For additional questions about the bank and gift cards, please see below for Gift Card Issuances FAQs.

How long does it take to recieve my gift?

Once you select 'Ship My Gift,' Poppylist has an SLA time of 72 hours to initiate the fulfillment of your gift. Once we fulfill your item, it is then up to the vendor/merchant on their standard shipping times. Please keep in mind, due to COVID-19, products and packages may require more time to be delivered due to limited transportation availability as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 impacts.

Is my contact information private?

Yes. Your information is private. We do not sell your contact information or data to third parties. Ever.

When it's time to redeem your gift, you'll have the option to select a gift card instead of the physical product if you've changed your mind.

What is your return policy?

You will have access to the order number to initiate your own return. For defective or damaged products, please contact

FAQs for The Bank & Gift Card Issuances

What is The Bank?

The Bank is your pool of funds inside your baby registry account.

How does money get deposited into The Bank?

1. You can select 'Add to Bank' on any items that have been purchased for you instead of having Poppylist fulfill and ship the physical item.
2. If an item is sold out or if there is a price discrepancy, Poppylist will automatically deposit the amount your gift was purchased for into your Bank.

How do I make a withdrawal?

From your registry, navigate to your Bank. Click the "Withdraw" button at the top of the screen, and you'll be able to select the amount of your withdrawal. Next, you'll be prompted to select a gift card to the retailer of your choice from the available options. You can come back anytime to view your gift card code and redeem for a purchase.

Can I make more than one withdrawal?

Yes! You can make as many withdrawals as you'd like from your bank funds.

How long can I keep funds in my Poppylist Bank?

There is no expiration for the funds in your Bank. Whenever you're ready to withdraw, they'll be there.

What if I can't remember how much is in the bank, or if I made a withdrawal?

Every deposit and withdrawal is documented and saved inside your account for visibility.

The gift on my baby registry is no longer available. When will I receive my virtual gift card?

On the day we confirm your gift is not available, we will deposit the value of your gift into your Poppylist Bank, accessible inside your account. When you're ready to make a withdrawl, you'll select the amount and your preferred gift card. Within 24 hours, you will receive an email that contains a link to your virtual gift card.

How much money will you issue to my gift card?

We will issue you the exact amount you request from your withdrawal.

How do I activate my gift card?

Your virtual gift card does not have to be activated, and can be used as soon as you receive it.

Do I have to use my gift card for the exact gift that was secured?

No. We understand things change, and it’s your sole discretion to apply the funds on the card as you see fit.

Can I use my gift card in a physical store?

Your card can be used in-store only if the merchant can manually enter your card information.

Are there any fees associated with my gift card?

No. There are zero fees.

FAQs for Gift-Givers

I want to bring the gift to the baby shower. Can I ship it to myself?

No. As a gift-giver, your only option is to secure an item on a registrants baby registry. We give complete control to our expecting parents and let them decide what gifts they want to be delivered, and when.

How do I search for someone's baby registry?

We respect the privacy for each registrant. To access a specific registry, you will need to request their link directly from the registry owner.

Will I receive a shipping confirmation?

No, you will not receive a shipping confirmation. Our parents choose when they want to redeem their gift. Some may not want to store a highchair for six months and prefer to receive it later— for example. So to avoid confusion, shipping details are only shared with them.

How will I know they received my gift?

Poppylist keeps track of every item purchased and redeemed from their baby registry, so no need to worry. Our parents are very thoughtful, and we’re sure you’ll receive a thank you card. We also remind them to send their gift-givers a note. After all, there’s a lot to keep track of when you’re preparing to become a parent.

Can I reserve the gift ahead of time?

Gift-givers do not have the ability to reserve a gift. This eliminates duplicate gift giving, and allows our registrants to have complete visibility into exactly what gifts have been secured from their baby registry.

Will I receive a confirmation email after I've purchased a gift?

Yes. You will receive a confirmation email right away that includes a summary of your purchase.
