New Returns launches in France
Dutch platform for returned goods New Returns, active in the Netherlands as 2dekansje.com, is expanding internationally for the second time in one year. It is launching in France with a different trade name, 2echoix.fr. The launch follows an earlier German launch with bwareshop.de in March.
Dutch platform New Returns is an online marketplace where online retailers and brands can sell their returned goods and residual stock. Most of the products on the platform were returned because of broken packaging or because of scratches. Yet some of the products were returned simply because it was not what the customer was expecting.
The platform wants to sell products in a more sustainable way. Instead of producing new ones, it sells returned ones. After checking the product, New Returns sells the product via the marketplace. The products are then sold at discounted prices.
The platform was founded in 2018 and has since then already needed to expand into a larger building. In March this year, it also launched its German website under the trade name bwareshop.de. Now, it has also launched a French one, called 2echoix.fr.
‘The popularity of our platform exceeds our expectations.’
“We want to keep expanding our unique concept by continuing the commitment and confidence of the team, various retailers and suppliers to the French market”, said co-founder Enri Meijers. “The demand for returned goods has increased sharply. The popularity of our platform exceeds expectations.”
