Net Price Destination and Place of Origin

Adding New offers in the Seller Office User Interface - Switching to Net price , Destination and Origin:

The internationalization of the METRO Marketplace will introduce important adjustments to help both our sellers and customers benefit from cross-border trading. As part of our expansion, we are switching from Gross price to Net price. In addition, both the origin and the destination of your goods must be indicated. The introduction of this measure serves the purpose of being able to calculate the VAT taxes according to the respective market in the future.

Metro Marketplace will perform a smooth transition, providing a step by step change management processes to facilitate international development.

The starting point will be the introduction of Net Price in the User Interface of the Seller Office. When creating a new offer, we will as of now request you to provide the Origins and the Destinations of the goods.

By developing a new process, the calculation of VAT has been automated, so that no manual calculation is necessary. VAT is calculated automatically by the METRO Marketplace based on the origin and destination of the products

Add or Update Offers via File in the Seller Office - New Template supports Net price, Destination and Origin

The next steps will be to provide options for the Offer File upload, that way you can benefit from the internationalization. Please read the information below for changes that will take place.

In the Seller Office “Manage Offers“ space you will spot a new Offer Template. This Template will be used for the German and other international markets. The New template will support columns that include the Net Price, Origin, and Destination of the goods. Within the new template, the Gross price and VAT are now removed.

We encourage existing and new Sellers to start using the new templates which support international markets, as well as the German market.

Note: In case you are using the previous offer template, it still works for the data upload, but only for Germany.

New API V2 to support International Sales

We are introducing a new Offer API V2 which supports German and International markets. The main changes are:

  • New field:  netPrice

  • New field: netVolumePrices

  • New field: Origin (eg. DE_MAIN, ES_MAIN)

  • New field: Destination( eg. DE_MAIN, ES_MAIN)

Existing Offer API V1 will get status “deprecated” on Jan 01, 2021. We will continue to support API V1 for legacy Sellers during approximately the next 6 months. We predict that our Clients will start using V2 then accordingly.

What are the requirements for cross country delivery for Germany and Spain?

For adding products and selling products to the Spanish market we will need additional documents and information regarding tax.

  1. You must specify if you want to sell to B2C and B2B (or only B2C/only B2B)

  2. You must register in Spain for VAT purposes.

  3. Please identify if you have a Spanish tax number/NIF and if the number is also registered for EU sales only.

If you want to sell to B2B: You must have a permanent establishment for VAT purposes in Spain.

  1. You must also declare if you as a seller will deliver from Germany or Spain to Spanish customers.

  2. If you as the Seller are not used to intracommunity sales (i.e. sales to another EU country) then you must be aware that you should inform your tax advisor for tax purposes regarding intracommunity sales.

If you want to sell to B2C you must have a waived application of the relevant thresholds to apply for a Spanish VAT. This is something that must be declared by the German tax authorities.
