The luxury and one of the most popular clothing retailers Zara has reportedly planned to expand its online sales to an additional 106 countries through a dedicated online platform, mostly in Africa.
This was announced by its parent firm Inditex on Wednesday. The launch clearly states that Zara apparel will be available online in 202 countries now.
“From tomorrow, Zara’s global women’s, men’s and kids collections will be available in a total of 202 markets, underpinned by the integrated store and online platform,” the company said in a statement.
Inditex has said it aims by 2020 to have all its brands, including Massimo Dutti and teen brand Bershka, available online worldwide.
Zara customers in countries including Angola, Ivory Coast and Indonesia will be able to place orders in euros including shipping costs and custom charges as mentioned by the company.
Orders will be filled from the online platform in Spain. Online sales at Inditex jumped 41% in 2017 to reach 10% of group net sales, although this left it behind some rivals.
