Wish List

Is it possible to have a log in and set up a wish list as well? This would be most helpful, especially if we cannot purchase a current item right now, yet in hopes one can purchase soon, and hopefully, if sold, that another copy will show up.


What a great idea, Kathey! I

What a great idea, Kathey! I know I can enable logins, and I'll have to consult with my sons about the best way to set up wish lists. I'd like to keep one myself....

I think I would like to subscribe to a secure site service like Verisign if the site was storing people's emails though. I've been considering it. We don't need the SSL feature since we use Paypal and we are nothing if not a real business, but I would want to make sure people's privacy was safe. If you have any more thoughts about the form a wish list should take, please email me.

Some questions that come to mind.. Would you want them to be private, or would you want me to be able to look at them and respond if I had a book or saw a good deal elsewhere?

Seems it would be best if someone could post books from our site on the list and also enter books themselves., Right?

Before the internet, people used to give dealers long lists, which they would carry around so they could get back in touch with the customer if they found something. We had a large notebook of them. That system worked well for all concerned and didn't involve an extra charge the way a book search does.
