Zankyou Zaps Bad Wedding Gifts

1258 views 8 Comments

zankyou03I have an office full of Crate & Barrel booty, there are skid marks in my checkbook and I’ve studied the fancy patterns of way too many pink ties in the past few months. I’m getting married in 35 days, and the behemoth that is the wedding industry has beaten me down to a shell of a man.

Having Zankyou would have been helpful.

Zankyou.com is a free service for brides and grooms that lets them easily build wedding websites, but far more interesting is their creation of a virtual gift shop. Instead of feeling wed to department store registries and staple home improvement gift cards, guests and well wishers can transfer funds online that the couple can redeem for cash.

The best (and oddest) aspect of this bank-to-bank transaction as that Zankyou doesn’t collect any commission. If someone sends you $100, you get $100. On the other hand, if someone gets you a toaster, you have to return it to the store and settle for a lousy gift card.

Zankyou pairs its unique gifting system with cool gift ideas, and encourages its users to create eclectic registries of both specific gifts that are found in brick-and-mortar retail shops and even non-traditional gifts; perhaps you want your brother in law to be your designated driver the first five weekends of the NFL season. Maybe that’s just me, but write it down and make magic happen.

Zankyou has some international flare to boot, as the platform is multilangual and its users hail from Canada to Spain. There is one transaction that’s just as easy in any language – the free one – and Zankyou knows and thrives on this.
