Chip'n Ship Terms and Conditions

We will keep this simple, readable, and easily understandable as best as we can.

Definition of Terms

Chip'n Ship

A crowdshopping website that enables users to create shopping wishes and help lighten the burden of paying it by letting other users chip in. Once a wish has been granted, Chip'n Ship automates the ordering process.

Chip'n Ship does not provide money directly to its users. If anyone is due refunds, it will be credited to them in form of Chip'n Ship Credits which they can use to chip in to wishes, be it their own or not.

Wish
This is what users linking us to the product they wish to buy and providing a reason why pitchers should chip in to that wish.
Wisher
This is the term used to define the user who owns a wish.
Pitcher
This is the term used to define a user who chips in to at least one wish.
Chip In
n. The total amount of money a pitcher added to a wish.
v. The act of giving, adding or pitching in to a wish.
Credits
These may be used to chip in to wishes. It can come from any of the following:
  1. Excess Chip Ins - If the total amount of chip ins is greater than the final price of the wish, any excess will go to the wishers credits.
  2. Expired Wish - Wishes that expires and did not get 100% completed returns chips to its pitchers as credits.
Third Party Service Providers

We use third party services for shopping and payment namely:

  1. Amazon - our primary source of shopping products. We used their API to give you list of products through our Amazon Quick Search tool. Once a wish has been granted, we complete the order process to Amazon which in turn takes care of shipping the product to the intended recipient as indicated in the wish.
  2. Stripe - our primary method of payment when pitchers chip in using credit card.
