Avoiding returns in distant selling through differentiating customers and their service delivery
Högskolan i Borås, Institutionen Textilhögskolan.
2009 (engelsk)Konferansepaper, Publicerat paper (Fagfellevurdert)
Abstract [en]

Purpose of this paper This paper discusses possible reasons behind consumer returns in general and possible implications of not differentiating between customers and an organization’s order processing systems support, as well as the possible relations between increased returns and not “understanding” customers demands in a business to consumer (B2C) distance selling context. Design/methodology/approach A single organization case study designed with both quantitative and qualitative methods was used to explore the relatively unobserved area of consumer returns and their possible relations to an organization’s order processing system support. The results have been evaluated and discussed with different managers from the company under study, to substantiate authenticity and trustworthiness. Findings It was revealed that some customers, especially the younger set using the Internet, are truly demanding and at the same time less loyal. This has caused commotion within the organization and with the supply chain network partners, because of the high return rates Research limitations/implications (if applicable) This paper analyzes data from only one Swedish organization, but the empirical data covers more than two and a half million order data sets and close to half a million return data sets. Practical implications (if applicable) N.a. What is original/value of paper Most studies within the field of returns focus on products and the efficient handling of returns. This study focuses on the service delivery aspect and concludes that having only one order processing system methodology will fail to support all customers’ demands.
