Giftapart offers free and discounted Gifapart+ to assist during

SOMERVILLE, NJ, March 21, 2020 -- Giftapart Inc., the world's first social ecommerce supermall, has implemented several promotions to assist the public during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

First, the free shipping threshold for new Giftapart+ members has been reduced from $49 to $29. Second, annual membership fees have also been reduced from $99 to only $79. And, third, Giftapart+ is now available to people 60 and over for free.

Giftapart is a free platform providing over 25 million products from hundreds of America's largest, most trusted and well-known stores. Giftapart+ is an yearly membership service providing free shipping, extra Cashback Rewards, Cashback Rewards on gift registry purchases to the host, and unlimited full album downloads.

"During these unprecedented times, Giftapart is pleased to provide this service 100% free for three months to the seniors who are stuck at home and may need to make purchases online," said Filipe Pedroso, founder and CEO, "At the core of Giftapart's DNA is perfecting gifting, increasing social connectivity, and bringing happiness to people. We want to do something to help in these difficult times. The older population is especially impacted, vulnerable, and at risk to COVID-19. Giftapart has the tools to make it easier, faster and cheaper for them to get the products they may need without leaving the house. By providing free Giftapart+ to seniors, we hope to make it more financially economical to our seniors to find and shop for what they need from the comfort and safety of their home."

"Giftapart provides an online marketplace with hundreds of America's most trusted and known stores all in one place," continued Pedroso, "Giftapart+ is a membership only feature that provides free shipping. Typically, a consumer would need to reach $49 in total purchases to get free shipping, but during this pandemic we've lowered that amount to $29. What's awesome is that Giftapart+ members can mix and match from any of the retailers on Giftapart and the more than 25,000,000 products, and now get free shipping when the total order reaches only $29."

Giftapart is free to use. However, Giftapart+ typically costs $99 per year for membership. Currently, and for a limited time, anyone may join Giftapart+ for only $79 per year. Seniors 60 and over can signup for free. With membership, and for a limited time, users get free shipping from any purchase, mixing a variety of retailers, reaching only $29. Since Giftapart provides about 200 stores in one platform, the free shipping option provides tremendous financial savings to the users.

"You can mix items in your shopping cart from different stores. If you were to shop from the retailers' online stores directly, you'd likely be charged shipping. But by using Giftapart+, you don't pay for shipping at all as soon as your total purchases reaches the $29 total," added Pedroso.

Giftapart Cashback Rewards also add great savings. All Giftapart users get Cashback Rewards, up to 10%, on purchases that can be used later for anything they want to buy from Giftapart. However, Giftapart+ members get 1.5x the Cashback Rewards -- up to 15%.

"There is no better and more economical place to shop online," stated Pedroso, "With free shipping and Cashback Rewards, the savings add up fast! And now seniors 60 and over can get these fabulous features and savings for free."

"We all have a responsibility to do our part," explained Pedroso, "Every business and person across America should think about how they can help. We're all in this together. And together we'll get through it better and faster."

Seniors wishing to accept this offer simply need to follow these easy steps before April 15, 2020: (1) Create a free Giftapart account on Giftapart.com or on the apps; (2) email seniors@giftapart.com from their email used to signup to Giftapart proof of age by providing a photo of the driver's license, passport ID page, or birth certificate; and, (3) enter the code provided back by email in the Giftapart+ membership area in the profile page.

Giftapart is much more than the world's first social ecommerce supermall. Giftapart has also revolutionized the gift registry system. For the first time in the world, a person can get the gifts from their registry in the precise order they select. Giftapart also provides a way for people to interact and socialize about products online.
