Customer returns analysis

When a customer returns a product, they can provide useful information about a product's quality, detail page accuracy, packaging, and shipping experience. Amazon captures feedback in the form of a reason code for each product return, which can be used to learn about customer complaints and make effective improvements.

This analysis initiates an investigation of frequently returned products. Our team will provide recommended improvements which can help the customer experience by fixing issues that may result in a customer return.
