Online returns channel is set to rise by 34.6% to £5,438.1m by 2022. Growing consumer confidence in the returns process and a 35% growth in online spend over the same period will drive this growth.

Retailers must prepare for the rising number of returns by investing into the entire operation. Retailers that are able to provide a returns process which is as seamless as the purchasing journey will benefit from improved customer retention.

Penetration of online shoppers that have returned an item, has risen across all sectors other than in clothing & footwear, although clothing & footwear has by far the highest penetration at 32.7% - compared to the next highest sector food & grocery gifting at 19.7%. With free returns provided by the majority of major retailers within the sector, investment should be directed towards improving the wider process.

For example, providing refunds at the point of return, whether in store or at pick up/drop off point, will appeal to consumers, particularly as spend on discretionary items will be limited over the next two years.

Overall, 37.3% of returns were made via post while 35.1% were brought back to a retailer’s store. However, for five of the nine retail sectors, returns were most commonly completed via returning to store.

The minimal use of channels such as lockers and drop off points like Collect+ and Doddle proves that consumer awareness of these options remains low. Retailers should further highlight the availability of the lesser used options to demonstrate the convenience of their returns proposition whilst alleviating some of the workload and resource involved in the returns process, for stores.
