We met the lovely Laxmi Hariharan at the Silicon Drinkabout event a few Fridays ago and introduced her to Shareagift. She liked the site so much she included us in her series on startups, and we were absolutely delighted. So thanks to 3beards for kindly hosting us for the event, and thank you Laxmi for your interest and support 🙂
Are you an online store or an e-commerce site?
Did you know that Shareagift has a social plugin that lets you offer Group Buying on your own site to increase sales?
Yep, we know it’s a bit dry for a Friday morning but we recently realised that, although we’ve now got a great and loyal following of people using Shareagift.com, not many of them know about the Shareagift plugin. So here’s a little info.
Following a bunch of requests from online retailers after we launched the site, we built the Shareagift plugin to allow your customers to group buy products from your own website.
How can I use it on my site?
You can either:
- Add Group Gift button to your site – this requires absolutely minimal development and can be integrated in just 1 day
- Fully Customised Branded Solution – this is where we tailor a white label solution so the entire group gifting process happens on your site
How does it work?
- Customers choose a product from your site to Group Buy
- They create a Gift Page for the item and share with their friends online
- Friends chip in via credit / debit card or PayPal
- Customer uses the collected funds to buy the product from your site
How does this add value to my business?
- Increase sales of higher value items
- Spread your brand across your customers social networks
- Help you facilitate sales from customers wish lists

I know, I know, it’s not even Halloween yet, but we’re already excited as we’re just starting to see the first few Shareagift Pages created by some of you super-organised peeps planning ahead for Christmas!
Company Shareagift Pages for Christmas
The Actors Touring Company have already started a Shareagift Page for their company Christmas Stocking! They need to buy an expensive piece of filming equipment so they can filem their tours in 2013 and decided Shareagift would be the perfect way to do it. Good luck guys, we hope you get all the funds you need :).
Friends & Family Sharegift Pages for Christmas
The lovely Tara, just created her Shareagift Page for a brand new Macbook Pro laptop computer from her family as a way for her family and friends to afford the gift she really wants – and she’s already collected $200 towards it!
School & Teachers Shareagift Pages for Christmas
Last year we had an amazing response from people setting up Shareagift Pages to collect from parents towards class gifts for teachers. The most popular items we noticed were gift vouchers – for major stores or spas, so the teachers could choose for themselves. We haven’t seen any pop up for this Christmas yet, but we’re keeping an eye out 😉
The beauty about Shareagift is that you can use it collect money for absolutely anything – from that perfect gift, to charity fundraising, to sharing the cost of a group trip – so what are we waiting for – Christmas is only 61 days away!
