DYG Case Study Mockup-1

Executive Summary

How Darn Good Yarn Saved 40+ Hours a Week
and Delivered a Premium Shopper Experience 


Darn Good Yarn

Darn Good Yarn's Story is a darn good one, about an entrepreneur looking to sell great products, while improving the lives of the artisans who craft them.

Industry: Yarns, Crafts, & Apparel

Platform: ShopifyPlus

Slow and tedious returns and exchange process, lack of visibility and control. 

Fully automated returns and exchanges using ReturnLogic.


Business Problem

Manual, email, and spreadsheet-based processes were costing Darn Good Yarn a full-time employee just to process returns and exchanges in Shopify. It was difficult to impose return policy rules on transactions or get easy visibility into trends. All that was negatively impacting customer satisfaction and driving up costs and return rates.

Manual Returns Process

Slow and tedious returns processes were damaging the shopper experience and causing confusion.

Time Intensive 

Returns and exchanges were costing Darn Good Yarn 40+ hours of operations time and efficiency.

Lack of Control and Automation

Darn Good Yarn could not find software that would accommodate its complex return policy. 

Lack of Visibility 

There was no way way to streamline the returns process and collect data, which made tracking the status of a return nearly impossible.

The productivity impact ReturnLogic has had add on
our small business is incredible. Instead of 40 hours a week, our employee now goes into the super user-friendly software, clicks a couple of buttons and returns & exchanges are complete in under an hour a day. The time savings for us while using ReturnLogic has been very significant for company, to use those resources elsewhere.
