Shopify Dev Gifts

Millions of merchants trust Shopify to run their business—but they need developers to build the tools that help them achieve independence. Shopify was looking for a meaningful way to say thank you to the global community of app developers who keep their platform thriving, so they contacted Gift Better Co. to curate a custom gift to send them as a token of appreciation.

After hearing Shopify staff members rave about the importance of the app developer community, we knew that we had to deliver something special. So, we set out on a mission to create a custom gift that recipients couldn’t help but rave about. 

The Challenge

This project posed some logistical challenges. Shopify’s developer community spans the globe and our point of contact at Shopify didn’t have all of the addresses of the recipients. To help ensure that the gifts ended up in the right hands, we created a custom address collect page with a secret link so that potential gift recipients could fill in their shipping info and we would know where to send each gift. The Shopify team simply sent the secret link to each developer that they wanted to send a gift to, and we took care of the rest! 

The address collect page allowed us to seamlessly collect addresses and ship 50 gifts to 13 countries.
