Walmart Free Shipping:
Retailers who bring items faster to their customers than the others before this Christmas Eve will be one of the best retailers of the year. There are the number of customers who are unhappy and unsatisfied with the goods and items they purchased online from the website and wish to return it back. Around $90 billion worth of items were returned to the company last festive season.
This happens every year and is the only reason why Walmart has started offering free two-day shipping and returning policy for the online customers. According to Walmart, this scheme will add 75 million items back to the website.
Walmart also confirmed all the new steps the website is taking to return the products of third-party sellers on the website. Customers can get the online receipt of the returned items directly from the website. While they can give back the unwanted items to the sellers directly.
Scott Hilton, Walmart’s chief revenue officer of e-commerce division said, “Proposing the scheme to return the unwanted products is one of the major contributors to overall customer satisfaction and repeat purchases.” On the contrary, Amazon offer’s two-day free shipping for the customers who have a prime member of the website.
Rod Slides, head of Deloitte’s retail practice says that “Retailers comprehend they are fighting for convenience.” “After the day ends, they have to bring everything to you”, he further added.
