Discover STAND STUDIO
STAND STUDIO, a modern Swedish fashion brand, was founded in 2014. From the outset, they have been crafting clothing items using a blend of leather and faux fur, exuding a feminine, elegant, and effortlessly stylish vibe with a touch of Scandinavian simplicity. As they developed their DTC channels and expanded their international presence, they encountered new hurdles in handling returns efficiently.
Inefficient returns process crippling growth
Previously, STAND STUDIO faced significant hurdles with their international return process, which was entirely manual and reliant on pre-printed return labels and paper forms.
This wasn't the only issue; for non-EU countries, such as the UK, STAND STUDIO needed to ensure that customers wouldn't encounter customs fees when returning items. In these cases, customers had to engage with support, forcing the customer service team to create both return labels and commercial invoices manually. This time-consuming manual approach diverted valuable resources away from more value-added tasks.
Despite adopting Centra as their e-commerce platform, which allowed for international expansion, diverse currency support, and market-specific front-end experiences, return inefficiencies began to hinder their international growth. Customer service found themselves dedicating an excessive amount of time to return-related tasks, resulting in customer dissatisfaction. It was evident that implementing an automated return management solution, including customs invoices, was crucial to moving past these challenges.
