Company Frontend

The company frontend has information about the initiative, legal terms, a way for companies to register to take part in Ferðagjöf.

By registering they will be created in Ferðamálastofnun and Yay.



  • Ferðamálastofnun: To register companies in their database, their website is the main place to view what companies are a part of Ferðagjöf.

  • Yay: To manage gifts. The Yay system has a way to distribute gifts to users and a backend for companies to use those gifts.

  • Skatturinn: To get basic information about companies and verify that they are eligible to take part in Ferðagjöf.

  • Nova: To send SMS in order to confirm phone numbers.


This project had a very short timeline and will be thrown out eventually. There were a lot of shortcuts taken as this was the first project developed and not much infrastructure ready to use.
