VidaXL: Channel info
The seed of vidaXL was planted in 2006, when two Dutch entrepreneurs – Gerjan den Hartog and Wouter Bakker – started selling products on e-Bay.
They made the choice to start developing their own branded products and selling these to consumers over the internet.
The assortment quickly grew from selling in the Netherlands, and they started selling products in several European countries, with the ultimate goal of offering products at much lower prices than their competitors.
What do they offer customers?
VidaXL control the complete chain from production to shipping, meaning they keep the costs for their customers as low as possible.
In that way they influence the design and packaging of products, and with their purchasing power can offer their customers the best possible deal: a good product for a very competitive price. This allowed them to market the concept over the last few years, and expand worldwide.
