Popfor is a way for friends to give and receive gifts purchased from local merchants. With Popfor, local merchants that would otherwise
never be able to sell online (e.g. coffee shops, bars, restaurants, etc.) can now receive revenue from online buying. Even better,
Popfor makes online buying a social experience. Social + Local = and $ for local businesses.
