[Pro] Secure payments to a personal account

Hi everyone,

Not sure if anyone can help on this one but any suggestions are welcome.

My fiancée and I are sorting out our giftlist for our wedding, which will be partly a traditional gift list and partly asking for money towards the honeymoon.

Now, the place we’re booking our honeymoon through has not got a very good set-up, so we were thinking of asking people to send the money to us directly … I know it sounds a little vulgar but seems to be a common thing these days.

Obviously it would not be safe for us to put our bank details on a web page for all to see. Also, we don’t want to put them in the invite as that’s even more vulgar. So we were wondering if there were any way to set up a secure payment route, via our website, direct to our account?

Has anyone heard of anything like this before? Does it even exist?All suggestions are welcome :slight_smile:

There was a service called Fundable that did exactly this, now out of
business owing to a disagreement between the partners. There’s
probably another. Or there’s Paypal. You could set up a button on your
Web site with the Donate text on it. They allow you to either set a
price, or to leave the amount up to the person sending the money. The
down-side to this is that they take a hefty cut out of every
transaction, unless you are a major player and tier up to one of their
better plans.

I’d be inclined to go the PayPal route. For non business transactions
(like donations) the fees aren’t too high;

It’s also a lot safer than someone stuffing an envelope in your hand
on the big day. :wink:
All the best,
Tim.

I did something similar for a couple getting married and going on honeymoon using Mals and PayPal.

I set up the site like a shopping cart with various items like day trips etc - have a look it might give you some ideas http://www.tomnemma.co.uk/gifts/index.html

Thanks for the suggestions guys, we thought PayPal may be the way forward so I will contact them and see what they have to offer.

Thanks again.
