Developing a custom gift card system


UX Design, Development




NeighborShare, a non-profit dedicated to assisting families in financial emergencies, sought to implement a bespoke gift card system in time for the holiday season, facing a tight deadline.


We met NeighborShare's critical deadline with our flawless implementation of a custom gift card system, crucial for their holiday campaign. This strategic addition significantly boosted their fundraising, directly aiding families in financial emergencies.


Strategic Discovery

Our first step involved a deep dive into NeighborShare's technology stack, the structure of their existing application, and their specific needs. From this foundation, we devised a strategic plan focused on simplifying the user journey and seamlessly integrating the required new features.

Gift Card Functionality

We built a custom gift card system allowing users to send and redeem gift cards on the site. We optimized the database architecture to accommodate the new functionalities, which ensured smooth performance and future scalability. We also built an admin tool for bulk gift card generation — empowering corporate donation efforts.

Further Optimizations

We enhanced the app's checkout flow for an intuitive donor experience and further optimized the existing Stripe integration for more efficient and secure transactions. During the process, our team also meticulously cleaned up and refactored the existing code, fixed bugs, and eliminated visual inconsistencies, improving the app's performance and aesthetic appeal. Prior to launch, we conducted thorough testing and quality assurance to ensure that the enhancements were bug-free and ready for launch.
