Are you thinking about a gift registry? Our friends at Zankyou have a neat option for bride and grooms-to-be! Here’s what they have to say about their new offering…
Traditional wedding registries are quickly becoming a thing of the past. With the average couple getting married much later on in life, they have often already lived together and have no need for the typical wedding gifts that would simply end up gathering dust in a cupboard. Plus, wedding guests don’t have time to visit department stores to choose a gift! Online cash registries have provided a perfect solution to this, allowing guests to contribute to your gift list online and allowing couples to receive the cash equivalent so that they can spend it on anything they want. Here in Australia, there are a few different options available to future brides and grooms, but we can assure you that choosing Zankyou is your best bet. Don’t believe us? Here are just 5 reasons why you should…
Many modern day couples have already established a home with all of the objects that they could ever need, so they really don’t want more toasters and silverware. Besides, your guests want you to use their money on something that you really want; they don’t want to waste their money on something you’ll never use. Zankyou is a cash only registry, meaning that you will never receive a physical gift, but instead you’ll receive 100% of the money that your guests have contributed and you can spend it on absolutely anything you want. And we mean anything! Maybe you’d love a helping hand to save for your dream honeymoon, and you can even divide the trip into different stages (flights, hotel, dinner, experiences etc), this way your guests know exactly what they’ll be contributing towards. Alternatively, if you prefer you can choose to put physical gifts on your list so that your guests feel like their contribution is going towards something more specific. In the end, though, you’ll only receive cash so you can always change your mind and your guests will be thrilled for you to use their contribution for something that really makes you happy.
TIP: Watch out because other companies will offer a cash registry service, but charge an extra fee to use it!
You won’t find a competitor with cash registry fees as low as ours.! Zankyou’s rates are the lowest on the market and transparency is extremely important to us, so you’ll never find any small print or asterisks. We charge 2.95% of the total contribution made per guest with a 99¢ transaction fee and that’s it. We have no other costs and we don’t even charge any type of commission for transfers to your PayPal account. Always make sure you read the fine print, as most other gift registry providers will take a commission of up to 10% if you decide to take the cash rather than the gifts. This is quite simply because their income depends on selling you the maximum amount of physical gifts, whereas Zankyou follows a social web model whose success depends on how many people use and recommend the service. Some companies even charge a huge fee just to use their service, such as ‘Not Another Toaster’, who charge $150 to create a registry. What’s more, many other companies will charge both you and your guests. With Zankyou, you can choose whether you or your guests cover the fees, so if you choose the second option Zankyou’s services will be completely free for you!
Zankyou provides their service to all couples without exception, and we are specifically designed with international couples in mind. As a result of the increasing number of marriages between people of different nationalities, wedding guests nowadays come from all over the world. Zankyou is the best option for your international guests, since you are able to create your registry in 11 different currencies, meaning that your guests avoid any additional fees by choosing which currency they would like to pay in. They will be able to access your registry from any country in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese or Russian. Besides, with customer services available in all 9 of these languages, there is always a member of the Zankyou team available to lend you a hand to you or your guests!
Zankyou is immensely convenient for both you and your guests. You can create your registry in just a few clicks and if you’re really pressed for time, you can even use one of our ready-made gift registries which contain gifts that have been selected according to four different lifestyle options: Traditional, Modern, Design, Experience. By creating a Zankyou registry, you are also saving your loved ones time and stress by allowing them to send you a gift that they know you’ll love in just a few clicks. If your guests are not computer savvy, they are always welcome to give us a call and contribute by phone too! We also have a free mobile app so you and your guests can use all of our services on the go. Plus, we transfer the full cash equivalent of the gifts received to the PayPal account of your choice, with no waiting around until after the wedding.
Your Zankyou online registry is completely personalisable, so you can edit the design, colours, texts and images to reflect your personality and your taste. Not only that, you can decide what you would like to name your website and we reserve a personal web address for you. We believe that your wedding experience should be special and completely unique, so our guests can write their own message to wish you well at the time of contributing and then Zankyou will print them off individually onto beautiful cards and send them to you after your wedding, along with some little extra Zankyou gifts. We love to do that little bit extra to make sure everything is perfect.
