Customer service is very important to us. We want our customers to be happy so they return to us for future purchases. We allow returns for new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a refund of the purchase price. We also allow exchanges if you have ordered the incorrect item. Items should be returned in their original product packaging. We only pay the return shipping costs if the return/exchange is a result of our error. Please contact us and we will assist you with the returns process and acquiring an RMA number. No return will be accepted without an RMA number. The RMA number is good for 10 days after issue.
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days). We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.
Partial refunds will be issued for most unopened items that are returned more than 30 days after delivery, any item that has obvious signs of use, and/or any item not returned in the condition it was received. Refunds and refund amounts for items returned after 30 days is offered at the sole discretion of our company.
The items being purchased are new and being sold by a professional dealer however even brand new items sometimes have defects. Items found defective are exchanged and processed directly through the manufacturer. The manufacturer, not us, has requested that all customer service concerns should go through them for quality control purposes. Walnut Creek Archery will help coordinate any service requests between the buyer and the manufacturer as needed. All returns to Walnut Creek Archery or the Manufacturer must have an RMA number or they will not be accepted. We are not responsible for returning unauthorized items.
Returned items that claim to be new, unused, and/or unopened that are return to us, but in fact have been opened will be assessed a 50% restocking fee (or more depending on condition) as the item cannot be resold as new. These items are charged this restocking fee because they are required to be resold as a used item at used prices. Clam shell packaging on recoil pads and other items that can be opened and closed without breaking a factory seal or showing signs of entry/use are accepted as new, unopened items. Each item returned is thoroughly inspected for signs that it has been opened or used. If your item is determined to have been used or the factory seals are broken and you decide you want to keep the item, we will not pay to have the item shipped back to you. You, the buyer, will have to pay the additional shipping. Bottom line, BE HONEST and if in doubt about your item, please call us first.
Opened DVDs can only be returned for exchange in cases of defect, damage or if the item was different than described and a replacement will be provided. Please contact us to arrange for the exchange.
Any new bows purchased are not returnable for refund or exchange. Please do your homework before purchasing to make sure the bow is right for you or the person you are purchasing it for.

If purchase locally, the bow can be traded for a different model but it must be inspected by our bow technicians to have a value placed on the trade.
