Working at
WAM

WAM is the fun new way of giving. As society becomes increasingly disrupted by Covid-19, we wanted to find an innovative way to show our friends we care whilst also boosting the income of our much loved local stores. The idea behind WAM is that users buy small, virtual gifts for their friends (such as a coffee or muffin from their favourite cafe) via our fun, interactive app which can then be exchanged for the real thing. Can’t make someone’s birthday? WAM them some cupcakes! Friend having a bad day? WAM them a coffee from their favourite coffee shop! Want to say more than just “thank you” to someone? WAM them brunch at their local hangout! .......You get the idea ;-) WAM is the perfect way to brighten a friend´s day by sending them a small gift they are able to enjoy instantly on the day that it is sent. Our focus is on partnering with as many independent stores as possible to boost their sales and support the vital job they do for our local communities.
