What lies behind the idea of this Krautbox?
~Over 50% of German online stores do not offer international shipping. With MyKrautbox,
we enable customers worldwide to buy in Germany, as if they were living in Germany themselves.~

Even at major companies, such as Amazon .or Ebay, it often depends on the respective retailer, if international shipping is available or not. With our service, you get the possibility to buy and receive products at all German online stores from wherever you are in the world. Moreover, we set the goal for us to make our logistics services available not only to companies, but also to end customers to reasonable prices and to provide extensive online services.

  • For Germans living abroad MyKrautbox offers Po boxes and storage space that can comfortably be managed online from home
  • MyKrautbox is an international postal service that mainly aims at providing services for foreign customers shopping at German online stores

Use locational advantages

What is the current status and when does it start?
So far we have achieved a great deal. We are holder of an official postal license that allows us to receive and forward letters, magazines and packages. Most of the content of our website is already available in German, English and French. With ca 10.000 overseas shipments have been successfully realized. Legal frameworks have been defined in collaboration with specialized lawyers. Meanwhile, three programmers have been working relentlessly on the technical implementation of the website. Programming entails considerable financial expenses and that is why we need your support.

On 28. April we will start our 30-day Crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Our goal is to earn 20.000€ within that period. If we are successful, we will be able to start offering our services this fall.

Personal Appeal

I am convinced that together we will reach the target sum of 20.000 EUR. Each amount exceeding this sum would be fantastic! I think the time has come to convert this idea into reality and am convinced that our services will make a real difference. I myself have been living abroad for several years and would have appreciated very much if such things had existed back then. We cannot wait to put our idea into practice but for that we need no less than your support.
