US based users beware
My kids love the pigzbe app and the idea of earning Wollo.
However, this quickly broke down and became a nightmare when I discovered that the WOLLO currency is near impossible to purchase if you are located in the United States.
I reached out to Pigzbe's support and got little to no help. I fact after a few email exchanges I was ignored. Granted I was frustrated and my tone was terse I’m sure but that’s not how you effectively manage an upset customer.
The app tells you to use one of their "partner exchanges," but you can only use ONE of the 6 or 7 exchanges if you live in the US. Even then, you cannot just buy WOLLO; you have to buy XLM and then use that XLM to buy WOLLO.
Adding insult to injury, I went to buy $100 of XLM from the StellarX exchange, and they make you go to Changely AKA Simplex to make the purchase. They "claim" they disclose fee's charged between 3% and 8%, but I never saw that.
Not only that, but my $100 when transferred to my StellarX Wallet was only worth $79,27 within 8-12 seconds I LOST $20! Moving it to WOLLO in the Pigzbe app, and I'm showing I have basically $59USD of WOLLO. I know crypto is a risk, and rates fluctuate hourly. But to start with $100 (or even $90 after fees) and within hours have that cut to almost 50% is a bit ridiculous and something which should be better communicated or worked out.
If you're reading this and thinking about buying the system WAIT until they know how to support US customers fully. What grinds me, even more, is when I pledged to this Kickstarter, none of this was disclosed, and I should have taken the refund when they offered it early on.
The pigzbe piggy wallet will not pair with my device. I have tried several times. I was a kick starter backers and I have been frustrated with this product from the beginning.The product was delayed for close to a year after the projected date and there was no disclosure in the kick starter that you would have to pair it with a digital currency. Aside from all that I can’t even get it to pair with my device. I am super frustrated. In my contact with the company they have been less than responsive and I don’t imagine this situation is going to be any different. I’d like to trash the whole thing but I’m already in over $100
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
