Transferring Your Pottery Barn Registry to Joy

Ready to kick your gift registry up a notch? Transferring your Pottery Barn registry to Joy means simplifying your gift management. Joy will swoop in and transfer all your listed Pottery Barn items to the Joy site, allowing you to add, update, remove, and track items inside your Joy website.

Getting started

  • From the Registry page, click the ‘Gifts’ tab.
  • Under the External Registry section, click ‘Connect a Registry’ and select Pottery Barn.
  • Add your Pottery Barn registry link and click ‘Get Started.’
  • While Joy connects to Pottery Barn, take a moment to perfect your surprised look for the inevitable quirky gift from great-aunt Clara. Her presents are always one-of-a-kind!
  • Click ‘Next’ then ‘Move Registry to Joy.’
  • And just like that, your Pottery Barn registry is now transferred to Joy!

Turning your external Pottery Barn registry off

Congratulations on moving your entire Pottery Barn registry to Joy! To ensure a seamless gift-giving experience (like not receiving duplicate Brass Champagne Sabers), it’s crucial to turn your Pottery Barn registry off on their website.

  • While logged into your Pottery Barn account, go here.
  • Click on ‘Manage My Registry.’
  • Tap ‘Edit’ next to ‘Optional settings’ then select ‘Private’ from the dropdown.
  • Click ‘Update Registry’ and you’ll be all set.


Adding an item from Pottery Barn post-transfer

Imagine you’re perusing the Pottery Barn website after transferring your registry to Joy, and you spot a Brass Champagne Saber that you can’t live without. Instead of adding it to your Pottery Barn registry, you’ll need to add it directly to Joy.

There are 2 ways to do this:

Using the Quick Add Button

  • Add the Quick Add Button to your browser bar (you can learn how here).
  • Find that new must-have item.
  • Click ‘Add to Joy’ in your bookmarks bar.
  • If given the option, select a photo and click ‘Add Gift.’
  • Tap ‘Go to registry’ to view the new item on your Registry page.

Manually adding the item

  • Copy the Pottery Barn URL for the item.
  • While on the ‘Gifts’ tab, scroll down and click the ‘New Gift’ button.
  • Select ‘Add Item.’
  • Add the item URL and tap the ‘Add Gift’ button.
  • Scroll down for a glimpse of your future Brass Champagne Saber.

Ta-da! Your Pottery Barn registry is now part of the Joy family. Managing gifts has never been easier!
