  • My shop was verified but now it says unverified. Why?
    1. Our verification standards will improve over time. Your documents may no longer meet the standards of verification. Verification of user identity is important especially for shop owners so customers are treated fairly an feel confident of their transaction being delivered.

    If you become unverified you will need to upload new documents. You can speak with support directly from your app for additional help.

  • Are my purchases insured and by who?
    1. Yes, by your chosen shipping partner such as FedEx or UPS, but only for the declared value of the purchased item. Our shipping partners do not provide cargo liability or all-risk insurance.

    The Declared Value for Carriage of any Package represents maximum liability in connection with a shipment of that Package, including but not limited to, any loss, damage, delay, mis-delivery, any failure to provide information, or mis-delivery of information relating to the Shipment.

    Exposure to and risk of any loss in excess of the Declared Value for Carriage is assumed by the Sender.

  • WHAT IS PIGEE

  • What is the Pigee mobile Application?

    The Pigee mobile application allows customers to conveniently send home items purchased whilst in a real-world shop.

    This is ideal for tourists who purchase items in markets whilst on their travels but would struggle to fit the items in their suitcase.

    The inconvenience of arranging shipping for purchases on the fly is typically too daunting.  Pigee not only arranges and tracks your shipping, but it also gives you a live price before you buy.

    This is also suitable for expatriates who wish to send for items from their home country.

    Pigee is more convenient and typically cheaper than the direct cost of shipping.

  • How it works

    If a seller has a Pigee account, they can list their items for sale either on the fly as requested by a customer or in advance. This is done by taking a photo of the item and noting the key information such as name, size, value, and weight.

    A customer can use their Pigee app to scan the unique QR code of the shop seller to link directly to the sellers’ offerings.

    Once a customer has chosen the items they wish to ship, the app will give them a live cost price including shipping and insurance in the home currency of the user. The value of the purchased item can be paid for in cash or via the app’s wallet.

    Once the transaction is agreed, the seller will securely package the item/s and attach the printed shipping label or written Unique identifier. The parcel will either be collected by the shipping company or delivered to a local delivery point by the seller.

    A tracking number will be issued as soon as the transaction takes place. Both parties will be able to track the parcel each step of the journey to its destination.

    If a customer wishes to reorder items from the same seller once home. They can do so from anywhere in the world via the app.

  • Why Pigee
    • Pigee creates convenience and removes limits.
    • Pigee connects those excluded from the global commerce market.
    • Pigee increases sales that were previously limited to a customer’s carry-on space.
    • Pigee multiplies the income of market sellers by giving them return customers and marketing their offerings to a wider audience.
    • Pigee Creates a reseller market for unique hard to find items from around the world.
  • PACKAGING

  • Bundled Packaging

    When you make an order, all items are placed into one package to reduce the cost of shipping. If the items are awkward sizes or too large, items can be separated into separate orders. This will generate more than one tracking number and a separate shipping cost.

  • Secure packaging

    Before you ship any item, make sure your item is packaged properly.

    This includes sturdy and padded packing that prevents items from becoming damaged in transit.

  • COUNTERFEITING AND PIRACY POLICY

  • What is counterfeiting and piracy?

    The terms “piracy” and “counterfeiting” of goods refer to manufacturing, distributing and selling inferior copies of products which have been made without the permission of the intellectual property rights holder in the said goods. Inferior copies of goods are intended to appear similar to that of the original product and to be passed off as genuine items. However, the scope of goods differs in both violations. Piracy is the sale of unauthorised copies of usually copyrighted information such as music, films, television show etc. and counterfeiting refers to the selling of an inferior copy of a product like clothing items, bags etc. As these unauthorised inferior copies are circulated in the market, they hamper its original creator in more than one way.  It not only tarnishes the name of the creator but also harms them monetarily.

    Piracy and counterfeiting are two concepts, which are generally used to indicate intellectual property rights violations. Under both these violations, certain acts are carried out without the consent of the rights’ holder. Pirated and counterfeit products have profoundly contributed to intellectual property theft around the world. Governments across many countries along with international organisations like the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) have been working tirelessly to fight against these violations and to strive for economic independence and progression. Counterfeit and pirated products cover virtually all areas of consumer goods, including pharmaceuticals, food, books, films, music, compact disc, and textile material, and footwear, among others.

    The term ‘piracy’ is a colloquially used word for copyright infringement. It refers to an unauthorised reproduction or theft of someone’s creative work for financial gain. This illegal use results in violation of rights of copyright holder granted to them by law. Individuals and companies who develop new works ensure that they can profit from their creation; therefore, they register for copyright protection. The owner of the copyright may grant permission to other parties to use their work by giving them a license or assignment and charging a fee. However, there are several instances where someone may engage in use/reproduction/distribution/sale of copyrighted work without the creator’s permission and engage in copyright infringement. It is important to note that the ethos of copyright law is to protect the value of the creative work of a creator. When a person makes an unauthorised copy of someone’s original work, they are taking something of value from the owner without their permission, which is just like taking something tangible from a person without their consent like a pen, car, bag.

    This crime represents as much as 2.5 % of world trade, or USD 461 billion. Thus, rights holders, governments and the formal economy as a whole are suffering huge losses each year, while the criminal networks that are behind the trade profit enormously.

    The situation in the EU is even worse: counterfeited and pirated products account for about 5 % of imports to the EU. Thus the relative impact of counterfeiting is twice as high for the developed economies of the EU as it is for the world as a whole.

    But the damage goes beyond the immediate impact of one and another loss. Counterfeiting and piracy are a threat to sustainable business models based on intellectual property and patenting, because they also discourage innovation and work against the economic growth that is based in it.

  • Our commitment

    The mission statement of Pigee is to ‘connect those excluded from the global commerce market’. This also means protecting the sanctity of the market. Whilst the world’s population and markets are growing, we want to play our part in keeping the global commerce market fair for everyone.

    All users are able to report items that should not be sold via the Pigee marketplace. This includes counterfeit products that breach the IP of those who have created the originals.

  • Action against breaches

    Pigee will follow its internal policy to report such items and to suspend the accounts of those who try to manufacture, sell, or ship them using our platform.

  • COMMUNICATION

  • Currency

    Currency is set to your base currency. This can be set by you but is usually the base currency of your payment card or account. Such as £GBP if you are in the UK or Shillings if you are in Kenya.

    Whilst a seller will list their items in their own local currency you will each only see payments amounts in your own local currency. This will save you reaching for a calculator.

  • Language

    We want to open the world up to uninhibited communication. When you type in your chat window or describe an item that you list, it will be in your own language. When the person you are communicating with reads, it will be in their own language.

    You can however turn off auto translate if you wish.

  • Time

    There is nothing worse than turning up to a shop when it is closed or receiving messages when you are sleeping. So, business opening times along with all other time stamps are set to the user’s local time.
