One year has past since Jessica sold her first shirt on Etsy.com

It is now time to purchase a retail location for both "walk-in" sales and inventory storage.

She decides to open up shop at SanTan Village in quaint location near the food court.

Customer Service Policies.
• Processing and shipping times need to be honored.
• Explain your shop policies accurately to avoid customer complaints.

Respond to customer problems and issues in a timely manner.
Legal Responsibilities and Limitations:
This space did not come cheap but will assist jessica in the bold move to expand towards retail customers.
One of the hardest parts of opening a business from the bottom is the building process.
Appearance, competition, supply, and perception are all important factors that have to be addressed.
Jessica's staff are stricken with worry that this business decision was too risky and too expensive.
It's not the best time to buy property in a shopping mall because of the costs to maintain business and the recent downturn of customers.
Despite backlash, Jessica decides to carry on and build a store that competes with to big boys in terms of price, quality, and perception

-Not all customer complaints are legitimate

-Investigations are necessary to determine where the error occurred

-Identified Errors serve as a references for problem solving

-In this instance Jessica needs to work on her freight services

-Civility, humility and transparency must be maintained throughout the process

-It is important to identify solutions that work best for varying pools of clientele

-Providing options is a flexible way of dealing with customer complaints

-Offering compensation/rewards increases the chances of retaining customers

-Ensure a smooth process for returns or refunds

Once Jessica has started selling her custom made t-shirts on Etsy.com, she receives a customer complaint. The customer’s complaint is that she received her t-shirt damaged.

Jessica questions the customer on the amount of damage and where she determined how the t-shirt was damaged. The customer responds, sending her pictures in an email. The t-shirt appears to be bleached.

Jessica does as much background research she can on the buyer, determines, and determines that the customer’s complaint is legitimate. The t-shirt was actually thwarted by leaking bleach products whilst in transit.

Every independent business should maintain a transparent shop where you represent your business and yourself accurately.

Every item in their shop needs to fall under one of the three categories.

Items must be accurately listed with picture so customers or viewers can write reviews and comments.

Prohibited items like alcohol, tobacco, weapons etc cannot be sold.

-Appropriate language should be used in order to show sincerity

-Polite apology
Method of communication

-Jessica should ensure that the customer receives the message

-An appropriate method of communication should be established and the etiquette rules of the method must be observed

-The chosen method should be quick to avoid stretching the customer's patience
