5. Let's go:

Once you have clicked the button, you’re nearly finished and only need to configure a few settings before you can start selling.

First comes the eligibility check required for all of our marketplace partners. Some of these are verifications required by law:

 

  • Know-Your-Customer (KYC) – verifying business data and identifying the company’s legal representative to prevent money laundering and financing terrorism (EU AML Directive)
  • Retailer verification – verifying your tax ID to prevent tax losses due to online sales (BMF publication)
  • Credit check

 

We will also need:

 

  • Information about shipping & returns
  • Payment information (B2B)
  • Information about you as the merchant on otto.de
