Returns & Exchanges

Shout! Factory strives for complete customer satisfaction. We accept returns within 30 days of receipt of unopened CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays. Merchandise that is in the original packaging and is unworn and unwashed may also be returned within 30 days of receipt. Please contact customer service prior to returning an item, as a return authorization number will be required. Returns must be sent to the address provided below with a note that includes your full name, address, contact information, return authorization number and any other instructions. Returns cannot be accepted at the Shout! Factory main office. Shout! Factory will refund the full purchase amount (including applicable sales tax, but excluding shipping and handling fees). We regret that we are unable to refund any shipping and handling charges unless the return is a result of our error. The customer is responsible for the shipping charges to return item(s), and it is highly recommended that a service that utilizes delivery confirmation be contracted. Please note that Shout! Factory cannot be held responsible for items lost or damaged while being shipped for return or exchange. For items lost or damaged while being returned, please contact your carrier directly.

Please note that products purchased from a retail store or online retailer are subject to the returns and exchange policy of that location. We do not take returns of products purchased from anywhere except from our Web site.

Our customer service is open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Pacific Time Monday through Friday. You can reach us by email at info@shoutfactory.com.

Gifts may be exchanged for items of equal or lesser value. The customer is responsible for contacting customer service to arrange an exchange and for the shipping costs associated with the return of unopened and undamaged product back to the return center for Shout! Factory. Refunds can only be made in the original form of payment and only to the original purchaser.

Please address all returns to:

SHOUT! Factory c/o DCL Fulfillment
Attn: Returns
7100 Trade Port Drive, Suite 100
Louisville, KY 40258

BE CERTAIN TO INCLUDE ALL OF THE INFORMATION REQUESTED ABOVE AND INCLUDE THE RETURN AUTHORIZATION NUMBER.

Defective Merchandise

We will normally replace defective merchandise. Please contact customer service first before returning defective merchandise, and only return it to us upon request. Occasionally, due to player incompatibility issues, a DVD or Blu-Ray player will not play a DVD or Blu-ray release correctly. This is a rare occurrence, but it does happen. Before contacting us to claim a disc is defective, please try the product in more than one player. If the disc appears defective in more than one player, please contact us, and we will likely mail a replacement disc. If you have purchased a multidisc set and more than one disc appears to be defective, we may require return of the set. If you have purchased a multidisc set from a retail store or online retailer and more than one disc appears to be defective, please return it to that retailer according to their return policy.
