How does the web app look and feel to use?

Once signed in, a user chooses a gift recipient by name. If desired, a user may give the application permission to link with their Facebook account to choose a recipient. Next, an occasion is selected from a drop down menu.

The next page leads to popular gift ideas. Keep in mind that this will lead to more expensive items as the idea of the app is to share the cost with others. Suggestions may be filtered by gender. Users may also search for gifts. All items are listed on eBay in the Buy It Now category.

After a gift is selected, a user indicates their share of the price. PayPal email, first and last name and last day to contribute must be provided. The user is then asked to sign the card. The next step is to invite friends to contribute through email or Facebook. Friends can use PayPal or credit or debit card. Note that each person decides what they wish to contribute. The cost is not divided equally between each user. When the cost is met, the user can complete the purchase and have the gift mailed to them or to the recipient.

Nothing is charged to PayPal or a credit card until the gift is fully funded.

How does the registration process work?

Users sign in with their eBay accounts. If they do not have an account, first and last name, street address, city, state, zip code, country, telephone number, email address, user ID, password, secret question, date of birth, and security code are required to create one.

What does it cost to use the application?

There is no cost to use the application, but applicable eBay fees, purchase price of the gift, and shipping and handling all apply.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Those looking to purchase a larger gift for someone might like using this to share the cost with others. This allows them to give a more expensive gift.
