Our Mission

We're on a mission to make Gifts Cards easy and convenient giving businesses and customers flexibility and control of all their Gift Card needs.

Our story

In 2014, co-founders Matt and Claire were shopping in Bondi Junction. Matt turned to Claire and said "I'm sure I've got a Gift Card but I've left it at home." And that was their "Ah-ha" moment. It was this very problem that Prezzee is now solving - and so much more. Plastic Gift Cards are easily lost, often left at home and add unnecessary weight to your wallet. What's more Gift Cards can lack meaning and personalisation.

That's why, in December 2015, Prezzee launched Australia's first Gift Card app. Prezzee allows customers to buy, send, store and redeem Gift Cards all via their mobile phone so you will never miss an opportunity to redeem a Gift Card again. With additional features to add your own greeting card and personalise the Prezzee Card (which allows you to choose any Gift Card on the platform) Prezzee is changing how we buy, send and store Gift Cards.

Shortly after the Apps were released, Prezzee Business was launched to solve the pain points of sending Gift Cards in bulk in the corporate market. With the ability to upload smart CSV files, customise your own Gift Card and send to 1000s of recipients in a few simple clicks, Prezzee Business is changing the art of corporate gifting.

Servicing both B2B and B2C markets, Prezzee is revolutionising Gift Cards - giving choice, convenience and flexibility for all.
