  • Once funds have been withdrawn from the Seller’s account, they cannot be re-credited
  • If for any reason an order is cancelled, the Seller’s revenues will be returned to the Buyer
  • Withdrawals are final and cannot be reversed.

Handling orders

  • The Seller must deliver their completed order within the time frame specified in their service description. Failure to do so will permit the Buyer to cancel the order and may adversely affect the Seller’s ratings.
  • The Seller’s ratings are calculated based on feedback received from Buyers, the number of orders completed/cancelled and delivery time frames met.
  • Both the Buyer and the Seller have the option to cancel an order by mutual agreement. This will have no negative effect on either party. If the Seller alone decides to cancel an order, this will have an adverse effect on their rating. The seller is not permitted to cancel an order without good cause.

  • Payments outside of megapigs for services offered on the site are not permitted. If the Buyer is asked to use an alternative method of payment, they must report it to megapigs’s Customer Support Team immediately
