Press Kit

Caysh offers a memorable way to send a monetary gift. You might just swear off gift cards forever.

Caysh offers you the tools, but you add the personality! Snap a picture or upload an existing memory to be attached with your gift. When your recipient opens their Caysh Card, they can immediately send you a personalized 'thank you' card! Don't worry about the monetary transfer as our partners, and market leaders, Paypal and Venmo, will take care of the logistics. Even if the recipient hasn't registered with Caysh, Paypal, or either, the gift will be delivered and their cash will be waiting for them to claim it.

We think of Caysh as a digital piggy bank. You have the power to use Caysh when and where YOU want.

Tech.Co: Caysh 2015 Chicago Startup of the Year

"Caysh is cooler than a gift card. Why spend 45 minutes and $6 or more, driving to the grocery store, searching for a greeting card, selecting a gift card, buying a stamp, and dropping it all in the mail, only to wonder if your gift ever arrived, and whether they liked it or not?"

"Caysh, a startup based at 1871, offers a more personal version of the gift card...It starts with a picture of you. What could be more personal? The sender adds a message such as 'Happy birthday' and uses a credit or debit card to send money into the recipient's PayPal [or Venmo] account."
