1. You start by "building" your house.
2. You create a profile for your account.
3. You will need to link your PayPal Premier account (you can create one for free if you don't have one) to your hatchmyhouse.com account.
4. Personalize your profile and determine who pays the 5.9% transaction fee. (This is the only fee. There is no sign-up fee, etc.) You have three choices:
- you always pay the fee = it is taken from the gift amount given
- the guests always pay the fee = it is added on top of the gift amount they are giving
- you give the guests the option of paying the fee = if they opt out then it is taken out of the gift amount given
5. You finalize and publish your account and then you will be given a link to give to friends and family. You will receive your gift within three days of the guests giving it.
After looking at several sites this is by far the best cash gift registry: it is the most interactive site and it has the lowest transaction fee that I've seen. I think we are going to do this!
