This allowed us to have a honeymoon fund and building on it from the engagement to the wedding. If I didn't want something that I originally thought I did, I could cash out on it. So perfect for two houses combining and not having gone through storage prior to registering. Recommend this!

So easy to use for a baby registry. All of our guests said it was very user friendly and gave them the option to contribute as much or as little as they wanted. Great site!

We honestly loved this registry. As couple who has lived together for the past five years we have acquired many of the things you would find on a traditional registry. This registry allowed us to have a place our guests could go to for gifts without ever having to go to the store. Our guests loved this option! The only downside is that they take out a fee from each gift after the person gives it. I understand there is a fee to run this service but I almost wish the guests who gave gifts knew that. I understand why they do it that way so that the guests don't have to feel like they are being charged to give a gift. So in the end I totally get it. Overall easiest and best registry experience! We would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone !

Everything about this website was easy - easy to add items to the registry, easy to edit, and easy to cash out funds.

Simply Registry is perfect for couples who want to ask for large gifts or experiences instead of smaller household items. For example, we asked for a canoe and split it into several shares so different people could contribute to one larger gift. We were also able to earmark cash for experiences, such as a fancy dinner on our honeymoon. Everything was secure and our gift money was easy to transfer into our account.

Simple registry made it easy for our guests to get us useful and beautiful gifts. We had a lot of guests traveling a great distance to make it to our wedding and they really appreciated not having to lug around a present.

Very quick and easy to set up registry items in a matter of minutes. You can even use images from a library they have available, which was handy for us because all of our items were basically placeholders for an upcoming trip (like breakfast in bed, romantic dinners excursion activities, etc.) If you've got specific items from retailers you can add those very easily.

Maybe there's an ad-supported option you can offer customers? Just so people don't *have* to forfeit their gift money. It feels very un-gratifying to get some percentage instead of a nice whole number, psychologically.
Or maybe just have a flat membership fee that the registrant pays upfront?
Also, I opted for my money to be paid via PayPal. I believe PayPal also charged a fee. You should warn customers of this. I would've certainly opted for a check if I knew PayPal would skim off the top as well.
Won't use your service again—or recommend it—as a result of these fees. Perhaps if you made some changes, I would.
It's too bad, because the concept is good, and the service is helpful. It won't be long before a competitor solves the fee problem and steals the market. Just a thought.

Great platform, but it's expensive

Cool idea, smooth interface, easy to use, but they do take a pretty large cut.
Review by StephenEvans Jevel3 years ago
We liked how SimpleRegistry dealt only with money and we could go out and buy the items ourselves, especially because we weren't sure where we were living and now we're living in a small space that may not be able to fit everything at once. Just be aware of the small fees they charge for each contribution.

Our friends and family loved the opportunity to gift my husband and me with activities, memories and unique gifts rather than another coffee pot. We were given horse back riding, jeep tours, mountain bike rentals and more! It was such a cool experience!
Review by Tekishaia3 years ago
It was easy to set up, easy to retrieve the payments. The browser link was also simple to work with I dont know how hard was it for our guests to set up the payments so can't comment on that. I guess one addition that you can incorporate is to actually buy the stuff linked with money allocated, though I guess that would require additional prod dev on your side. Its just a thought.

Loved this service.. It worked out really well. My husband and I were pleased.
Review by Wittmeier Zerbe3 years ago
We did a department store registry with some needed items for those who would like to purchase a gift that way. But we also wanted some way for guests, if they'd like, to contribute to a very expensive heirloom quality grain mill for the kitchen. SimpleRegistry was the ideal solution and everything went smoothly. We purchased our mill thanks to everyone's generosity! I wouldn't use this registry for many smaller items since you need to keep track of spending the money according to its designation. However, for one or two pricey items, I would recommend it!

SimpleRegistry is just that - simple! It's easy to use and gives you everything you need in one place. We were able to make our registry what we wanted without worry! I highly recommend SimpleRegistry.com

Love the ease of use and simplicity of SimpleRegistry- highly recommend it.
Review by Yata3 years ago
We thought the experience went very well. The only negative thing that we could say is that it was confusing for a lot of people on how it works. They're not used to online cash registries, especially the older generation, and we feel that had an effect on how many people gave gifts. If there was a short video (15-30 second animation) explaining how it worked that would have helped a ton I feel

The registry is easy to set up. It is straightforward to use as guest as well. The check arrives in a promptly manner as soon as the registry is closed.
Review by Benedictha Vinetti3 years ago
SimpleRegistry worked well for us. We found it easy to use and manage as well as fun for us and our loved ones. If the need were to arise for someone I would recommend this site. My one concern would be there are too many mailed items. Perhaps I could have changed that option and chose to not receive anything in the mail but in my opinion that is what the default option should be. Instead we received a lot of unnecessary physical mail as I was also emailed with notifications as appropriate. This is the only thing that I can think of to critique. Thanks.
