Cdiscount is a French-based e-commerce store, founded in 1998 and headquartered in Bordeaux. It remains the third most popular French e-commerce site, next only to Amazon.fr and Veepee.fr., offering a huge variety of household appliances, food, cosmetics, clothing and electronics, all organised into categories throughout 40 stores. Aside from that, Cdiscount has started offering goods and services under its' own brand since 2016, such as financing, travel, wine, insurance and prepaid SIM cards.
On top of just France, Cdiscount also operates in Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Spain, Italy and, formerly, Brazil.
Packages are currently delivered seven days a week, depending on the courier.
Cdiscount was founded in 1998 by the Charle brothers: Herve, Christophe and Nicolas, - as a CD and DVD disc vendor. During its' first few years, its' portfolio has been expanded to feature electronics in 2001, household appliances in 2004, wine in 2007, furniture and decor in 2008 and toys in 2009.
The company has been owned by Casino Group since 2000, first as a subsidiary, then by owning 79,6% of its' capital by 2008, complete with restructuring, then by owning 99,6% of its' capital. The restructuring brought over a new board of directors, consisting entirely of Casino Group's founders and representatives.
Cdiscount also opened a few physical stores throughout France, including a 2006 one, located in Le Bouscat, a suburb of Bordeaux, and a 2011 in Rue le Bac, a district in Paris. Those stores used to offer only the best selling products from their online counterpart, and also to serve as pickup points for small packages ordered from the website. Due to them not performing as expected, both were closed. Since 2010, Cdiscount uses relay points for their deliveries instead, most of them located in Casino stores.
Aside from its' own online store, Cdiscount also operates a third-party marketplace, starting out as "C le marche" in 2011, and renamed into Cdiscount Marketplace soon after.
Cdiscount has made an attempt to internationalise outside of Europe, with the opening of cdiscount.com.br in 2014, a Brazilian branch, supported by Casino Group's own Cnova N.V. However, this venture didn't work out, due to a case of accounting fraud (resulting in a loss of over 275 million euro) and Casino Group selling their Asian subsidiaries, forcing Cdiscount to focus on its' European operations, primarily in its' home country.
Nowadays, Cdiscount has served over 16 million customers, with goods from it being delivered by such international couriers as Mondial Relay, Relais Colis, Colissimo, TNT, DPD and Chronopost. Deliveries are made to homes, to postal lockers or to relay points. For countries Cdiscount does not operate in, packages are sent via Colis Expat: they have to be less than 30kg in weight, and will be delivered via one of the partnering couriers.

How to find Cdiscount tracking number
Cdiscount package tracking number is usually provided by Cdiscount itself after the order is confirmed and the parcel is sent off. Usually, to find it, all you need to do is check either the store's orders page, or the order confirmation email.
Where is the Cdiscount tracking number, if neither of the above have it? Bear in mind that certain items require you to pay extra to provide detailed package tracking, or any kind of tracking at all, which might be why your package isn't present in most postal databases out there. If you're not sure, or if you're certain there is tracking attached to your item, make sure you check out Cdiscount 's help pages or, if you still have no luck finding it, call Cdiscount 's customer support.
