A big day today for the ATP Team as we launch our first in-house website project, www.shareagift.com. Shareagift is a website that enables groups of people to come together to pool their money and buy really great gifts for their mutual friends. The site aims to revolutionise the online gift market and make unwanted gifts a thing of the past by helping people share the cost of gifts so the recipient receives that coveted item they really want.
Shareagift works by a primary gift organizer creating a webpage, or ‘Gift Page’, on the site – personalised with photos and information about the recipient, occasion and selected gift – and shares it by email or Facebook Send with the recipients’ family and friends to contribute. Contributions can be made by PayPal, credit or debit card, after which the organizer then collects the money and buys the gift. The beauty of the sit is that it can be used to buy absolutely any gift from anywhere – whether it’s online, offline, in a store, gallery, showroom, anything – as funds can be used directly online or transferred to spend as cash.
Today we launch the site to the public today in beta, and through it we hope to transform the gifting process process for the consumer – making buying gifts sociable, shareable and affordable – and developing a new approach to social gifting, relieving the time pressures, budget constraints, and geographical disparity of those wanting to get involved, helping people buy really great gifts for their friends.
