Jean-Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (born 23 March 1989) is a German-born Cameroonian footballer who plays for 1. FSV Mainz 05 as a striker.

Born in Hamburg, he made his first appearance as a Hamburger SV player in a Bundesliga match on 11 August 2007, being sent on as a substitute in the 69th minute against Hannover 96.

On 18 May 2011, he signed a three-year contract with Bundesliga side 1. FSV Mainz 05 on a free transfer from Hamburg. Choupo-Moting enjoyed a successful debut season with the club, scoring ten times in the Bundesliga.

However, he missed most of the 2012–13 season through injury and was therefore unable to make an impact.

On 11 May 2010, Choupo-Moting earned his first call-up for the Cameroon national football team.
