GiftCards.com recently agreed to acquire Giftly, an app and website that allows users to buy and deliver digital gifts … and we couldn’t be more excited!
The acquisition was picked up in various local and national media outlets, but this goes so much deeper than an opportunity for press. In fact, we view this as the next step towards revolutionizing the way that consumers gift.
This marriage of GiftCards.com, the leading website for gift cards, and Giftly, the leading mobile app for gifting, will prove to be a forward-thinking step within the gifting industry.
Our CEO Jason Wolfe said, “Digital and mobile gifting is the future of the industry and we have invested heavily in patenting technologies in this space. The Giftly acquisition is a logical and exciting step into building the industry’s future with an established partner in the fast-growing m-commerce space.”
Of the acquisition, Giftly CEO Timothy Bentley said, “This is an exciting opportunity for Giftly. By partnering with GiftCards.com, we can combine the strengths of a traditional gift card player with the innovative platform that Giftly has developed.”
We can’t wait to see the combination in action.
Giftly will be rolled into our GiftCards.com operations, but will maintain its offices in San Francisco, CA.
