Access to millions of buyers
Technology, household appliances, clothing, care products for children and much more: you can't imagine Cdiscount selling it. This international Cdiscount marketplace is less known in the Netherlands, but receives no less than 22 million unique visitors per month!
The French giant was founded in Bordeaux in 1998 and now also operates widely in Germany, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Luxembourg. In addition to these countries, they also ship orders to almost 20 other European countries, including the Netherlands, but also, for example, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Portugal and Hungary.
Selling on Cdiscount gives companies direct access to no fewer than 230 million potential international buyers. So do you have ambitions to grow in France or abroad? Then selling business via the Cdiscount marketplace is probably a good idea. You can read more about this on this page.
Cdiscount: business sales in France
Despite Cdiscount's large international reach, this e-commerce superpower is mainly famous in France. Here it is the number two marketplace with no less than 45 categories. So do you want to start selling via Cdiscount? There is a good chance that your products also fit within the range.
You can therefore describe Cdiscount as the French alternative to Bol.com or Marktplaats. This marketplace therefore offers great opportunities for growth ambitions towards Belgium's southern neighbors. However, there are some conditions attached to this. Think of e-mail that you receive from French-speaking buyers. It is the intention that these e-mails are also answered in French, although outsourcing is of course also an option.
Everything you need to know
Before we discuss the many benefits of selling through Cdiscount, there are a few things you should know: the terms of sale and buyer and seller numbers, for example.
You can expect this
Cdiscount is a gigantic online department store with currently more than 9 million active buyers and over 70 million products. The number of sellers is already quite large. They currently have more than 13,000 sellers from 70 different countries. That is of course a lot, but Cdiscount can easily handle it: they have no less than 500,000 m² of department stores.
You must meet these conditions
Cdiscount only sells authentic products with a valid EAN code. These products must of course fit within the categories. Of course, as written before, you must also be able to accept orders from French-speaking customers.
Benefits of selling products through Cdiscount with ProductFlow
Cdiscount makes business selling a lot more interesting. Offering your stuff for sale through such a large marketplace has several advantages. Here we name a few.
The reach of Cdiscount is simply enormous. And again: especially if you want to sell in France, you are in the right place at this marketplace. Trust us when we say it's a challenge to find a household in France that has never heard of the site.
Some marketplaces mainly operate within a certain niche. That can be incredibly beneficial, but as a result, certain products often fall by the wayside. That will not be a problem with the Cdiscount marketplace. The product range is so large within all different categories; you are certainly not the odd one out.
Do you sell items that are large or weigh more than 30 kg? Cdiscount is certainly not limited to letterbox packages. On the contrary! Apparently it is no problem at all to join Cdiscount with extremely heavy products. There is therefore a greater chance of a flawless delivery. Also with, for example, a large interior piece.
Did you know that pick-up points are especially popular in France? Logical too: it is extremely useful if you can easily pick up a package locally when it suits you. Provided there is a local pick-up point, of course. If you sell via Cdiscount, you are guaranteed. They even have the largest network of pick-up points in all of France.
Cdiscount has a loyalty program: Cdiscount à Volonté (CDAV). This is a membership that allows buyers to get various benefits. So these loyal customers keep coming back to the marketplace. Ideal if they can also find your product there!
It is possible at Cdiscount to outsource the entire fulfillment: including all storage and delivery. Why would you choose this? A 2019 study showed that the purchase volume with products covered by the Cdiscount Fulfillment service increases by no less than 80%.
