Sometimes, people in the drop shipping business get so involved in setting up their websites, researching wholesalers, and creating an advertising plan that they forget about the importance of having good customer service policies. However, frequently it is strong customer service policies that will not only attract customers, but keep them coming back as well.

Customer satisfaction is going to be one of your highest priorities. Not only do you want the customers who have purchased items from you to be satisfied, but you also want potential customers to feel less risk when it comes to purchasing items from you in the first place. You can do this by implementing a strong customer service policy that is focused on satisfaction and guarantees.

Since you won't be seeing the products before they are sent to your customers, strong straightforward policies can definitely help put them at ease when it comes to purchasing items from you.

Oftentimes, customers are afraid of not having their expectations met, by being dissatisfied with what they receive, or not getting what they ordered at all. By providing straightforward policies, you can help alleviate these fears. So what sort of policies should you provide?

Customers always want to know what the company's return policies are. They also like to know who will pay the shipping fees if there is a problem with the product.

A guarantee is always a good place to start. Let your customers know that if they are not satisfied with their products that they can return them for a refund. Guarantees can also be in the form of shipping as well. Customers want to know when they should expect their items and this is something that you should be able to guarantee them. This will also mean trusting the wholesale company that you work with.

Communication is essential as well. Your customers basically want to be satisfied and since they won't be able to talk to you in the same manner that they would if you were working in a brick and mortar store, they will expect accessibility from your website. This means providing feedback forms, email communication, and even a toll free number if possible.

You will probably be surprised at how patient and accommodating your customers can be. However, this means that you should also attempt to be as accommodating and understanding as you can be, too. Accepting responsibility is essential because even though it is highly unlikely that a problem will be your fault, it is almost certainly not the fault of your customer, either. Keep in mind that you are their only connection to the shipper.

The most successful businesses are those that are able to generate value for their clientele. Your website exists for your customers needs and you will only be successful if you give customers something that they desire. By making your customers feel secure in their decision to purchase items from you, you will be alleviating any fears that they might already have about making a purchase in the first place.
