Brands.hu says sales set to double in 2011
Hungary's Brands.hu, a designer label membership shopping site, expects sales to reach HUF 700m in 2011, double last year's, managing director Péter Weiler said on Tuesday.
The site gets a 30% commission on sales, on average, and expects its own revenue to be about HUF 210m in 2011. Operating profit is set to reach HUF 20m.
Brands.hu spends HUF 30-40m on developments each year.
