We’re buying everything online. The only problem: it’s a world of little trust, tons of noise and too many fake reviews. That's why we created GIST.
GIST is a social network built around what you and the people you care about actually buy.
Our patent-pending purchase verification technology allows you to share products from over 15,000 stores — from Apple to Amazon, to everything on Square and Shopify. If you own it, you can GIST it.
Oh, and we’ll tell you when a friend buys something you recommended (because there’s an influencer inside all of us).
GIST is based in San Francisco, California. Our founder Walter Haas started GIST when he saw a co-worker spend $5,000 on baby stuff after her friend sent her a Google Doc. With all due respect to Google Docs, there had to be a better way to make that list!
A safer, better way to buy online. With verified product recs from the people you trust.
That’s the GIST.
