YouGiver, a Swiss startup founded in 2018, is creating technology and a platform for a new way of communication – communication via gifts. In a world where consumers want to connect and support their favorite celebrities, influencers, creators, etc. there is a barrier of trust that prohibits this from happening.
Many high status individuals are not able to receive gifts from their fanbase due to safety concerns of not wanting their personal information such as their address available to the public. YouGivers unique solution acts as a trustworthy 3rd party that protects this information and allows individuals to give without any worry of private information being shared.
Any person who wants to receive a gift can generate a YouGiver link and post it on social media platforms and messengers. If someone wants to give this person a gift, the person simply follows the link, selects a gift and pays. The recipient’s address is already known to YouGiver and the corresponding gift is sent to the target person through various gift merchants.
Conversely, you can also send a link to a person to give a gift to a person whose address you may not know. The person then provides the address, which in turn only goes to YouGiver. The giver can then select and pay for a suitable gift from a gift catalog and everyone wins!
The Swiss startup is currently working at full speed on a Shopify integration. It allows Shopify stores to expand their business and monetize referrals directly. Let’s say a customer buys his favorite bottle in a Shopify store for wine and thinks to himself, “I could also give this bottle to my best friend Susan”, with YouGiver he will in the future have a way to give the bottle to Susan directly in the store. At the same time, an order is triggered by YouGiver in the backend of the Shopify store and YouGiver receives a fee for the additional initiated and completed purchase.
“My vision and mission is to make people’s lives better, safer and more comfortable, and open up new opportunities with the help of new technologies. All our products are designed for everyday use and complement each other to improve the lives of people around the world.” Said YouGiver’s Co-Founder Eugen von Rubinberg, Who is an entrepreneur & venture capitalist that got into business at a young age and has invested in various industries until he began focusing on the Internet and software industry.
