How can I pay for one of your bikes?

When buying with Ukbikesdepot you can pay a number of ways, these being:
Securely using a 3D secure gateway powered by Secure Hosting, one of the world's leading payment methods
PayPal or,

But what is 3D secure?
The 3-D Secure™ protocol was developed by Visa to improve the security of Internet payments. The protocol is offered with the service name Verified by Visa. MasterCard has also adapted a similar protocol called MasterCard SecureCode. Both are designed to allow authentication of cardholders by their Issuers at participating merchants. The objective is to benefit all participants by providing Issuers the ability to fully authenticate cardholders through the use of a password during Internet purchases, reducing the likelihood of fraudulent usage of Visa and MasterCard credit cards and improving overall transaction performance.
Using our website to pay via secure hosting means your details are extra safe as staff at Ukbikesdepot CAN NOT ever see your details. We only see the last four digits of your card. The money is sent straight to us meaning we don't ever have to see your card details.

PayPal is a quick and easy way to pay for goods online, it's the same system used with other websites such as eBay.
Another great way to pay meaning nobody can see your banking details.


We have the option to purchase a bike using finance. This means you can afford your dream bike.
We use a company called Klarna to do the deals on our finance. Using this service means you can get almost real-time decisions on finance options. You no longer have to have a face to face meeting with the bank manager!
We try to offer 0% finance on bikes at full retail meaning you get the best bike at the best price with no extra costs!
Unfortunately if the bike is discounted we will have to use a different finance option such as 4.89% finance.
There is a tool on our website next to every product available on finance so have a play around with that and get a deal you are happy with! Just add the bike to your basket to see your options.
