How do I start a registry?
Step One - Log in and get started
To create your gift registry you'll need to log into your store account. If you don't have an account, you can create one here. Once you've logged into your account, you can either select "Gift Registry" from the account section or click on the "Gift Registry" link in the top right of the header.
Once you've done this click the big, green "Create Registry" button.
How do I create a profile?
Once you've got to the Gift Registry page, you'll need to complete your profile. This section contains your registrant information and your profile. You can also add a shipping address at this step.
Step Two - Create a Registry Profile
Personalise your registry with your own name, message and photo so people know it's yours and so you can share details about the exciting times ahead. You can add your own message, choose a name and add a photo. The information is controlled by you, so you can choose to add as much or as little as you like. Only you, a co-registrant (if you have one) and anyone you share the link with will be able to see these details. You can change these details at any time.
Registry Name: You can name your registry anything you like. A common registry name is "Welcoming Baby Smith"
Event Date: You can put any future date you like. Many people will add baby's expected arrival date, however we advise choosing a date slightly after baby's expected arrival date. Your registry will be automatically closed on the "event date" you choose. You'll still be able to access the registry and view items, but you won't be able to add more items to it and people won't be able to buy from it after that date, so we recommended allowing some additional time after your event date. You can change the date at any time until your registry is closed.
Message: Add a message for your friends and family to see. You may want to include details of a baby shower, mention brother's or sister's or thank people for their support.
Photo: Choose any photo you want to accompany your registry. You can change this at any time. Remember people can only access your registry if you've sent them a link.
Step 3 - Add your Registrant Information
The registrant is the person who owns this registry. Usually this is the person who creates the registry, but it could be a friend or family member on behalf of the mother to be. You must have an account to create a registry and you will access your registry through your account, so please be mindful of this, when creating a registry on behalf of someone else.
Step 4 - Add your shipping information
To enable people to send their gift directly to your specified address, please add your preferred address here. They won't be able to see your address on the registry, however it will show during the check out process as the buyer can choose to send the gift to a different address (i.e. their own address of click and collect) if they prefer.
Step 5 - Click Create Registry!
You're all done, now you can start adding to your registry!
How do I add products to my registry?
Once your registry is created, you can shop as normal on The Sleep Store website. When you're ready to add a product to your registry, simply choose the colour and size (if applicable) and click the "Gift Registry" icon on the product page.
Once you've done this, you'll see a pop up that confirms the item has been added to your registry. From here, you can continue shopping or click manage registry to edit the quantity desired within your list.
You can view the list of items you've added to your registry at any time by going to your registry and clicking "view your registered items". See more about editing your items here
How can I edit the items in my registry?
It's easy to edit your registry. Simply go to your registry and use the list to adjust quantities. Once you're happy with the quantities you've asked for click "Save" at the bottom of your list.
You can delete items anytime by clicking the "x" button at the end of the row.
You can easily add items by going to the shop and clicking the "Gift Registry" icon on the product page. Please see the question above for more details.
How can I share my registry?
Once you've saved your registry and added products, you can share your registry by clicking the "Share Your Registry" link. This will open a pop up with a unique link to your registry. You can copy the link and either paste it manually somewhere or you can click the Facebook icon to share it to your Facebook feed or click the envelope icon to email it to someone.
You can come back here at any time to share and access your unique link. People will only be able to see your registry if you have sent them a link.
How can people buy from my registry?
In order to buy from your registry, the person must have your unique registry link (see here).
Clicking on the link will open your registry and the list of items. The person can review your list and choose the quantity of the item they want to buy, by adding this in the "cart" row.
They can then click the "Pay Now" button at the bottom of the list, which will take them directly to the checkout.
The address you loaded to your profile will appear in their cart. The purchaser can change it at this point or choose click and collect. They can continue the check out process as normal.
Once an item has ben purchased the "received" column will be updated with the number of items that has been purchased.
Can I add Gift Vouchers to my registry?
No, unfortunately you can't add Gift Vouchers to your registry. Friends and family can still send gift vouchers, but they won't be included in your registry.
Will I earn SleepPoints on my registry?
You will not earn SleepPoints when creating a registry, however anyone buying from your registry will earn SleepPoints in the same way you earn SleepPoints on normal purchases. For example the buyer will receive 1 point per $1 spent (excluding shipping) and this will be added to their account. Please note the buyer must create an account to access SleepPoints.
Will the gifts be wrapped?
Gifts are not wrapped by default to safe on waste and to also allow people to wrap their own, perhaps if they are adding other items. Buyers are able to add Gift Wrapping at checkout.
Will my registry expire?
Your registry will be closed on the date you selected as the "event date" when you created your registry. You will still be able to view your registry and people can still buy from it, but you won't be able to add items to the list or edit the quantity you wish to receive. If you want to keep your registry open for longer, you can change the event date at anytime, as long as your registry hasn't already closed.
