Creating a Frictionless Returns Process

Understanding the Cost of Returns for Digital Retail & eCommerce

A recent ReverseLogix study aggregating hundreds of interviews across 50+ large retail organizations has revealed that, for many online sellers, a Frictionless Returns Process is the clear missing piece in the ecommerce puzzle.

In an increasingly competitive digital marketplace, rising overhead costs and disrupted supply chains are putting pressure on sellers to find margin without raising prices. This new dynamic has given retailers a new perspective on the out of control costs of their current returns process, along with urgency to find better ways to streamline their workflows to improve the customer experience and unlock more value across the entire return lifecycle.
