What is Giftologi?
We thought you’d never ask! Giftologi is the first of its kind multi-purpose online gift registry in Africa, launched in Ghana.
How does an online gift registry work?
It’s pretty simple! When you have any celebration coming up, where gifting is appropriate, you can use an online gift registry to curate a wishlist of items you would like to receive as gifts from your friends and family. You then share the wishlist (your registry) with your friends and family either via social media, email, Whatsapp or by giving them your unique registry URL. Your friends and family then come on our website, find your gift registry, select and buy an item for you and we wrap and deliver the item to you in time for your celebration.
What does multi-purpose gift registry mean?
Multi-purpose gift registry means you can use Giftologi for ANY occasion. The registry, products and treats we provide are not limited to one specific event or category.
Is Giftologi only for weddings?
We get this one a lot because most gift registries cater only to weddings either online or in-store. Giftologi is for here for ALL your celebrations. This covers birthdays, weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, anniversaries, house warming parties etc. Everyone is welcome!
Can I shop on Giftologi without creating a gift registry?
Yes! Once you create an account you will be able to access the Giftologi shop and spoil yourself, without creating a registry.
What is group gifting?
We offer group gifting because we know some gift items can be quite costly for just a single buyer. In these cases, you can select the group gifting option, set an amount you would need and indicate which items your friends and family are contributing to.
How long can I have a registry?
You can create a gift registry up to 6 months before your event/occasion. Gift registries close automatically 2 weeks after the event/occasion date.
What is a cash fund?
Giftologi cash funds allow you to set an amount with different cash products and quantity your friends and family can contribute money towards your cause.
For example, if you wish to have GHS 5000 towards your honeymoon, you can select two GHS 1000 products (making GHS 2000), four GHS 500 products (makes GHS 2,000 and adds to GHS 4,000) and finally add ten GHS 100 products (GHS 1,000). This will bring you to a total of GHS5,000 and give your friends the chance to give according to their limits.
Alternatively, you can select the GHS 1000 product and set the quantity at 5.
You can call +233 302 944 158 for further assistance.
What can I use a cash fund for?
Cash funds are great for funeral donations, contributions to honeymoons or any other experiential gifts as well as group gifting which requires multiple people to purchase an item.
Why do I need to upload a death certificate in order to create a funeral cash fund?
The integrity of Giftologi, as well as safe user experience, are key to us. We require that a death certificate be uploaded in order to create a cash fund for funerals to verify that the gift registry owner is indeed bereaved.
When will I receive the funds in my cash fund?
The amount in your cash fund, less 5%, will be transferred to you 2 weeks before the funeral date and again 2 weeks after if additional funds have come in when the cash fund automatically closes
Creating a Registry
Do I have to pay to create a registry?
Nope! Creating a registry is absolutely FREE!
When can I create a registry?
You can create a registry as early as 6 months to your event. We advise you create your registry as early as possible to give your friends and family ample time to purchase all your gifts. The latest we advise you create your registry is 2 weeks to your event/occasion.
Do you have any tips on creating a registry?
Try and have a good mix of prices in your registry so that all your guests can find items within their respective budgets
Will my registry be public?
Only if you want it to! You have the option to make your gift registry private so that only people you share it with can access it.
How do I opt for group gifting?
Create a cash fund and list the items you wish to be group gifted.
What happens if the group gifting amount is not reached?
Since group gifting is designed for products on Giftologi, whatever amount is reached in your group gift cash fund will reflect in your Giftologi account as a voucher to shop on the website.
Can I create more than one gift registry at a time?
Not at this time. We are working on it, though. Stay tuned!
