Hamburg, 27 September 2018 – Starting today, XXL Webhosting (www.xxlwebhosting.nl), one of the largest hosting providers in the Netherlands, will be offering its customers new online shop packages. These are based on the cloud-based commerce platform from ePages (www.epages.com), a leading international provider of online shop solutions.

With this partnership, ePages extends its presence in the Netherlands by making future-proof commerce packages available to the XXL Webhosting customer base of more than 40,000 websites. Online shopping continues to expand enormously in the Netherlands. According to a Statistics Netherlands (CBS) study, the country ranks fifth in the European Union with 79% of its population already shopping online. This, in conjunction with the foreseen rates of fast growth in the coming years, refers to the continuous demand for affordable, multi-channel SMB retail solutions.
The powerful cloud-driven software from ePages is engineered specifically for startups and ambitious online retailers looking for a modern, all-in-one solution to sell successfully online. Merchants can easily design their shops by selecting one of the many responsive design templates, create new products and manage their content with the intuitive drag-and-drop-editor. Reliability, security, and high performance are guaranteed via the resilient network infrastructure of XXL Webhosting.
ePages Now provides online merchants with a rich set of features they need to centralize and optimize their ecommerce activities. Using the powerful commerce cockpit, merchants can add products once, and sell them across multiple channels, such as marketplaces and price comparison portals; fully synchronized and inventoried. Furthermore, they have the option to offer a variety of payment methods, including iDeal, the most popular online payment method in the Netherlands.
Sander Cruiming, CEO of XXL Webhosting, comments: “Our mission is to help entrepreneurs and small businesses be successful online. An online store is more and more an important part of that strategy. A large number of our customers have struggled with setting up other shop solutions. We have decided to partner with ePages to enable customers to quickly and easily start selling online.
