Plastic Jungle payment exchange

Plastic Jungle’s marketplace business enables companies to turn nearly any gift card into cash. We bundled up this concept into a payment product and delivered it as a service to major retailers.

Design Challenges

  • Clear consumer benefits in the process as it was a entirely new concept
  • Each gift card was different in terms of exchange requirements and price
  • Users had to be authenticated to verify the exchange

Solutions

  • Multi-step flow was launched from a link on a partner’s site
  • Price was presented as an ‘offer’ to consumers
  • PayPal was used to authenticate users
