What is the procedure to get registered on your website?

Registration on our website includes 2 stages:

User registration

If you do not yet have a user account on our website, when registering your first online store/ e-shop, please enter your personal data to register a site user, including your last and first name, address, phone number, email address, preferred username and password. Immediately after filling out and saving the registration form/signup form, a website user account will be opened for you. The user account has to be activated by clicking on the link in the email that will be sent to you right after the registration form/signup form saving. Upon activating your account, you can log in to the site. The account is free and perpetual. In the future, should you decide to register another online store/ e-shop, you will not need open another account. Having one account, you can work with the information about several online stores that you own.

E-shop registration

Upon filling out and saving the registration form/signup form on our website, a user account will be created for you. We will then review your online store registration application request within 10 business days. If we decide to register your online store, we will issue an invoice for the registration fee and send it to you along with an email. After you have paid the registration fee, within 10 business days your online store information will be displayed on a dedicated page as well as in appropriate online stores catalogues on our website. Next, we will send you an email informing you about the performance of the services paid for. After that, you can log in to the site and, should it be necessary, edit your online store description.

What should I do if I want to register several online stores?

If you want to register several online stores, to begin with, you have to apply for the registration of your first online store. When registering the first online store, a user account will be created for you on the website. After you have activated your account, you can apply for registering all subsequent online stores, indicating while registering your username and password of the account already existing on our website. Thus, one user can at a time work with several online stores/ e-shops registered by them. If you are a representative of online stores/ e-shops belonging to different owners, you can create a user account for each online store individually.

Can I register my online store if I do not have my own store website as I sell products through digital marketplaces/ trading platforms such as Amazon, eBay and others?

Yes, on our website you can register your online store presented by you on one of the online trading platforms. In this case, when filling out the registration form/signup form, please indicate your Web address on the trading platform. Otherwise, the registration of an online store/ e-shop with a unicast Internet address and the one opened on one of the online trading platforms will not differ from each other.

What are the advantages of registering on your website?

Detailed information about this is available on a dedicated page of our website: «online store presentation at RU-GELD.DE: opportunities and conditions».

How can I place information on the goods/products/merchandise sold in my online store on your website?

If you post information about the goods you sell through such affiliate programs as Awin, Amazon, eBay and others, you can inform us about it when filling out the registration form/signup form or later by email. We will consider the possibility of presenting some or all of the goods/ products of your online store as part of one of the affiliate programs.

Will the information about my e-shop be presented in all the languages in which your website is presented?

The information about your e-shop can be presented in all the languages in which our website is available on the Internet: German, English, Russian, and Polish. To this purpose, please enter the information regarding the online store in the said languages on our website. This can be done when filling out the registration form/signup form or later by logging into the site. Placing the information about the e-shop in all the languages available on the website shall NOT be paid for extra. Please do not use machine translation systems to translate the information about your online store/ e-shop into other languages. Such a low-quality translation is detrimental to the website ranking and is considered by search engines as spam. To find an appropriate translator, you can use the following website: EUservice24.info

What shall I do if my online store has already been registered on your website?

If your online store has already been registered on our website, for example, by the previous owner thereof, and now you want to personally be able to work with the information regarding your online store on our site, please go through the routine registration procedure for a user and for an online store. In this case, we will cleanly delete the previously placed information as to the online store (including the site population reviews) on our website.

What are the reasons for which an e-shop registration request can be rejected?

Under the Website Terms of Use, your online store registration request may be rejected by us for whatever reason and without giving a reason (i.e. quietly). The main reasons for refusing to register an online store are as follows:
