Many of us shop online with the express expectation that the items we purchase will be easily returned if we’re not satisfied with them… But how many of us have considered what happens to those products after we ship them back to the retailer?

Brandon Dupsky is the co-founder and CEO of Back-Track, a company dedicated to helping online retailers recover the profits lost to surplus inventory and customer returns. He joins us today to talk about what he likes to call his “billion dollar mission to save e-commerce” and how the company is working toward achieving that goal.
