How much does it cost? It's free!
Honeyfund is totally free! There are no transaction fees for couples or gift givers and no setup fees. This is possible because gift givers are directed to send the money to YOU, by cash or check. We don't handle any gift money here at Honeyfund.
In addition to the free service:
1. We offer upgrade packages including your choice of design templates, photo slideshows, photos next to your registry items, and more. Packages start at just $19.99.
2. You may accept online payments from your gift givers via our integrated credit card solution powered by WePay (US only), or via your own PayPal account.
- WePay fees: 2.8% + $0.30
- Paypal fees: 2.9% + $0.30 (US)/transaction. Add 1% cross-border fee for payments coming from outside your home country. Learn more and sign up.
You can accept credit card payments with both free and upgraded Honeyfund accounts. Honeyfund couples who accept both offline and online payments pay average fees of just 1.8%! Guests never pay a fee.
Is Honeyfund just for honeymoons? No!
Honeyfund can be used for any type of cash wedding gift! Raising money for a down payment? Registering for a "big ticket" item? Need funds for starting off? Do you have another savings goal? You can put anything you want on your Honeyfund!
Not having a wedding? Fundraising, crowdfunding and all-occasion cash gifts are available at our sister site, Plumfund.com.
Is Honeyfund.com safe and secure for me and my guests?
Rest assured all personal info and gift money is safe and secure. Your money travels directly from gift givers to you, either offline or via your own WePay or PayPal account, so we don't handle money here at Honeyfund.
Honeyfund's secure servers keep your private info safe, and personal info is never sold, rented or shared.
Honeyfund has also been awarded an A grade by Better Business Bureau's Online Reliability program.

How do I book my travel?
With Honeyfund, you make your own travel arrangements and then receive monetary gifts from your guests to help you pay for the costs of travel.
Can I have other gift registries and a Honeyfund?
Yes! In fact many couples have a Honeyfund in addition to a traditional registry or two. A house wares registry is nice for bridal shower gifts. And this way your guests have plenty of choices. You can even link your other registries to your Honeyfund page.
How do we receive our gift money?
Here's the best thing about Honeyfund: All your gift payments come directly to you from your gift givers! We keep our service free by avoiding credit card processing fees. That means we never handle your money. Instead, your gift givers are instructed to pay you directly by cash or check. They can either mail you their payment or present it to you at a shower or at the wedding, along with their Honeyfund gift certificate.
If you prefer to receive credit card payments, we offer two low-priced options via secure payment partners. See the next question for more information.
How do the credit card options work?
Honeyfund integrates with secure payment processors to enable credit card payment for your guests. Here's how it works:
- Guests pay quickly and easily.
- You pay just 2.8-2.9% + $0.30 for online gifts (offline payments are always free!)
- Two easy steps enable credit card payments
- To withdraw, choose electronic transfer or paper check. No withdrawal fees!
Setup your Payment Settings now. Honeyfund couples who accept both offline and online payments pay average fees of just 1.8%! Guests never pay a fee.
What if we don't receive enough money from our Honeyfund?
You'll want to think about how many guests are attending that might be open to contributing to your honeymoon and do a rough estimate. Most likely people will surprise you with their generosity. Just make sure you get the word out by notifying guests of your Honeyfund. And most importantly, make sure you have backup plan in case you don't receive enough to cover the entire cost of your honeymoon.
Is Honeyfund easy for my guests? What if my guests aren't Internet savvy?
Honeyfund makes it easy for wedding guests to purchase your gift. They simply select a gift from your Honeyfund web page, enter their name and e-mail address, and follow the simple payment instructions. They even receive a purchase confirmation e-mail along with a reminder to make payment if they haven't already.
While we think this process is pretty simple, we realize some people just aren't Internet savvy. We suggest these guests contribute money directly to you, or find someone else to make a Honeyfund purchase on their behalf. When you sign up, you’ll designate a contact person (like a bridesmaid, groomsman or family member) who can answer guests' questions about how to contribute and offer assistance if needed.
Finally, it's never a bad idea to have a small traditional registry for those guests who prefer to shop in store.
How is all this free?
Honeyfund was started with a vision: A free online honeymoon registry with no strings. So how do we do it?

Revenue from this program and minimal site advertising supports Honeyfund's free service. Packages start at just $19.99.
