Bringing a better gifting experience to an Instagram-focused business.
Like many successful e-commerce business, Giftspawt has a large Instagram following. They wanted to leverage this community by opening up a new gifting channel by giving their customers the ability to send a gift to an Instagram account.
As they were already using our Giftship app to handle gift message collection and multiple address shipping, so they got in touch to see if we could add on this custom extension.
We built a custom version of Giftship to allow for this integration, which gives their users the ability to send a gift to an Instagram account handle, which is pre-registered in their database of customer addresses. When checking out, a customer can enter in an Instagram handle, and if the handle exists in the database, the customer can then add this instead of a shipping address to the order.
