De Bijenkorf launches in Austria
Dutch department store De Bijenkorf is expanding in Europe again. After launching an ecommerce website in France last year, it’s now opening an online store in Austria. This marks the fourth foreign market for the Dutch omnichannel retailer.
B2B sellers shift to online self-service for more customer convenience and higher revenue. Research from Forrester shows how firms should react to this new paradigm. In this webinar, Joe Cicman, Sr. Analyst at Forrester, talks about B2B strategies. Join us on June 24th at 4 p.m.
The launch of De Bijenkorf’s online store in Austria was actually planned for the second half of 2020. In February last year, it announced that it would open online stores in Wallonia, France and Austria in the autumn. The first two stores have already been opened, but the Austrian online shop took a while.
De Bijenkorf, a European ecommerce player
With the launch of deBijenkorf.at, the Dutch omnichannel retailer can be called a true European player. In 2015, it went abroad for the first time with the opening of its online store in Belgium. The German online store followed in 2019 and Wallonia and France were added last year.
Customers receive their order within two days.
Customers in Austria can enjoy fashion, cosmetics, accessories, travel and home goods from more than a thousand brands in the online store. Orders placed before 14:00 will be delivered to their homes within two working days.
100 days to change their mind
For customers with a guest account, shipping is free for orders above 25 euros. Otherwise there will be an additional 3.95 euros for shipping costs. Shipping is free by default however for so-called Privilege Members. In any case, both types of customers have a hundred days to change their mind.
