According to Ecommerce News, Zalando will expand its Connected Retail program to Poland, Sweden, and Spain.

With the Connected Retail program, brick-and-mortar retailers get access to online orders from customers who shop on the Zalando platform. This way, the retailers will keep control over prices, assortment, and shipment quantities.

More than 1,800 brick-and-mortar stores in Germany and the Netherlands are currently connected to the platform. All the connected retailers don’t need to pay a commission fee for two months, the report states.

The crisis is not over and retailers continue to see noticeable effects on their business: consumers are only slowly returning to the high streets. So we decided to not only prolong our offer in our existing markets, Germany and the Netherlands but also to launch Connected Retail with a commission-free offer in three new European markets from July

We’ve reported that the University of Antwerp and research institute Imec have developed Shavatar, a 3D avatar tool that enables consumers to create their own avatars based on a few parameters. The tool then suggests the right size and fit of any given fashion item.
