Preparing for the Returns Period


Christmas shopping is one of the biggest holidays with shoppers spending over £2 billion.²

It is predicted that many people will be spending over £700 on Christmas gifts this year ¹. 30% of adults returned Christmas gifts in 2017, averaging £35.10 each. 51% did so because the item was the wrong size, colour or version ³. With thousands of people set to return gifts again this year, you need to be sure you’re ready for the Christmas returns period.

Returns policies are typically between 14 to 21 days, however many retailers extend this period to allow for the Christmas returns period ³. Here at the Barcode Warehouse, we have just the devices to help you through this busy time of year.
