What is Relay Cloud and why is it critical to eCommerce?
Relay Cloud is a post-checkout solution that allows merchants to automate shipping and returns processes to empower customer success. 92% of consumers said they would shop again at a store that provided easy returns. We listened to our customers, and we created Relay Cloud to empower customer service with the tools they need to succeed. Relay Cloud connects to email platforms such as Klaviyo to increase opt-ins, improve deliverability, & increase engagement with your customers. Extend customer lifetime value with Relay Cloud!
Before using Relay Cloud, many merchants leaned on customer success & the customers to initiate. Not only were the teams taking 100% of return inquiries, the technology did not speak to one another, creating a huge burden on Customer Service. Utilizing Relay Cloud decreases Customer Service inquiries, connects siloed technology, & saves critical revenue by offering store credit for returns automatically.
The Relay Cloud Difference
Relay Cloud’s feature set maximizes the value of your customers post-checkout, increases efficiency, and productivity. Utilizing their Rules engine, merchants can customize and automate the returns process at the product level. Customize order tracking pages to continue your on-brand narrative, build your email opt-ins, add third-party product upsell recommendations, user-generated content & more! Relay’s ETL, or Extraction Transformation & Load, allows for data mapping to update orders seamlessly.
With month-to-month contracts and a white-glove onboarding process, Relay Cloud always works with the merchant to make sure they are getting the most out of the partnership. Their solution is easy to implement, taking an average of 30 days to do so, and is extremely user friendly. Even the least tech-savvy person on your team can utilize data automation with Relay Cloud.
