About Pie VAT ‑ Tax Free Shopping
NOTE: You must have an account with Pie VAT before you can use this Shopify app. To do so, please contact us (in the support section).
Pie VAT is the first and only fully digital VAT refund (tax free shopping) solution in the marketplace. We help merchants and tourists facilitate their VAT refund for purchases made. No more waiting in lines at the airport. No more keeping track of countless paper forms. No more high fees. Instead, with Pie, you get:
- Transparency on all orders and refund requests
- Higher refund rates (much lower fees)
- Fully digital solution (mobile app for tourists)
For merchants, the our Shopify app extends Pie's native capabilities into an easy to use extension. After a tourist places an order and asks for a VAT refund, simply tap on the Pie VAT app, and a Pie refund will be generated automatically with all of the purchase information pre-populated. Ask the tourist to download the Pie VAT app and scan the shown QR code, or ask for their email and send them a Claim email. That's it!
Later on, when the refund is processed, Pie will automatically update your order in Shopify with a tag showing it was a Pie VAT refund. Stores will be able to keep track of transactions and VAT refund orders all through the Shopify dashboard - no need for multiple data sources.
Lastly, Pie is 100% free to use for merchants and with each refund, we share a portion of the refund amount with you, the store!
