App Lets Gift Givers Scan and Send
Jifiti lets users scan product barcodes and instantly send a voucher for those items to friends in other locations.
Shoppers at participating brick-and-mortar stores – currently including Barnes & Noble, Sears and The Body Shop – who see something they think a friend would like can use the app to scan its barcode. They then choose the friend they want to send it to from their contacts and a voucher is created and delivered to them. Once the recipient has downloaded the Jifiti app, they can arrive in their local branch and pick up the item for free. Otherwise – if the option is available – they can view the gift on the stores website and get it delivered. The platform also allows groups of friends to create a joint Jifiti gift and users can set up a wish list for others to see. The app is available for free on both the App Store and Google Play.
Jifiti combines the convenience of giving a digital gift card with the thoughtfulness of personally selecting an item to give, even when deadlines are tight or recipients live on the other side of the country.
