FORT LEE, N.J., June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MyRegistry.com, the leader in online gift registry technology, announces the launch of two powerful tools that enable Pinterest users to utilize their pins and pinboards to create fully functional universal gift registries. Pinterest users may now install a unique browser extension that allows anyone to conveniently add any pin on Pinterest to a universal gift registry on the MyRegistry.com platform. Members of the free MyRegistry.com service may also easily transfer complete pinboards onto their gift registries, using the company's new Pinterest import tool.
The browser extension, a free tool available on major web browsers, enhances the Pinterest experience by providing an "Add to MyRegistry" button on all pins. Users can conveniently add pins to their universal gift registries on the MyRegistry platform while browsing Pinterest. To overcome the lack of price tags on most items on Pinterest, MyRegistry.com has introduced advanced technology that automatically retrieves the prices of pins from the original websites, even if they have been re-pinned. As such, users are able to effortlessly add pins complete with prices to their own personal gift registries.
Additionally, users are now provided with a special tool to import all of their pinboards and then select en masse which pins they would like to add to their gift registries; members can add as many pins as they want, all at once. This feature also works with the automatic price retrieval, making pins from e-commerce websites viable for a gift registry. Once users have added pins to their registries, they have access to all of MyRegistry.com's advanced gift registry features, such as: the ability to register for cash, synchronize existing store registries, send reminder and thank you notes via Facebook and much more. Gift givers will be able to mark gifts as purchased, to avoid duplicate buying and users are provided with a comprehensive record of purchaser information.
"Pinterest is a wonderful space to be inspired and to collect amazing new ideas," says MyRegistry.com President Nancy Lee. "The new MyRegistry.com enhancement tools allow anyone to harvest these ideas and turn them into real gift requests. We are so excited to be offering this new technology and to be giving our members and Pinterest users even more ways to create the perfect gift registry."
The synergy between MyRegistry and Pinterest has the potential to be the perfect marriage. Just in time for wedding season, MyRegistry.com's Pinterest enhancements offer brides-to-be the optimal platform for turning all of their hard work and planning into a reality. These two brand new tools are perfect, not only for anyone planning a wedding, but also for expectant parents and anyone else who is planning a gift-giving event on Pinterest.
