MakeMyTrip Limited has partnered with Mypoolin, a P2P and social payments company, to enable group-payments for travel gift cards. This collaboration will help ease the process for consumers who want to shop for shared gift-cards and vouchers on MakeMyTrip for personal or corporate gifting as a group of friends or colleagues.
 
After the introduction of industry-first travel gift cards, MakeMyTrip is now making it even more convenient for people to make group payments and opt for gifting their loved ones a holiday of their choice. These gift cards allow recipient to avail a wide range of travel offers including flights, hotels, and holiday packages ranging from INR 1000 to INR 50,000. Tailoring it further per consumer choice, these gifts cards can be easily customised and remain valid up to 12 months from the date of purchase.

Commenting on the partnership, Mohit Gupta, COO-Online, MakeMyTrip, said, “MakeMyTrip has always been a one stop shop for all things travel and given how more and more people now value travel as the ultimate gift, we want to offer them all the choice they deserve. This partnership with Mypoolin will help our customers make seamless and hassle free group-payments, facilitating ease and convenience in buying travel gift options.”

Announcing the new initiative, Rohit Taneja, Co-Founder, Mypoolin, said, “Social Commerce’ or more simply ‘Social Payments’ has been a new concept to come up in the last few years. It is the proliferation of ‘shared economy’ lifestyle that makes these social use cases so prominent and common for us. With this functionality, a customer can easily purchase a bigger and better gift for someone's wedding or reception can simply invite his friends to put in their share of contribution with the click of a button. The idea is that pre-collection of the amount for the gift leads to a higher purchasing power and increase in choices as well as the thought process that goes into the gift. This leads to a huge benefit for the consumer in terms of making the process more seamless and fun as well as avoiding the hassle of chasing his friends after the purchase in case they thought of settling it later.”
