Hi! I am launching my commerce site very soon. I am offering national shipping and I also am offering free local delivery for local customers.
I'm confused about how to handle potential returns with local customers. Should a customer that isn't local want to make a return, they are responsible for return shipping.
But what do I do if someone I hand delivered their order to wants to then make a return? I do not have a business address (I work out of my home) and do not want customers bringing their returns to my home address. I will be getting a PO box but do I require local customers to ship an item (that I have previously hand delivered) to me? Even if they live in the same town? I'm leaning towards giving local customers a full refund minus a fee for me physically coming to pick up their item. (Similar to a restocking fee, I guess.) That's the only reasonable thing I can come up with? Does that seem reasonable to you? Has anyone else done that or do you have another suggestion? Thanks!
Hope you're having a great day!
