Frequently Asked Questions

downpayment.gift is completely free to our users and gift donors. We do not charge fees to start a registry, receive contributions, or make a gift. Furthermore, the card processing fees from our banks integrations are free as well, paid indirectly by our partner lenders. Our partners indirectly pay transaction fees up to a cap, over which those fees are paid by downpayment.gift.

If a guest donates $100, you get $100. Plain and simple. We do not ask your donors, your friends and family, to... say... pay an additional $3.50 over and above. We do NOT make money from your contributions.

downpayment.gift is focused on a providing a gift registry, crowdfunding, for down payments specifically.

We're constantly on the lookout for ways to make the experience of raising a down payment easier, better, and more rewarding... so we are looking to add custom video uploads in the very near future.
