Yes, this is the number of people whom we’ve helped raise money for group gifts, personal projects as well as good causes! With thousands money pots created on daily basis, we’ve seen many happy stories, filled with smiles and laughter, as well as some sad ones, filled with tears and hope. Helping you bring your projects to life has filled our hearts with fulfillment and happiness! We’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge ‘thank you’ to the 7 million of you who’ve put your trust in our service!
Throughout these 7 years we’ve never lost sight of our core business values, which we live by everyday!
Not by chance are we considered the European leader in online money pots 😀
Since our creation, Leetchi.com has never stopped innovating, offering our users a product that is adapted to their ever changing online behavior. We’ve always taken security concerns seriously and developed our own payment solution MANGOPAY, which is now recognised and used by 2000 sharing economy platforms, to process all our transactions.
User experience focus
Leetchi.com was born from the simple fact that there was no online solution for people to quickly raise money together towards gifts, events and common expenses. Since then, Leetchi.com has expanded the use of its platform in order to accommodate your needs as well as the new trends in online fundraising and crowdfunding. Today, the platform comes in handy not only in sorting our group gifts, but also raising funds for personal projects and charitable causes.
We are committed not only to delivering seamless and personalised customer service but also listening to your feedback for future product improvements. Thanks to you, we are able to constantly innovate and add new features to our platform!
