There are lots of ways that you can be invited to contribute to a Group Gift! By the same token, anyone can share the gift invitation with others. The more the merrier!
Importantly, once the occasion (delivery) date and time has passed, new contributions cannot be accepted. However, you can *always* purchase a gift card for the same brand and add value (and messages) separately OR start a new group gift.
If the occasion date has NOT passed, ask the gift organizer to help. The administrative dashboard available to Group Gift Organizers allows them to quickly extend the date -- allowing time for more contributions.

Receiving an Invitation to Contribute
The organizer will share a link to the Group Gift Page with you --by email, text, a Facebook post, or by delivering the link to you in any other way. At any time, whether you contribute or not, you can share the page with friends and family!

About Payments & Timing
Contribution amounts are suggested (or not!) by the Organizer during set-up of the group gift.
Group gift contributions go through a payment approval process that sometimes can take up to 24 hours to complete. Once processed, your contribution will be applied to the total and displayed on the the group gift landing page.
Timing is essential, as the group gift will be closed to contributions at the established delivery date/time. As such, if your contribution is *still pending* before that window, it will not be applied (sorry!)
Login to your eGifter Account to see details of the group gift
At any time, you'll be able to see further information about the group gift (and all other group gifts in which you participated) by logging into eGifter.com and clicking on the "My Group Gifts" menu.
Gift Value Splitting
By default, gift value percentages are split evenly. Click "Custom Split" to modify the percentages.
The Recipient Cannot See The Amount You Contributed
While no other contributors will be able to see the details of your contributions, the Organizer will.
What if the group contributes too much -- or too little?
No worries! Regardless of whether you reached, exceeded or fell short of your goal, the recipient will receive an eGift Card for the total amount collected.
