Refund policy

High Plains Prospectors offers an easy 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. Within 30 days of receipt of your order you may return or exchange any detector or accessory for a full refund, as long as all items are new, unused, unassembled, in the original unopened packaging, with the manufacturer’s warranty and instruction manual.  When you are returning products, return shipping, insurance, etc. are your responsibility. If your order was shipped under a free shipping promotion, shipping charges (both shipping to, and return and replacement) may be deducted from your refund, at our discretion.  If payment was made via credit card merchant services/credit card fees may, at our discretion, be deducted from the refund amount as well.

At our discretion, we may accept the return of certain gold prospecting equipment if it is used.  We will accept unused and unopened equipment under the policy above. Call for details or questions.

Alternatively, you can get the refund in the form of store credit if you prefer. At our discretion shipping charges may or may not deducted from the store credit.

If the return is a result of our error or if the item is defective (out of the box), please send it back within 14 days of purchase for an exchange. We will pay the shipping costs.

If you are returning an item that has been opened or used, but not damaged, you will be charged a 15% restocking fee within the 30-day period. We are unable to accept returns after the 30-day period. 

Certain products have stricter return policies.  Please read the full description of the products to see if there is an alternate return policy for the product you are purchasing.  

Any bundled items with a product will have to be returned in new condition with the original product it was bundled with. If you are returning a bundled item that has been opened or used, but not damaged, you will be charged a 15% restocking fee within the 30-day period deducted from the original items price.

When returning items in an order that the customer paid shipping, on which the item(s) are unused, we may, at our discretion either require the customer to pay for return shipping or, in the event we send a return label, deduct the cost of return shipping from the refund amount.
