Tom Kind and some of their team believed in us, and our energy went way up again.  We assigned a new leader and re-assigned the team back to GiftYa.  

We started integrating with Mastercard.

All was going well, then we had a jam – technical issues that made us drag on and on for months.  During the time, we continued to email and call Visa, but we also met Dwolla, Venmo, and others connected to customers financial institution data.  We thought this could potentially enable us to not need to rely on Visa or Mastercard.  

So we started down the path of reviewing their API’s and integrations.
