We drive digital solutions for fashion, logistics, advertising and research, bringing head-to-toe fashion to more than 23 million active customers through diverse skill-sets, interests and languages our teams choose to use.

ABOUT THE TEAM

The Pre-owned team is part of the "Recommerce" unit in DX. We are Zalando's circularity and fashion recommerce team. We enable everyone to fulfill their desire to refresh their wardrobes in a more sustainable way - by providing fresh, quality assortment and an unmatched level of convenience. Concretely, we provide customers with the opportunity to trade in their lightly worn items, and buy pre-owned fashion. We define "pre-owned" as second-hand-fashion items from popular ("highstreet") brands that are in like-new condition, which we present in a high-standard environment.

We are at an early stage of the business: In end of 2020 we integrated into the Zalando Fashion Store, launching the Pre-owned category. This is the first launch of a new category in the Fashion Store since 2018. The category is currently live in most of Zalando markets (DE, FR, ES, NL, PL, BE, IT, FI, SE, DK, CZ, IE, AT) and more markets will follow soon. Pre-owned is a strategically relevant topic for Zalando group, contributing to our customer promises, our strategy of becoming the starting point for fashion and the circularity goals in our sustainability strategy (do. More).

In addition, the recommerce propositions are available on the Zalando Zircle Apps and the Zalando Zircle Webshops.
