We’ve been piqued to learn that Schuh and New Look are the latest brands to sign up to InPost’s Instant Returns service, following news last month that Missguided was the first UK fashion retailer to do so.
What is InPost and Instant Returns? The service allows shoppers to send back items by using a QR code on their phone, meaning there’s no need to print a label at home, which not only reduces paper and ink, but also makes it accessible for consumers who don’t have a printer.
Out-of-store click and collect options are an ecommerce trend that are set to become much bigger, not least because they are a straightforward way for retailers to expand their accessibility to shoppers, whilst still sticking to COVID-restrictions.
Lockers and other out-of-store click-and-collect points provide a safe and convenient way for shoppers to pick up their purchases from a pre-chosen location – and if the item needs to be returned, they can send parcels back in just a few moments, at any time – night or day.
It’s yet another sign that fashion ecommerce is only going to continue on its rocket ship trajectory. In 2020, UK consumers collectively spent 82 billion hours in mobile shopping apps – 30% up from 2019!
