We make it easy to attract, engage and retain your customers.
Founded in 2016, Tillo’s (formerly Reward Cloud) goal was to transform the gift card market. We recognized the constraints of plastic gift cards in the digital age. Retailers and businesses were often hit by cash flow issues, procurement and settlement frustrations, and problems with distribution and scale.
Founders Gareth Gillatt and Alex Preece looked to technology to revolutionize the market. It was time to shake things up.
Within a year, the Tillo platform streamlined the way rewards and incentives could be used to support acquisition, engagement, loyalty, and payments. By 2019, we’d achieved 100% year-on-year growth. Today, over $2 billion worth of gift cards have been processed, making Tillo a market leader in rewards and incentives across 36 global markets.
Gareth and Alex founded Tillo in 2016 after a series of unfortunate experiences trying to buy corporate gift cards.
The rest is history, and seven years on, a lot has changed...

Tillo participated in the UK free school meals voucher project, and the team bonded closely over the initiative. Because of this impact, we wanted to help those most in need within the community. At Tillo, there was a real appetite to support a worthy local cause. When a member of the team recommended working with Chomp, it was the perfect opportunity for Tillo to give something back. Chomp is passionate about supporting families with children who find themselves in challenging circumstances. They provide integrative support that spans immediate needs, such as food, poverty, and holiday hunger, to meaningful engagement across interdependent communities. The team has worked closely with Chomp since July 2020, delivering food boxes last summer and Christmas gifts to families across Brighton and Hove. To date, Tillo has donated over $15,000.
