When you are ready to withdraw your money, you will need to contact BabyLayaway. There are little restrictions on when you can withdraw your money as it doesn't necessarily have to be when you have reached your goal. However, your profile must be live for at least one month before you request for your money to be withdrawn. It will take 7 working days to process the request and a further 3 -4 working days for the money to reach your bank account. Please allow 14 working days for the full withdrawal process to be completed.
Of course, you are free to customise the profile for your new arrival as much or little as you wish. You will always be asked to choose a profile colour, which can be pink, blue or yellow. You can then update your profile picture, description and goal as many time as you need to. There is also the option to submit regular updates for your loves ones.
It is entirely your choice as to whether you choose for your profile to be public or private. For those who choose private, only the friends and family that you share your profile link with will be able to see your page. Alternatively, if you would like a public page, you can post your profile on our website fundraising feed.
Once you have created your Babylayaway profile, it will remain active for 16 months. Any funds that have not been withdrawn after the 16 month period will be lost. You will start to receive notifications as you edge closer to the cut off period to ensure that you have plenty of time to withdraw your money.
For expectant parents who set up a profile on BabyLayaway, your bank details will only need to be submitted to the site when you request to withdraw the money. For contributors, on the other hand, you can save your card to make future donations easier. However, all information will be saved and secured by a third party payment provider and not BabyLayaway. For more information on how your data will be processed, please take a look at our Terms and Conditions.
When you are ready to withdraw the money from your page, you will need to click the 'Withdraw' button on your profile. You will then be asked to confirm that you would like to bring your campaign to an end and no longer want to receive donations.
Yes, you will receive a notification via email every time that someone donates money to your profile. New donations will be visible on your profile immediately, and you will begin to see your progress bar increase.
There are two ways that you can stop receiving donations. The first is when your campaign is coming to an end and reaching the finish date that you have set. The second is after you have chosen to withdraw your money; this can be when you have reached your target, before or after.
Yes, you will still continue to receive donations after you have met your target. The only time that you will stop is either when you have reached your campaign completion date, or once you have requested to withdraw the money.
If you have set up a profile but not receiving any notifications or updates, then the email address may have been submitted incorrectly. Please feel free to contact the team at BabyLayaway, who will run through your personal details to ensure that all are correct.
