Other common questions

How do I delete my registry?

Find the Info box on the right side of the Registry page and click Edit. You can delete your registry using the link in the bottom right corner of the overlay that appears.

Please note that deleted registries cannot be restored.

What does it mean if items are “unavailable" on my registry?

If an item on your registry is unavailable, it has either sold out, expired, or otherwise been removed from the site.

Unavailable items are not visible on your public registry, but you can still see them on your individual Registry page.

Will sellers know that a purchase is from a registry?

Yes—items purchased from a registry are noted on both the buyer and seller receipt pages.
