Register for anything - anywhere:
Any item from any store on one registry. Even add non-tangible stuff like cooking classes, indoor skydiving sessions, or a donation to your favorite charity. When your event is over all gifts are redeemed as cash for the ultimate in flexibility. Newer model of that camera you registered? Want a different color of that blender? No problem!
Pricey items to smaller portions:
Let's face it, there probably aren't many people that will buy you that awesome $2,000 camera all on their own. However, we can tell you have at least 20 friends (you have a kind face) that would be willing to chip in $100 each. We make it easy to allow for group-gifting at whatever levels you desire.
Kick-ass tools for easy setup:
Add any item on any website (like Amazon.com or Target.com) with just one-click using our SimpleAdder tool. Scan barcodes or take quick photos of items on-the-go with our free Mobile App. Don't have time for either? Use our Instant Registry feature to go from zero to complete registry in under 30-seconds. Use one or all of these great tools in combination.
Let others suggest cool items:
Why should you have to think up everything you'll need on your registry? Let your friends & family help! They get a custom version of our SimpleAdder tool and can suggest great items they already love. You have complete power over which suggested items to add – and which to ignore.
Saying "thank you" made easy:
Your mom was right: you should write a nice "thank you" note. We track all your gifts, who gave them, and the contact info for each giver. You can easily keep tabs on whom you've thanked already, and who still needs a note (hand-written is always best). And if you're the paper-type, you can easily generate and print a checklist with the full details. Read less

Registries are great, but the disadvantage to some of them are that you are only limited to their products. And sometimes starting five different registries isn't the most convenient. So, for instance, say you're registered at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and REI, but want tools on your registry (which neither really have). Instead of starting a whole new registry at Home Depot or ACE Hardware, where you'll maybe only register for very few items (this could be for any business), you can register with SimpleRegistry and add the little odds and ends from different places all together! It's a great place to convene all those random items you want.

I ended up really loving SimpleRegistry, but I would make sure that you know how it works before going into it and decide if that's how you want to do it. I wasn't 100% clear when I set up my registry that you receive the money value of your gifts instead of the actual items, and then you have to purchase your gifts on your own. I wish I had known that going into it because some of my guests were really confused when they didn't have a shipping option and then felt confused if we even received it or if it worked. I felt bad that my guests couldn't surprise us with the gifts because I ended up buying it on my own, but I just shipped the gifts to them so they could still wrap them and give them to us at the wedding so it worked out fine in the end. The only thing I would fix is that the price that your guests pay doesn't include shipping, and if the item price changes it doesn't reflect in SimpleRegistry. I ended up having to pay a couple hundred dollars of my own money for my gifts due to high shipping costs or because the item was priced higher when the guest actually purchased it versus when I added the item. Other than all of that it's a great concept and I love the option to be able to buy experiences or donate a money gift for a honeymoon or something. Just best to know how it works before going into it. :)

Simple Registry was easy to use. I was able to register for items at stores that don't even offer a registry! This also encouraged people to provide gifts of cash; super helpful for two people combining households with kids.

This is a great service and we would definitely use it again. It is so user friendly and it looks great! The 5% total fee is a little rough, but we were willing to pay it in lieu of setting up a website ourselves and using paypal or asking people to send checks. This is easier for the gift giver and receiver.

We wanted to register for money so we could replace our flooring. How the heck do you do that when we were not totally sold on color style at the time we set up the registry? SimpleRegistry provided an answer for us to both display an idea of what the flooring we were considering, plus, it was so easy to set up and redeem gifts. I thought people would be upset by the service fee (we decided to split the fee), but we made a disclaimer on our weddingwire site and no one seemed to have issue with it. I would recommend the site.

Be sure to read and understand the full details of how this gift registry website really works. If not you may end up with 0 gifts, and a check worth less than your gifts are worth at the end of it all. I would NOT recommend this website.

Dear SimpleRegistry Member,

I am sorry you did not have a great experience with SimpleRegistry. We are definitely not a traditional registry and do our best to describe our company as a flexible, cash registry throughout SimpleRegistry.com. All of our couples receive their wedding gifts in the form of cash gifts towards registered items and experiences and then purchase those items or experiences when they are ready. I shared your review with everyone in our company to determine if there is a better way to share this information with prospective customers in addition to the language on our homepage, common questions, video tutorial, and terms of use. We do have a service fee to help pay the credit card companies when a gift is given (up to 3%), to pay our customer service team, and keep the lights on! If we did not have a service fee, this company would not exist. I'm so sorry you had this experience and did not know SimpleRegistry was a cash registry. Please reach out to me at brandon [at] simpleregistry [dot] com so we can work together to come up with a solution. Best Regards, Brandon Warner Co-founder SimpleRegistry Register anything, anywhere.

The greatest thing about Simple Registry is that you can create a registry of items from anywhere and put it all on one list. The downfall is the "delivery" of the items. Either the person who created the registry has to go to each individual store to pick up the items or you can receive a check for the value of the items purchased. NOT convenient. What we ended up doing is getting the check then buying the items on the store's website.

SimpleRegistry Wedding Registry responded with the following comments:

Thank you for sharing your feedback and I apologize SimpleRegistry did not meet your expectations. As you indicated, SimpleRegistry is a cash registry. We believe in giving our couples the most flexible registry system where they can add any item or experience and then purchase the item or experience when they are ready.

I am so sorry this was not clear to you during the sign up process. I have reached out to our team to make sure all new couples are fully aware of how SimpleRegistry works. If you have ideas on how we can better educate our couples on the gift redemption process works, please email me directly at [brandon][at][simpleregistry.com].

Best Regards,
Brandon Warner
