We digitalized the customer return experience and managed to optimize the return flow as well!
Reached the point of no return?
We made sure Nelly.com, one of Sweden’s largest fashion and beauty e-commerce companies, implemented a new digitalized return experience. The costs of their return handling were rapidly escalating, so we implemented a new strategy and concept to better meet customer purchasing behavior and digitally managing returns. The result? Improved online services during return registration, leading to less unwanted returns and more conversions of returns into new purchases.
Nelly – fashion and beauty online for women and non-binary people
Nelly.com is one of Sweden’s largest fashion and beauty e-commerce companies, founded in 2003. Today, the shopping site is present in eleven different countries, mainly targeted at women and non-binary people aged 18-35.
Returns are a big challenge for e-commerce
E-commerce is expected to keep on growing and so is the return rate, as online customer purchasing behavior is indirectly connected to returning items, due to customer behaviour. Managing these parts of the e-commerce business in a sustainable way is therefore vital to the success of any company in this field.
We set a strategy for returns
We developed a return strategy with customer journey and efficient returns management in mind. We developed a concept for managing returns digitally and for implementing a POC (proof of concept) to support a smooth customer journey. The aim was to increase the possibilities to control and optimize the return flow, to reduce the number of unwanted returns and also convert the return journey into new purchases.
