That’s according to a survey commissioned by CBRE. The numbers are not high. But the volume of returns can be expected to rise in line with the growth of e-commerce, CBRE commented.
The top-cited reasons for returning products bought online were “product does not live up to expectations” (39%), “faulty product” (38%) and “product is not as ordered” (37%).
