Return Options - 87% of online shoppers say having multiple return options makes them more likely to purchase a product online. Having a synchronized omnichannel platform that allows shoppers to return products in-store or ship them back with ease is a necessity rather than an attractive bonus offering.
Loyalty Perks – 93% of shoppers who sign up for a loyalty program say special promotions are an influential factor in their decision to sign up. Access to these special promotions is the main motivator for joining loyalty programs.
Seamless Security – 27% of shoppers affected by an incorrectly identified fraudulent charge say that they will no longer shop with that retailer. Another 40% indicate that they will be hesitant to order from that retailer again. This clear negative impact makes effective fraud management a critical capability for retailers.
Holiday peak season is a challenging time for contact center personnel. The dramatic surge in ever- demanding customers can be chaotic and disruptive. However, by making returns easy, offering exclusive specials through the loyalty program, and ensuring a secure but smooth transaction process, contact centers can play a critical role in boosting shopper satisfaction and retaining customers.
