Shipping, Returns & Refunds


Thank you for choosing Way Back Arcades. If you need to return or exchange your order, we've got you covered. Our "no questions asked" return policy offers you a refund within the return period, which varies depending on your purchase:

  • 60 days for our PowerMini handheld arcade
  • 6 months for our PowerConsole tabletop arcade
  • 60 days for game controllers and other accessories

What that means is as long as you received your order and tried it out we'll give you a refund without questioning your motives or integrity.  We may ask what happened but that's to spot any bad trends and to correct any possible issues.

As long as you can tell us what you didn't like about the product or what was wrong we will provide you a pre-paid return label to send it back unless the product arrive damaged which in that case we'll send a replacement or issue a full refund. However, if you don't return everything that came with your purchase, like chargers, cables and adapters, we will deduct a $50 restocking fee from your refund for the PowerMini, a $150 restocking fee from your refund for the PowerConsole and a $25 restocking fee from your refund for any accessories. If the product is returned damaged, you may only receive a partial refund.

You trusted us as a business, we'll trust you as a customer.

Simple as that.

To complete your return, please reach out to us at and provide us a receipt or proof of purchase.

Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer.

Last thing, all that we ask is you contact us first, be respectful as we'll be incredibly respectful in kind.
