How to give a gift:

Whatever the occasion, Patchwork lets friends and family collectively contribute towards a gift, experience or event. When you arrive at your friend’s patchwork page you’ll receive a welcome from them explaining what they’d like you to contribute towards. Then you can click around their patchwork to choose the things you’d like to fund, make or do.

If friends are using Patchwork as wedding registry or honeymoon fund, you just click around the patchwork to choose which items and/or experiences you’d like to treat them to. Then press FUND to add your gift to your BASKET.

You can add as many gifts to your basket as you like. And when you’re ready just head up to your basket (at the top right of the screen) where you can remove items and adjust quantities before you pay.

You need to leave your first name, last name and an email so your friend has a record of your contribution in their account. Then if you’d like to leave your address you can too - just in case your friend wants to send you a proper printed thank you.

You can leave a message along with your gift and also add a photo - if you’d like your lovely face to appear with your words at the bottom of your friend’s Patchwork.

When your friend set up their patchwork they had the option of adding their PayPal and/or Stripe account. You will know which one they chose when you get to the checkout page.

Stripe is a card payment system and PayPal enables you to pay with your PayPal account or a card.

If your friend chose stripe you can fill your card details into the box at the bottom of the page and click ‘submit payment’. You’re done! You’ll now be redirected to your friend’s Patchwork so you can see the message you left them. You’ll get a confirmation from us via email.

If your friend chose to use PayPal to collect their funds the quickest way to pay is with a PayPal account. But you can also pay using a credit or debit card. Just click the debit/credit card option when you arrive at the PayPal payment page.

PayPal will ask you to enter your card details and some basic information including your phone number, which needs to be filled out as one number with no spaces.

This makes it super easy to open a PayPal account, if you’d like one, once you’ve finished your payment. But, of course you don’t have to! Just uncheck the box inviting you to link your card to an account and complete your payment as a guest.

Once you’ve completed your payment you’ll be returned to your friends page to see their thank you message.

You’ll also receive a confirmation email from Patchwork to confirm your gift has gone through.
