1.Is it like I cadge a present from my friends?
No, you don't need to ask for anything.
If your friends are not going to congratulate you in any way or you do not have a big day, if you do not have dreams, this service is not for you, sorry friend... Use Wishround only in the following cases:
- You have a dream for which you need more money than people can usually give you individually.
- You know exactly what you want and you are sick and tired of useless gifts.
- For you it's better one meaningful gift than a dozen useless ones.
- You want your friends, relatives, colleagues to know that they have spent money not in vain, and you will be really satisfied with the present!
- You and your friends are going to give a desired gift to your common friend.
2.Tips and tricks to increase fundraising
- Spread information about the wish in all social networks you use!
- Send private e-mails and messages to close people – they definitely want you to be satisfied with the present, but do not know what exactly to give.
- Do not forget about colleagues and playmates! Everyone wants to make you happy and will be able to join your present!
- Post in a social network about your desired gift can go down on the page within a few hours. That's why it is useful to regularly raise your post and invite friends to comment on it.
3.What if I do not raise enough money for a wish
We do our best to make wishes come true but anything can happen.
If your friends don't want to help you fulfil your dream, you can always add funds to the wish account on your own or withdraw collected amount to your bank account instead of buying the gift.
1.May I stop my campaign?
Yes, log in to Wishround, go to your wish page and click 'Wish Control Centre' at the top of the page. Choose 'Wishes' section and click 'Stop campaign'.
There are few important points:
1. If your wish already has funds, when creating a new wish, we transfer these funds to the new one.
2. This does not apply if you have created a wish in one of our partner stores and you want to transfer funds to a wish from the other store or to the wish that you created manually. You can spend money collected for a wish created in a partner store only in the same store.
2.How do I make a post about my wish in social networks?
Just copy the link of your wish and paste it to your post in a social network, add nice text about your wish and tag friends! You can also find the wish link in 'Wishes' section in the Wish Control Centre.
