Frequently Asked Questions
What is a honeymoon registry?
Like a traditional gift registry, couples create honeymoon registries and list items that they would like to have for their honeymoon. Items can range from general requests, such as transportation and special meals, to more specific requests for particular tours and activities. Guests can contribute to the couple’ s honeymoon memories by sending monetary gifts for specific items. An increasing number of newlyweds now have all the housewares they need, so a honeymoon registry is the perfect way to start off their life together!
With TCI Honeymoon Registry’s’ wedding and honeymoon registries, you are free to purchase anything couples have listed! You can choose fun island-activities and tropical tours for their honeymoon or gifts that will complement their island get away.
How does a honeymoon registry work?
Couples list items that they want on their honeymoon registry. Through our simple payment system, guests can choose items that have been pre-selected and purchase them with a credit card. Guests can choose to leave a personal note or print out a matching gift card to include with the gift. Couples get email notifications with every gift purchased.
How much does it cost?
There is no cost to couples using the platform. We provide a free honeymoon registry to help couples crowd source the funding needed for their Turks and Caicos vacation.
Upon check out the gift giver is charged a 3% transaction fee plus the cost of the item purchased.
The transaction fee is charged to us by our payment processor.
How does TCI Honeymoon Registry make money?
No ads, no high fees, and all our designs are free. We’re only charging the small guest-transaction fee and retain a low referral commission from participating businesses.
All tours, attractions, activities and services offered have been rigorously vetted and all come highly rated as the best the TCI has to offer.
Why do we charge a fee?
Unfortunately, like rain in Seattle or traffic in Los Angeles, credit card fees are unavoidable. We keep our fee as low as possible while ensuring that it covers both a high level of customer service (phone and email) and honeymoon registry innovation. With TCI Honeymoon Registry’s honeymoon registries, couples have complete customization with template selection, photo options and a design for every taste.
The average cost for merchants that accept credit cards online is approximately 3%. Large online companies like Amazon.com may get lower rates but fees for Internet-based companies are always more expensive than those charged to physical stores. Combined with overhead costs, that makes our profit margin very small. However, our business model is strong.
One may ask, why accept credit cards if it is so expensive? The reason is because guests would rather use their credit card than give a check or cash because it is far more convenient.
