June 20, 2023
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:
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.
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.
If you’re using the drop-off option, you won’t need to key in a date.
Stage 2: Notifying and Authenticating the Customer’s Return Order
After the return order has been created, our team will send both an email and sms notification to your customer.
Email with the order confirmation link that your shoppers will receive
SMS version of the above
Once they’ve clicked on the link, they will be asked to verify the pick up confirmation via a one-time-password (OTP)
Stage 3: Customer Chooses and Confirms Returns Arrangements
Once verification is complete, what the customer will need to confirm the details of their shipment. These include the list items being picked up, choosing between pick ups or drop offs as well as confirming the time or location of the pick up.
Letting your customer choose:
If this option is selected, your customer can choose the most convenient return service for them before going through their selected workflow below.
Your customer will either confirm or reschedule the pick up date with us. Pick ups will take place between 9am and 7pm on the scheduled date, with a phone call to confirm the pick up before the driver arrives.
Your customer first checks the items to be returned before selecting a drop off location.
There are around 87 drop-off locations Singapore-wide as of the time of this writing. You can see our list of active drop-off locations here.
Once your customer has confirmed their returns arrangements, they’ll receive a confirmation notification from us.
Stage 4: Confirmation Email and SMS
The confirmation email they receive will have everything they need to prepare for their delivery. It contains:
The label they need to print on the parcel
Instructions for them to prepare the parcel
