1. What is a Giftly?
A Giftly is a new kind of gift. You can give a Giftly for any item or experience, at any place, for any amount, and send it instantly from your smartphone. Make a Giftly for dinner at a favorite restaurant, a sweater from a local boutique, or even ice cream at a nearby park. You'll be able to see where a recipient used it and what they got.
2. How does it work?
When you give a Giftly, you'll tell the recipient what you'd like them get and where you'd like them to get it and decide how much to gift them. We've created dozens of fun icons that you can use or you can use a photo of anything you'd like. The Giftly can be delivered via text, email or Facebook.
After you've sent a Giftly, you can see its status at any time in My Giftlys. You can see when they open it, where they used it, see what they got, and exchange messages.
As a recipient, after you open the Giftly, all you need to do is go and buy the intended gift at the place chosen by the gifter. You don't need to show anything to the merchant. After you buy your gift, use the iPhone app, mobile web app, or website to indicate that you've used the Giftly and we'll credit the gifted amount directly to your credit card or PayPal account.
3. I just received a Giftly. How do I use it?
