Our story
Two young entrepreneurs started in 2006 with the online sale of products on a small scale on different platforms. This proved to be a great success. During this period of massive growth, we also created our own brand and started producing our own vidaXL branded products. The number of products grew exponentially, and the next logical step was to start selling in more countries on our own web shops. Our success is in the sourcing of products and offering these products at competitive prices. We continuously look for new cost-reducing measures, without compromising on quality or sustainability.

Our business
We do market research and find out what kind of products are in high demand. Once that’s determined, we negotiate with factories that produce these produces, after which we purchase them in bulk – directly from the source. Because of this process we’re able to influence the design and packaging of the products, which allows us to optimise the entire process – and this means that in the end, you, our customer, will pay a very reasonable price for our products.

We also have our own factory where we produce several types of chipboard furniture. For these products, we have even more say in the entire production process, which again makes the price you pay as our customer very favourable.

Our goal
Customers are becoming more and more price conscious, and vidaXL facilitates this development by offering products for in and around the house at competitive prices. We aim to make all these products accessible to as many customers as possible.

Our customers
We sell our products to customers in 29 European countries, the United States and Australia, and are always hard at work to expand and reach even more customers. We also offer customer service in the native language of all the countries that we are active in.

Our promise
As a customer of vidaXL you can hold us to the following promises:

  • Good price
    There’s nothing we dislike more than spending too much money, and we’re sure we’re not alone in this. By keeping complete control over the supply and production process we’ll always be able to offer our products at a good price.
  • Good service
    Our customer service is excellent. If you have any questions about a product, shipping or payment, our customer service agents are always ready to help you out in your native language. Delivery and returns are always free. And of course, if something goes wrong (as we are human, after all) we promise to resolve the issue to your satisfaction.
  • Good feeling
    Shopping at vidaXL should make you feel good, and we promise you that shopping on our web shops will always give you the rush of finding a great deal.

About HANOS.

HANOS was established in 1975 as a cash-and-carry wholesaler for Apeldoorn and the surrounding area. In 1980 the decision was made to expand the range of fresh fish, meat and fruit and vegetables (potatoes, vegetables and fruit), so that restaurant and hospitality entrepreneurs could do all their shopping under one roof, the so-called one-stop shopping. In 1982, HANOS also started with a delivery service and chose the course of an international catering wholesaler, because the demand for foreign fresh products increased explosively. Since 1989 HANOS has been importing wines from various wineries all over the world.
