Returns management

Returns management

Parcel returns management

Having a suitable returns process can be the difference between a shopper placing their order or abandoning their shopping cart. And when dealing with international shoppers it becomes even more important to have a parcel supplier that understands the local preferences of each market and has effective returns management systems in place.

We have a range of returns solutions, so contact us today.

Mail returns management

Handling returns yourself can be a costly process, and how often do the gone-aways actually get removed from your database? This means you have ineffective data which only causes wastage and harms your sales effort.

Why not let us handle your returns and provide you with an Excel file of gone-aways which you can upload to your database.



Postal Prices

Our postal prices are dependent on quantity, frequency, collection addresses and of course weight, size, and destination/s. So please contact us to discuss your requirements and opening an account.

Mailing fulfilment and print prices

If you wish to take advantage of our end-to-end solution (fulfilment, print and postage) we will need a brief from you so we can produce an Estimate as there are many elements to consider. Please contact us today, you may find this document useful: Mailing brief template and example of a brief

Order fulfilment prices

To provide prices for order fulfilment services (pick and pack) we need to know some details e.g. number of SKUs, expected order volumes, type of products, distribution requirements, etc. You can use this document: Order fulfilment brief questionnaire
