Gift Registry & Wish List

As you review books and other products on, you will notice that in addition to the “Add to Cart” button, there are also options to Add to Wish List and Add to Gift Registry. These two features work in a similar way. Here’s how they work.

Gift Registry

Clicking on Add to Gift Registry from the product page will put the displayed product into a gift registry. YOU ARE NOT BUYING THE PRODUCT. You are identifying that product as an item that is needed. After creating a Gift Registry, you would need to let those who might be interested in purchasing and donating the selected items aware of the registry.

The Gift Registry is accessed using the email address of the person or church/organization creating the list, so it is important that others know the email address. To review the Gift Registry list:

  • Go to
  • Click on Gift Registry at the bottom of the page under Cokesbury Services
  • Enter the email address of the person/organization with the Gift Registry
  • Click Search and the Gift Registry will be returned
  • From this point the items can be reviewed and/or selected. If the visitor wishes to purchase an item, they will do so through their own account.

Wish List

Wish Lists help you keep track of items throughout the site that you would like to purchase at a later date. You can add those items to your Wish List by clicking on the Add to Wish List button from the item product page. They will remain in your Wish List until you buy them or delete them. It's almost like a bookmark in a book or creating a shopping list for the future. It keeps you from having to search for that product again. When you are ready to purchase, Login and click on Wish List in the blue bar on the left. Click on the item you wish to purchase and then Add to Cart.
