‘Your localized e-commerce needs continuous adaptation and fine-tuning, as there will always be newly discovered specific circumstances: answers have to be found to reactions of local competitors and there will be various operational issues’ (Rabobank, 2013). Local knowledge is local power (Payvision, 2015).

Growing your cross-border e-commerce in the Netherlands

We offer consultancy and operational support to enable you to grow your online revenues in Holland, stay in control of your cross border operation, improve your performance and be your ‘eyes and ears’ on the Dutch market. Also, we can operate as a link between you and local experts in e-commerce. You can use our services on a one-off or permanent basis, in a standard package or tailor made to your requirements. This gives you permanent representation in the market on a flexible basis, without any investment in local staff. We audit and benchmark your online offer, marketing, service levels and the customer experience, and make recommendations to improve performance. We report on the market, your competitors and relevant legislation, identify opportunities and give hands-on support on all day to day business where required. Depending on your needs, we can define a service package based on the elements mentioned below or other services you wish to include:

  • Figures and trends in the Dutch economy, consumer spend, the retail and e-commerce market.
  • Monitoring and benchmarking competition in Holland.
