by yiftee on June 3, 2020

On April 16, 2020, Yiftee, Inc officially announced that they were chosen by Facebook, Inc to make 2,000+ local business and community eGift cards easily purchasable on Facebook and Instagram as a new simple way to support local businesses!

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to support local businesses. Even if you are not currently able to use the services of your favorite movie theater or nail salon, buying a Yiftee is a simple way to show your appreciation for them while their current revenue sources are limited. Yiftee’s relationship with Facebook and Instagram brings your favorite local take-out spots, spas, and salons right to your fingertips in the Facebook and Instagram apps.

While we are all taking steps as a community to embrace social-distancing policies and to help flatten the curve, you can send an eGift card without even leaving the couch. During this period of uncertainty and prolonged isolation, Yiftee makes it easier to show the special people in your life that you are thinking about them and supporting their local shops and restaurants.


There are three ways to buy eGifts on Facebook and the FB app

1) Find eGift Cards Listed in Your Area!

FB uses your zip code to find local eGift cards, but you can also adjust the radius and change the location if you want to send an eGift to a friend in another city

Facebook can now inform you of eGift Cards you can buy for nearby businesses, based on your zip code! You may see a featured post of these local Gift Card options, OR you can find eGift Cards by going to Facebook’s new Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information Center–> How You Can Help–> Support Local Businesses–> Buy Gift Cards
