Online Returns

The "Online Returns in the UK, 2018 - 2023", report forms part of GlobalData's Retail Channels series, and offers a comprehensive insight into the consumer and market dynamics of the online returns channel. The report analyses the channel, the main trends, and consumer attitudes towards online returns.

The value of the online returns channel is forecast to rise 27.3% out to 2023 and although online sales growth will outpace the growth of the returns channel, retailers need to be prepared for this increase to successfully handle higher volumes and retain high customer satisfaction.

The clothing & footwear sector has the highest returns rate and makes up the lion's share of the returns channel, which is unsurprising due to the importance of fit as a driver of returns.
