AWKWARD! Collecting money for the group gift or get together?
You’re a super nice person. You want to organise one great gift from the gang – for the coach, baby gift, office gift or just collect money for the parent get together or bridal shower. But ugh! the pain of awkward reminders and always getting left short.
There’s a better way.
Two Sydney mums created a website that does the reminding, collecting and card for you online. It’s called GroupTogether.com and it’s been used by more than 40,000 Australians so far.
It’s so simple to use.
It takes 2 minutes to set up on the website. You can even do it on your phone when you’re waiting in the car queue. No downloading of apps necessary. Just go to www.GroupTogether.com.
To share the collection page, you can either add email addresses which lets GroupTogether invite friends and send reminders. Or, you can just copy and paste the link into your WhatsApp group, SMS, email or social.Friends get the link, pay safely online and add a personal message to the card. Done!
When the collection reaches the finish date you chose, GroupTogether transfers all the money to you and the printable card. They also offer e-gift vouchers so you can organise the whole story without getting out of bed (BEST!).“This is a no brainer!” and “Why didn’t someone think of this before” are the most common reviews
“This is a no brainer!” and “Why didn’t someone think of this before” are the most common reviews GroupTogether.com gets on Facebook.According to co-founder Ali Linz, mums learn about it when they get an online invitation to chip in for a teacher or coach gift.
Then they use it for 40th gifts, office gifts and baby gifts, even team gear and parent dinners.Using GroupTogether means that there’s never awkwardness about chasing people, or keeping track or receiving bank transfers with no name. There’s no pressure for someone to contribute. And the amounts they give are kept private. It’s easier and better for everyone.
