How it Works
Q: What is a GroupGreeting card?
A GroupGreeting card is a digital greeting card that can be signed by multiple people (family, friends, coworkers). You create the card and tell us where and when to send it. Then you invite other people to sign by emailing them the
card URL link. By using GroupGreeting, you no longer have to discreetly pass the "manila folder" around the office or amongst friends.
Q: How much does a GroupGreeting card cost?
Each card costs $4.99 USD. This includes unlimited signers, unlimited pages, multiple templates, and a PDF version of the card available upon delivery. We have partnered with PayPal to make your transactions secure.
Q: I don't have a PayPal account. Can I pay with debit or credit card?
For customers in the US, Canada, UK and Australia:
A PayPal account is not required to purchase a card. We use PayPal as our payment solution, but you can use your regular credit card and check out as a guest. When you get to the PayPal screen, click on "Pay with Debit or Credit Card" to use the guest checkout option.
For all other international customers:
Depending on your country, PayPal may offer guest checkout as an option. When you get to the PayPal screen, click on "Pay with Debit or Credit Card." If you don't see this option, then unfortunately guest checkout is not available in your country and you'll need to create a PayPal account.
Q: How do I pay for a card?
To buy the card you created, go to the My Account page and click on the recipient's name. That will bring you to the payment page, where you need to click the "Buy Now" button.
Please note we don't utilize a cart system, so you'll need to buy one card at a time.
Q: Does GroupGreeting work outside of the U.S.?
Yes! Our service is purely digital, so we are able to electronically deliver cards to individuals all around the world. Our prices are stated in U.S. dollars, but when you go through the payment step, our payment processor will do the currency conversion.
Q: How do I sign the card after I’ve purchased it?
After purchasing the card, click on Return to Merchant in PayPal to be redirected to GroupGreeting. Click on the recipient’s name to access the card, and then click "Sign the Card" on the right side.
Q: How do I invite others to sign the card?
You may invite others to sign the card by sending them the card URL link. To get the link, sign in to your account and click the recipient’s name to access the card. Then click the Invite button or copy the link from the address bar. We recommend scheduling the delivery date a few days out so everyone has time to add a message.
Q: Do you have to register for an account to sign the card?
No, registration is not required to sign a card, but we do require a name. Please note if you would like to be able to edit your message after closing your session, you'll need to submit an email address with your message. To edit your message after closing out, you'll need to register and log in with the same email used when signing the card. We do not share email addresses with any third parties, nor do we use your email for spam or any other purpose.
Q: Is there an option for private messages?
Since these are group cards, there is no option for private messages. Just like on a physical paper card, everyone can see everyone's messages.
Q: How do I create a custom cover?
When selecting the card cover, click on "Upload a custom cover." Then click the "Upload my own" button to upload your image in one of the following formats: jpg, jpeg, gif, bmp, png (max file size: 5 MB). The optimal size for the image is width of 440px and height of 550px.
Q: Can I print the card?
A PDF version of the card will be available to download and print after the card has been delivered. However, please note the printed copy will be a low-resolution version as the card is primarily intended for online viewing.
Q: Is there a maximum number of people who can sign a card?
There is no maximum number of people who can sign a card. The card starts with 1 blank page, but our system automatically adds a blank page at the end of the card whenever the last blank page is signed. This encourages signers to fill up the existing pages rather than skipping ahead and leaving empty pages in-between. Don’t worry—you'll never run out of space!
Q: How long is the card available?
The card will be available online for one year from the delivery date. If you'd like to keep the card longer, you can download a PDF version of the card which will be available when the card is delivered.
Q: Are the cards private?
Our cards are considered semi-private in the sense that only those who have the card link can access the card. Additionally, the card links are not searchable on the web. However, the cards are not indexed or password-protected. You are responsible for whom you share the card with and how you share it (email, text, social media, etc.)
Q: How can I change the sender name of a card?
The default sender name is the name on your account. If you prefer to show a group name as the card sender (such as XYZ Team), you can change this by going to the Account Settings tab. Then scroll down to Advanced Settings and input a different name in the "Use a Different From Name" field.
Making Changes to Your Card
Q. How do I delete blank pages?
Before a card is delivered, it will always have a blank page at the end of the card to allow space for signatures. At the delivery time, the blank page will be deleted. Blank pages at the beginning or middle of the card will not be deleted, so we recommend moving messages from the end of the card to fill up those pages.
Q: How do I change the delivery date?
From the card page, click the Settings button . Select a new date/time and then click "Save Changes" to finalize the change.
Q: How do I edit something that I wrote?
CARD SIGNERS: Click the Edit the Card button and go to the page with your entry. Then click the Edit button next to your message. This will bring up the message box, and you can revise your text. Click Done to save.
If you don't see the Edit the Card button, then you’ll need to register/log in first with the same email address submitted when signing the card. If you didn't submit an email address, then please contact us to delete your message and you can sign the card again.
CARD CREATORS: Make sure you're logged in. Click the Edit the Card button and go to the page with your entry. Then click the Edit button next to your message. This will bring up the message box, and you can revise your text. Click Done to save.
As the card creator, you can only edit the text of your own message, but you're able to move or delete anyone's entry on the card.
Q: Can I add pages to a card?
Your card will always have a blank page at the end of the card to allow additional space for signers. When someone signs on the last page, another blank page is automatically generated, but you cannot manually add more pages yourself.
Q: How do I change the card cover?
From the card page, click the Settings button . Then click "Choose a different cover" and select a new cover. Finally, click "Use this Cover" and then "Save Changes."
Q: How do I fix an overlapping message?
CARD SIGNERS: To move your message, click the Edit the Card button and go to the page with your entry. Then click the Edit button next to your message. Drag your message to an empty space or use the page arrows to change pages. Click Done to save.
If you don’t see the Edit the Card button, you’ll need to register/log in first with the same email address submitted when signing the card. If you didn't submit an email address, then please contact us to move your message.
CARD CREATORS: Make sure you’re logged in. Click the Edit the Card button and go to the card page with the overlapping entry. Click the Move button next to the entry. Drag the text box to an empty space or use the page arrows to change pages. Click Finalize to save.
Q: I can't sign the card. What could be wrong?
If you're having trouble signing a card, here are the most common issues:
When you click Sign the Card, a message box should pop up. If not, then it's likely you need to disable pop-up blockers.
If you cannot see the card images, you may be on VPN and your firewall is preventing you from seeing our page. Try logging off VPN and accessing the card again or sign from your phone.
If you cannot see the Next button on the message box, your monitor is too zoomed in. To zoom out if you're on a PC, click CTRL and "-" (minus button). If you're on a MAC, click COMMAND "-" (minus button). You can also click on View and zoom out.
Q: I sent a GroupGreeting card, but the recipient didn’t receive it. Why?
If the recipient's email address was entered correctly, then our GroupGreeting email was very likely blocked or deleted by a spam filter and/or firewall. The best way around this issue is for you to email the recipient directly. You
may forward the notification email we automatically send to you at the same time we email the recipient, or you may simply copy and paste the card link in a new email. This way the email will come from a recognized address rather than ours. If you
did not receive the notification email from us, then your spam filter and/or firewall may be blocking or deleting our emails to you as well. Adding "[email protected]" to your address book should help with this issue in the future.
Annual Subscription Plans
Q. What is the annual subscription period?
Annual plans are 12 months and begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you purchase a plan on August 1, 2020, then your subscription period ends on August 1, 2021.
Q: Do annual plans auto-renew?
Our plans are not renewed automatically. When your plan ends, you will need to purchase another plan.
Q: What is the refund policy?
Refunds are provided only for cancellations made within the first thirty (30) days of your subscription period. Refunds will be given less the cost of transaction fees and any cards delivered within the first 30 days. After 30 days, you may still cancel your subscription plan, but no refunds will be issued. Refunds will be issued to the same account from which the purchase was made. You may cancel your subscription plan anytime by emailing us at [email protected]
Q: What if I need more cards during my subscription period?
If you use all the cards in your plan and need more cards before your current subscription term has ended, you have two options. One option is to pay for each card individually at $4.99. This option is best if you only need a handful
of more cards. The second option is to upgrade to a higher plan. If you would like to upgrade your plan, please contact us at [email protected] We will bill you for the difference in price and convert your plan for the remaining period of your
current subscription term.
Q: Do unused cards roll over to the next year?
No, unused cards do not roll over to the next year.
Q: Do you have a plan that includes more than 100 cards per year?
For plans that include 100+ cards, please contact us at [email protected] for a quote. We would be happy to customize a plan to meet your needs.
