The Boho Wedding Directory is a hand-picked list of all awesome wedding suppliers in the business, ready to...
Today on Boho Loves, I’d like to talk to you about wedding lists. With more and more couples living together before their wedding, the traditional gift registry has become a little redundant. Couples these days are choosing cash presents or donations towards their honeymoons, BUT there is still an awkwardness in asking for cash as a present and sometimes it can seem a bit impersonal. So today I’d like to introduce you to Zankyou, the worlds largest on line gift list service
Zankyou will let you put together your own free personalised wedding website as well as your own gift list, adding in absolutely anything you like. Guests then choose what it is they want to contribute to and Zankyou will transfer the funds they pay in to your personal bank account, giving you the freedom to list any gift you want and to use the money as you wish.
Zankyou is an online cash wedding list, where the couple can also create their free personal wedding website.
Founded in 2007, it has grown to become Europe´s most popular online wedding list. Zankyou is available in 17 different countries and in 8 languages.
In 2012, over 70,000 couples created their wedding website on Zankyou.
Couples can personalize their wedding website however they please, they can share with their guests the wedding agenda, maps, photos, videos, recommend hotels, and much more.
What made you start your business?
Zankyou was created after having seen through our own experiences that there was no wedding list and wedding webpage service that adapted to the needs of our generation; couples get married later, often live together already and frequently have guests coming from abroad.
How would you describe your style?
Non-traditional, modern, international, customer service oriented, close, personal, caring and with vast experience
What makes you different to your competitors?
Excellent customer service available in 8 different languages, Zankyou is present in 18 countries and our fees are among the lowest in the market for the service and features the couple is receiving. Guests can pay in a variety of methods for the gifts and the first transfer of funds is always free.
What sort of couple do you think you attract?
Non-traditional, international, professionals, young (21-35 years) and already living with each other.
For UK Zankyou charges a 2.85% for each gift contribution with a 0.85£ transaction fee per purchase. The couple gets to choose if they would like to cover this fee or have their guests cover this fee. If they choose to have their guests cover this fee then Zankyou’s services would be completely free for the couple.
Seeing how every day more and more couples use their mobile phone for planning their wedding, Zankyou decided to launch a free iPhone and Android app where the couple can do the following:
