Babylist is free for you and your gift-givers. Gift are purchased by your gift-givers directly from each store. Gift-givers are only responsible for the purchase price + shipping of the gifts.
The only exception to this is if you added a cash fund to your Babylist and the gift giver wants to donate. Your friends and family will see a handling fee added to their cash fund order of 2.9% plus $0.90.
All other purchases made from or through Babylist have no additional cost.
