Are our gifts safe?
Completely. Buy Our Honeymoon acts purely as a wedding list creation and gift reservation service — we don’t collect or hold any money on your behalf, so your gifts are yours from the moment they’re given.
If you decide to set up online payments for your list, your guests will send the value of their gifts directly to you, facilitated by the site. We never hold your funds ourselves, although we’ll do everything we can to make the process as straightforward and seamless as possible for your guests.
Our unique Direct Debit payment system is operated by GoCardless. GoCardless is regulated as a Small Payment Institution by the FSA and is sponsored to use the Direct Debit infrastructure by the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Stripe process millions of transactions every year. They’re largely targeted at online businesses rather than individuals, so they’re less well-known than PayPal — but they get a lot of coverage in tech circles, and they’re trusted by companies like Pinterest, Kickstarter, Twitter, The Guardian, TED and Salesforce for payments processing.
Although we can monitor the status of gift payments made to your account, we cannot access these funds or obtain the details of your bank account.
We’d like to personalise our pages — what options do you have?
You can choose a design theme for your gift list and customise it with your own photos, upload pictures to gift items, format text with bold and italics, include links, and add, remove and reorder categories for your gifts. We explain how to do all these things in detail, in the help available when you sign in to edit your wedding list — and if you ever have any queries or run into any problems, we’re here to help.
When should we sign up?
Anytime!* It’s a great idea to sign up for a free, no-obligation 7-day trial to “test drive” the site and see if it’s right for you.
At any point, you can make a single, one-time payment and spend your time leisurely adding items as you think of them during the run up to your wedding.
