A beta website is an early preview version of a website, not complete, and not yet replacing the previous website. During a beta phase, we are working hard to polish everything - the content, the navigation, the layout, and more. We are listening to feedback closely, trying to improve the website as quickly as possible.
We're really excited about the improvements we've made to our website. While we're still polishing, we want to share with you the evolution of our website. We’ll also learn from the way you explore the beta website, so please take your time and have a good look round.
We have not only modernised the design, we have built the new website to be easier to use and faster than the current website. Furthermore, you can now use the same design and feature set across all your devices, on your desktop. tablet, or phone.
On your desktop and tablet, you will see a prominent banner on the top of the page. You likely clicked a link inside that banner to get to this information page. On phones, the banner is on the bottom of the page. All your shopping progress and your login status will work seamlessly when switching between the old and the beta website.
You will see a prominent link on every page that allows you to leave the beta website. It will return you to the old website. All your shopping progress and your login status will work seamlessly when switching between the old and the beta website.
We are planning to have the beta website around for a few weeks. Within that time we will finish the remaining work to ensure everything is working just as you expect it from our current website. Then we will replace the old website with the new modernised version.
There are just a few. While all your shopping will work and is as secure as on our old website, some of our information pages, promotions, and specialised features may be limited. The layout of those pages may look slightly incomplete while we're still polishing up. If you are missing a feature you are used to seeing, it is likely not yet available, however you can switch back to the old website at any time and continue shopping as you are used to.
