A splash of lime for your returns management

Cross-order e-commerce continues to boom and is no longer on the margins. Due to Corona Pandemic the quantity of parcels is going through the roof and so is the return rate. Too small, too big, too thick, too scratchy – what doesn’t fit gets sent back!

But watch out: At this point of the customer journey it is also worthwhile to respond to customer wishes and expectations! How important is the handling of the return, even internationally, so that customer will come back? What should online retailers pay particular attention to? How important are mobile self-services already for returns management and how should they be integrated?

We discussed these and many other questions together with the returns management experts Ruben Meulenhoff (Seven Senders) and Alien Mulyk (bevh) in our webtalk “retail salsa – Spice up your community” on 2021/01/27.
