Seller controllable return rate (SCRR)

Seller controllable returns refer to orders that were returned by the customer or were refunded by Amazon owing to product related issues such as:

  • Customer receiving a defective/damaged product.
  • Customer faced size and fitting issues.
  • Quality of the product is not as per customer’s expectation.
  • Inaccurate and incomplete information is provided on the product detail page.
Note: Product returns due to product delivery handled by Amazon, customer change of mind are not taken into account while calculating Seller Controllable Return Rate (SCRR).

How is SCRR calculated?

SCRR is calculated in percentage, in the manner identified below:

SCRR = Number of Orders Returned (or refunded by Amazon for non-returnable items) owing to product related issues / Total Number of Shipped Orders, irrespective of delivery channel.


Number of Orders returned due to seller controllable reasons 10
Total Numbers of Shipped orders 100
Seller Controllable Return Rate 10%
