UPDATE (28-03): I received some info that Rebelio is on the verge of bankruptcy. Currently they are just selling off their inventory. Probably they already ran out of stock in Great Brittain, where they are trying to squeeze out every penny by referring to other webshops… For consumers and the trust in webshops this is not a very great showcase. If you are almost bankrupt, just close the store and cut your losses.
It is strange to see that Rebelio in Continental Europe (Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Italy, Spain and Turkey) is a total different website then the ones in Great Britain (UK and Ireland). In Great Britain Rebelio has a different design (strongly resembling Pricegrabber!) and offers webshops the possibility to get listed on their website. This looks like the PixPlace strategy that Pixmania recently launched. However, at Rebelio it becomes quite confusing as they use the same name for both concepts. In all other countries Rebelio is still just a webshop selling products.

I am not really sure where this will lead… I also know that the chat of Rebelio.nl has been offline for quite some time. As this is the only means of contacting Rebelio one might begin to wonder what is happening.
If anyone knows more, let me know
UPDATE (27-06): Rebelio websites are down. They have closed their business at least in The Netherlands, perhaps also in all other countries. Read more
