Introduction

What is Seel Return Assurance and how it works.

🦭 What is Return Assurance?

Brands and marketplaces can use Return Assurance (RA) to give shoppers a peace-of-mind return option, at no extra risk or cost to sellers or the business itself. Simply put, Return Assurance lets shoppers return their final sale items to Seel, for a full refund.
Shoppers can opt-in Return Assurance for a small fee when checking out, and have the confidence to place the order with peace of mind. After delivery, shoppers can return unwanted items to Seel for a full refund.
Return Assurance is powered by a proprietary algorithm that predicts the probability of return before an order is placed. By pricing the unique risks of every order, we make return options affordable for shoppers while discouraging fraud and abuse.
​

🤩 How does it work?

The RA widget is embedded in the shopping cart or checkout page for shoppers to opt-in.
