Ever wanted your own gifting application? Now you can have one using GiftScript! No programming experience is required!
A lot of the gift app scripts floating around require users to earn virtual currency to send gifts to one another. They can earn some of that currency on their own, but more often than not they need to pay for it. GiftScript was built on the philosophy that virtual gifts should be completely free. Users will earn ‘points’ in the application by simply sending gifts to friends. As they gain points, they’ll unlock new gifts to send. The only limitation is that they can only send the same gift once daily to the same friend.
This app is absolutely perfect for promoting your business. Flower Shops, Bakeries and even Hardware Stores could benefit from the script by offering virtual counterparts to your real-world items!
Please note that this is an application for Facebook. You will need a Facebook account to create the application on Facebook. I am a freelance programmer and am in no way endorsed by or affiliated with Facebook.
You will need to have an SSL certificate for your server. The script will handle the connection on its own, but you will need to contact your hosting service to work out how to add an SSL certificate to your server. If you are in need of a free SSL certificate, StartSSL.com offers one.
(Optional) I will do the entire installation of the script onto your server and Facebook application setup for a fee.
