1. BuyVite Group Payments
“Buyvite is a group buying platform and service that lets people split costs socially and easily. Say you’ve agreed to forgo gifts this year all together and take a communal vacation. Fantastic, but you run into the same logistical problems chipping in for the beach house that you would when making joint purchases. Buyvite steps in and does the dirty work. Without driving each other crazy, Buyvite helps members of a group pay each other, pay together, or get paid back for group purchases.”

“CountMeInApp is the latest in gifting tech available to Facebook users worldwide. Founder Jeff Saul is on a rampage with his app that all allows customers to buy and gift a wide variety of items to their friends on Facebook. Users can choose gifts, create a gift registry and they can even pay amounts towards gifts instead of paying for the entire gift.”
