CleverGift’s breakthrough innovation was in creating the consumer expectation for what social and digital gifting experiences between friends & family should be. By combining the personalisation of gifting with the convenience of mobile shopping and eDelivery, CleverGift makes buying gifts simpler and more thoughtful for family & friends, while driving significant business value for retailers. 

With a growing trend towards last minute gifting, CleverGift makes it possible for retailers to sell online to consumers around the world past delivery cut-off dates, by allowing these consumers to personally deliver their online purchased gifts to their family and friends instantly by WhatsApp, SMS, Facebook Messenger or email.

Their family & friends can then accept their gift, select colour, style and size, or easily exchange the gift virtually, before having it physically delivered to the address of their choosing. Not only does the CleverGift Platform drive more online sales, but eGifting also serves to eliminate the cost of returns and exchanges and CleverGift is a clever way of acquiring the Gifter's friends & family as new customers for the retailer, not just for Christmas, but also by powering an email reminder service for their friends & family birthday's, anniversaries and other personal occasions throughout the year.
