1. Christmas: time of the year where everyone gets to unite and feel like family.

Christmas is that time of the year when everyone has the right to be free of their daily life duties and enjoy the holiday spirit. No matter if anyone is on duty that day in that season, it always feels like home even with coworkers.

Come to think of it, Christmas connects everyone in such a unique and warm way that no matter how strange two people may be at that time of the year, they still manage to get connected and form a certain bond, which they could relish and remember for ages to come. Christmas season is truly a season of miracles, love, compassion, and most importantly, a time to be happy and zealous of one’s happiness and also towards others.

2. What is the best way to ensure that everything is delivered on time?

To make sure everything is delivered on time, you have to, first of all, verify that everything that is likely to be in demand must be there at all costs. You should never allow yourself to be deprived of anything, and, therefore, it is important, that you must have all the gifts, items necessary for the holiday season should be there in abundance. The next thing on the agenda should be to set attractive prices: you have to make sure that all your stock is sold as much as possible within the end of the season. For that, you have to market your products and make sure that everything is included so that not a thing is left behind.

Now that everything is there, the only thing that now needs to be seen is the delivery. You have to, in a parallel position, also allow the customer to know that they have to be quick about their orders. Whatever it is that they order, it should be done at least 2-3 weeks before the holidays take place. Once the businesses are able to get the word out, they will easily inspire a lot of customers to take interest in their offers, and, therefore, place their orders as quickly as possible, so that they are delivered just in time before the holiday season takes place.

3. What if the customer wants a refund?

You won’t believe it but it is natural and very ordinary that some customers are just not satisfied with what they are given. Because it is holiday shipping season, the first thing you need to tell the customer, prior to, placing the order is that the sold items will only be refunded after 7 days of its purchase. After that, no refund requests will be entertained. If anything does find its way into a refund, you can either add the funds they gave as credit for future references, or you can send them another item. The whole point is to ensure that no loss is going to be acceptable. If there was a defect in the sold item, it can be interchanged for another one, or it can be added as credit, and that is about it.

4. How do you deliver orders that were placed just a week before Christmas?

You have to deliver them at all possible costs. There are no ifs, buts, or any excuses, in times like these. You have to deliver them as soon as possible. You should be able to deliver everything before Christmas Eve, and if there are orders placed a day or two before Christmas Eve, they must be delivered on an urgent basis, preferably on the same day.
