How to shop at METRO

Examples: Who can shop where?

We will explain who can become a METRO
customer and where you are entitled to buy from METRO using the following four examples.

Buy as a private person in the METRO online shop

Private individuals can browse and shop directly in the METRO online shop. It does not matter if you are already a METRO customer. The online store is open to everyone!

Shop as a business owner in the METRO online shop

In addition to private individuals, business owners, self-employed persons and customers can also become customers and shop in the METRO online shop. For you as a business owner or self-employed person to take advantage of benefits such as volume discounts, no written proof is required.

Your invoices will be made out to your company, so that any VAT paid on commercially used products can be reclaimed. You can display the business customer prices (net prices) in the METRO online shop.

If you have already created a customer account as a private person and run a business, you can subsequently add your business. You will not receive a customer card for the wholesale store, and you can only shop in the online store.
