Imagine all the great stuff about group gift giving â€“ the cost sharing, the message â€œwe careâ€ thoughtfulness, the pooling of funds so you can give something bigger and better â€“ without the pain of collecting cash, laboring over a gift choice or schlepping to a store. Itâ€™s all precisely why eDivvy was invented. eDivvy.com makes it a snap for friends, family, business associates â€“ any kind of group â€“ to choose and split the cost of a gift.
eDivvy.com is easy to use. The organizer of the group gift creates their group gift event by choosing the occasion and an invitation design to match. They customize their invite information and then select the product(s) they want to group gift. After a few more simple customizations, they add the email addresses of those they wish to invite to group gift and send. eDivvy.com takes over from there. Once each e-mail recipient receives the email on behalf of the organizer, they can choose how much they want to contribute, and charges that amount to a major credit card through eDivvyâ€™s highly secure process. Once the group gift is fully funded, eDivvy.com ensures the gift is shipped directly to the recipient from the retailer from which it was chosen. All of those who contributed to the gift can also sign a virtual gift card for the recipient. The organizer can check in throughout the process, see who has contributed and the remaining amount needed to purchase the gift, and send gentle reminders if need be.
