Q: Does The Taste of Germany have any retail stores?
A: No, we only operate online. You possibly can find some of the products offered on this website at specialty food retailers in your area. Please check our "Find a retailer" list on germanfoods.org. If you cannot find an item in your area, please contact us and we may direct you further.
Q: Why do you charge a shipping variation, handling fee or tax, when my state does not demand taxes for food or online purchases?
A: As we source and compile hard-to-find products from different importers, or even buy some products from local retailers at full retail prices to complete an order, we charge a flat 9.65% fee at checkout on the total purchase to offset varying costs for handling, shipping, sourcing as well as local DC or MD taxes.
Q: Do you require a minimum spending amount for my order:
A: Yes, in order to make your online purchase economical for both sides, we're asking for a minimum purchase order of $25.00. If you purchase less than $25.00, we reserve the right to cancel your order and refund the money.
Q: Do you offer wholesale prices for case size orders
A: Yes, you can order any item we offer in our store by the case and receive significant discounts. The higher the purchase volume, the higher the discount (up to 30% off the published price).
Q: Do you mail out printed or PDF catalogs
A: No, we do not produce or print catalogs, because our product selection and availability varies week by week. Browse each category of our website to discover all of the 1,100+ products that we offer.
