Gifting in groups is practical and advantageous. It is usually preferred because it enables the gift givers to gift better and higher value gifts to the recipient, without being too heavy on individual pockets. It also saves people the trouble of having to think about individual gifts. Bigger the group, better the collective kitty.
But again, group gifting has never been hassle-free. Bigger the group more complicated is the process of coordinating and collecting the individual amounts to get the gift. It inevitably leads to someone shelling out more money on behalf of another and the awkward situation of having to follow up for the money to be returned (ask anyone who has taken the initiative of organizing one!).
Group gifting Made Easier
Woohoo’s Group Gifting feature aims to save one from such situations. It simplifies the whole process of pooling in and gifting to the intended recipient. With each individual pooing in his / her share directly, the whole situation of “who owes what and to whom” is avoided. This makes group gifting simple and hassle-free, with the recipient receiving the total amount put in by each of the individuals.
How Group Gifting Works
The steps involved are pretty simple. First, you “Create a Group Gift”, enter a few details and choose from the various e-gift card designs available (or even add your own photographs). Then you “Invite Friends & Family” by sharing the link via Whatsapp, email, SMS or social channels. The invited people can click on the link and put in their shares, along with their individual messages. Once everyone’s done contributing you can send the total amount in the kitty as an e-gift to the recipient. For a more detailed guidance, you could refer to the step-by-step guide for using the group gifting feature on Woohoo.in or the Woohoo app.
Benefits of an E-Gift
One of the best things about an e-gift is that the recipient can choose whatever he wants with the amount that he receives. With a Woohoo e-gift card the receiver could choose gift cards from the brands of his choice, such as Amazon, Myntra, Shoppers Stop, Dineout, Lakme and the like. Which means the range of options to choose from is wide – be it apparel, electronics, books, home furnishings, dining or salon services. So why limit them to a gift of your choice. Let them take their pick from a whole lot of things that you can offer with a gift card.
