My Wishlist / Gift Registry Solution
A gift registry is a great way to generate a new revenue source. Every client has at least two gift receiving occasions a year, not to mention milestone events such as wedding, baby showers, housewarming, graduation, etc. The amount of gifts received can be significan’t.
For example, there are 2.5 million wedding in the U.S. every year, and the average bride receives $14,000 in gifts. A gift registry also exposes your store and products to many new clients. The average registry receives over 100 visits from friends and family, all curious to see the gift list. Many of these visitors are potential clients.
How it works?
For your website we provide add to registry buttons and login boxes that you or your web developer install on your website. This enables registrants to build a Gift List / wishlists much the way one would add items to a web Shopping Cart. The registry resides on the application servers and we’ll add your logo, banner, and store colors to make the transition from your store to your gift registry solution as seamless as possible.
Why do I need a My Wishlist / Gift Registry on site?
With Yahoo Store, the importance of Gift Registry or My Wishlist multifaceted – as Yahoo does not have inbuilt wish lists or any similar solution. If you’re selling products that are more “gift oriented” – or your clients buy more for an occasion, you definitely want to make most out of their every visit. That is – they may not have an occasion when they’re viewing your site – but if they have one upcoming, they can use the wishlist to store your items and then you have a chance to convert that visitor into an actual buyer! Brick and mortar merchants that don’t have an online store can still use this solution.
We provide a special password protected web page that you can use to set up and administer registries for in-store clients. These registrants will still be able to share their gift list with friends and family via the web. So even if you don’t have a web site, gift givers can still make a purchase on-line. (You don’t need a website but you will still need to be able to connect to the Internet.)
By using our gift registry system you’ll save the cost of developing and maintaining your own system and also benefit from our economy of scale and experience. Over the years there has been many unique features added to make the system more convenient to use — features such as RSVP, On-line Photo Album, Guest book and E-notification. These convenient features all translate into more gift registry revenues.
