The German online pet supply store Zooplus is launching a subscription program in Belgium and the Netherlands. In total, the Zooplus subscription model will now be available in 8 different countries. 

Zooplus aims to gradually expand this model to all the remaining markets in which it currently operates.  According to the retailer, it has online stores in 30 different European countries. In 2023, it launched a flexible subscription program in Germany and Austria.

Now, the subscription program is also available to customers in the Netherlands and Belgium. With the subscription, customers select their favorite pet products from a large selection of items. They can indicate their preferred shipping frequency, after which the product will be automatically and regularly delivered to them, in a way similar to what Amazon offers. 

This is especially useful for products such as pet food or litter, as owners need to order these frequently. The program can be adjusted or paused at any time.

“The launch of our subscription model in the Netherlands marks a new milestone in delivering on our ambition to become the ultimate destination for pet parents across Europe. By offering the best choice and most convenient service, we aim to elevate our customers’ experience and drive further loyalty”, said Geoffrey Lefebvre, CEO of Zooplus.
