SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IfOnly, a marketplace for unique local experiences benefiting charitable causes, announced today that it has launched a new feature just in time for the holidays called "Buy With Friends" that enables customers to book fun things to do with a group and facilitates the whole process, making payments, scheduling, and event management simple.

When selecting an activity or offering from the thousands available, a user can choose the "Buy With Friends" option that enables them to customize an invitation and designate friends to receive an email with a link to the experience. Recipients can then RSVP and make a payment. In addition to being a convenient feature for IfOnly users, local luminaries are now able to more effectively market their experiences to larger groups. "Our new 'Buy with Friends' feature allows our unique events and experiences to be more affordable for everyone by alleviating the hassles for event hosts who would typically be tasked with collecting payment from members of the group along with managing all logistics," explains IfOnly CEO and Founder Trevor Traina. "While there are other shared group payment apps out there, ours is directly connected to a worldwide emporium of local experiences unavailable anywhere else - from a private glass-blowing class at the Glassybaby factory to having an acclaimed vegan chef create an unforgettable meal for friends in your home."
