Create Product Returns in OpenCart

Product returns are inevitable in the eCommerce field. If you are running an online store to sell physical products, there are chances that the product will be damaged while it is being shipped. Also, as your customer is buying only based on the reviews of other people and product images, there are chances that they won’t like the product they ordered. As a result, they return the product as they didn’t get what they wanted. That is why every eCommerce platform including OpenCart provides an interface to manage product returns.

Even the bigger stores like Amazon faces 5-15% product returns from customers. So, If you are running your eCommerce store in the region where people like to shop for products manually, you might face higher return rates.

But if you are using OpenCart, It is very easy to manage product returns. We can create and manage product returns until the product is back in the inventory or warehouse. In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to create and manage product returns in OpenCart.
