Q. What is Geefter?
Geefter makes it easy and fun to organize a group gift for a friend, family member or someone in need. Use Geefter for organizing group gifts for weddings, birthdays, baby showers, anniversaries, office gifts, etc..
Q. How does it work?
You create a Geeft by telling us who the gift is for, what you are gifting, and how much the gift costs. If you need the gift by a certain date be sure to enter that in too. Upon creating a Geeft you will be asked to sign up by either creating a Geefter account or using your
Facebook login. Once you have signed up you will be taken to your Geeft where you can invite as many friends as you like. You will also have the option to share pictures, commments, and contribute financially to the gift.
Geefter utilizes PayPal to collect all the micro payments. The Geeft expires when the end date is reached. If the financial goal is reached before the end date the organizer has the option to close
the Geeft early. All participants will receive an email at the end of the Geeft summarizing the event. The organizer will receive an additional notification with instructions
detailing how to close out the Geeft: Geefter will need to know how the organizer wants to recveive the gift.

You will be asked to fill out a form with the details about where the check is to be sent and so forth.
Q. Does Geefter buy the gift?
Geefter does not automatically buy the gift. When you create the Geeft you have to check the box that indicates you want Geefter to buy the gift. There is a 3%
service fee that we charge and you need to agree to this by checking the box. If you did check the box then a 3% service fee is calculated and added to the goal amount. Geefter
will find the gift online and conduct the transation. The service fee does not include shipping costs; you need to figure that into the goal amount. Geefter does not ship the gift.
The gift is shipped by the merchant Geefter purchased the gift from.
