Then print your label and stick it on the  parcel you want to send, or put it in a plastic document pocket and attach it to the shipment. If you do not print shipping details, you will need to use a label that you can download at any of our service points.

How German consumers shop online

Germany is at the forefront of countries that have come farthest in terms of e-commerce in Europe. Consumers are used to e-commerce and are active online. Consumers who have not yet taken out on the internet but are expected to do so in the near future are estimated at just over 5 percent. This is primarily due to increased purchasing frequency and higher purchase prices as e-commerce in Germany grows in the coming years.

Payments and returns in Germany

When it comes to payment, Germany is a country that stands out. Fifty-two percent of Germans state that they prefer invoice payment when shopping online, which is the highest proportion in Europe. One reason for this may be that customers are largely able to test the goods before paying. There are laws on free returns and customers have high expectations of efficient returns management. Germany has the highest proportion of returns in Europe.
