For PayPal redemption requests, only the email address that was first registered with SimpleRegistry can be used. Each individual gift/contribution to the Member is available for redemption after a 72-hour waiting period. For more information on gift/contribution redemption policies please see "Common Questions".
- Gift/Contribution Refunds
Upon the completion of a gift/contribution given to a SimpleRegistry Member, there is no refund immediately possible. SimpleRegistry has sole discretion to determine the validity and response of a return/cancellation request. SimpleRegistry encourages gift/contribution givers to submit a support ticket on our contact page (https://simpleregistry.com/wedding/contact/) or call 888-817-2322 if there has been an error regarding the amount of the gift/contribution or the SimpleRegistry Member for whom it was intended for.
- Disputed Gift/Contribution(s)
If a gift/contribution giver disputes a valid charge from SimpleRegistry and the Member in question still has the disputed gift/contribution(s) as part of their current balance, the value of the gift/contribution along with a $30.00 chargeback fee will be deducted from said Member balance. If the Member has no current balance, the disputed amount plus chargeback fee will be held back from any future gift/contributions they may receive. SimpleRegistry LLC will contact the gift/contribution giver in an effort to rectify any situation involving a disputed gift/contribution(s).
- Closing Your Account

Disabling a registry removes the registry page and eliminates the registry both the search and directory.
