Over 1.4 million first-day visitors in Italy
Just like with previous launches, About You started a big marketing campaign in hopes of garnering attention. Advertisements are being rolled out on TV, radio and online. There seems to be market potential: on the first day, the platform drew more than 1.4 million visitors in Italy, and over 500 thousand in Greece and Portugal.

9 million active customers in 2021
The German platform went public earlier this year. The retailer has around 9 million active customers in 2021, compared to 6.5 million last year. Although the Covid-19 pandemic has left its marks on the fashion part of ecommerce, About You expects revenues to increase up to 50 percent over the whole year, according to their last quarterly report. This would mean an expected revenue between 1.63 and 1.75 billion euros.
