returns that retain revenue

Shoppers expect a better returns experience

Returns are an inevitable part of the eCommerce journey. But despite retailers spending a lot of time and resources to get it right, most of the time, it leads to losses. With AfterShip Returns, those losses can be turned into new opportunities thanks to flexible exchange and refund options. Furthermore, a self-serve portal, a global carrier network with drop-off options, and pick-up services offer customers complete conveniences with no geographic limitations. Turn customers who make returns into brand advocates and drive retention.

Automated returns tools that retain revenue and customers

  • Recapture returned revenue with exchanges, incentives, and partial refunds.


    revenue retention with exchanges

    Recapture revenue

    Key features

    Exchange for other items

    Transform returns into an all-new shopping experience by offering other items as an exchange. Create a new revenue stream by recommending your best-selling products.

    Incentivized exchanges

    Encourage customers to exchange for other items rather than refund by using bonus incentives. Provide options for discounts, free shipping, or extra store credit on top of the original item value.

    Refund to store credit

    Give customers a reason to come back to your store and continue their relationship with your brand. Offer refunds in the form of store credit instead of cash.

    Partial returns for bundles

    Accept individual item returns from bundle purchases to avoid full-bundle returns. Refund the prorated value of items or the bundle’s average item price.

    In-store returns

    Drive foot traffic to your store by encouraging in-store returns for online purchases. Create new opportunities for in-store revenue while giving your customers the convenience of immediate returns.

  • Reduce costs by centralizing and automating the returns process and gain relevant insights.

    Return eligibility rules

    Avoid return fraud, ineligible item returns, and customer conflict with your support team. Automatically reject items based on rules like return window, product type, discount, and customer email.

    Automated resolutions

    Eliminate manual processing and human error by automating resolutions based on delivery status. Exceed customer expectations on refund or re-order processing to foster loyalty and encourage repurchase.

    Analytics dashboard

    Uncover opportunities to minimize returns by identifying common return reasons and items. Analyze your returns with data on your return rate, refund rate, most frequently returned items, and more.

  • Create a thoughtful return experience to increase brand engagement and drive future repurchases.

    300,000+ drop-off locations

    Provide convenience with physical drop-off locations available in multiple countries. Offer support for box-less and label-less returns.

    Single or multi-package labels

    Reduce friction by offering return labels automatically upon return approval. Allow customers to select number of labels required without contacting customer service for support.

    Green returns

    Shrink your carbon footprint and save on reverse-logistics costs while boosting customer satisfaction. Offer a refund without the need to make a return on low-priced or damaged items.
