It is almost spring, so prom and wedding season is upon us. Unfortunately that also means the dreaded “habitual wardrober” will be coming out of hibernation as well. These people come and buy the latest and greatest from you, wear it for the big day, and next thing you know, they are back to return it. Typically, the excuse is that they could not live with themselves for spending that kind of money on a one day outfit, or they claim there is a defect in the garment, perhaps causing discomfort when they tried wearing or using it. The best defense against these unscrupulous people is a simple solution: The Shark Tag.
Attach a Shark Tag to the item, in a very visible place. These are small devices that perform a huge task for your business. They enforce your store’s return policy at the store and even from the customer’s home and closet. You can even choose to utilize the super strong pin’s teeth to attach a copy of the store’s return policy to the garments and accessories so there are no questions left unanswered once they leave the store. The tag is placed along the neck line or other very noticeable place on the item in question. With or without the printed policy, it is obviously not a part of the item, and cannot just be tucked in and hidden while wearing it. They also do not prevent the customer from trying on the merchandise at all. They are meant to be removed at home, with a simple pair of household scissors. Once removed, however, the item can no longer be returned.
The brilliance of this is so simple. The customer is made aware they are to leave the Shark Tag on the item until they are absolutely sure they plan to keep it, because it cannot be reattached once the cut is made. If they choose to wear the dress or use the accessory, then they will have to cut it off. This eliminates the option of wearing it and showing it off, only to have buyer’s remorse or worse yet, the pure intention of using the item for the one night, with the sole purpose of returning it for a full or even partial refund.
The even better part of this device is that it works for traditional brick and mortar stores as well as the online retailer. In today’s world, running all over to the different formal wear boutiques in your area is not the only option. With a few clicks, today’s shopper can find that perfect dress, matching shoes, jewelry, and purse for their big event right from their home computer. Shark Tags can be a huge win for the online only retailer, because the fact is, people find it a lot easier to ask for a fraudulent refund from someone they do not have to look in the eye. They can fill in the return authorization paper, put the item in the box, seal it up, ship it back, and just wait on the credit to reappear in their account. Shark Tags are the answer to this modern problem too.
