About Gratafy

Who we are

We started Gratafy with the belief that people fundamentally gain more from experiences than anything purely digital or physical. In short, Gratafy is a technology platform that brings brands, merchants, and consumers together to share amazing experiences on-premise. Launched in 2012, Gratafy is a privately held company based in Seattle.
