Over 50% of German online stores do not offer international shipping. With Mailbox Germany, 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.
Our company is located in Merseburg (Saxony-Anhalt), very close to the DHL World Cargo Center in Leipzig as well as to other depot locations (UPS, TNT, DPD, Hermes, GLS) in Central Germany.
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 Mailbox-Germany.com is already available in German, English and French. With Vireo.de 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.
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.
