The marketplace of bol.com opens up a way for sellers to reach 6 million consumers in one go! With EffectConnect you can quickly get selling, and offering your products via bol.com will take up little of your time.

 

How does it work?

The seller offers the products on bol.com, which is possible via EffectConnect. When the articles are placed online, they can be bought by consumers. The consumer pays bol.com, who in turn (after the period in which goods can be returned has elapsed) pays the seller. You only pay bol.com when you receive an order. This is based on a variable commission fee (view percentages here) and a fixed rate.

Unique for bol.com: content mapping tool

EffectConnect offers a unique mapping tool, which, based on the bol.com data model, is a simple way to influence your product content in the right way and generate content at bol.com.

  • Link own attributes to bol.com attributes
  • Check permitted values at attributes
  • Influence titles

Important factors

If you sell on bol.com, you will be faced by competitors. Other sellers frequently offer the same articles that you are selling. The buyer chooses from all the sellers, and takes pricing, delivery time and ratings and reviews into consideration.

  • Make sure you have a competitive delivery time
  • Keep your promises - this has a positive effect on the ratings and reviews
  • Make sure you have a competitive price (our repricer does this automatically)

 

Sell using your own name

If you sell articles via bol.com plaza, you sell under your own name and reputation. When a consumer is about to make a purchase, he or she will see that the article is being offered by an extremal seller. They can also read what other buyers say about that particular seller. It is therefore vital to ensure you keep your delivery time promise to bol.com customers. Failure to do so will not only damage your reputation on bol.com, but also your reputation elsewhere!

 

Outsource logistics to bol.com

It may be interesting to outsource your logistics to bol.com. You still sell your articles under your own name on bol.com, but you have the benefit of certain other advantages.
