JigoCity to Opt In to Group Buying Industry Code of Conduct
JigoCity Happy to See Industry Respond to Vendor Concerns
JigoCity, a daily deals website offering online discounts of up to 91% off local experiences, today announced its support for a Group Buying Industry Code of Conduct as put forth by Spreets and Cudo. Prior to its launch last year JigoCity implemented its own vendor pledge with the aim of protecting its vendors from some of the more unscrupulous behavior engaged in by some group buying sites. However, with the introduction of an industry-wide Code of Conduct, established Tier 2 players like JigoCity will be able to separate itself from big and small players alike who have tarnished the industry’s reputation.
The introduction of the Code of Conduct will also serve the best interests for the consumer as they will have a stable backbone to ensure they are protected against false and misleading advertisers who threaten the credibility of the industry.
“The lack of a code of conduct hurts the industry as a whole and we are appalled by the horror stories from vendors, often times regarding larger players who end up damaging their businesses rather than growing them,” said Chris Jones, General Manager of JigoCity. “We will continue to focus on delivering great deals to our customers, providing great service to our vendor partners and being responsive to the needs of our customers.”
JigoCity Daily Deals launched in 2010 as a suite of global, high quality daily deals websites that offer great discounts of up to 91% off the best local experiences while offering businesses a targeted marketing tool for attracting new customers. Founded by a group of global entrepreneurs, JigoCity is dedicated to delivering top daily group buying deals featuring shopping, beauty, entertainment and travel. JigoCity has offices in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, China, Brazil and Los Angeles and is growing.
