Delivery options at Cdiscount

You can either handle the shipping and tracking yourself, use Cdiscount’s Octopia fulfillment service or work with a 3rd party fulfillment. This service takes care of storing, wrapping, and shipping your products, as well as managing returns and customer relations. They even have 22,000 pickup points all over France where customers can collect their orders.

Cdiscount Ads

If you want your listings to stand out, you can try using Cdiscount Ads, which help increase traffic to your products and boost customer loyalty. They also offer premium subscriptions that provide additional benefits like more data, logistics discounts, and even an account manager to help you grow your business.

Why France?

If you’re considering selling in France, Cdiscount is definitely worth considering. It’s a highly popular website with a dedicated customer base and strong brand recognition. Plus, there are very few international sellers on Cdiscount, so you have a chance to outshine your competition. The entry requirements are not strict, and the costs are reasonable. Just keep in mind that you’ll need someone on your team who can handle French listings and customer service, but that shouldn’t be a big problem to overcome as you can work with us as well.

So, why not give Cdiscount a shot? It could be a fantastic opportunity for your online business!
