FORT LEE, N.J. and HERNDON, Va., Dec. 6, 2010 --
MyRegistry.com(R), the leader in online gift registry
technology, today announced the integration of its Universal
Gift Registry solution with the Network Solutions(R)
nsCommerceSpace(TM) platform. Now, when Networks Solutions
ecommerce merchants place the highly customizable MyRegistry
Universal Gift Registry widget on their product pages, their
customers can easily add items to a one-stop registry. This
solution benefits ecommerce merchants, their customers, and
the buyers who visit MyRegistry.com to select a gift.
"We are excited to make our Universal Gift Registry solution
available to Networks Solutions merchants," says Oded
Berkowitz, founder and CEO of MyRegistry.com. "Ecommerce is
getting more popular and competitive every day. Our
Universal Gift Registry solution provides online retailers a
much sought-after, sophisticated and affordable tool that
markets their products to the multi-billion-dollar gift
industry. It's an honor to work with Network Solutions, as
our company is dedicated to continue to provide the best
online gift registry experience in the marketplace."
The "Add to MyRegistry" widget, which can be customized to
look like part of the merchant's website design, is a
sophisticated tool that provides full gift registry
capabilities for an enhanced customer experience. The
customer who clicks on the widget can easily add a favorite
product to the centrally located gift registry at
MyRegistry.com. Anyone who then visits that customer's gift
registry at MyRegistry.com can select the favorite product
and complete the purchase at the merchant's website hosted
on the Network Solutions nsCommerceSpace(TM) platform.
"Universal gift registration is an enhancement our merchants
have expressed an interest in offering to their customers,
so we're quite pleased to be able to provide it on such a
comprehensive and affordable level," commented John
Steedman, product manager for Network Solutions. "It's good
for their business, since it will expose any participating
ecommerce store to a new market of potential buyers, and it
also benefits online shoppers who can easily purchase
registered gifts and discover new places to shop online."
Merchants who subscribe to the gift registration service can
track items that were added to customers' gift registries
and track associated purchases. Merchants also gain access
to an array of advanced tools for their customers, including
