PRESS RELEASE -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Most beautiful and easiest Giftapart ever! Improved design, easier navigation, new built-in direct messaging, and enhanced event planner. Giftapart 2.0 is available on any browser app download.

SOMERVILLE, NJ, May 5, 2020 — Giftapart, the world’s first social ecommerce supermall, is launching Giftapart 2.0. Upgrades include improved and beautified design, easier navigation and user experience, introduction of Elegant Happenings, and full functional internal direct messaging (DM). Giftapart provides over 25,000,000 products from hundreds of America's most trusted and known stores.

As explained by Ben Crossman of Computer America: "Only on Giftapart can you get the gifts you want, in the order you want. Using Giftapart’s patent-pending system of crowdfunding, gift contributors simply purchase as many parts as they want. No need to fumble through pages and pages of items. And that means gift receivers always get first what they want the most. It’s genius and so easy to use."

“The gifting process sucked,” said Filipe Pedroso, founder and CEO of Giftapart, “That’s why we invented Giftapart. My daughters would have birthday parties and they’d get either stuff they didn’t want or a $20 gift card, many times to stores they didn’t even like. And when it was time to gift to their friends or even my relatives, it was a hassle having to guess what someone wanted, and looking for a gift was so time consuming. These problems don’t have to exist anymore thanks to Giftapart.”

“My family is in Russia,” added Liana Pedroso, co-founder and CAO, “And most of Filipe’s family lives in Portugal. During the holidays and birthdays, we were often sadden that there was no gift exchanging. The distance made it impractical and disconnected. So we wanted to make a gifting process that was easy, fast and fun, and created a system that has really perfected the gifting process. Now, we can share in gifting to our little nephews and nieces no matter where they live, and know that we are helping them get exactly what they want.”

“Let’s say you’re getting married and need to set up a gift registry. You really need a refrigerator but it costs $1,200. It’s unlikely that any one of your guests will pay that much. So you make a list, put the refrigerator on the list, and other items, like bed sheets, silverware, china, and the like. You use Giftapart, the only place in the world where you can control the precise order you get your gifts, so you place the refrigerator as item number one,” explained Filipe Pedroso, “Giftapart breaks up your refrigerator into affordable parts for your guests to buy. Your guests come to your gift list and can only contribute towards item number one, your refrigerator. They buy some parts, and leave you a social comment that is linked to the parts they buy. Before you know it, the refrigerator is purchased, and you’re getting all the things you really needed in the order you chose.”

“And this process is awesome for everyone,” said Liana Pedroso, “ The gift receiver always gets exactly what they want in the order they want. But the gift giver will actually thank the gift receiver, because there’s no easier and faster way to gift. You simply click on a link, select the parts to buy, and pay. That’s it. No time spent shopping, no guilt-filled gift card purchase, no guessing what to buy. The gift givers knows that they’re contributing to precisely what the gift receiver wants. And this whole process is super social and connective. After you buy the parts, you can leave a personalized message to the gift receiver. This touching message is forever linked to the parts that were purchased. It’s really what gifting is all about, the social connectivity, and it’s only on Giftapart.”

“We have improved the Giftapart experience with the 2.0 release,” commented Filipe Pedroso, “The design is so much more nicer to look at, and the mobile version has received a big boost in a simplified navigation experience. Plus now with Elegant Happenings, our users can truly create the most beautiful event notifications and invitations with Giftapart’s in-app full featured event planner. With so many options to choose from, Giftapart users can make events reflect their mood and personality. We can’t wait to see all the great events our users are going to make.”

Kevyn Jaremko, Director of Software Development, stated: “From day one, we've never stopped making Giftapart better.  Giftapart 2.0 has the best improvements we've made yet.  I'm especially proud of how much cleaner and more beautiful our UI has become. The Elegant Happenings, a new event planner category, are absolutely gorgeous. Users can now customize their special events, like weddings and birthdays, with their own custom homepage and invitation styling. And our users are going to love using the new DM feature.”

“Giftapart is the first platform to add DM functionality to ecommerce,” stated Liana Pedroso, “Giftapart users can send a direct message to their friends without leaving the Giftapart experience. This is awesome for party planning with your friends, chatting instantly with a retailer, or simply asking Giftapart a question. Our users are going to find their own fun ways of using the DM features, and we’re thrilled to be providing this feature.”

“There is simply no experience like Giftapart,” said Filipe Pedroso, “Only at Giftapart can you browse 25,000,000 products from hundreds of America’s most well-known and trusted stores, shop those products, chat about the products you see with others, prepare and send out a beautiful event invitation, make a wish list and gift list, get the gifts in the precise order you want, get notifications from stores about discounts, see your friends’ birthdays and events on a calendar, use the built-in full social media functionality, and send direct messages — all in one place!”

Giftapart can be used on any desktop or mobile browser. Apps are also available for free download and use on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Giftapart has established several COVID-19 assistance programs to help during the novel coronavirus pandemic: (1) Giftapart has provided free Giftapart+ to seniors 60 and over; (2) free Giftapart+ to the people working in healthcare; and (3) free listings on Giftapart to the retailer community.
