Initiating a Return Request (If you are the purchaser)
We ask that you do this so that we can properly track all of your requests along with other customers. It is likely that we will want to speak to you because we believe customers ultimately like to speak to a human, not to a website.
- Log into your account at http://www.wvshop.com/myaccount.asp
- Find your order under the "Track your recent orders" section and click "View Details" next to the order.
- When viewing the order, click the "Add RMA" button to start the Return Materials Authorization request and follow the instructions.
If needed, we will contact you via email or phone and assist you with the return.
Often times if you are returning an item that does not fit or you simply are not happy, we can be your personal shopper by recommending other items that are similar in quality or perhaps match up to what you are searching for. We may even discount something to give you an even exchange on the item if we can. We want you to be happy with your purchase and experience with WVShop.com. However, all returns are expedited fasted if they begin by opening a ticket under your account or by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org first.

Tips for Shipping Items
Most items can be shipped inexpensively through the US Postal Service using Priority Mail Flat Rate envelopes or Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes. Larger apparel items such as hoodies will usually fit in a Priority Mail Tyvek envelope and can be shipped for about $6-8. We recommend that you ship items via Priority Mail or UPS so that you have a tracking number and to expedite the process. From most areas, Priority Mail shipments reach our warehouse in 1-3 days. Please allow 24-48 hours after we receive your item to process your return and if required, ship the new item. If an item is being exchanged, we will do our best to ship the item with 24 hours. We also have the luxury of being located near the main UPS hub in Louisville, Kentucky, so UPS shipments also tend to reach us quickly. Be sure to put apparel in the plastic bag it came in or another plastic bag to prevent dirt or water damage. Items that are returned with dirt, water or other damage due to improper packing will not be accepted. If you are unsure of the packing method, please have someone at the Post Office or UPS counter/store to assist you. Often times these items fit in envelopes better of you are able to flatten them and squeeze all air out of the item.
SCAMMERS READ THIS
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES will we honor claims of "empty" packages arriving as a result of someone attempting to gain items for free. We invested a lot of time into making sure our internal procedures are thorough and complete, leaving no loopholes for mistakes. Our shipments are handled by two people to ensure the accuracy of orders. Packaging such as postal service packaging (flat rate packaging, Tyvek envelopes, poly envelopes) as well as FedEx packaging is practically impossible to open without destroying it. The same two people are the owners of this site and while it's possible for us to make a mistake and ship the wrong size or color item or something of that nature (although that has never happened yet), we DO NOT SHIP EMPTY PACKAGES. If you receive a package that has been opened, you should not accept it or you should report it to the carrier (Post Office, UPS, etc) immediately.
Before shipping something back to us, please follow the guidelines above to contact us first so we know why something is being returned and to prevent delaying your request.
