“Labels to Go” Launches in UK
When they process the return of an item on the Royal Mail returns portal, or on the website of the retailer they bought it from, the shopper will receive a confirmation email with a unique QR code.
They can then have the code scanned from their phone at any Post Office branch or Royal Mail Customer Service Point near them, and then a label shall be printed then and there for them.
“Labels to Go” not only saves online shoppers time and money but also makes home printers unnecessary.
What’s more, it comes with a useful feature called Royal Mail Tracked Returns that enables shoppers to know exactly when they’ll be receiving a refund or replacement.
“A clear, easy-to-use returns option should be part of a retailer’s range of delivery options. It helps build customer confidence, relationships and sales. Royal Mail’s Delivery Matters 2018 research revealed Royal Mail is the number one preferred and trusted returns provider for online shoppers and we are increasingly trying to offer the most convenient service to our customers.” – Royal Mail Spokesperson
