Boasting the fourth largest percentage of online shoppers of any European country, 85% of the population in the Netherlands is estimated to buy online. The Netherlands, therefore, presents an unmissable opportunity for eCommerce merchants seeking to grow their business. Unfortunately, a new restriction on Amazon’s latest site poses an obstacle that overseas merchants will need to mitigate.
Unlike other Amazon Europe platforms where you can use a currency account located anywhere in the Eurozone to collect proceeds from your sales, Amazon’s newest site, Amazon.nl, requires a Netherlands-based account in order to receive your payouts.
WorldFirst can help
WorldFirst is delighted to be able to offer EUR collection accounts based in the Netherlands, allowing you to gain access to one of the most exciting new European marketplaces in recent years. These local currency accounts are available to new and existing customers alike, contact us so you can maximise the opportunity that Amazon.nl presents.
You could benefit from our transparent pricing. As a new WorldFirst customer you will be allocated a 0.5% FX fee if you open an International payments account and a 0.6% fee if you open an International collection account.
The World Account solution we provide gives you access to collection accounts in up to 10 different currencies. You can use the World Account to efficiently manage your incoming and outgoing foreign currencies, saving you time and money in the process.
Our World Account also presents an opportunity to sell on what has traditionally been the dominant online marketplace in the Netherlands, Bol.com. See more information on how to set up your World Account.
