The blackfriday.ch project

blackfriday.ch is evolution of swiss.blackfriday the first web portal launched in 2015. Since the creation of blackfriday.ch, interest in Black Friday has been growing steadily every year. The notoriety but also the expertise of the platform allowed it to reach more than 500,000 visits in 2017 and more than 1 Million in 2018.

Blackfriday.ch is the first media outlet dedicated to Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now Single’s Day promotions in Switzerland available in 4 languages: German, French, Italian and English. Our mission? Boost shopping in Switzerland with a platform entirely dedicated to discounts and Black Friday events. Easy to use, convenient for consumers as well as e-retailers, Swiss shops and boutiques.

When Black Friday arrived in Switzerland, it was Manor, the first major brand, that opened it to all. With so much success among brands, distributors and consumers, more and more brands joined the movement.

We are a team of e-commerce experts, designers, developers, consultants and journalists, passionate about innovative shopping and e-commerce. And even though Black Friday is a controversial subject because it disrupts the rhythms of online commerce and shops, we are convinced that it is a real opportunity for businesses, e-commerce and stores. And more than ever, we believe that the Swiss retail trade needs new periods, events, energy and shopping experiences to reinvent itself and grow #lessoldescestout. From this belief blackfriday.ch was born, the official portal of Black Friday in Switzerland. The purpose of this platform? Develop business in Switzerland, in the city and online.
