About the giftcard market place - Cardsha

It all started off when our founder John wanted to sell a few giftcards one year to make a purchase at just one store and couldn't believe the expense in selling something that is really gift money. 

"Yeah sell a giftcard at a discount so someone can see the value in buying my giftcard, I mean why buy from me if I can buy the same giftcard at the retailer for the same face value "you scratch my back, I scratch yours", but 10-15% plus commission fees on top of this to get back my gift money just doesn't seem fair. My relatives and friends would be really upset to know that most of there giftcard value had been wasted on fees and commission" says John. 

It's understandable that a platform or marketplace needs to make something from it's users, but why pay them for marketing and high profit margins with your gift money, (I know my grandmother just wouldn't be happy with that and we shouldn't either) it doesn't cost that much to run a website afterall. The real cost of running a site is in the marketing and application design, So we did something about it and started Cardsha the market place for people to sell a giftcard free of commission.

So how do we market the Cardsha website and Giftcard market place

We market our website and market place when others have to spend so much in affiliate fees and social media marketing? 
We give our members a choice of letting us do the marketing for them by giving us a membership fee if there have no friends to tell or by asking them to help us keep the costs down by speading the word to friends and relatives about the Cardsha Giftcard marketplace, infact we really want everyone to hear about Cardsha from a person they know.  So in the true "you scratch my back, i'll scratch yours" mantra if you spread the word we will welcome you freely into the Cardsha community.

How does Cardsha make money to keep the giftcard marketplace running

We need to make money to keep the website running just like any other site however, we only make money when we know our members are happy. We use a membership business model to help fund the website instead of high commission fees and the best part is by telling your friends about Cardsha our members can receive free membership every year. This means that each year, we will ask you to either tell your friends and family about the service. Don't know anyone to tell? pay the membership to access the platform and we will tell someone about us for you, your then free to buy and sell as many giftcards as you like thought the year.
