Today, we’re excited to announce the next iteration of gifting at EarlyBird. Thousands of gifts have been sent on our platform since launching version 1 in December. Since then, our team has been working side-by-side with our customers to gather feedback and insights.
With your help, we’re excited to bring you these new features:
Upload existing photos or videos from your camera roll
Simply connect your camera roll, select your memory and share it.
New, beautiful, illustrated gift cards to make your gift even more special
Your memory and financial contribution deserve to be wrapped up in a beautiful container. Watch the spark of joy when a child gets to tap open the card and see what's inside.
View your gift in-browser
Get a full-view of the gift before having to download the app. Learn about the value of EarlyBird before you commit to setting up an account.
Group SMS gift notifications
Automatically get added to a group-chat when the recipient receives notice of your gift.
Reminders to deposit gifts
The recipient will receive SMS reminders if they haven't accepted their gift within 3-days.
Send a thank you note
The recipient can now easily send a thank you note SMS to the sender.
Easily preview your gift, in its full experience, before you send it. Make any necessary changes, and send it off.
These updates are just the beginning. We have some more exciting features coming in the next few months:
👉 Unique occasion cards
👉 New financial assets to gift
👉 Recurring contributions
👉 Gift add-ons
👉 Gift in-browser
Want to provide feedback on this new experience? Book some time with me here to chat about it and I’ll credit you $15 on EarlyBird to gift to a loved one.
