Presenting itself as “Europe’s number one friends fund-raising platform,” Wishround enables group payments via social networks. After filling in information about the gift they would like to get for their birthday, users spread the word about their wish on Facebook and Twitter, or share a link to invite their friends to contribute to the purchase financially.
If there’s a shortfall, the person can add more money. If the person chose a gift from one of Wishround’s partnering online stores, the purchases can be made on the Wishround site.
Last year Wishround was distinguished in the Ukrainian Startup Rating, an initiative of the GrowthUP accelerator to highlight the country’s most promising tech projects.
