nShift: Back to school spending triggers 10% sales spike
Use back to school sales to test systems ahead of Peak '23, nShift advises
LONDON, Aug. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The back-to-school period offers retailers and ecommerce businesses an opportunity to get match fit for the 2023 peak season, according to nShift, the global leader in delivery management software.
In 2022, spending in the run up to the new school year shot up over 10% across multiple categories, including clothing, stationery, and electronics.  A similar pattern is expected this year as families equip their children for a new year of learning.
nShift advises retailers to use the back-to-school period as an opportunity to thoroughly test their systems and processes in readiness for 2023's peak season. In particular, it suggests focusing on:
"A smooth delivery and returns experience is vital for delivering ecommerce success at the start of the new school year. Families will expect real choice over when and how they receive their deliveries. And with the first day of term set in stone, they won't have time to wait. The returns process should be just as easy."
nShift customers see order values increase by 20%, reductions in cost-to-serve of 30%, and improved revenues by diverting almost 30% of returns to exchanges.
