‘Helping to maintain that social connection’ Mobile app Get Your Drink On offering digital gift card
The Get Your Drink On mobile app helps users grab a beer, cocktail or glass of wine for their buddies, wherever they are. Since people can’t go out for a drink because of the coronavirus outbreak, GYDO is helping venues compensate by providing a digital gift card platform.
Founder Ryan Williams said all venues have to do to launch their gift cards is sign-up for GYDO. The only registration requirement is an active Facebook business page.
“Once somebody has downloaded the mobile application, they can send a designated amount to any venue. The venue gets the funds immediately. Obviously with the whole shelter-in-place it’s not exactly easy to visit the respective venues,” Mr. Williams said.
There are 25 venues in the Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria areas that support GYDO, including Night Lizard Brewing Company, Skyenna Wines, Brass Bear Brewing, Island Brewing Company and Rincon Brewery.
GYDO is free for businesses to use. For more information visit https://gydo.me/ or call 805-284-5213. Instructions on how to register as a user or business owner are available on the GYDO YouTube channel.
