So you can, for example, quickly get an overview of the relevant companies, whether local, regional or national, save entries in a personal watch list and export them together with other storable characteristics such as email addresses, e.g. for import into MS Outlook ©** or your Customer Relationship Management System (CRM). You can then target them with your mailings. We will be happy to assist you in selecting a suitable CRM.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Should you rent or buy company addresses?

The question of whether to buy or rent company addresses, e.g. for direct marketing purposes, occupies many entrepreneurs, founders and managing directors.

At FDS, you receive the company addresses via data access to our company database, which has a term and thus an update period of 12 months after the order date. Your advantage: You always have up-to-date addresses and do not have to maintain and manage them manually, as is the case with competitions via an Excel list, for example.

In accordance with our license and terms of use, you can continue to use the address data after the 12 months have expired, i.e. in contrast to rented addresses, you can also use them multiple times and for different mailings, but you will then no longer receive any updates or address updates.

If you are currently looking for contact addresses of companies for your marketing or sales, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to answer your questions about the variants of our company database.

How does direct marketing work?

Direct marketing is a good way of addressing potential customers relatively inexpensively and thus bypassing the competition reflected in high click prices for online ads such as Google Ads. Another advantage is that the costs for a direct marketing campaign can be planned. In addition to the pure printing costs, the mailing costs are always the same and the volume, i.e. the number of recipients, is also fixed in advance. With our lettershop service, you have the option of having us put together individual address packages for you. Request now!

Where can I find marketing addresses?

Company addresses or marketing addresses are part of our company database, which currently contains over 3 million companies in Germany from all industries that are listed in the commercial register.

All information, such as the scope and functions of the company database, can be found here.

You need individual lists or data compilations? Please contact us here .

What should I consider when buying B2B addresses?

In addition to the timeliness and scope of address data, the pricing as well as the range of functions of the company addresses is also relevant for the buyer.

Often, with other providers, you only receive simple Excel lists that do not update automatically and that you can usually only manage and maintain locally on your PC. This makes it difficult to work on the data set at the same time.

With our company database we offer you not only a comprehensive overview of the German company landscape, but also a clear customer area with the help of which you can select the companies, put them on lists and further filter and sort them. A To-Do, Memo, and Favorites lists as well as a rating function for personal assessment of the relevance of an entry (1-5 stars) for further prioritization (high, medium, low) are included.

This gives you a clear advantage over other solutions on the market with the time-saving selection and management functions, and you don't have to be an Excel professional to create these functions yourself.

Finally, access to our company database with access to around 3 million company addresses is available for as little as €549 per state or €849 for the whole of Germany, while other providers charge from 10 to 37 cents per address.

You can find more information about the company database here.

If you have any questions, you can contact us via our contact form or by phone.

What does your optimal distribution solution look like?

An optimal sales solution saves you one thing above all: work - and thus valuable time.

Forget about tedious Excel lists and use the extensive sorting, filtering and management functions of our databases - so that you can concentrate on the essentials: Your new customers.

How can I use the company addresses?

You can use the company addresses from our company database for your own company for an unlimited period of time - even after the license or update period of 12 months has expired (see License & Terms of Use).

If you would like to acquire new customers, you can export the addresses for your direct mailings at any time in various formats and thus use them, for example, for serial printing of cover letters.

No printer? No problem! Simply use our lettershop service. You deliver us the cover letter or print product (flyers, brochures) in pdf or Word format. We take care of the rest - from printing to franking to dispatch.

We will be happy to prepare an individual offer for you. You can reach us here.

How do I select my target group?

With our search function, you can search the company database for a variety of characteristics.

A good starting point is the keyword search in the company name. In addition, for a large number of company entries, one or more tags are available that locate the company thematically.

Further information on the functions and scope of our company database can be found here.

How many companies are there in Germany?

Our 2022 company database currently lists over 3 million companies of all legal forms from Germany, which is in line with data from the Federal Statistical Office in Wiesbaden.

How do I find potential customers?

You can find potential customers in our company database on a keyword or topic basis via the tags/topics included. Select the appropriate geographical region for your case beforehand to limit the number of search results.

How can I export the company addresses and contact details?

Various formats such as .csv, .xls, .json are available for data export.

How much do B2B company addresses cost per piece?

Usually, company addresses for direct marketing cost from 10 cents to about 35 cents per piece. If the address data is to be enriched with further features, the prices per data record can also exceed €1 per address.

Address databases in the subscription model usually cost several thousand euros per year, up to €6,000 p.a. and are limited to several thousand or a few tens of thousands of addresses.

Our Company Database sees itself as a cost-effective alternative to established offers - and this already starting from 549,- € p.a.

Find more information and prices here .

How often is the company database updated?

Due to a change in the law as of 01.08.2022, access to commercial register data by service providers such as us is no longer possible. Updating the data of the company database can therefore no longer be carried out technically.


An alternative to the previous company database is currently being implemented. However, it will only contain a fraction of the existing 3+ million German companies, as it will be based on the company websites themselves.

We will continue to be able to identify new start-ups in the future - provided there is a (discoverable) website - by means of our crawlers.


Does the contract automatically renew at the end of the contract period?

No. Unlike other providers, our licenses or contracts do not renew automatically. If you want to continue to benefit from current data in the future, you can extend your license in the user account at any time or switch to a team variant.

What is the difference between the product variants?

The difference between the individual product variants is primarily in the number of possible users. We offer you a cost-effective entry with the single-user license (Basic).

If your needs change or if you want to have database access with several people in a team, you can opt for a Team (Professional) license. For agencies we offer the Agency license.

All prices and features can be found here.

How do I renew my license?

In the customer area ("My account") you have the possibility to extend your license or to upgrade to a team version.

Can I test the database in a demo version?

Yes. We offer you the possibility to test our database free of charge in a 7-day test phase with reduced data volume. To do this, first register at and create a user account there. We will then send you an e-mail with information on how to access the demo version. There is no automatic booking or renewal.

Is the access to your databases also available in a bundle?

Yes. Especially for startups & founders, but also for all other customer groups, we offer our media & PR database together with the company database also in a bundle with up to 27% discount compared to single purchase. Click here for the bundle offers.

Where can I redeem my voucher code?

You have received a voucher code from us or one of our sales partners? To redeem a voucher code, enter the code under point 4 in our shop. Price and duration will be adjusted automatically.

Can I export the data for my CRM or use it in SalesHub or Salesforce?

Yes. The data can be exported for Outlook or your CRM.
