Selling shoes online is one of the hardest things to do. It is not because there is no demand or because the quality of shoe suppliers is not great, but because many people the wrong sizes. Some customers bought a pair of shoes, thinking that the size is correct, but realized it is not a good fit.
Today, I will show you the proper conversion for shoe sizes for China, the USA, and the UK. This will help you improve your sales because if a potential customer sees this information, they are more likely to buy from you, knowing that they have a guide on how to choose the right shoe size.
Why is having the right shoe size important?
Before we talk about the table of shoe size conversion for women’s shoes, we need to know why this is important.
The end goal of doing this is customer satisfaction. Typically, people buy shoes in person. They go to shoe stores, and then they ask a sales personnel to give them different sizes. From there, they will pick the best fit. In this scenario, it does not matter if the shoe size is China, the US, or the UK because the sales personnel can get a new size anyway if the first one is a bad fit.
But online, this cannot happen. A buyer will pick only one size, and then you as the dropshipper or online entrepreneur will ship the item. If the customer picked a size 7, and even if you sent size 7, it may not be a good fit.
This is where your problems will begin. For one, the customer may accuse you of sending the wrong size. On another hand, the customer may not want to go through the hassle of sending the item back for a replacement or a refund.
For as long as the size is wrong, you can expect the customer to give you negative feedback. The problem with this is that your ratings will be negatively hit. As more and more customers order the wrong size, you will get more negative hits.
If the customer did not leave a rating, it is likely that the customer will send the item back to you and ask you for a replacement. Some customers will not want to pay for the shipping of the shoes back to you, and they do not want to spend on the shipping fee for the new pair. In this case, you will have a hard time explaining to the customer that you are not at fault.
The right shoe sizes for women’s shoes
Below is a table that will show you the shoe size conversion for China, USA, UK, and international shoe sizes.
The way to use this table is simple. Let us say that you are from the US and your shoe size is 5. However, the product you are buying is from the UK, which means that that shoe sizes rare expressed in different numbers.
In this case, the next number to 5 under the US is 2.5, which is under the column of the UK. What this means is that if you are ordering a pair of UK shoes, the size you will get is 2.5.
To improve your sales and reduce your negative feedback or returns, you have to include this table in your product description. If you do not want to do this, you can create a separate page and then tell the customer on the product page to go to that women’s shoe size conversion table.
