SEOshop increases Belgian market share through Belfius partnership

SEOshop, supplier of online store software, aims to rapidly increase its share in the Belgian e-commerce market. This is now within reach, thanks to a strategic collaboration with Belfius, one of Belgium’s largest banks. From now on, Belfius will advise its corporate clients to use SEOshop as their online store platform.

In 2014, Belgians purchased for as much as 5.6 billion Euro online, a 15% increase compared to 2013. However, the downside is that 42% of that amount was spent in foreign online stores. A missed opportunity for enterprises and self-employed traders from Belgian soil.

Belfius is a Belgian bank insurance company with a strong social focus. To facilitate the success of its entrepreneurial customers on the Belgian e-commerce market, Belfius was looking for an online store platform to recommend to them. Ulrike Pommée, spokesperson at Belfius: “SEOshop provides all opportunities to become successful, not only in Belgium, but also in the rest of Europe. This perfectly matches our vision.”

Using SEOshop, online retailers have all the essential tools for Belgium at their disposal, such as an integration with the bpost shipping method and payment through MisterCash, as well as many marketing tools that stimulate sales in Belgium and abroad.

Ruud Stelder, CEO of SEOshop: “It’s a logical step to better assist Belgian entrepreneurs with their online strategy. We are very proud to enter into a strategic collaboration with one of the largest banks in Belgium, hoping to thus enable more Belgian companies to successfully sell in Europe.”
