FAQ Setting up Wedding and Baby Registries

How does a Wishpot Registry work?
Wishpot, with the Wishpot Button (a small bookmarking tool), lets registry owners add items from any site to their registry. Wishpot also lets Registry owners set up or add charity donations, honeymoon funds, or cash requests to their Registries. Registry owners can then share their registries (through the registry URL) with friends and family, members and non-members alike.  Friends and family can then reserve items for purchase (redirected to the retailer) or contribute to a fund (re-directed to paypal).

How does a guest purchase an item from my list?
Friends and Family who arrive from a shared URL reserve items for purchase. (The reserve button is on the right of the item) Once an item on your Registry is reserved, the individual who reserved the item is then redirected to the retailer’s site for the transaction.
