Sockets Layer Protocol). SSL is the industry standard for transferring confidential data via the Internet. The customer’s personal data is only collected, processed and used for the purposes of processing the order in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act’s regulations. The customer goes directly to step 3 by clicking this button.

Step 2: Address options

The customer then has to provide the data required for processing (title, first name, surname, street, house number, postal code, city, country, phone number, email address, delivery options and method of payment). As a registered customer there is the option of checking the stored billing address and delivery address and adapting it as required. If the ordered goods are to be shipped to a different delivery address to the billing address, a current address can be edited or a new address can be added. The ordering process is continued by clicking “Next order step”.

Step 3: Shipping options

The customer can choose between standard delivery or express delivery. The ordering process is continued by clicking “Next order step”.

An order summary shows the complete order with all the contract details. The customer has the option of making changes by clicking “Edit” in the individual sections (shipping and billing address, payment method, shipping option, shopping cart) or cancelling the order by closing the browser window. The customer must enter their credit card details in this step. All the compulsory information is marked with a “*” in the input screen. To pay successfully you must enter all the information, i.e. when paying by credit card the credit card number, valid thru date, cardholder name, card verification number or CVC (three or four-digit number on the back of the card). Before clicking “Complete payment” please check if the details are correct or cancel the process by closing the browser window. The security of the payment process is guaranteed by automatic encryption using SSL protocol. The customer can submit their binding order by clicking “Complete payment”.

Payment & security

Is it possible to pay via invoice or debit?

Since our business is international, all customers can pay only via credit card.

How will my personal data be protected?

All data given to the BMW Classic Shop, such as credit card information and Email address, are automatically coded by SSL protocol (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is the industrial standard for online transfer of confidential data.

Why do I have to enter the 'Card Verification Code' and where do I find it?

Payments by credit card card often require the Card Verification Code. In contrast to the credit card number and the expiry date of the card, this code does not appear on the credit card reference. This maximises the security of credit card payments over the internet. You’ll find the Card Verification Code on the back of your Visa and Euro/MasterCard (three figures) and on the front of your American Express card (four figures).
