Cash Gift Registry | Photo By:ThisParticularGregImagine spending three weeks in Japan, one week in Tokyo exploring the city, looking at the underground malls, going to karaoke, restaurants, shiatsu massage and maybe a love hotel. Week two could be spent in the country, visiting a nice hot spring with all the spa treatments, exploring local legends and ancient temples and architecture. Week three will be left open. What if you run into something really fun? You’ve dreamed about it, all the things you could do, would do, if given the chance. Is your honeymoon that chance? It could be.

Maybe you don’t like land, and have always dreamed of the sea, of snorkeling or scuba diving along the Great Barrier Reef, seeing the vast array of colors and life. You dream of swimming with fish, poking at lobster and catching a glimpse of something majestic like a Manta Ray flying in graceful arcs through the water. Perhaps you’re action-based and wanted to go hunting, fishing, or climbing! Maybe your dream is hurtling to the earth in free fall from 15,000 feet. This could be your chance to do it.

Using you can create a cash gift registry that allows you to ask for exactly what you want, and have your friends and family help make it come true. Once the free registration is completed, any gift can be added to the registry, without being restricted to a certain package. It means friends and family are sending actual money to your account. They do get to choose which gift they are sending money towards, but once it reaches your account it’s yours to do what you like with.

After that, everything is complete! Wed&Wish never holds your money, it goes directly to your account. Your guests don’t have to lug gifts around, no-one pays shipping, and everyone can access everything from home on their computer of smartphone. Visit today and create your free registry. There is no risk doing so, and only a pleasant experience to gain. Congratulations and our best wishes!

When it’s cold outside, a chance to get warm and soak in a little sun sounds heavenly. You’ve probably been interested in seeing the islands for a while now and doing a little exploring sounds like fun. You love the salt air and breeze of the ocean. For all these reasons and more you’ve been dreaming of a cruise for a long time.  You know the islands you’d like to visit, and counted your available vacation time.

Dreaming of tropical sun and beaches, rum drinks and steel drum music can quickly become a mixture of pleasure and frustration for couples that imagine affording that honeymoon dream. Let’s face it, logistics are no fun.

Turn Expensive into Affordable

Of course you’ve priced some cruises out with your significant other or taken advice from a good friend, but they still seem expensive, especially on top of the wedding and other recent expenses.  That’s why a cash gift registry exists, right? Maybe you’ve looked into them, and found restrictions on what you can list, or find that the company wants to be in control of your money deciding what is authorized or not. Some might have been just too costly or confusing. Now try looking at

How A Cash Gift Registry Can Help Couples Buy A House

cash gift registry - Photo by: ThinkpanamaThe dream is happening and you’ve found your life-partner.  The ring was beautiful and everyone is happy for the new couple.  Everything is very satisfying except that one concern – finally owning your own home.

It’s tough, especially while trying to pay for a wedding on top of all life’s normal expenses. There might even be student loans raining on your parade and it seems like you’ll never be able to save enough for a down payment to finally finance your home.

Maybe you do already have your home, but with children on the horizon you need more room, funding for an addition would be more than welcome. You’ve made sketches and talked about it, but actually coming up with enough seems like a monumental task. You’re right, it is. Why not let your family and friends help you make your dreams a reality?

Wed&Wish would like to help as well. As an online cash gift registry, we help make the process a whole lot easier. Online means that anyone with the ability to access the internet can view and use your registry. Be it from a desktop, laptop, or smartphone, your friends can see what you really want for your lives together and can help make it happen.

Using a cash gift registry means that when guests are giving you a gift it’s actually cash. Gusts select one of your listed items and an amount, which is transferred directly to your PayPal account. This is what allows you to list exactly what you want without squeezing it into another registry’s available packages, or worry about someone else holding your money and deciding what you can or can’t do with it. Wed&Wish never holds or even touches your money.

Don’t worry about the expense of this sort of service either. Your registration is free, and can be browsed freely as well. The small fee for the company’s service is charged during your guest’s checkout, and is about that same as shipping would have been for the relative gift amount. Transactions are handled by PayPal, a respected and trusted industry leader.

So visit our registration page now and complete your free registry. Why not see for yourself that you can list anything you can imagine. Create a gift of a down payment or addition to your existing home and watch your guests help you make your impossible task into a dream come true!

How a Cash Gift Registry Works

What is a cash gift registry? It’s a way to get exactly what you want, with no compromises, while allowing your friends and family to experience the feeling of giving a more personal gift than a just a check in a card (even though that’s probably exactly what you want!). Create your registry with what you want, unrestricted by brand, product, location, or even price! All your guests need to do is log onto the internet, perfect for those well-travelled.

The Process

Let’s start at the top – Sign into Signing up and creating your registry is free and more excitingly, open. There are no rules or regulations dictating what you can do for your wedding. That means the trip you’ve been fantasizing about for years can be listed exactly as you dreamed it. You just break down the expected costs into manageable gift sizes. This can be extended to endless wishes and dreams, a deposit on your new home, car, interesting travel adventures,  or even to paying off your college debt if that’s what would make you happy. This is what it’s all about, making you happy.

Help With Inviting Guests to Your Registry

Once you have your cash gift registry populated, let your guests know about it in however you see best, be it a personal email, or in your printed invitations. Once they find your registry it’s a simple matter of a PayPal transaction. This is the cash part of the cash gift registry. They are selecting which gift to buy for you and how much they would like to put towards it, but you’re receiving unrestricted cash. No escrow, no lawyers, no hassle, just money in your PayPal account. Isn’t that why we love cash?

That’s it. That’s the process. You can use the money in your PayPal account whenever and however you like. Plans change, things happen and you need to be able to make adjustments. Wed&Wish’s process allows you to do so, everyone wins. You will be happier getting exactly what you want and your loved ones will like it too, who doesn’t want to help make a dream come true? So try out today and see what a modern gift registry has to offer.

Honeymoon Fund With No Upfront Fees Or Credit Cards Required

A popular article on CNN travel talks about the ins and outs of a honeymoon registry and explores the non-traditional service that allows couples to ask guests to chip in on much more exciting gifts than the standard wedding registry provides. Instead of a new mixer, guests can chip in on a balloon ride or cruise!

The article makes some good points about different types of honeymoon registries, like the fact that some are booked through travel agents that charge a fee, not to mention that for some cruises and hotels a credit card must be used to make the reservation, and the cost can’t be refunded. If the couple was planning on going anyway, it seems like less of a problem, but it’s good to be aware that there is no guarantee that guests will cover the costs.

There is a type of cash gift registry that offers no upfront fees or credit cards to get couples on their way to that Maui Beach house rental or Cruise to Grand Cayman that the article failed to mention. They are not a free service but the small fees they take come out of the gift amounts the guests pay when they choose to purchase a gift through the couple’s registry website, meaning there is no bill to pay at the end for the couples which is a nice touch.

Wed&Wish is a unique service in the cash registry industry because they are able to offer couples a measure of security that other registries can’t. They offer an added layer of security, meaning that they never touch the couple’s money. Unlike other registries that hold the couples “gifts” in their bank accounts before forwarding them to the couples (minus fees), Wed&Wish never holds any of their customers money in their accounts. They simply get permission to extract a fee when the money is on the way from a guest’s purchase to the couple’s account. This all happens mid-transaction thanks to PayPal.

Most people are never aware that companies are holding their funds and it can take days or weeks to receive their gifts. With Wed&Wish the gifts are deposited instantaneously and are immediately available for the couple to spend.

Another great thing about these types of registries is that there are no credit cards required. Couples can ask for any gift they want. Take a honeymoon cruise for example. Couples can name the gift 7 Day Bahamas Cruise. There is no need to specify the date. The total amount of the cruise can then be split into affordable gift amounts of $80.00 to $100.00 each and couples can set the amount of times a guest can choose to buy that gift.

Those that have never researched these types of sites will be in for a pleasant surprise. These types of services are becoming quite popular for modern couples who tend to be a bit less traditional. It does afford couples some exciting gift ideas and hey, it never hurts to ask right?
