Parcel processing is already available within our local addresses in seventeen European countries using our local addresses. Part of this essential service for expanding online shops is to address specific and individual needs – From immediate record keeping and reporting, through to the storage of goods, and the thorough inspection of packages.
Expandeco rents a local address, which the online shop specifies on its website in the terms and conditions, and in the complaint form.
In the case of a problem or complaint, the customer can send the goods back via any courier company or postal service within their country.
The package is recorded in the internal CRM system. The information is then immediately uploaded to the client interface, where the online shop has full control over returns and the ability to communicate directly with the collection point and manage the collection of shipments according to current needs.
We temporarily store the received packages and send them as a consolidated shipment directly to the online shop’s central warehouse according to an agreed frequency.

Interesting facts about the Hungarian market
The expansion into Hungary has several other major advantages for us besides geographical proximity. However, the market is already seeing dynamic growth in online shopping via smartphones with cashless payments.
When localizing, however, one should not forget the specifics of the market, such as the necessity of listing prices in Hungarian forint, joining the popular price comparison site árukereső, or having a sufficient overview of the Hungarian competition, including the largest marketplace emag.hu. In addition to the complexity of Hungarian, it is also necessary to think about small things, such as writing first and last names in reverse order, or writing the date in the year-month-day format.
In addition, Hungary has one of the highest standard VAT rates in the EU. When expanding to our southern neighbors, our expansion specialists will be happy to advise you on how to avoid all the pitfalls and how to win over Hungarian customers. For example, they like to pay special attention to reviews before buying online, read extensive product descriptions with picture attachments, and make decisions based on prices or discounts offered.
