As an ecommerce merchant using FedEx and UPS, did you know that if your package is delivered even 60 seconds late, you’re entitled to a full shipping-cost refund? Not many do, and that’s why nearly $2 billion in money-back-guarantee refunds go unclaimed every year!
On average, online store owners are wasting nearly four-to-six percent of their total shipping costs by not seeking out and filing for shipping refunds. In an effort to quantify this, let’s assume for a moment that your e-business spends $50K/year on shipping. Four-to-six percent means you could be saving $2-3K annually if you took the time track, discover and file for every shipping refund your company is entitled to.
Before we move on, let’s get real for a moment. E-store owners have a thousand things to worry about already, and we don’t expect them to spend vast amounts of time clocking every order they ship. Nor do we expect merchants to file refund claim after refund claim, a process that is both extremely tedious and tremendously time-consuming.
Remember that $2-3K we mentioned a few sentences ago? Well, what would you say if we were to tell you that you can get that money, every penny of it, in all but five-minutes of your time? Would that be something you’re interested in learning more about? If so, please read on. If not, go back to the top of this story and kindly try again.
What we’re about to tell you is very important, so perk up and pay attention. If you’re a 3dcart store owner who likes saving time and money, you need to check out the new application from 71lbs!
