Diapers.com arrives in Benelux area

Diapers.com arrives in Benelux area

Amazon subsidiary Diapers.com has expanded into several new countries, like the ones in the Benelux. It is now available, only in English, in 67 countries.

Three day delivery

European deliveries will require 3 days and customers will have to pay import costs. Returns are also possible, within 30 days, but customers will also have to pay for the return package.

 

Diapers.com is an online baby product store launched in 2005. It is part of the Quidsi group, which Amazon bought in 2010 for 550 million dollars (410 million euro). Several of its other websites (like Casa.com, YoYo.com and BeautyBar.com) already have an international reach.

 

Competition

"With this launch, we reinforce our dedication to making busy parents’ lives easier via best-in-class product selection for the whole family, fast shipping and 24/7 customer service—not just in the U.S., but now across the globe”, says Robyn Brown, international expansion leader at Quidsi.

 

Diapers.com will have to fight off some stiff competition in the Benelux. Bol.com has also just started selling baby products, while Diapers.com is only available in English and has longer delivery times.
