Zalando is also creating additional growth opportunities for existing and new brand partners by expanding its Partner Program to all six recently launched markets. For existing brand partners, this means access to over 17.5 million potential new customers that they can build deep and strong relationships with. Local brands in the new markets can also now apply to join the Zalando Partner Program and sell their products online across Europe via the platform.
