Many of these sites, if not all of them operates in different languages and there is no languages choice for English.

Can’t see the benefits or why this has been written in english?

Thanks for the comment Adam.

It has been written for online sellers who speak English (our readers are mostly in the USA and the UK) who want to sell to consumers in other countries.

Most countries in the world do not have English as their first language, so there’s extra effort involved for English-speaking sellers to do business there, but it can still be profitable.

Because Allegro is like 80% cheaper than Aliexpress because the zl is so devalued.

We tried Fruugo and CDiscount.

On Fruugo we were treated with suspicion and rudeness. During signup we gave a ballpark figure for the amount of skus we would list, knowing little about the platform. We had no way of knowing that Fruugo regarded this as an ironclad commitment. After this, we were treated like liars.
I didn’t take it personally, but setup was complicated and documentation was nonexistent. There are no metrics to measure traffic nor any way to optimize your listing. It took a long time and a lot of effort and the only sale we made was a trial order by the staff which they forgot to cancel and then asked us to send them postage to send it back to our FC. Waste of time for us.

CDiscount was moderately better, but the setup was as complex as Amazon, for a much smaller market. We made a few small sales, but without an FC in France, fulfillment was too costly. Also, optimizing listings is a whole other thing than Amazon and ebay.

We pulled out of both markets. Lesson learned: don’t go into a market where you don’t have the tools to succeed.

Market place integration and optimization is a tough one. Sometimes it is easier and faster to go on flash sales. In my experience with many market places, it takes time and resources (technical and human) to run your deals.

Most of those marketplaces are located in France, the problem of you not France citizen is that you need to pay for warehouse, fulfillment, restock, cancellation, before tax, VAT( that not pay by all sellers), from our experience if put all extra cost your price is high than local seller, there for your not competitive price will put you with very small sells if any.
