  1. This is a pretty cool feature! Its kinda embarrassing to ask someone for their address when you want to send them a card as a surprise! I wonder how the actual process of asking the recipient is like. Anyone wants to send me a card? πŸ˜‰

  2. When you want to send someone a card, you fill in the recipient’s email address.

    Foldees will then send a friendly email to that person, saying that someone wants to send them a card, and their address is required.

    You can choose to remain anonymous, or to ensure some form of trust, reveal a little bit about yourself.

  3. hahahah… thanks mike. There’s a vacancy in our PR department if you’re interested.

    Chee Ming, why don’t you try the service out? You don’t need to pay for the card until the other party confirms his/her address!
