BikeExchange Partners with Blaupunkt E-Bikes for DTC, Retail Sales
February 22, 2023
Iconic electronic brand’s new e-bike line now available for purchase exclusively on BEX website
Asheville, North Carolina (February 22, 2023) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – In an effort to simplify the buying process while also increasing their North American (NA) presence, renowned electronics brand Blaupunkt has signed an exclusive agreement with BikeExchange, the world’s biggest online marketplace for bikes and bike products: BEX is now the sole direct-to-consumer sales outlet in NA for Blaupunkt’s recently launched line of foldable e-bikes.
BEX will provide a one-stop ecommerce platform with added marketing support and logistics through their subsidiary Kitzuma Cycling Logistics. A presence on BEX is also instrumental in building brand awareness, especially for newer brands: potential consumers may not know about the Blaupunkt e-bikes, so they wouldn’t head directly to that website.
And by offering consumers a single site on which to search through hundreds of brands and retailers for their next bike, Blaupunkt bikes will pop up under BEX’s wide variety of search options, as well as participating retailers’ storefronts, introducing the bikes to potentially new consumers.
Blaupunkt sees this one-stop option as beneficial in many ways. “We know the Blaupunkt name is already well regarded in North America, but most of those folks probably don’t associate it with e-bikes,” says Brian Tedesco, President/CEO BP Technology Americas “Hopefully this new partnership will change that. BEX’s unique platform will introduce us to a nationwide audience of consumers and retailers, while also streamlining the shopping experience for all involved, especially those who go through with the purchase.”
Consumers looking to buy one of Blaupunkt’s foldable e-bikes can start on either website, or, if using the brand’s own site, the ‘buy now’ button will take them directly to the dedicated product page on the BEX website. All pertinent information on the bikes will live on BEX’s site, including full spec, positioning, inventory, shipping options and more, and the remainder of the buying process will take place on the BEX website.
“We’re excited to be working with an iconic brand like Blaupunkt,” says Garret Becker, BEX Head of Sales, “and we’re confident that their outstanding bikes, marketed and sold on our proven platform, will be the perfect combination to drive sales to a large audience in North America.”
