In 2020, when COVID-19 compelled consumers to buy online, e-commerce sales went up by 11% (according to a study by McKinsey), and without in-store fitting rooms, the inevitable occurred: the growth was directly linked to an increase in returned items.

 

Return rates on physical goods are typically between 8% and 10%, but the overall average return rate for online purchases is 30%, with rates as high as 50% in some apparel industries, according to Shopify’s Fashion Industry Report. 

 

EVEREVE was well aware that current rates are unsustainable, and while many merchants consider high returns as a necessary evil, EVEREVE invested efforts in reimagining returns for the company.

THE CHALLENGE

 

Handling the fashion industry orders and return rate was really challenging and manual, countless hours were spent on following up with the customers about their split shipments and countless returns, the process was extremely manual and they had multiple systems that needed to be updated to process a single return.

 

They did not have any visibility into their returns to see what has been returned and why. This made it hard to address any issues with their return journey.

The lack of visibility throughout the RMA process was resulting in a variety of problems:

 

  • Limitations in data availability limited the businesses’ capacity to identify and address the primary causes of returns.

  • A lag time in returns led the way to significant markdowns for the merchandise being resold.

  • There was a lack of accountability for returns management, as well as no synergy across key teams.

  • Customer service representatives were swamped with support tickets regarding returns. 

 

Goal: The ambition was to lower the friction and turn returns in their favor by providing a self-service, easy return process that ultimately increased sales and customer loyalty.
