Firebox launches instant gifting Gift Fix! app

Firebox launches instant gifting Gift Fix! appFirebox has partnered with Hoita to announce the launch of Gift Fix!; the instant gift messaging app that lets users send gifts straight to the door of family and friends. Users only need the recipient's mobile phone number to send a gift. With no logins required and no time wasted, sending a Firebox gift only takes 10 seconds, from start to finish.

Simply select a recipient from your phone's contact list, choose from over 50 exclusive, funny and shareable gifts, add a gift message, pay and confirm. The recipient receives an instant alert, accepts their gift via text message, and replies to Firebox with their delivery address.

The app also incorporates a Birthday Alerts feature to upload those all-important dates, either directly from Facebook or manually, and sets reminders so users never forget a birthday present again.

Kristian Bromley, Managing Director of Firebox, said: “With Gift Fix!, we've been able to provide a curated range of products to suit the instant gifter's needs. With a variety of gifts ranging in price and a one-off amount to pay, including postage and no additional text messaging fees, it's an incredibly straightforward and easy-to-use app. New products are uploaded constantly, to give customers the latest in great gifts for their friends.”

The app's instant mobile gifting is powered by Hoita, the innovative technology company behind the UK gift app Parcelgenie. CEO Dr. John Taylor says: “These are exciting times for Hoita and we're delighted to bring our instant gifting to Firebox. Our fast and fun customer experience combined with their brilliant products makes a perfect mix.”
