With supply chain shortages and changing consumer behaviour, Black Friday Cyber Monday (BFCM) could be particularly stressful for online shops this year. As an entrepreneur, should you also want to participate in this trend, which has been on the rise in recent years?
Parcels returns: never been easier
Every consumer making a purchase from your eCommerce platform has the right to return this product. Although handling returns is not the most fun part of doing business, it plays a crucial factor. Thinking about returns will likely be a headache, especially with international returns. For instance, returns result in high costs, entail extra work and returned products often cannot be resold. Moreover, the moment you don’t comply with the rules regarding the right of withdrawal, you might even risk receiving a fine. However, when a return is a painless experience, it will encourage consumers to make another purchase from your online shop in the future.
Opportunities for returns
It’s important to communicate a clear return policy on the website. An unclear return policy can result in lower sales, because consumers will drop out. On the other hand, a clear return policy can increase the purchase intention. In addition to free products, including free returns, consumers simply love transparency. A good, simple and transparent return service ensures satisfied customers who are more likely to make a purchase again in the future.
