The sale of surplus eCommerce products was launched in a customer project of Fortuneglobe GmbH for the sale of seasonal surplus products of a large fashion retail group on eBay in 2014. In 2015, the project was taken over by the subsidiary Gute Marken Online GmbH on its own account and subsequently expanded. The great success in marketing in the following years led to steady growth and the acquisition of additional retail partners. In 2018, this division was spun off from the Fortuneglobe subsidiary Gute Marken Online and was transferred to an independent company. Triggered by the participation in the initiative “Digitale Luftbrücke”, which was established during the Corona crisis, ICO Trading started to extend the existing IT platform by a dropshipping solution for the easy integration of stationary retailers.
