Every couple has a wedding registry with various items ranging in price. Some guests are more willing to splurge on gifts than others, so it’s nice to have a wide price range so each guest can purchase something within their budget.
Let’s say there is a Ceramic Bride piece on the wedding registry, but the couple is concerned about this item not being within most of their guests’ budgets.
What if the guests who aren’t willing to spend a lot of money on expensive gifts could still contribute something?
Luckily, Zola has a great option for group gifting which allows for wedding guests to contribute however much they’d like to an item of the couple’s choosing!
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Create Your Registry
If you haven’t already, create an account with Zola and start adding items to your registry!
Step 2: Manage Registry and Add Your Gift
Once you have your account, navigate to the “Manage Registry” tab across the top.
Once you’re in that tab, click the “Add Gifts” button in the center. A box will appear giving you the option to add a gift from another store. Click “Add From Another Store”.
Step 3: Add Gift From Another Store
Click once again on the “Add a gift from another store” box. It will then give you the option to either add the Zola button in your browser to quickly save items or manually enter the URL of the gift you want.
For this example, manually enter the URL to The Ceramic Bride “Shop” page.
Step 4: Edit Product Information
Once you submit your link, you will be prompted to enter more details about your gift such as the name of the item, the quantity, and the price. Fill out this information and save.
Step 5: Finalize Details
Once you see the new item saved in your registry, click on it to finalize the product details. Make sure you add an image and name the item appropriately.
Remember to select the “cash equivalent” button for an optimal guest checkout experience. You must also select the “make it a group gift” button to use the feature and allow your guests to contribute any amount towards the gift.
Tracking who bought each gift can be overwhelming. Luckily, Zola tracks all of the contributions for you so you know exactly who to thank and how much they paid!
Once a group gift is 100% funded, you can choose to ship it at any time.
