Based in Germany, Real Markt is an online shopping website where users can shop for a multitude of items and groceries. Even though it is first and foremost an e-commerce website, Real Markt still has brick-and-mortar stores located in various countries in Europe. Real Markt is also available for mobile devices through their mobile application.
The Real Markt website is exclusive only for people living in Germany. So, if you live outside of Germany, you will not be able to access the Real Markt. You can’t purchase items or even place orders as you need a German IP to do anything. The best way to bypass this restriction is to use a Real Markt proxy and change your non-German IP address to a German IP address.
Real Markt proxies work by shielding your IP address from the internet. Any website you visit, including Real Markt, will only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server you’re using. Your own IP address will be hidden making it simple to deceive Real Markt into thinking that you actually live in Germany. Additionally, a Real Markt proxy will also keep you safe whenever you browse online and protect your online identity similar to a vpn.
For geo-targeting, the best Real Markt proxies to use would be residential proxies as these types of proxies utilize residential IPs from actual devices. This means that, whenever you change your IP to a German IP, Real Markt’s web server would completely think that you’re a genuine user from Germany. Data center proxies, although faster than residential proxies, aren’t secure enough for this type of work. It’s still a good second choice but you may be detected by Real Markt as someone who’s using a proxy and get subsequently banned.
Let’s set up a Real Market proxy server.
Note: Make sure that the web browser you’re using for Real Market is set to automatically copy your computer’s proxy settings. Google Chrome automatically does this, so it’s recommended to use it.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
To set up a Real Markt proxy server for your mobile device, simply change your phone’s proxy settings. The Real Markt mobile app will automatically copy your phone’s proxy settings whenever you use it. Here’s a thorough guide for Android and another one for iPhone.
Congratulations! You have now finished configuring a Real Markt proxy server. Note that the first time you visit it, there will be a pop up asking for your login credentials.
