Who should pay the fee on a cash gift?

Guests should never pay a transaction fee to give you the gift of funds. Some cash registry sites justify their high fees by saying it is "less than tax and gift wrapping on a traditional gift." This may be true, but we still find it uncomfortable to charge someone to give you money. For this reason, Honeyfund offers free, offline payment methods. And, if you choose to accept online credit card payments, we offer you the lowest transaction fees available. Guests never pay a fee.
