Supermarkets in F/DE: online order, deliver/collect from Swiss address?

Hi everyone,


new in Basel and new to the forum, and I was wondering if anyone knows whether there is a supermarket in France or Germany that will allow you to do online ordering for either delivery or click and collect, using a Swiss address?


Thanks!

Not sure- at HyperU in France you can order on-line and collect at reception- but never tried with Swiss address. Interesting question- will have a look.

Wouldn't it be considered importing, though?

And, if so, wouldn't you have to pay tax on that, depending on the amount?

Yes.

If you go for the click and collect option then it is exactly the same as going and doing the shopping yourself in terms of customs and limits etc. You will be physically bringing the stuff across the border yourself. The only real advantage I can see in doing this is time saving as you don't have to physically go around the store yourself but pay someone else to do it for you.

Intermarche certainly allows you to do this with a Swiss address . I don't think any if the French supermarkets offer actual delivery to Switzerland.

I do click and collect at intermarche quite a lot - it just saves me time in my weekly shop. I asked if they delivered to Switzerland but they said no.

I might try Intermarche - is the one in Bartenheim the closest to Switzerland?


I have 2 and a half year old twins so delivery or even click and collect makes our life tons easier (and it means we get roughly what we went in for instead of 4 different types of breakfast cereal and a crate of pom-bears!)

Please, if you are gong to post a question, then at least read the answers.

You live in Basel Switzerland. Intermarché is in France. French supermarkets do not deliver to Switzerland, especially as they would be exporting the stuff.

Swiss supermarkets will deliver to your door, but you pay for the service.
Please, if you are going to bitch at other posters, then at least read their posts:

Yes it would appear that this is the nearest one to Basel.

You have nothing to lose by giving it a go and saving yourself the time of doing the shopping yourself.
Keep the import limits in mind when you place your order and take as many people as possible with you when you collect to maximise your allowance. The twins also qualify for everything except alcohol and cigarettes.

Not sure what Sbrinz's gripe is, your reply seemed perfectly reasonable to me.
