Getcards started out as an experiment to show that simple & useful user experiences can be built with cryptocurrency infrastructure.
In 7 months, thousands of Nigerians spent over N57m on Getcards - to shop, pay for apps & subscriptions from international stores that they wouldn’t ordinarily have had access to.
We think that our experiment was a successful one and that it’s time to move on to the next phase.
Effective from Tuesday, August 17, 2021, the Getcards website will be shutting down and you will no longer be able to buy gift cards. We are proud and thankful to everyone who rallied around and supported Getcards over the last few months.
Getcards is not going away entirely.
The Getcards API lives on. If you’d like to be able to buy international gift cards from your favourite app (eg. Abeg, PiggyVest, Barter etc), tell them to hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our support team will dedicate time to attending to users who have complaints and pending issues with the delivery of their gift cards. We will also ensure that all gift cards ordered up until Tuesday are successfully delivered.
Thank you for being a part of Getcards.
The Getcards Team
