Can I return a PayPal order in-store?
Unfortunately, PayPal orders cannot be refunded in-store. As PayPal is a heavily encrypted, secure payment method, our store systems are unable to process PayPal refunds.
If your item meets our Returns Policy, you are welcome to return to our online store and we will initiate a refund for your order.
PayPal will be in touch once they have finalised your refund and you can then transfer the funds into your bank account if you wish.
Head to our Returns Portal to start the process!
Please note that we do not offer exchanges for online orders. If you would like to exchange an item, we recommend that you place a new order online and simply return your existing item.READ FULL ARTICLE

Can I return an item if I didn't buy it from a Merrell store?
We want you to be completely satisfied with our products and we're sorry to hear about your experience with our items.
Important to note: If your item was purchased from a stockist and not directly from us (in-store or online), you will need to return to the retailer and have it assessed by them. Unfortunately, our Merrell Experts are unable to facilitate exchanges or refunds from our end for other retailer purchases as we don't have access to the original transaction.
Once the place of purchase has assessed your item(s) they will be able to advise the next steps for you.READ FULL ARTICLE
