As the leading online marketplaces in Switzerland, Digitec Galaxus provides companies with a platform to expose their products to a wide audience, fortifying their presence in digital commerce.

To harness the full potential on Digitec Galaxus, shopvibes, an official partner of Digitec Galaxus, offers a unified solution to manage, optimize, and synchronize all data with Digitec Galaxus in one single solution.

How does Digitec Galaxus work?

At its core, Digitec Galaxus is a confluence of two distinct brands: Digitec, which initially carved a niche in electronics, and Galaxus, known for its diverse product range. Together, they present a vibrant online retailer. There are two ways how you can sell on Digitec Galaxus. The first is the typical B2B business model. Here Digitec Galaxus buys the products from you and subsequently resells them on the shop under their own name and price. The other way is based on a marketplace system which recently was introduced in Germany. This way you directly use their infrastructure to place your products on their shop and sell under your own name.

A major difference is that in this marketplace model, you, as the merchant, determine the price for the end customer.

However, the quality of product data is crucial for Digitec Galaxus. It is essential that retailers provide detailed and accurate product information, including product name, EAN, stock and image links, as well as other relevant product specifications. A complete and well-structured data set can make the difference between a product selling successfully or not. All data must be provided in different Excel files to ensure smooth integration into the Digitec Galaxus system.

Since managing and especially sharing this product data manually is a time-consuming process, we recommend the all-in-one product data management software from shopvibes for this purpose. With shopvibes, you can manage, optimize and share all product data and media in one central place to provide high-quality data in the right format for Digitec Galaxus.

Why should I sell on Digitec Galaxus?

Given Digitec Galaxus's dominant position in the Swiss market and its expanding customer base, the platform represents a great opportunity for your business's growth. With an average of 23 million visits per month and 2.7 million active customers in 2022 they are the most relevant and strongest e-commerce player in Switzerland. In addition, they launched their marketplace in Germany in 2018 and were already able to generate over 2 million visitors per month. With their B2B business they also already expanded to further countries like Italy, France and Austria.

Moreover, Digitec Galaxus handles the complete payment processing, enabling you to focus on your core business operations. With their customer service they are the first port of call for questions for customers and thus relieve you of a lot of work.

For merchants based in the EU, there's an added layer of complexity due to customs regulations. But fear not, for Digitec Galaxus offers the "EU-Hub" solution. This innovative solution is designed to simplify cross-border sales for EU merchants. When an EU-based merchant receives an order, it's first sent to the EU-Hub in Germany. Here, the team manages all customs-related procedures, prepares the necessary documents for a smooth import into Switzerland, and then ensures the product reaches the end customer. This process, streamlined and efficient, takes a maximum of two days. The EU-Hub also comes in handy for returns, ensuring products are sent back to the merchant without any customs hiccups.
