Hello store partners!
As you [hopefully] know by now, we launched Wishlists for Websites a few months back to bring the list browsing experience right to your ecommerce store and since then many of you have tried the app providing all sorts of feedback and ideas. Today announcing a major upgrade which will be rolling out in just a few weeks and this is your chance for the first sneak peak at the upcoming changes. Take a look below at the major updates and when you’re done going through it all [please] chime in with your questions, comments and any last requests…
Quickly, for those who aren’t familiar, Wishlists for Websites lets you bring list browsing [and buying] right to your site with a quick to install & free to use app. So while your visitors still get the flexibility and features of a universal gift registry to keep them engaged with you, their friends & family shop directly on your site to help simplify the process and earn you a sale.
Improved Style & Experience
Every step of the process, every page, every image has been reviewed and tweaked where needed. From shorter pages [for easy scrolling] to bigger images [to keep the product in the spotlight] we’ve made our app more inviting, more useful and easier to navigate through.
New Wishlist Pick Page
Mimicking the experience of the full Giftery.me experience we’ve added in an intermediate pick page between the list and buying which brings in all the relevant details on the item and pick. Critical points like availability and shipping rise to the top while easily-accessible sharing options helps spread the word on your store and products.
New Buying Info Bar
When it comes time to buy a gift we’ve done away with the popup and now open the product page [from your site] with a permanent bar up top holding all the important pick details. From availability to notes, the shipping address and the option to update the list, it’s an easy way for gift shoppers to keep everything they need to checkout as they move along.
* Note: We used REI because they sell great stuff but this is just for demonstration purposes only; no endorsement or partnership is implied.
Expanded On Site Registration
For those looking to start a registry we’ve expanded the sign up page bringing in more options, support for weddings and concluding with a co-branded welcome message and link back to your store. Visitors can also sign up right from the List It button on your product pages… Either way works.
Wishlist Pick Management
Finally we’ve included basic management for list picks. From changing quantities to removing items, registry owners can manage what’s on their list without leaving your site.
So there you have it… Lots of changes and that we’re very excited to be getting out there but we’re also looking for those last ideas to add in so leave a comment, send us an email, write a tweet or facebook post.

For those already running our app no changes will be needed from your side and if you’d like to give it a try, just visit the store manager for instructions [it's free of course].
