creating a simple return policy and offering more shipping options could improve those numbers even further.
Overall, 63 percent of respondents looked at the return policy before making a purchase online

Another way retailers can stimulate sales is by offering more and quicker shipping options. According to the research, 46 percent of shoppers said that receiving their orders when expected would lead them to recommend a retailer to others.

The sweet spot for shipping on online orders is two to three days, but 30 percent of online shoppers want the option of overnight shipping, according to the research. Nearly half of online shoppers said they would not be willing to wait more than five days to receive their purchases. The majority of shoppers choose the cheapest option for shipping with online purchases, but one-third of shoppers said they would pay extra for faster shipping.
