In an effort to be a greener company, while also making receiving gifts much simpler for our Registrants, we will now offer Simple Shipping. This feature will allow us to ship multiple orders going to the same address in fewer boxes. We will combine orders and gifts placed over a 2 week period into fewer boxes, and ship them all to you at once.
Can I opt-in or opt-out of this feature?
Yes, we understand that this may not be a feature for everyone and have made opting-in/out as easy as possible. You’ll just need to go to your Registry Settings and select ‘Simple Shipping’ to make these adjustments.
Are there any other benefits to opting into Simple Shipping?
Yes, when selected by your Gift Givers during checkout, their order will be eligible for free shipping without needing to meet our $45 minimum purchase requirement. Shipping surcharges excluded.
What happens if I opt-out of Babylist’s Simple Shipping?
Your orders will continue to follow our standard shipping workflow. We will still try to ship your orders in fewer boxes, but we won't hold them up for up to 2 weeks. Don’t worry, our team has worked hard to make sure your packages aren’t delayed. Delivery estimates will still be provided at the time the order is placed.
Does this mean my personal orders will ship with my gifts?
Yes, if you are opted into our Simple Shipping feature when you go to checkout with a personal order, you will have the option to ship the order immediately or allow it to be added to your next bundled shipment.
Won’t this cause a delay in getting my order?
Our team has worked hard to make sure this experience is seamless for you and your Gift Givers. By selecting our Simple Shipping option, orders may take up to 2 weeks to ship you. Your Gift Givers will still be provided a delivery estimate at the time the order is placed.
How will I know who sent what item?
Our team will do the hard work, so you and your loved ones don’t have to! Your order will still come with a packing slip that will include a breakdown of what items you received. Your Gift Tracker page will still be your best resource for checking the status of a gift, viewing your gift messages or starting a return.
Are all Babylist Shop products eligible for Simple Shipping?
No. At the time of checkout you and your Gift Givers will be notified if any items are not eligible for Simple Shipping. These non-eligible items will ship using our Standard Shipping option.
Will surcharges still be applied to my orders?
Yes, at this time we haven’t found a way to make it possible without. Shipping surcharges for Hawaii, Alaska and Furniture products will still be applied to your orders as they normally would.
