How to Embed Your Branded Return Page Into Your Store

Plans: Premium, Enterprise Platforms: Shopify


AfterShip Returns by default structures returns portal in a way that leaves little to no room for much navigation, header, and footer elemental customization. Though you can edit the look and feel of the header and footer to maximize your brand representation, you cannot add additional sections to expand their navigational capabilities.

If you would like your returns portal to deliver the same customer experience as the rest of your online store, you can instead embed your branded returns page. By embedding your returns page into your store’s navigation, you align your returns portal user experience with the rest of the store, giving customers a consistent experience even when submitting returns.
