Help identify bad or suspicious buyers



1. When a new order arrives in Linnworks it should be linked to previous orders from that customer/username. This would allow us to quickly see buyer order history and identify possible problems with past orders.

Examples... buyer reported item not received, product not as described, received empty box, etc.



2. Also add the ability to red flag a customer and have an immediate alert show on open orders when this customer orders again. This would be extremely helpful so we can take extra measures before shipment such as inspecting the item, taking pictures, adding a delivery signature requirement etc…. or simply cancelling the order.



3. Going one step further, Linnworks should provide a central database where merchants can add customers who exhibit suspicious or abusive behavior so all LW clients can share this information. There was a good discussion of this idea with positive comments from LW in the past - see this link… http://www.linnsystems.com/supportforum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2505&p=11251&hilit=blacklist#p11251

I was just about to suggest the exact same thing!

We find that we are having repeat violators abusing Distance Selling Regs etc.

Although this can be countered on eBay with a banned list (as far as the buyer creating a new account), it is not possible to do this for Amazon.

To have a Blacklist of addresses/buyers would be so useful.

This has to be included in a (not so distant) future patch.
Fantastic idea
This is a very must and important feature...On daily basis we handle such type of cases and every one know that the customer is lying about ''item not received'' as they are aware that items less than 6 pounds will not be sent tracked and will start messing around....So refund is issued at the end to avoid negative feedback..

On top of that ebay always take customers side as ''do you have a tracking no for this order'' will be the first answer if you speak to ebay customer service...

we are even asked many many times for a tracking no for an order of 0.99 pence..
T
racking no for 4 of 5 pounds order....

What a joke!!!!!

This could be used as a benefit to buyers as well. We would like to highlight "good" buyers where we might want to add a small gift to their order. Such as a buyer who has been honest when claiming an item hasn't been received :- we replace it and then the first order turns up so the buyer sends first back at their own expense.  Or repeat customers etc



It might not cover all the functionality that people have requested on this thread, but we feel our app might be of interest to some of you!
