Small selection and they force this ugly pop up on your site. What a terrible app
This app has been a game changer for my gifting startup! We focus on customized personal gifts for our clients.
My customers love that they can record a personal message with their gift. I love the Hallmark cards and pricing of course. I have seen positive customer acquisition from the gift recipients because they can send a thank you message back to the gift giver.
Gifty allows me to acquire new customers by connecting with the gift recipients. Quick support and feedback from the Gifty staff..Would definitely recommend.... Can't wait to see what they do next!!! Thanks Guys
Not as many floral and gift products as I'd imagined. Way too many T-Shirt products. I'll see how well this works. I think the app needs some tweeking and the addition of more floral and gift items.
So, I left a review that they only had about 20 t-shirt designs...WAS I WRONG! Bob from gifty quickly emailed me and let me know that there are SO MANY MORE!! YES, there are a TON of t-shirt designs!!! I had to completely go out of the app and back in after downloading in order for them all to show up (IDK if it was me or something I did) but, when they did...WOW!!! I am very impressed with the designs and how quickly Bob read and got back to me to let me know the error!! I tried to email Bob back to also let him know that for some reason in the tote bag category the pictures are not showing even when I try to add them to my store but for some reason my emails to him are not being received? Anyway, I am very happy to see that there are more products than expected!
FORGET EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS APP.
(IT'S WAAAAY BETTER THAN YOU THINK.)
If you're here to find lots of stuff from 1-800-Flowers, Hallmark, Harry & David, and Wine Country Gift Baskets, you're going to be disappointed like I was at first. Sure, they have those items, but the selection isn't what you'd imagine it to be. Maybe that will improve with time. I was also put off by not being able to view the product selection in advance and not getting a free trial. But, I figured, hey, I just spent $5, I may as well figure out a way to get my money's worth for the next 30 days, so I did some more searching. BEST DECISION EVER.
I started to search through the rest of their product selection. It's print-on-demand stuff: bath rugs, tote bags, oven mitts, etc, and some various types of wall art, all printed in the USA. They take about 2-4 days print time, depending on what item type, and 3-7 days FREE USA delivery. They state that they have thousands of additional wall art pieces coming soon.
But here's what really sold me: TSHIRTS.
I would totally rename this app "Gift-Tee" if I could.
I decided to add them all. Before I knew it, I had well over 200 tshirts added to my website. I was ecstatic. Not only did I not have to worry about designing a bunch of tshirts, but these were cheaper than if I had designed them myself. CHEAPER THAN SOME ON ALIEXPRESS. If you want to know the real cost, pay the $5 for this app and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed. I have no idea how they do it. And then things got even better.
Their app isn't perfect, I'm not going to lie, but patience is a virtue and I decided to double check to make sure I'd added their entire tshirt selection. They have this drop-down in the app that allows you to see which products have and have not been added to your site. Lo and behold, there were TONS I had missed.
In the end, Gifty/Gift-Tee added a GRAND TOTAL OF 1338 TSHIRTS to my website. I felt like I'd just teamed up with Spencer's.
So, what is Gifty?
1. The best dropshipping app for sourcing quality graphic Tshirts with low, low wholesale prices, printed and shipped in the US.
Forget about designing it yourself or sourcing from Aliexpress. You can have over 1300 Tshirts with room for high-profit margins added to your shop in a day. If I had to start my shop from scratch, this would be the FIRST app I'd choose. Second would be Bulk Product Edit by Hextom, because this app won't let you modify descriptions in the app, fyi.
2. Kind of like Redbubble. You'll be able to add thousands of other quality items printed in the US.
3. EVERYTHING SHIPS FREE IN THE USA. Some items do ship outside the US, but for me, the shipping rates weren't really competitive enough for me to consider it right now.
4. In addition to all of the above, they also allow you to dropship a few floral arrangements and gift baskets.
5. They also allow you to send some personalized Hallmark cards.
6. They give you the option of auto-fulfilling ALL ORDERS. That's right, you could seriously just create an entire store with their items and never have to move another finger again. FOR $5/MONTH!
7. And finally, they allow all of your customers to send gift messages on any purchase and the recipient can respond back, allowing you to grow your customer list.
Summary: BEST $5 spent ever. Just be sure to have some patience with the app and double check to ensure that things import properly. You may need to remove then add back some products if things don't show up at first. Still way faster and easier than designing 1300 tshirts yourself. You can check out the current selection on our website under "Gab Gifts". And if this review has helped you as much as this app has helped me, consider making a purchase while you're there or signing up for our newsletter ;)
Update: After a few months this app has proven to be fantastic and a significant portion of our sales comes from these products. Unlocking all the t-shirt choices (there are thousands of designs, colors and sizes) really helped up build out our catalog.
We looked at several product sourcing apps as well as gift tools and were pleased when we found one that did both. Gifty has some big brands that we are excited to sell and the gift messaging concept is very different, very interesting.
With most of the drop ship apps it seemed like they were going to hit us with big shipping fees but all of the products on here have shipping included and the prices are really reasonable which leaves plenty of margin for us!
I used this for all of 5 minutes and could tell it was too early for us to populate items. We are truly only interested in gift baskets and such. Most other items do not meet a "gift" status. I am only giving a 3 star review because the app did not have a free trial. I gave the app $5 for 5 minutes just to see how it works.
Also the app does not tell you when they charge you how much you would pay them for shipping or if it is included. Searched and searched and that information was not provided.
Maybe in 3 months we can re-attempt. But only if a free-trial is available.
Gifty is a quick, and easy to use app that has a lot to offer the business with a great selection of products for drop shipping. Customers have more options at checkout for personalizing their gift messages. All of this for a low price, and excellent service!
5 And 15
I almost never review things (tend to be very picky!) but Gifty truly deserves the 5 star review. We were happy to be able to offer a wider range of products (shipped from the US) that were of high quality. We had an issue with an order, Bob got back to us super quick and the problem was solved just like that! Customer service like that is pretty rare these days. Big thanks to the team at Gifty!
I hardly ever give 5 stars, but Bob and Gifty/Thank You Back has definitely earned it by helping me take care of a customer issue on Christmas day! (How many people would do that?) I have already sold chocolates, fruit baskets, and a t shirt from their collection of products. I've been with them only a couple weeks, and my store is appx 2 months old. :)
