Life & work
Allegro is one of the biggest e-commerce companies in Poland and Europe, and relies on modern technologies. Since 1999, Allegro has been making shopping easier for Poles, offering the best prices, comfort and absolute transaction security.
21 million accounts have so far been created on the platform. Every day customers buy over million products, 90% of which are new items, sold at a fixed price, with a warranty and recently even insurance. Thanks to the cooperation with partners from the financial sector, it has been possible for Allegro to also offer other modern on-line services, such as 0% financing and leasing. There are 100,000 businesses selling through Allegro: not only leading global brands but mostly small and medium Polish trading companies. This allows Allegro to keep contributing to enhancing standards on the e-commerce market, protecting the rights of the consumers and fostering entrepreneurship.
Allegro was established in 1999 in Poznan, and today has offices also in Warsaw, Torun, Wroclaw and Krakow. Initially the company was run by a few people from the basement of a computer hardware wholesaler, and the first version of the site fitted on a single diskette. The Polish e-commerce market was still in its infancy at that time, and Allegro played one of the leading roles in its development. Since then, the company has evolved greatly over the several years: from an auction site for hobbyists to the most popular on-line shopping platforms. Today, Allegro employs 2,100 people, almost half of whom are top experts in technology.
Allegro is one of the strongest Polish brands, standing out with the quality of customer services. This is confirmed by the top positions in the Superbrands, Customer Service Stars or OC&C Retail Proposition Index rankings.
