About Tillo

Tillo helps you deliver more ways to show appreciation, unlocking a global world of opportunity with our award-winning platform.



Tillo is the rewards, incentives and gifting network for the digital age. Tillo connects the world’s most popular retailers and businesses looking for exciting ways to reach employees and customers through one award-winning API platform with unrivalled user-experience. Tillo works with over 2000 brands in 16 currencies across 34 markets.


Transforming the rewards, incentive and gifting space

Founded in 2016, Tillo’s (formerly Reward Cloud) goal was to transform the gift card market. We recognised 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 revolutionise the market. It was time to shake things up and redefine and how rewards, incentives, and gifts are managed.

Within a year, the Tillo platform streamlined the way rewards, incentives, and gifting can be used. By 2019, we’d achieved 100% year on year growth. Today, over £1 billion worth of gift cards have been processed, making Tillo a market leader in gifting across 34 global markets.

Charity partnerships

Tillo participated in the 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.

What do we love to do?

We help bring rewards, incentives, and gifting to life with the Tillo platform.
