High Level of Security
By using Hatch My House (HMH) as your gift or wedding registry, you take advantage of PayPal to receive money gifts, reaping the benefits of being aligned with a 10-year money transfer service business and a built-in security infrastructure, which includes data encryption and fraud prevention tools.
It's also more secure and convenient than collecting and depositing checks. Often checks get lost or misplaced if mailed or given in person at an event. By making a gift online, it's immediate - just a few clicks away from your bank account!
Lower Transaction Fees
Only 5.9% & includes the PayPal fee!
You'll also benefit from lower transaction fees in comparison to other gift and wedding registry sites. If you look around, you’ll notice that many gift and wedding registry sites charge visitors as much as 10% per gift! Because we’re fully integrated with PayPal, we make it easy for users to receive gifts and inexpensive for visitors to donate money! The Hatch My House fee is 5.9% (which includes the PayPal fee).
Not only does HMH offer a low transaction fee, but we give you the option to:
- Pay the fee
- Have your guests pay the fee
- Allow your guests to choose to pay the fee or not (90% of them do!)
We recommend allowing your guests to choose to pay the fee or not. It empowers them to know they have the option to opt out if they wish. At the same time, many more (90%!) do not mind adding the small fee atop their gift, so they choose to pay it. Save money, save time and get something with real value: a home of your own!
