Zalando launches Partner Programme in the UK
Zalando has launched its Partner Programme in the UK, working together with retailers and brands and giving them the possibility to display and sell their products on the Zalando platform. The Partner Programme, which has already had a successful launch in several markets, gives Zalando customers access to an even wider range of goods and improved availability.
Berlin, January 27, 2015 // The Partner Programme is already live in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy, Luxemburg and Austria, with more than 170 brands, and has now been launched in the UK. Partners are chosen in line with Zalando’s high standards of quality and are checked against a set of strict criteria such as product quality and relevance of assortment, ability to match the Zalando customer offer (free delivery and free returns within 100 days) and capacity to match our quality standards in terms of logistics, delivery, product presentation and other relevant aspects.
“The focus is always on the consumer. We aim to increase local relevance by attracting more brands from the UK, whilst at the same time maintaining our high standards to create the best shopping experience for our customers” explains Robert Schütze, Country Manager for the UK at Zalando. “The first partner has just been launched in the UK and we want to continue working with more brands and retailers who fit our portfolio, fulfil our standards and bring something new to the Zalando website”.
For brands and retailer, this represents the opportunity to reach the broad Zalando customer base and to benefit from the recognised e-commerce expertise of Europe’s leading online retailer for shoes and fashion.
Zalando takes care of everything apart from the logistics side of things, i.e. handling the ordering and payment processes, returns and customer care. Partners are responsible for shipping to the customer.
