If you are looking for a mobile phone, tablet, or gadget, Gomibo is the place to go! Among more than 600 mobile phones you will find well-known brands such as Apple and Samsung, but also less well-known manufacturers such as Realme, Cat, and Fairphone, and high-quality Chinese phones from Xiaomi and OnePlus. Besides this, we also offer a wide range of speakers, headphones, and other accessories.
Gomibo is a part of the Dutch telecom webshop Belsimpel. With an online market share of almost 50%, Belsimpel is already a big player in the Dutch market.

We deliver from our own stock, so your order will arrive at your home in no time.
We offer the largest range of phones, from well-known brands like Apple and Samsung, to lesser-known brands like Realme, Xiaomi, and Gigaset.
We deliver from our own stock. Because of this, we can deliver orders in the whole of Europe within 1-2 business days. You can return your order for free up to 31 days after you've received it.
Your order is completed within a few clicks.
Our customer service is open every day from 08:00 - 23:00.
Jeroen & Jeroen are the founders of Belsimpel and Gomibo. As young students in Groningen, the Netherlands, they started their first webshop in 2006. Now, together with more than 700 colleagues, they fight every day for the best offer of phones, tablets, and accessories. Our mission? To help everyone find what suits them best: whether you already know what you are looking for, or whether you need a little help and advice.
It's 2006: Groningen students Jeroen Doorenbos (21) and Jeroen Elkhuizen (23) start web shop Metjelaptoponline.nl from the comfort of their student house. Two years later successor Belsimpel.nl is registered and in the following years the web shop wins several prizes, including the Deloitte Technology Fast50 Award in 2012. In 2014 Belsimpel opens its first physical store in Groningen, in The Netherlands. By now Belsimpel has 7 stores spread throughout the Netherlands, where customers can go with all their questions. In 2018 ‘Belsimpel.nl’ becomes ‘Belsimpel’ and a new campaign starts: De Belsimpel Methode™. The launch of the Belsimpel app is also a fact. Starting in 2019, the Bizarre Belsimpel Dagen are a recurring special offer period and Belsimpel expands shipping: you can now order your phone from Germany, Finland, and the United Kingdom, among others. With your Belsimpel account you will have insight into all your data, contracts, and previous orders as from August 2019.
In no time at all, Belsimpel has grown from a company in a student room into one of the largest players on the Dutch telecoms market, with increasing influence in the European market!
In November 2020 Belsimpel officially expands abroad with a new name: Gomibo. The expansion starts in Germany, with Gomibo.de. In the following months, Gomibo websites will follow in 15 other European countries, including France, Italy, and Ireland.
In July 2023, Gomibo officially gets certified as a Great Place To Work. The questionnaire conducted among all colleagues showed that Gomibo scored 78% on the basis of trust, pride, and fun, also known as the Trust Index. This score has been rewarded with the GPTW certificate.
Aside from making a difference in the European market, Belsimpel is also internationalising internally. We now have 750 colleagues with more than 20 different nationalities.
Belsimpel expands further into Europe under the domain name Gomibo. Customers from a total of fifteen countries can now order on their own domain. Gomibo operates in more than 27 European countries. In countries including Luxembourg, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Czechia, Ireland, Portugal, Malta, Hungary and Cyprus, Gomibo is working to make a difference in the local market and thus change the international Mobile World.
