I’ve been looking for an open source ecom solution with a solid gift registry system that allows for customers to create gift / wedding registries with quantities for each product and inventory tracking as items get purchased.  Is this too complicated a feature for an open source solution?  Thanks!

I too am in need of a solution that includes a solid gift registry feature set. We’re using XCart now, and while they do have a Gift Registry, we have had some problems with it… and would consider a move from XCart if we could find another system that has a good Gift Registry and Gift Cards/Certificates system.

I too would LOVE a registry addition!!! The only other cart with it is x-cart. But I don’t want to move to x-cart.

Please please please!!! This would make it the most feature rich eCommerce complete!

Yes this would be a great feature as well.  We already have a Wishlist so a Gift Registry would be great to have .

I need this function so here’s how I am going about it.

1.  I am changing the WISH LIST options to read BABY or WEDDING REGISTRY. - All the titles can be changed in a variety of spots.

2. WISH LIST SHARING function already works to post a LINK in an email when the person SHARES their wish list.  I am going to create a PAGE called REGISTRY and that SHARE LINK will be posted to that page for people to see.

3. Now I just need to know how to post that link to both an email and the new REGISTRY PAGE.  It already goes one place so it should be able to be posted in two locations.

4. This will not include REMOVING ITEMS from the registry.  However, the STORE OWNER, can inform the registrant that a product has been purchased from the registry and needs to be removed.  I’m dealing with a small store.

If anyone knows how to post the link to the another page or knows of a better way, I really need the option in the next few weeks.

Thanks
Brent

Hey everyone, we are trying to find all interested parties in a gift registry to try and lower our development costs. The more parties involved, the lower we can get the license. Please PM if you are interested.

A VERY beta version is at http://www.propersetting.com, this lacks about 50% of the features we currently have in the development version.

I would like to see this feature also!

I have been invited to to tender for a new client and one of their requirements is that of a fully managed wedding registry.

Just to be awkward they also require that a ‘standard’ wish list be available also, does your solution hijack the native wishlist feature or is it an additional extension?

Have you any idea of the timescales for a production version?

As soon as you have pricing information available I would be very keen to see it!

Regards,

That sounds great! Currently, I’m setting up a website and these features would be awesome.

Do you have a tentative date for a release with the “gift registry” features?

@rpeterson:  Do you intend to make the code available or are you working on a commercial release?

Thanks

Can you please explain how the user adds products in a category ? As far as i understand he/she has only a generic link “Add to Gift List”.  At the same time he/she can has many subcategories (event types) like “Wedding”, “Birthday “…

Another question - when should the system decrease “stock” level.  When product is added to the cart ?  When customer press “Place Order”, When the order become “completed” ?

How to avoid a situation when 2 guests decide to present the same gift ?
