What People Say About Us

一直以來在 Pinkoi 上接了許多來自不同國家的訂單,常因訊息往來逐漸瞭解對方的需求,發現其他國家的消費習慣與在台灣接觸的客群不同,進而思考如何在台灣以外的市場操作與經營品牌。原來 Pinkoi 是我們與外國客人串連的一道很重要的門。

Translation: It's amazing getting many orders from different countries on Pinkoi; we connect with customers from various cultures, and understand what they really need. Running our business on Pinkoi inspires us to think outside the box, and develops a better branding strategy for international markets. Pinkoi brings us new possibilities and opportunities, and bridges our products to the world.

印花樂 Designer from Taiwan Pinkoi.com/inblooom

回想起第一次在後台裏看見來自別的國家的訂單,覺得很神奇且不可思議!原來,設計沒有國界,別的國家的人也會喜歡我的作品,甚至能真正的透過購買來支持!因為有 Pinkoi 讓我能克服語言以及金流的障礙,把設計順利銷售到其他的國家!直到今日,依然陸續的收到更多沒有接觸過的國家的訂單,每一次還是非常激動與感謝!p.s. 前幾天收到丹麥的訂單喔

Translation: I still remember the excitement when I first got an order from another country, it was from someone who speaks a completely different language. That made me realize that design truly has no boundaries and you never know who’s going to love your work. Pinkoi offers tremendous help when it comes to independent designers such as myself; I’m able to overcome language barriers and payment issues, and eventually selling my designs around the world. And now, I'm getting orders from countries I’ve never visited every single day, which makes me truly grateful for being in the community. P.s Just got an order from Denmark!

Translation: It is because of Pinkoi that I can reach international customers (especially Asian customers) and grow a fan base that really loves my brand. I am really grateful to be working with Pinkoi. They are extremely supportive of seller-designers, helping us with everything from running a business on the platform to communicating with international customers. I think Pinkoi is a friendly and inviting community for designers, makers and crafters.

KATJI Designer from Thailand Pinkoi.com/katji

海外に販売することは初めてでわからないことが多かったですが、スタッフの方が色々とサポートしていただき、今では台湾と香港から多くのご注文をいただいており作品の制作に追われております。最初のオーダーは何が何だかわからず発送するまでに2週間もかかってしまいましたがそれもいい経験でした。これから新作などを出していきたいと思いますのでよろしくお願いします。

Translation: My first experience as a Japanese seller on Pinkoi is a wonderful one! At first, I was frustrated by the process of shipping my products overseas, but thanks to the support Pinkoi has provided me with, I was able to breeze through the process without a problem. Since then, I began to receive orders from Taiwan and Hong Kong, making my life as an online seller busier than ever! Selling on Pinkoi is a fantastic experience regardless of the time it took me to familiarize with the platform! In the future, I will continue to create more products that buyers will both love and enjoy!

Y.147 YUKI Designer from Japan Pinkoi.com/y147

Pinkoi 讓我認識到不同市場的需求,不同客群的喜好,和不同國家的人交流等等,令我畢生難忘。同時,Pinkoi 團隊還會不定期發送電郵介紹新資訊、教學等,不厭其煩地指導和提醒設計師們,讓我們做得更好!最近,最意想不到的,我收到一張來自瑞士的訂單!我學會設法運用最低郵費成本,將商品送到客人手上。Pinkoi 一直默默耕耘,近至亞洲遠至歐洲都開始有人關注。Pinkoi 團隊的用心及堅持,我相信各設計師們都感受至深!

Translation: It's a wonderful experience to connect with customers from different markets, interests and culture through Pinkoi. As a seller on Pinkoi, I appreciate their commitment to make our selling experience better by constantly sharing with us tutorials and other business know-hows. Recently, I got an order from Switzerland and learned how to ship to foreign countries with the lowest shipping possible. Pinkoi has been working hard; and in turn, their dedication has drew attention from Asia and even as far as Europe. I believe every designer in the community can definitely feel the passion and devotion of Pinkoi!

Shimo Designer from Hong Kong Pinkoi.com/dotsormore

有一次購買收到的不單止是貨品,還有賣家送上的小書籤和明信片,感覺就像收到老朋友在外地寄來的心意和祝福一樣溫暖。

Translation: The expereince of placing an order on Pinkoi is just like getting a heart-warming greeting and blessing from an old friend in long distance.

Tiff. Chou Member from United States

Pay-easyが使えるのでクレジットカードを登録せずに海外の商品を購入できること。サイトが日本語に翻訳され、日本への送料も明瞭に表記されていること。また、海外のアーティストの作品がとにかく豊富!毎日新着商品をチェックするのが楽しいです。

Translation: Pinkoi provides easy payment options in Japan, e.g. Pay-easy, to allow you buy without registering credit card first. The site is completely in Japanese and has clear shipping to Japan. I really enjoy browsing all the creative design products from designers aboard on Pinkoi every day.

去旅行很喜欢去逛当地的创意市集,那是最能够从不同的产品中感受这个地方最纯粹的人文气息!Pinkoi能够让我足不出户买遍全世界的好设计,感觉自己去了好多个国家唷~

Pinkoi really enables me to discover and buy great original designs around the world without even stepping out of my door. It feels like I have been traveling to many countries through Pinkoi.
