We make returns easy for you and your customers
Processing returns is a hassle for any business. Signing for packages, determining the reason for the return, inspecting the goods - it takes a lot of time. Shipvine makes returns processing simple. Each month we process thousands of returns which arrive by USPS, UPS, DHL and FedEx. Returns can include rejected/refused packages, customer exchanges, and just plain old returns.
When we receive your returns you’re notified right away via email or from logging into our cloud-based Logistics platform.
See detailed information about your returns
We track your returns from being received to being restocked in our warehouse so you know exactly where your inventory is in the process. You'll be able to see:
- When it arrives at our warehouse using the carrier tracking
- When it's accepted by Shipvine
- When it's processed
- When items are returned back to inventory
Typically items are processed within 48-72 hours. Items that require refurbishment or repacking average 7-10 days to be returned to inventory.
We'll use a judgment call based on your business whether a product is defective and can't be returned to inventory. Those items can be destroyed or returned to you.
Any notes/requests your customers add to the return will be noted so you can provide a refund, store credit or place an exchange order.
Increase Customer Satisfaction
Reduce return shipping cost and increase customer satisfaction by using the USPS Merchandise Returns Label. You only pay for postage if the label is used. For lighter items, you’ll see significant savings over UPS or FedEx return shipping. This labels can be included in each order making returns convenient. Plus you'll be able to track the return before it even arrives at our facility.
