Gift Registry Software Features

Gift Registries and Wish Lists
Visitors to your site can create both event-based registries (registries for events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and so forth) and Wish Lists. A wish list is not associated with a specific event and allows your customers to keep track of the items they would like to buy and forward that list to their friends and family. You control which type of gift registry is allowed through the administrator.
Proven Scalability
Registry Valet serves tens of thousands of wish lists and gift registries with more being added almost hourly. Our underlying architecture is built to handle even the most demanding enterprise class merchants while still being affordable. For very large enterprise customers, we can even setup a dedicated server with all of the power and connectivity you will need.
Easy Setup & Integration
There are 3 ways to integrate Registry Valet:
Direct using simple HTML forms and links to add Registry Valet gift registry software to your web site. Our code generator software will automatically create the code that you need to copy and paste into the pages of your site.

Plug In by using Registry Valet in combination with our catalog software. The "Add to Registry" buttons are automatically supplied with each item. This tight integration of gift registry software with our online catalog makes integrating as simple as adding one HTML link to your web site.

API Registry Valet's advanced Application Programming Interface gives you complete control of the gift registry system right from your web or store-based commerce application. Create, edit, and delete registries and registered items using your own user interface.

No Website Needed
Registry Valet's In-Store solutions mean that you don't need a website in order to use Registry Valet! You can use the In-Store Tablet App to create and manage gift registries and wish lists for your customers and they can still access them online using a computer or mobile device.
Advanced Functionality
Our gift registry software provides advanced functionality for your customers such as the ability to change the sort-order of the items in their gift registry by simply dragging and dropping the items where they want them. The software allows the bride, for example, to place her most-wanted gift items at the top of her list.
Complete Design Flexibility
Our hosted gift registry software is completely customizable which means that you can make your gift registry system look just like the rest of your web site. This seamless software integration insures that your customers will have the same high quality experience that they do on the other pages of your site.

Simple HTML, Cascading Style Sheets, and custom page layouts makes design a snap! If you have specific needs for page layout, we can accommodate them with our internal module system. You design how the pages should look and we plug our code into them to create fully design-customized gift registry software.

Registry Security
Registry Valet takes personal information security very seriously by providing a variety of security measures to protect registrants' information from unauthorized viewing:

First, when someone searches for a gift registry on your website, they must enter at leat two letters of the last name. This way, your full list of registries can not be found by simply entering each letter of the alphabet individually and clicking the search button.

Second, the registrant may choose to hide their addresses (main address, pre-event ship-to, and post-event ship-to) from anyone viewing their gift registry.

Finally, by specifying an optional "Guest Password", the registrant can secure their full gift registry including any non-hidden personal information from unauthorized viewing.

Works with virtually any cart system
Registry Valet gift registry software can be used with our own CustomCart commerce software or with almost any shopping cart software of your choice. Using simple HTML forms and links, Registry Valet can also interface with most large web e-commerce systems such as SAP, Yahoo stores, CPOnline, MIVA Merchant, Magento, Amazon stores, Shopify, Monster Commerce and many more. Registry Valet also works with most standard do-it-yourself software like osCommerce.

If you have built your own commerce system using active software technology such as ColdFusion, ASP, .NET, or PHP, Registry Valet will easily integrate with your system!

Web-Based Administrator
Manage your gift registries and wish lists with our easy-to-use administrator. Create, edit, and delete registries and manage all options and settings with the simplicity of a web-based, icon-driven managemen system.

Why a Gift Registry?

Increase Sales
FACT: Adding bridal or gift registry software to your website can dramatically increase sales. When a registrant selects your website to register for their special day, they will, in effect, become a marketing representative for your company and products.

Using Registry Valet's "Forward List to Friends and Family" feature, the bride (or gift registrant) will send a link to their gift registry on your website to likely buyers. Many of these buyers will not have even heard of your site before, but based upon their recommendation, will place an order.

A More Professional Appearance
The internet today is flush with commerce web sites, many of which carry exactly the same products that you do. By offering a gift registry or wish list to your customers, you set yourself apart from the rest and present a more professional appearance.

Increase Customer Loyalty
Buyers who find your site as a result of someone else's recommendation are much more likely to buy from your site again because of this endorsement.
By adding gift registry software to your commerce web site, you will build customer loyalty and increase your repeat customer business.

Increase Traffic to Your Web Site
Viral marketing (word-of-mouth advertising) is the holy grail of internet retailing. By allowing customers to register with your web site and tell all of their friends and family, they spread the word about your site and your products. Take advantage of viral internet marketing by adding our gift registry software to your web site today!
