Has your best friend been eyeing that new Microsoft Slate or the iPad Mini? Do you really, really want to get it for him or her this Christmas? But what about all your other friends and family members, don’t they deserve something special as well? And isn’t that going to cost you’re an entire months paycheck?
Instead of disappointing that special someone everyone loves, Shareagift helps you group together to get that Mauve bag for the girlfriend, iPad Mini for the techie in your life or Prima Cinema for the one that has to be the first to see everything. Essentially a Kickstarter for gifts, Shareagift lets you invite others to contribute toward a gift and collects the money to get that must-have gift.
You start by setting up an account, connecting your PayPal information – because it offers the largest international inclusion option, which is great in our opinion – and then have your friends contribute via Debit, Credit or PayPal. Even if you don’t reach the goal amount needed you still can withdraw the funds or refund everyone pooled.
The beautiful site delivers what is exactly expected. A simple to use and smartly put together web app to build a gift page so your friends can chip in for a purchase. Shareagift makes its money by taking a cut from the donations, so goals should be set slightly higher to accommodate the pinch.
