Quien paga mis productos?
An order is activated only at the time of online payment by the buyer, this means that the producer will never receive an order if the system has not collected payment for the first time.
Once payment is received, the producer will systematically receive an SMS and/or an email informing him of the new order. You will also receive in your account a first transfer (50% of the total invoice amount *), essential to ensure part of the transportation costs (packaging, transportation to the port or airport of shipment, among others).
Once the products have been shipped and the responsibility has been transferred with our logistics partner, a second transfer is made to the producer’s account, that is, 30% of the invoice. Upon clearance of the goods, the producer will have received 80% of the transaction price, the remaining 20% remains in guarantee until the goods are validated by the buyer.
Since it takes an average of 48 hours for international transactions to be visible in a bank account, our advertisements are sent as a guarantee of the ongoing operation.
Where does my money go?
Under the French regulation on the collection of money on behalf of third parties, we do not collect your money in the POP Fresh bank account, the sums go directly to an escrow account to be later distributed to producers and related services contracted for the transaction.
How are my purchases dispatched?
Our logistics partners can send your purchases to the address you confirm. Your products will be sent to the delivery point indicated in the contract.
Should I take care of the import?

Who receives my purchases?
To receptions in Europe, to guarantee a transaction and protect producers, as well as buyers, POP Fresh does a first technical control at his partner, Dunfresh (cold stores), in the North of France.

Who is responsible for my purchases?
The goods must be insured by the buyer at the time of purchase (service included in our offer of related services), however, the technical control performed by our partner serves precisely to safeguard the responsibilities of all the actors involved in the transaction.

What happens if my products do not arrive in good condition?
There is insurance that covers part of the damage. However, one of our missions as a trusted third party is to seek a friendly solution among the actors involved in the transaction.
