Writing for WebRetailer.com, Craig Agutter of World First summarizes the key features of ten different European online marketplaces: Allegro, Bol.com, Cdiscount, DaWanda, Fnac, Fruugo, La Redoute, PriceMinister, Spartoo, and Zalando.
Amazon and eBay are great marketplaces for selling general merchandise in Europe, but they are not without competition. In some countries and product categories, their sales are surpassed by stronger local websites. The market is particularly diverse in France, Germany, Eastern Europe and fashion.
This list would have been helpful awhile back when I was exploring European marketplace opportunities for my company. I knew about Cdiscount, Fnac, La Redoute, and PriceMinister, but the other six are new to me.
