Hey Honeyfunders,

We have a bit of unfortunate news…it looks like PayPal is now requiring your gift givers to login or create an account to make a credit card payment. Today I checked it out and here’s what I found out:

The credit card form is exactly the same except at the end your guests will have to enter and confirm a password which will create a PayPal account for them. If they already have a PayPal account they will be asked to login exactly as before.

We’d love to hear from you whether this affects your decision to take credit card payments via PayPal. We’re considering some other options like accepting credit card payments as other registries do, and using Google checkout (which also requires an account). Your thoughts?

Howdy Honeyfunders,

Last night we discovered an e-mail glitch that we’d like to tell you about. It appears that our hosting service caps the number of e-mails that can be sent from Honeyfund.com each hour, and since we’ve grown like gangbusters this wedding season we’ve been reaching the cap several times a day. This resulted in a handful of e-mails every day that never got sent.

So, we sent the backlog last night and are following up today with those of you who were negatively affected.

Fortunately there were only four e-mails from gift givers in that bunch. We’ve replied to them now explaining the delay.

We’ve also implemented a failsafe so that if there are leftover e-mails one hour, they are sent the next.

Aye yaye yaye, the wonderful world of technology. 🙂
