“The Czech Republic is a very promising market not only for us as a marketplace, but also for our partners. This is an opportunity for them to reach a new group of buyers and develop their business on a completely new scale. I am proud that, as Allegro, we provide entrepreneurs with solutions that enable them to go abroad with their offer. And that, as the numbers show today, we do it effectively: on the first day of the platform’s operation in the Czech Republic, we have about 100 million offers active there. This confirms not only the great interest in exports from Allegro, but also the attractiveness of the international sales tools we offer,” said Alvise Favara, chief commercial officer at Allegro, quoted in the release.
The new platform works on the principle of “list once, sell everywhere”. This means that the seller registered on Allegro.pl does not have to register in the new domain – he will do everything from the well-known sales management panel, it was explained.

Allegro has also introduced the Allegro Smart! for deliveries from Poland to the Czech Republic and international returns.
“After the acquisition of the MALL Group and WE|DO, the launch of Allegro in the Czech Republic is another step in the company’s international expansion and Allegro’s ambitions to become the leading e-commerce platform in Central and Eastern Europe. According to the estimates of the company’s experts, the local customer base of the company’s companies in this part of Europe gives Allegro and its partners an advantage of up to several years in building a position on the new market.
