Netherlands Online shopping is great but can be overwhelming when you first move abroad. There are a lot of local sites specific to the Netherlands. The beginner’s guide below summarize the most common and best sites to use for Online Shopping Netherlands.
Bol.com – Best Everything Online Shopping Netherlands
Bol.com is the best site by far in the Netherlands. It is the Dutch equivalent of Amazon. Similar to Amazon they have millions of products with very short delivery times. They also partner with Albert Heijn for delivery and returns making it super easy. They have free shipping over 20 euros but also have a “prime” like program called Select. They have everything from toys for your dog to gym equipment.
The site is in Dutch so installing the Google Translate chrome extension is a life saver. See section below, if you do not have it already. I will also use google translate to see the name of the product in Dutch to search.
