Reducing Returns - Your guide to getting started
Of all the factors behind returns, customer behaviour is at least ten times more significant than any other. Understanding the basic ratio of shoppers who intend to keep, versus those who order intending to return, is essential to understand the profitability potential of your customer base, and whether your return rates are commercially damaging or sustainable. If the balance is tipped too far towards the high returning low profit customer, the gap between growing revenue and falling profits will escalate.
