The Basics

Similar to a traditional gift registry, couples create honeymoon registries and list items that they would like to have for their honeymoon. Items can range from general requests, such as transportation, lodgings, and special meals, to more specific requests for particular tours and activities. Guests can contribute to the couple's honeymoon memories by sending monetary gifts for specific items. An increasing number of newlyweds now have all the housewares that they need, so a honeymoon registry is the perfect way to start off their life together!

With Wanderable's wedding and honeymoon registries, you are free to add anything you want! You can add items for your honeymoon or gifts you'd appreciate for your home. Complete customization means this registry is completely for your new life adventures.

Couples list items that they would like on their honeymoon registry. Through our simple payment system, guests can choose items that they like and buy them with a credit card, or take responsibility for delivering a check to the couple. They leave a personal note and have an option to print out a matching gift card to include with their gift or card to the couple. Couples get email notifications with every gift, and can easily keep track of which thank you cards they've sent through our system.

No problem! Sometimes you may want a honeymoon registry and a separate registry for material things: more power to you! Wanderable does have a cash fund option, though, so you are able to add anything else you may need (travel or otherwise).

Gifts provided to you via cash or check are 100% FREE. For gifts given using a credit card, a 2.5% service fee is deducted from the gift amount. The gift giver is also charged a 2.5% + $0.99 transaction fee on checkout (though you may choose to cover the 2.5% on behalf of your guests).

Overall, the transaction fee is charged to us by our payment processor, while the service fee allows us to keep our operations running and provide a service.

In addition to being completely AD-FREE, Wanderable has no "Upgrade" fees, subscriptions, or monthly fees. All of the great features of our system are 100% FREE to set up and use.

No ads, no high fees, and we've just made all our designs free. We're charging the small fee and hoping enough couples love our registries to use them for their honeymoon and anything else they wish for their new life together.

Unfortunately, like rain in Seattle or traffic in Los Angeles, credit card fees are unavoidable. We keep our fee as low as possible while ensuring that it covers both a high level of customer service (phone and email) and honeymoon registry innovation. With Wanderable's honeymoon registries, you have complete customization with color selection and a design for every taste.

Our fee is very competitive given the high costs associated with accepting credit cards online. The average cost for merchants that accept credit cards online is approximately 3%. Large online companies like Amazon.com may get lower rates but fees for Internet-based companies are always more expensive than those charged to physical stores. Combined with overhead costs, that makes our profit margin very small. However, our business model is strong and built on our history of serving tens of thousands of couples every year.

One may ask, why accept credit cards if it is so expensive? The reason is because guests would rather use their credit card than give a check or cash because it is far more convenient. We've found that gifts are, on average, 34% larger when the guest uses their credit card than if the gift was provided with cash or a check.

For Couples

Building Your Registry

Adding experiences is easy. Once you login, click on 'Registy' and then 'Items'. From there you can add anything! Have more questions? Email us at hello@wanderable.com and we'll be happy to help.

Note: Guests do not have to log in, request invites, or have a Wanderable account to purchase a gift.

Guests can easily choose items from your registry and click on "Give gifts." They will choose a payment method (cash or check, or credit card) and we'll confirm their purchase with an email.

Offer your guests the "Cash or Check" payment option. When your guests check out, they can choose to "Pay in person (with cash or check).” Guests will then mail your gift or deliver in-person at your shower or the wedding itself. There are never any fees applied to gifts purchased with the "Cash or Check" payment option. This option is 100% free to both you and your guests.

When it comes to gifts given via credit card, you can avoid most fees for your guests by choosing to absorb fees on their behalf. Guests will then only be charged a small $0.99 fee on checkout but pay no other fees of any kind.

Keeping Track of Your Gifts

If a guest has chosen to "Pay in person (with cash or check)", they will bring the amount for the gift to your wedding reception or personally mail your gift. Gifts made with a credit card will be available in your account to withdraw via mailed check or direct deposit as cash after 72-hours. Immediately upon receiving your first gift, a "Redeem Gifts" will appear under "Your Account". After 72 hours, simply click on the "Redeem Gifts" to schedule your check or bank transfer.

Gifts are shown in your account balance immediately and available for redemption after 72-hours.

The fastest redemption option for U.S. residents is the ACH Bank Transfer. These are processed within (1) business day but allow up to (3) additional business days for the funds to appear in your bank account. Check redemptions are MAILED within (3) business days of the redemption and delivery time will vary by location. Please allow up to (10) business days to receive a bank check in the mail. All U.S. redemption options are FREE.

In order to keep fees low for everyone, we need to make sure that credit card charges are not fraudulent. The 72-hour delay allows us to check all transactions. It's an unfortunate but necessary measure for us to take. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We believe a personal thank you card is always best. Even better, include a photo of the activity or experience you received in the thank you card. On your Gifts page, we provide you with all guest contact information and an easy way to keep track of whom you still need to thank..

Managing Your Registry

You have the option of accepting gifts through a credit card or your guests can mail a check or bring the gift to the wedding reception.

Yes, multiple guests can totally contribute to some of your larger registry items. Just separate it into several items of lower amounts with "quantity" and "cost of each". For example, for a $100 kayaking trip, just mention that you want quantity "2" and each of them should be "$50". Guests can then choose the items that fit within their budget.

Your custom honeymoon registry page will have an easy-to-remember web address that you can create and share. Wedding registries should never be mentioned in your wedding invitations. However, creating a wedding website and including it in your wedding invitations is a great way to let guests know about all of the details of your wedding (including your registry!). You can easily tell people about your wedding website through e-postcards (with a link to your wedding website) or announcement cards (that announce your wedding website) in the wedding invitation. There are several wedding website companies to choose from that are free or charge a low monthly fee.

Of course! Wanderable's mission is to make gifts meaningful, so feel free to add anything to your registry that will bring great experiences and memories for your new life together. :)
