Every marketplace owner wishes for a seamless and user-friendly return process for its visitors. One important element of this is time. The less time a customer needs to spend to return an item the sooner and more eager they will be to come back and place orders in the future.
Vendo has a dedicated integration with AfterShip Returns Center and recommends setting up routing rules to allow marketplace customers to ship the items back with a label that they can download from an email once a return is approved by a seller.
This article details how to configure routing rules in the Returns Center to enable it:
Go to Returns Center settings
Navigate to Return routing rules
Show Detailsin Default return zone

Set up a routing rule for each seller according to the steps in the checklist below.
Please note! Remember to click the
