Why we created Geeftz?

We've created Geeftz, because we always had trouble keeping up with Valentine's, Birthdays and all sorts of events that require to bring a present. As many busy young adults have experienced, sometimes the choice online is too overwhelming, and finding the time to go look for a present is hard. So we've come up with a solution that simplifies the whole process, while preserving the spirit of gift-giving.

Why Kickstarter?

The initial app for iOS is in beta testing and will soon be sent to Apple for approval.

We chose to go on Kickstarter, before launching the app, for the following reasons:

  • we need funds to port the app on android etc.
  • to order the inventory we need to start shipping
  • to start hiring people on every continent
  • to have your feedback!
  • to help you find awesome presents for Christmas

The app will be available free of charge.

Awesome features

No brain freeze!

Our geeftz are preselected to suit the person of your choice, based on their personality, gender, age, etc. as well as how you relate to them (colleague, friend, family,...) and your budget. This greatly reduces the time and energy you need to find the perfect gift. Besides, only awesome gifts are allowed in our database and you can rely on our make-'em-smile guarantee™.

Perfect packaging

Type your wishes on the app or leave it blank and write them yourself if you want to receive the gift at your own address. Everything comes neatly packaged with a beautiful card.

Synchronize your calendars

Geeftz can get the your friends' data directly from your social media accounts, so you can access hundreds of friends right out of the box. All relevant events are sorted and organized and you can be reminded right when needed.

Late charging

No need to max out on your credit card. Geeftz charges you as late as necessary, so that you have ample time to change your mind. This way you can prepare all events for the upcoming year, in just a half hour.

Late cancellation

Because we don't charge you immediately, you can change your mind long after choosing the gift. Simply delete the order while its status is not fulfilled or shipped and y

Let Geeftz find the address

If you don't know your friend's address, Geeftz can look for it. If it doesn't find it two weeks before shipping, the address will be switched to your own and you will be notified. You can still enter it yourself or cancel the order.

Group Geeftz!

Group Geeftz will enable you to offer something really extravagant by tapping on your social network. Kind of like Kickstarter!

Wishlists

Receiving something disappointing sucks. Wishlists helps your friends offer you what you really want and likewise.

Risks and challenges

Challgenges about this campaign

Our backers will receive a wish list and/or will have their product featured in the app. The risks are pretty low. We have built a database presents, so building a shopping list for will be quite straight forward. Adding your product to the database will also be simple. The main issue here is time. We want you to receive your christmas shopping list as soon as possible (i.e. before december 15), so a huge number of backers 10000+ could be pose some issues, but this can be solved with additional ressources.

Challenges about the app

Logistics

Time
Our goal is to deliver the app on Apple store before February 2015. The app is mostly ready however group Geeftz and wish lists are not yet implemented. This should not pose a major challenge and can be added in a later version.

Critical mass
To make Geeftz financially viable, we need to reach as many users as possible. With a mere 1000 users offering 10 gifts per year, we believe that we can make the service available to one major region (USA, EU).

Our team has a wide background spanning across IT, engineering, finance etc. and many different regions: EU, Switzerland, US and Japan. We have invested a lot of time and energy testing and thinking this through and we are dedicated to bringing the you best service possible.

Feedback
Give us your feedback about features you want, or suggestions so that we can include them and make Geeftz even better.
