How can we get our products on Dutch e-marketplaces

Question

We believe there is a strong market there for our brand of UK-made mini cruiser skateboards (Ridge Skateboards). We traditionally enter a market through online markteplaces, mainly Amazon and Ebay, but are aware that NL do not really use those, and have their own home-grown marketplace that require companies to be registered NL businesses with VAT numbers, local addresses and phone numbers. We are unsure how to enter the market without these, or unsure of how to get these. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Best wishes,
Nicky
