Product Refund Rate is the percentage of total sold products that were refunded during a period of time.
Refund rate is often seen as a quality assurance metric. Possible reasons for an increasing refund rate may include: product does not meet expectations set by marketing, quality of materials is below customer expectations, or substandard manufacturing processes.
Returns may not result in outflows in revenue, but refunds will. Many marketers miss out on these metrics during reporting, leading to inaccurate revenue reports.
