How to expand your Ecommerce business in Europe with Allegro

How to expand your Ecommerce business in Europe with Allegro

Sell on Allegro

When expanding your business or brand to a new market, there are many uncertainties and costs, especially if your brand is still not well-known in the new market. That is where this app and Allegro can help. First and foremost, Allegro is the largest marketplace of European origin. In fact, it has been on the Polish market for over 21 years and is therefore very well established, not to mention that with the acquisition of the Mall Group in 2022, there is the potential to expand your business in these markets as well in the foreseeable future.

One thing to consider is that in 2021 German exports to Poland amounted to approximately 84 billion euros compared to 78 billion euros in 2020, according to the United Nations COMTRADE database on international trade, which shows that there are strong trading ties between the two countries.

To succeed in Poland, it should be taken into account that ecommerce platforms and marketplaces are becoming increasingly popular. That is shown when 75% of Polish consumers buy from domestic online stores compared to 32% from foreign online stores. With that in mind, Allegro is the place to start your sales in Poland. This app is designed to help you grow your ecommerce business in Poland and the CEE region. To be able to do that, the first thing that you would need to do is create a business account on Allegro, which is free of charge. Not only is creating an account free, but the Allegro app for Shopware is also free to download and use. It enables you to list offers, manage sales and orders, and update your stock levels as the key drivers for your cross-border business. A quick, easy and hassle-free entry into selling via Allegro – that was the focus of the app development from the very beginning. For example, you can search for your products by using GTIN (EAN) numbers to post offers. If the products are not listed in the Allegro product database, that’s no problem: you can create a new product and add your own description or upload one from your own source.
