Join the Unboxing Revolution: Embracing the Power of Open Box Programs | EngineDIY
What is the Openbox Program?
This program enables us to offer our customers a way to buy unused customer returned product or product that required reboxing and can no longer be sold as new. These products will be sold at a discount below what our price would be on a brand-new unit.
“An item in perfect working condition. Original protective wrapping may be missing, but the original packaging is intact and in good condition with minor cosmetic damage to the product possible. Instructions are included.”
In order for a product to be included in EngineDIY’s Openbox program it must meet ALL of the following condition criteria:
• Item has not been used. The item must show no signs of use (dirt, rust, assembly damage or wear). A few minor cosmetic scratches are acceptable (caused by materials shifting in transit, not from product use).
• Item is believed to be in perfect working condition. Due to time restraints we can’t assemble and/or test every unit, but we are confident the product is in good mechanical / working condition.
• Original packaging may have minor cosmetic damage, or the product may be reboxed. Box may have some minor damage due to removed labels or previous opening of box.
• Product assembly instructions / user manuals are included.
• All necessary parts must be present.
In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of Open Box Programs and outline compelling reasons why customers should eagerly embrace this exciting initiative.
A Voice that Matters: Open Box Programs grant customers a unique opportunity to become active participants in shaping their own shopping experiences. By sharing unboxing photos or videos, customers become an integral part of the feedback loop, enabling sellers to understand their needs and preferences better. Through their involvement, customers can influence product improvements, packaging enhancements, and even future offerings.
Transparent and Trustworthy: Unboxing videos and photos offer a transparent glimpse into the journey of a product, from its packaging to its actual condition upon arrival. By encouraging customers to document and share their unboxing experiences, Open Box Programs establish trust between sellers and buyers. Customers gain confidence that they will receive products exactly as advertised, while sellers can demonstrate their commitment to quality and authenticity.
Early Issue Resolution: Participating in Open Box Programs empowers customers to identify and report any issues or concerns related to their purchases at the earliest stage. By promptly capturing and sharing photos or videos, customers can highlight product defects, shipping damages, or missing components. This allows sellers to address these concerns swiftly, providing solutions that exceed customer expectations. Early issue resolution translates into a smoother customer journey and ultimately reduces the need for returns or exchanges.
Influence and Collaboration: Engaging in Open Box Programs empowers customers to influence the product landscape and collaborate with sellers. By providing feedback and suggestions, customers have a direct impact on the future development of products and services. Sellers can use this valuable input to tailor their offerings, creating a more personalized and customer-centric shopping experience. Customers become active partners in the evolution of the brand, fostering a sense of belonging and loyalty.
Exclusive Rewards and Benefits: To further motivate customers to participate in Open Box Programs, sellers often offer exclusive rewards and benefits. These may include: a. VIP Discounts: Participants can enjoy special discounts on future purchases as a token of appreciation for their engagement. b. Insider Access: Exclusive access to pre-sales, limited-edition releases, or early product launches, allowing customers to be the first to experience new offerings. c. Reward Points: Accumulate loyalty points for each participation, which can be redeemed for additional discounts, freebies, or upgraded services.
