Integrated retail levels-up with new partnership between Sitoo & Zalando Connected Retail
April 9, 2021 – As an innovative player in the retail landscape Sitoo (POS and unified commerce platform), now supports Zalando in enabling retailers to seamlessly sell in-store products online to millions of customers.
2020 saw ecommerce explode in popularity with 10 years worth of growth happening in just three months (Source: McKinsey) as a result of COVID-19. This growth in popularity of online shopping has accelerated the need for physical retailers to digitize their business.

This integration will make it simple for retailers to easily connect their stores into Zalando Connected Retail meaning they can increase their revenue and turnover as well as providing customers with more product and fulfillment options – such as fulfilling and shipping orders directly from the store.
«With Connected Retail, we offer stores the possibility to sell to millions of Zalando customers. We are happy to have Sitoo on board to enable retailers to connect their stores even faster and ensure a seamless and easy onboarding,» says Carsten Keller, VP Direct-to-Consumer at Zalando.
