How does VAT (sales tax) affect prices on WatchGecko website?
No additional tax will be added or subtracted at the checkout for any purchases.
All buyers will pay the same price regardless of their location.
For buyers in the UK and European Union the VAT (sales tax) element of the order is paid by WatchGecko.
Orders that are sent outside of the UK and the European Union do not have this tax paid and so these customers may be liable for additional import taxes and customs duties.
The main benefit for customers is that we can offer the same low prices for all buyers regardless of their location.
How does the exchange rate effect the price?
Our products are priced in British pounds (GBP), but you can pay in you local currency using the exchange rate set by either PayPal or your bank card provider.
We offer an exchange rate selector and this will give you a very close figure of the cost of your order in either Euros or US Dollars.
When ordering by card I get CVV payment error?
This is because the three digit CVV number you have entered has not been able to match it to the details held at you bank.
The three digit security code is known as the CVV (Card Verification Value) or CVN (Card Verification Number). It is a number that is printed, not imprinted, on your Visa, Mastercard or Bankcard.
Visa, Mastercard, and Bankcard card members can find their CVV/CVN number in the signature area of your card. Your card number should be printed here along with a three-digit number at the end. This is your CVV/CVN number.
If you have seen this error the transaction will have been voided by the payment system, but you may still see them on your bank account. Occasionally the bank you have used to make the payment do not act on the void notification straight away. But you can be assured that the funds haven’t been taken out of your account, but will be on hold until your bank has acted on the void request. If you call up your bank they should be able to see the void request and remove the fund holding.

When ordering by card I get AVS Payment Error?
For security protection the payment system needs to validate the billing address you have entered with the address of the bank card.
If you believe you have entered the correct address it appears it has not been successful, we would recommend to contact you bank who would be able to assist you further.
The other option is to use the Paypal option, please not you do not need a Paypal account and you can use your bank card as your would normally.
Metal Curved End Pieces
Our generic curved metal end pieces we sell have not designed to fit a particular watch.
Because the watch case sizes and spring bar hole positions vary on different watches (even with the same lug width), it is difficult to design curved ends that will fit all watches, so there may be some slight adjustment required to get the strap to fit nicely.
Your local jeweller maybe able to help with fitting.
