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.

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.
