When I was registering for gifts, I remember thinking that I wish I could register at 100 different stores so that my husband and I could get the variety of useful items we knew we wanted and not feel limited by the constraints of one or two stores. Well, the modern world has finally caught up to our needs, because one of our sponsors, Zankyou, provides an amazing registry service that’s much like registering at way more than 100 stores.

  • Zankyou sounds like a great idea! Wish I knew about that when I got married last August! I will definitely pass this on to my clients…

    Why does their ad on Ruffled say they are free when they charge 2.85%?

    Also, do they accept credit cards?

  • Hi Bethany,
    Kristen here from Zankyou. Great question! Our couples can choose whether they’d like to absorb the 2.85% fee themselves, or if they’d like to defer it to their guests.

    For example, if a guest gives $100, couples can pay our small handling fee themselves and receive $97.15. Alternatively, they can defer the fee to their guests. So the guest giving $100 will be charged the small handling fee, making the total $102.85. Most of our couples choose this option, as guests would ordinarily pay more on things like shipping, tax, or even gift wrap on a traditional gift. This makes it absolutely free for the couple.

    Most other cash wedding registries charge 7-10% per contribution, and don’t offer the option to defer the fee, so Zankyou truly is the best deal on the market! :)

    Thanks for the quick reply. Do you accept credit cards from gift givers?

    Also, just to confirm – there is a fee (so it’s not free) it is just a question of who pays the fee?

    Thanks!
