New Address- Can't buy anything by Invoice?

So since we've moved house the "Pay by Rechnung" option is not available to me on various online shopping websites and the message displayed is "your residential address is not known to the credit assessment body". How do I fix this?

Call the "credit assessment body" on how to resolve this.

If you do not know who this is contact one of the stores to get things rolling.

Okay, I thought there would be a standard/ Central credit rating body or something and that once you register at a new Gemeinde your Credit history "travels" with you, or perhaps not...

Yes it does, but also the address where you live is important. If for example a lot of people in a street/area default, you also no longer can use paying by invoice because of those others.

Did you move into a newly built area?

It does/should

But they say that your address is unknown to them, so unless you want to be patient and hope it fixes itself (which it might if you really just moved recently and/or your house has been build very recently), you have to make sure they do get your address.

Thatīs the answer then. Until they have sufficient experience you will be on paying in advance for any order with a new company

That sounds like an assumption to me and is not in line with the text OP received.

No, that is reality. Credit scores are also based on where you live.
