What items can I have on the gift registry?

Anything.

On DoltoneGiftRegistry you can add any items you like - from any shop or any store.

You can even add items like "honeymoon" and "house deposit", and then people can put money towards these items (to help make your wish come true).

top

How do I receive the gifts or withdraw funds?

It is quick, easy, safe and secure to receive gifts through DoltoneGiftRegistry.

As soon as guests contribute towards gifts, you can receive gift contributions by withdrawing funds.

When someone provides you with a gift of money, you will automatically receive an email from us (and so will they) with all the relevant details.

You can then choose to withdraw the money, or you can wait until later (e.g. when you receive more gifts of money). You can withdraw as many times as you like. You can then use the money to purchase anything you like.

To withdraw funds at any time, you can simply go to "My Account".

When you request a withdrawal, you will be provided with a number of payment options, and you can provide instructions on how/where you would like your funds transferred.

Note: for your privacy and security you do not need to provide any payment details when you create you registry (you only need to provide these details after you have received your gifts and you choose to withdraw).

What about shipping and handling?

There are no fees for shipping and handling, because no physical items are sent to you - instead, the contributions towards the gifts are sent directly to you, and you can then choose to use the contributions in any way you like.

top

Will I know who provided me with gifts?

Yes.

When someone provides you with a gift, you will automatically receive an email from us with the details of the transaction.

You can view your transaction details at any time, which will tell you how much money you have received from each person, the name of the person (unless they have chosen to remain anonymous) and what gifts they have contributed towards.

Are there any fees for a host?

All of the features in DoltoneGiftRegistry are FREE, except:

  • There is a small service charge, when you withdraw
