- Yiftee enables its customers to send gifts via email, mobile, and social networks, which the recipients can collect from local merchants.
Yiftee (Weyenot, Inc.) lets consumers send thoughtful, unexpected gifts ($5-$200) among friends, family and colleagues quickly and easily via email, mobile and social networks. Yiftee gifts are real items (e.g. a latte, glass of wine, lunch, manicure, rose or boutique fashion item) that the recipients pick up using their smart phones and tablets at favorite local restaurants and shops, driving profitable business to local merchants. Gift givers use their mobile devices or the web to search by location from over 2 million local businesses, purchase gifts and "deliver" them via email, text or Facebook.
Unredeemed gifts can be exchanged, donated to charity or they will be credited back to the Yiftee giver's account after four weeks. Yiftee gifts do not pile up like gift cards. Merchants gain additional sales, foot traffic and a free mobile/web sales channel at no cost to them.
