We’re not revolutionising returns

We’ve already done that

For the last 8 years, since we introduced our award-winning digital returns solution, we’ve revolutionised returns. What we’re interested in is evolution, adaptation, and innovation.

The ZigZag team has clocked up over a thousand years in the industry. Not only that, we’ve actually worked in retail and logistics, so we truly understand the challenges e-commerce retailers face. We partner with retail brands that want to keep up with the ever-changing landscape and want to deliver a positive outcome for all stakeholders – including the planet.

FAQ's

Is the returns portal retailer branded?

We offer a branded returns portal providing a seamless extension from your website on any device type. Customer facing emails and SMS notifications can also be branded.

Do you offer labelless solutions, like a QR code?

Yes, however it depends on the carrier and the country. We have great paperless coverage across the UK and most of Europe, however in France, for example, we do not have labelless options, but we are working with one of our partners to release a solution in 2022. Around 70% of shoppers using our portal opt for a paperless returns option.

How can you support our CSR and sustainability strategy?

Our platform and service offer a number of sustainability benefits and initiatives. We can set you up with paperless returns, promote certain carrier services over others, consolidate returns in-country, and resale in local marketplaces. We also offer a take-back solution, as well as repair and recycling schemes.
