“Yahoo! Shopping” is used not only for personal shopping but also for purchasing gifts, with more than half of the users, 57%, answering that they have “purchased a gift” or “have considered it.” (*2). For seasonal events such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, mid-year and year-end gifts, Valentine’s Day, and Christmas, customers have been able to enjoy gifts on Yahoo! Shopping by setting a delivery address different from that of the orderer. Sweets, alcohol, flowers, etc. are becoming popular as gifts. On the other hand, when giving a gift, some users say, “It’s hard to find the product I want to give,” “I don’t know how to give,” and “I don’t know the recipient’s address.” We have started providing this feature in order to provide a social gifting experience that allows you to easily send gifts without knowing your address. To use this feature, users select the gift they want to give from a wide range of over 1 million products in the target store. In addition to keyword searches, you can also select popular products by category or usage scenario from the newly released special page. After selecting a product, press the “Send Gift” button and a URL will be issued. The URL can be shared with the person to whom you want to give a gift via email, SMS, LINE, etc., and the recipient can use the URL to provide necessary information such as address. Enter. Once the recipient’s input is complete, a notification will be sent, and the orderer will complete the purchase procedure as usual (*3). As with regular shopping, gift purchases via this feature are eligible for campaigns such as Yahoo! Shopping’s “Daily 5%” (payment cap and conditions apply) and “5 Days” campaign, and you can earn PayPay Points. You can save money. In addition, if you select a product with “Excellent Delivery” that will deliver the item from the same day to the day after the order date, even a last-minute gift can be delivered by the desired date. *1: Specific categories and products are not subject to setting. *2: Survey target: Men and women all over Japan, Implementation period: 2022/03/10 to 2022/03/13, Valid number of responses: 1,490, Aggregate target: Users who visited “Yahoo!
