How Secure Is Wedding Republic?
Security is our first priority. Wedding Republic uses 256-bit SSL (secure socket layer) certification to provide encryption between your web browser and our web server so
that personal information can be transmitted over the Internet securely.
Here’s how you can tell if a transaction is being transmitted in a secure fashion:
1. The URL area turns green
2. A lock symbol appears in the URL line
3. The address begins with “https”
You can feel confident that you and your guests’ financial transactions are conducted in a safe and secure manner.
Secure Financial Transactions
Wedding Republic uses WePay
, a PCI compliant, integrated payment gateway (also used by major brands such as Meetup, Constant Contact and others). This means
that all payments are conducted securely and the system for processing and transmitting cardholder data is compliant with PCI DSS and the Card Associate
Compliance program. Wedding Republic does not store credit card information. While this means guests would have to re-enter their information if they wish to make
another purchase, we believe those few extra moments are worth your piece of mind. You can learn more about WePay here
Flow of Funds
Once guests have contributed to your registry, the money is instantly transferred to your WePay account, which you can create upon registering for Wedding Republic.
WePay will ask you to connect your bank account so that once the funds begin to flow to your WePay account, you can withdraw them anytime prior to or after the
wedding via direct deposit (very similar to a PayPal bank transfer).
*Please note: your wedding registry will remain unpublished until you have connected your WePay account. Once connected, your registry will be published and you'll
be able to receive contributions from your guests.
