In this section, we are going to go over some of the main reasons why you should even consider offering free returns to your customers.

The Numbers

Of customers will buy something again if returns are easy


Of Shoppers check the returns page

The biggest reason to offer returns to your customer is to increase your site's conversion rate, Average Order Value and Life Time Value.

Increasing Conversion Rates

One of the biggest benefits of offering free returns is increasing your conversion rate and reducing your abandoned carts by removing risk from the buying journey.

Additionally to removing risk, it also shows that you back up your product's value.

But why does it increase conversion rates? 

This free audit is designed to allow us to cut through all the BS and gives you the opportunity to work with us risk-free, so you can determine for yourself if we can be trusted or not.

Because the unfortunate truth is that the e-commerce landscape is full of self-appointed gurus who might say all the right things but couldn't actually grow a business to save themselves.

We know this because we have worked with many of them, and we are sure you have too.
