Analysis of the checkout, shipping, delivery and returns processes of the UK’s top 150 retailers has revealed some shocking insights that brands can learn from:
Free shipping comes with barriers
Just 17% of retailers offer free delivery with no restrictions. A further 62% offer it with a minimum order value but this can be up to £200 for some retailers. When charged, average delivery cost is £3.92.
Customers are left in the dark during delivery
87% of retailers stop communicating with their customers after checkout. This means that the majority of UK consumers are left hoping the carrier will communicate with them about their order. For 17% of the orders this didn’t happen.
Returns options are lacking
43% of the retailers offer 3 or more returns options. Returns flexibility is vital for customer satisfaction: the more offered, the better. One customer’s convenient drop-off will be different to another’s, so we would expect more retailers to offer 3 or more.
