This blog will help you take a look at the size of the reward catalog and offerings that Sendoso and Xoxoday provide. We will also be comparing them in aspects such as technical capability, the number of integrations with third-party platforms they support, and the customer support they provide to their patrons.
By simplifying the rewarding process for businesses and making the rewards delightful for the end-users, Plum provides value to the end-user at every step, starting from defining behavior triggers to enabling action to make results happen. In this process, it inculcates fundamental behavior change.
Sendoso, on the other hand, is an online gifting platform that lets users deliver gifts via modern direct mail, eGifts, and other physical impressions at scale.
Our product caters to various use cases to deliver on user-driven growth and stakeholder alignment.
What makes Xoxoday Plum the Best Corporate Gifting Platform?
Let us now compare both these employee rewarding platforms on the basis of reward catalog, reward redemption capabilities, technology, payment options, integrations, and more.
Not only does Xoxoday Plum cover more use cases (As shown in the table above), it is also a more comprehensive and holistic solution for customers looking for a gifting solution.
1. Global Rewards Catalog
Covering 100+ countries, 20+ reward categories, 21,000+ options with 4,000+ gift Cards, 2800+ brand vouchers, non-profit donations, and cash cards, Plum’s catalog is very holistic and suits a wide range of needs. In addition to that, we have 3000+ perks and custom merchandise.
End-Users on the Storefront can utilize their reward points on our extensive global catalog which includes gift cards, experiences, wellness initiatives, subscriptions, and perks. They can choose from a wide range of categories including automotive, electronics, health and wellness, lifestyle, and get exclusive offers and discounts! For travel enthusiasts, there are 5000+ handpicked experiences and travel options across the globe.
New catalog additions to the Storefront in the next few quarters in 2021 include fintech, merchandise, new gift card APIs, wellness initiatives, and cashbacks. Employees can also access consumer promotions such as lucky draw, spin wheel, etc.
Sendoso, on the other hand, lacks key features such as wellness initiatives, wide range of eGift cards, and doesn't contain as many curated experiences as Plum. Sendoso also lacks the number of reward categories that Plum possesses.
With a massive catalog collection containing 21,000+ gift cards, experiences, perks, subscriptions, wellness, & more, Xoxoday’s Plum wins hands down with Sendoso when it comes to the size of the rewards catalog.
2. Reward Redemption & Distribution Capabilities
For admins like HRs, sales leaders, customer success heads, etc looking to distribute rewards seamlessly, Plum offers omnichannel distribution capability. Plum is perfect for bulk reward distribution as rewards can be given to users via reward points, reward codes, reward links, and QR codes* for them to redeem in the Plum Storefront.
Xoxo points can be used by HR heads or CXO’s of a company to distribute rewards and incentivize their employees, stakeholders, or channel partners. Distributed points can be used by the recipients on the Plum Storefront. Points are accumulated in the user account and they can redeem them as they deem fit.
Xoxo Codes are unique gift codes that can be sent individually or in bulk to end-users. Admins can create these codes in any denomination and currency. Employees can use multiple codes in a single purchase/multiple purchases as per their convenience.
Xoxo Link is a unique link that lets recipients choose the reward of their choice with a single click. Admins can distribute the rewards via email, SMS, and QR codes. Organizations only have to pay for the rewards that are redeemed via Xoxo links.
For admins who wish to use APIs to send bulk brand gift vouchers, Plum provides the capability for admins to distribute gifts en masse.
With flexible options to send rewards across a multitude of channels, Xoxoday’s Plum outmatches Sendoso when it comes to distribution capabilities.

Personalization of gift cards, greetings, images, and messages is possible for special occasions. It is also possible to create custom landing pages/URLs/Micro-sites.

4. Payment Options
We support currencies in 75+ countries. Excess payment options for Storefront users include options such as Net Banking, Credit/Debit Card, and Digital Wallets. Wire transfer is also possible in multiple geographies.
