A really cool feature of Mocapay is the ability to “Gift-a-Friend.” You can purchase a gift card and have it sent to your friend or family member’s mobile phone from your own Mocapay App or even from our website online: https://www.mocapay.com/p/sendcard/mca.
To purchase the gift card online:
- Go to www.mocapay.com (our main webpage)
- Once on the webpage, look to the right and you will see in big blue letters “click here to buy a gift card”.
- You will need to set up a Mocapay Account even if you do not have a smartphone! Up in the right corner of the webpage in the green bubble you will see a link to sign up.
Note: You can use Mocapay from any phone with text messaging, (but do not forget, standard text messaging rates do apply) you just cannot purchase the mobile gift card from your mobile phone without the App. That is why if you do not have a smartphone, you use our website listed above.
- BE SURE that once you sign up, you select the “Send a Mobile Gift Card” link. Be sure not to buy a card and send to your own phone number, as these mobile cards are not transferrable.
- Select your cards (and their amounts).
- Scroll down and enter the recipient’s name, mobile number, email address (and yes, you do have to enter the email address for the card to process), the date you would like the card to be delivered, and an optional message. Again, be sure to enter the mobile number for the person who you want to receive the card. Plus, you can choose the date for it to be delivered to them so if their birthday is still three weeks away, pay for it and don’t worry, it will get sent on their birthday!
- After that you can check out. If you do not already have a credit card associated with your account, you will need to fill in your billing information as well.
- The gift card will then be sent to you friend or family member! You will receive an email receipt and they will get a text message telling them of your gift.
To buy the gift card from your Mocapay Mobile App:
- Select the “Gift-a-Friend” icon at the bottom of the screen.
- Select which of out Merchant’s gift card you would like to send to your friend or family member.
- Pick the card amount to wish to give and then select the credit card you would like to charge for the purchase.
- The App will then ask you to enter the recipient’s name, mobile number, email address (and yes, you do have to enter the email address for the card to process), the date you would like the card to be delivered, and an optional message. Again, be sure you enter the person’s mobile number who you want to receive the mobile card, not your mobile number.
- Now you will hit the “Send Gift” button at the bottom of the page. You will immediately be asked to enter your 4 digit PIN (which you set up when you download and set up your Mocapay Mobile App), and then the gift card will be processed and sent to you friend or family member!
