With Holidays Around Corner, TrueShip Releases White Paper Making Bold Predictions For Black Friday, Cyber Monday

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - September 08, 2015) - TrueShip (http://www.trueship.com) -- the leading provider of automated returns management solutions (ReadyReturns) -- has just released a new guide offering facts, statistics and projections on the forthcoming holiday shopping season, with a specific focus on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Major think tanks are projecting that over $650 billion will be spent by Americans on holiday shopping this year. About half that money will be tendered in online transactions.

If retailers are not prepared to handle the shopping rush, they could find themselves overwhelmed in the aftermath because one in three consumers will make an online return afterwards.

The new guide by TrueShip covers these following elements:

  • Half of holiday shopping will be online.
  • Shoppers will spend more than ever before.
  • Holiday sales will set new record in 2015.
  • Returns will be made by one-third of all shoppers.
  • Online returns have lowest return rate in industry.
  • Shoppers read your online returns policy.
  • Infographic: “Returns Management: Why It Matters.”
  • Offering free returns supercharges sales.
  • Is Black Friday the new Cyber Monday?
  • Infographic “Cyber Monday, Black Friday Facts: 2015”

“It’s shaping up to be yet another record-setting holiday shopping season. If you are not prepared, you could find yourself in an uncomfortable position come the holiday rush,” explained Michael Lazar, Director of Online Marketing at TrueShip.
