At your door in a flash ⚡️

You know the top online shops in your home country — but what about the best online stores in the Netherlands?

All-rounder online stores in the Netherlands

Are you a person of convenience? So are we. Lucky for us, the Netherlands has plenty of one-stop online stores that have anything you may need (along with all the things you don’t even know you need yet.) 😉


Bol.com: The OG Dutch online shop

Bol.com is THE online shop in the Netherlands — really, Dutchies love this place. And for a good reason: since its start in 1999, Bol.com has repeatedly won multiple awards, including the award for the best online store in the Netherlands. 💪

Bol.com started in 1999 with 26 employees; today, it counts more than 1,800 of them. Much like Amazon, it offers a wide variety of items, from both its own warehouse and products from third parties. 

Unlike Amazon, however, Bol.com continues to be the big boss of the Dutch market. Proudly selling a crazy 12% of all online sales in the Netherlands, Bol.com does almost quadruple the business of Amazon. 📈

💳 Payment methods: iDeal, credit card, bancontact 
📦 Subscriptions: Bol.com Select, €11.99 per year for free delivery and discounts on selected products
Average shipping time: 1-2 working days

As you may know by now, Nederlanders can’t pass up a good deal. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that they love AliExpress. AliExpress is an online retail service based in China, that allows Chinese businesses to sell to customers around the world — and things are CHEAP. 

They offer a wide range of products, but reviews are heel mixed, so it’s a bit of a hit-or-miss situation. 

In review ratings, Trustpilot.com gives AliExpress a 2.7 rating out of 5, out of 127,882 reviews. Our tip: when shopping here, make sure to read individual product reviews. Oh, and watch out for that shipping time. 🤓🔎

🔁 Return policy: Free returns within 15 days


Wehkamp: Connected to Dutch society

Clothing webshops in the Netherland

In case you don’t know it (which we doubt): ASOS a British online clothing retailer that sells over 850 brands and ships to EVERY. SINGLE. COUNTRY. in the world. 🌎

Online electronics retailers in the Netherlands

Picture this: You’re all excited to get a brand new flat-screen TV, you head to the nearest electronics store, and then … the giant box doesn’t fit in your car’s trunk. 😬

Or even worse: you don’t have a car — and there’s no way you can take it on your bike (You’re not Dutch, after all). There is only one easy solution: order your electronics online, and have them delivered to your house.

For that, you’ll need an online electronics store in the Netherlands. Here are the best!

In 2007, Mark Zuckerberg saw an opportunity and, of course, took it: He introduced Facebook Marketplace, Facebook’s very own second-hand platform. 

The introduction of the feature came in response to the popularity of “buy and sell” groups, where people were, well, buying and selling their stuff. 

The only downside to Facebook Marketplace is that you need a Facebook account to use it.

Like with any kind of second-hand shopping, it’s important to be mindful when shopping on Facebook Marketplace. We advise going for sellers in your area and meeting up with them somewhere public for the sale. Safe shopping!

Vinted is an online website and app that lets you buy and sell secondhand items. It’s based in Lithuania, but buyers and sellers in 18 countries love the app — including the Netherlands.

Though mostly geared towards clothing, shoes, and accessories, Vinted technically allows you to trade all sorts of items.
