PayPal Shipping Information

Please note that SAB Avio bases all orders placed in our system in direct reference to the shipping address the customer has inputted at checkout. Please be aware that we do not utilize the customers noted PayPal address that is noted in PayPal, as our system does not have the ability to transpose PayPal shipping address information when the customer places an order with us.

In the case of a differing PayPal shipping address in reference to the shipping address notated within your order, please be aware that we may only be able to ship your order to the matching noted PayPal address within your account, per PayPal's seller protection standards. This would normally take place when an order is under review by our fraud department, and is subject to our staff's discretion.

Check / Money Order Information

Please note that any check / money order option for payment will require our staff to manually create an order for the customer requesting this payment method. Once the order has been manually created, our staff will provide the necessary information in regards to the reference order number, along with our shipping address, which can be found under the "Contact Us" section of our website.

Please be aware that any order paid via a check / money order method will have the noted order held until funds clear in our checking account. Order will not be released until all payments have cleared.

If using a check / money order payment method, please be sure to ship any such payment to us with valid tracking information, and please also notate the order number of the stated order within the payment details so our staff can properly notate and release the order, once payment has cleared.

Please note that SAB Avio cannot / will not be held liable or responsible for any payment sent to us without tracking information. If the customer cannot prove payment has been received, no credit or order can be issued to the customer based upon the missing payment.

Affirm Information

Affirm is an excellent option to assist customers with larger / higher costs orders via monthly payments that are very affordable. This system is easy to use, incredibly safe, and allows the customer to choose a payment plan that works the very best based upon what is in need.

Regarding any payment or approval questions relating to Affirm, please be aware that SAB Avio can only offer basic information about these issues, as the customers privacy is protected via Affirm. The customer will likely be directed to Affirm for direct support, as our staff at HobbyDirect cannot provide payment support when it comes to Affirm, as this level of support is handled directly via Affirm.

For all Affirm orders, all orders must be placed online via the SAB Avio website. Due to the verification process and privacy / security measures Affirm employs, our staff at HobbyDirect cannot process manual orders using Affirm.

Payment Security

When it comes to shopping with SAB Avio, rest assured that we utilize the latest safety & security technologies available, allowing any order you place to be done so via the ultimate in security and safety.

SAB AVIO USA utilizes the latest SSL secure systems, and our website is monitored, checked and carefully covered via multiple 3rd party security systems to maintain maximum levels of shopping safety.

PayPal Billing Agreement Options

Another way to make shopping simple and quick, SAB AVIO USA offers PayPal Billing Agreement options for customers that use PayPal, thus speeding up the checkout time without the hassle of being directed & redirected via multiple page changes.

If a PayPal Billing Agreement is utilized, this system allows the customer to agree to his / her PayPal account to be accessed by SAB AVIO USA when an order is generated. With this method, the process is much faster, and does not require the hassle of being directed to the PayPal website, logging into PayPal, paying for the order, and then being redirected back to HobbyDirect. 

With the PayPal Billing Agreement system, it's a one click process with no redirects necessary, making any order placed via SAB AVIO USA quick & painless.

As with the saved credit card feature, the customer has the option of updating or canceling this option at anytime by accessing this setting via the "My Account" settings.

Fraud Detection Systems

SAB AVIO USA utilizes multiple fraud detection systems to verify all orders we receive. This system carefully checks multiple parameters of every order generated, and depending upon the situation, can require additional time to properly verify payment details before an order is shipped.

Due to high levels of attempted fraud, please be aware that any order submitted to SAB AVIO may require careful overview. The time required to process an order will vary, and certain orders will require greater amounts of time before we are able to safely release the order.

Nearly all orders processed by SAB AVIO USA do not require fraud overview, but the select few orders that require this overview will be done so as quickly as our staff is able to, making sure that any valid order placed with HobbyDirect is processed and shipped ASAP.

If the customer's order is requiring greater levels of fraud verification, please note that SAB AVIO USA cannot be held liable for any delays, nor can we be held liable for expedited shipping options that have been paid for, as these expedited shipping options will still be utilized upon release of the order. 

If an expedited shipping method was paid for (including a rush fee), these payments are not available for refund or credit based upon delays with an order requiring greater levels of fraud overview. These delays are not common, but are areas outside of our control when it comes to the necessary time for payment verification.

Based upon the systems we have in place, we will do our very best to expedite any order placed with us. However, due to the variables of the fraud protection systems we utilize, please bear in mind that we cannot guarantee shipping times.

If an order is found to be fraudulent (or carriers risks we cannot assume), our team will cancel the order and issue a full refund of the order value.
