KEY BENEFITS FOR MERCHANTS
Cost controlled returns
Our labels are intelligently produced to help save money on postage but also generate sales, so we can redirect the return to the place where it has the highest propensity to sell, or send back via the most cost effective route.
Returns are fully tracked or part-tracked wherever possible, and the Sky Returns platform will give visibility on what’s coming back and how much it will cost before it has even left the customer.
SkyNet can collect payment upfront from the customer for postage labels if required via our portal. Sky Returns supports Braintree and PayPal technology.
SkyNet order labels include tracking barcodes, retailer order number and a warehouse tracking number, which are all searchable fields within the SkyReturns platform. Labels are branded and fully compliant with carriers and warehouses.
SkyNet can support a ‘warehouse-only’ option with no carriers in certain territo-ries if required, so the portal will still gene-rate the appropriate returns label even if no postage or courier booking
SkyNet can open and inspect goods on arrival. Sky Returns platform supports videos of the retailer’s grading process to ensure consistency across multiple warehouses.
The local SkyNet ‘receiving warehouse’ scans the return on arrival and on the same day the retailer can process the refund, speeding up the process and improving the customer experience.
SkyNet can send a daily stock file so that the retailer can select stock in the SkyNet warehouse and send an order notification to SkyNet to ship the item in plain or branded packaging on the retailer’s behalf. Storage fees may apply.
SkyNet can consolidate returns to send back to the retailer by pallet, at the most cost efficient time or on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
SkyNet/SkyReturns provides management returns data and analysis that retailers are able to access and use to better understand customers’ return habits. Fees my apply.
Recycling and destroying goods
For returned items that are damaged, don’t sell or are of a value that doesn’t justify consolidation, SkyNet can either recycle, donate or destroy in market. Photographic eviden-ce and certifica-tion is available.
Resale via marketplaces
SkyNet can list returned stock on over 25 global marketplaces until sold, on a revenue share basis. Once the item sells, the retailer will be credited for the sale, less a SkyReturns commission and any market-place fees. Contact us for details (minimum requirements may apply).
