|Description||Social gift sending service|
DropGifts is a rapidly growing Internet start-up with operations in 28 countries. The platform integrates with Facebook to allow users to send gift cards through Facebook’s social network.
The DropGifts service is available online and through a mobile app. DropGifts reminds users about upcoming birthdays, holidays and other events listed on Facebook. Users can then choose a free or paid gift card from a variety of winning brands to send to their friends. The gift card is posted on the recipient’s Timeline and appears in the News Feed of both sender and recipient. Mutual friends of the sender and recipient can view the post and opt to chip in on the value of the gift card.
Recipients collect gift cards posted on their Timeline by clicking on a link provided in the Timeline post. After installing the DropGifts platform, the recipient selects the Wallet tab in the app and chooses the gift card to redeem. DropGifts gift cards can be redeemed online or in person, depending on the requirements of the retailer providing the card.
