Is it really worth it to offer your customers any type of guarantee? Does the payoff of assuring your customers of a risk-free purchase really outweigh the few who will abuse the policy?

If you are wary of offering a long-term guarantee, consider even a short-term guarantee. Think of the things that put your mind at ease as a customer and do what you can to implement those same practices.
