eCommerce merchants know the value of a great returns policy, particularly in Singapore. Especially when it comes to products that need to be tried on, such as fashion, returns are key. Many shoppers hate not getting the right fit and buy multiple sizes to try on before returning the ones that are not their size.

Fortunately for merchants based in Singapore, Janio has rolled out our returns programme for domestic returns in the country. For Janio shippers, you are now able to offer three types of return shipments for your online shoppers:

  • Return Pickups
  • Return Drop-offs
  • Letting Your Customers Choose from the Above Two

 

What is the Return Customer Experience Like?

Stage 1: Creating the Return Order

When your customer requests a return shipment, you’ll be able to create the return shipment order straight in Janio’s merchant portal. You’ll be able to choose whether the return is done via pick up or drop off, schedule the pick up date (if needed) and key in your desired return address.

Pick up

If you’re using the pick up option, you’ll be able to schedule the return date with us during the order creation. Please note that if you don’t provide a date, the default proposed pick up date will be 2 days after the date you created the return order, or the next earliest available date.

Drop-off

If you’re using the drop-off option, you won’t need to key in a date.

After the return order has been created, our team will send both an email and sms notification to your customer.
