Creating, adding to and editing your greedy books

How do I create a greedy book?

Very simple. These are the steps you need to follow to create a greedy book:

  • 1. First of all you need to , or create an account.
  • 2. Then click on the ‘add’ button at the top of your screen, select ‘create a greedy book’ and follow the instructions.

How do I add items to my greedy book?

There are two ways to add items to your greedy book. Remember you need to or create an account first.

  • 1. Using the Greedy Button: This makes it easy to add things you love to your greedy books from any online store in just two clicks. Once installed it lives on your browser bar, just click it whenever you see something you want. Click here to install it.
  • 2. Copying and pasting the item’s URL: Click here to add an item by copying and pasting the URL link from any item.

You can of course also add items to your greedy book from our favourite finds, click here to check them out, or you can have a root around your friends greedy books and steal ideas directly from them!

Can I change the image of an item I'm adding?

This depends on the retailer you’re adding the item from. Some will supply lots of images for you to choose from, you can browse through them using the arrows under the image. However, some retailers only give you one image, and some don’t make their images available at all, so you might not be able to add an image.

If you’ve already added the item to your greedy book we’re afraid the image is set, the only way of changing it would be to delete and then re-add the item choosing a different image.

I want to add an item, why is there no image available?

Most of the time the Greedy Button will happily identify the correct image, or offer a selection you can choose from. But there are some retailer sites that are built a bit unusually and don’t make their images available.

Click here to let us know if you find a site where this happens, and we’ll do our best to get it sorted quickly.

What if I want to add more than one of the same item?

Sometimes you might need more than one of something. At the moment the best way to do this is to add it multiple times to your greedy book. So let’s say you’d like 6 glasses, you need to add the glass 6 times to your greedy book. This will mean friends don’t have to buy you the whole set, they can just buy you what they can afford leaving the rest for some other generous gift buyer.

How many greedy books can I have?

As many as you like! The more the merrier.

Can I edit the title of a greedy book?

Of course. Just click on the ‘settings’ button under any book in your library.

Can I edit the title of an item within a greedy book once I’ve added it?

Absolutely, just click the edit icon to the left of the image on the item page. You can change the title, description and price here.

Can I delete a greedy book?

Yes indeedy. Just click on the ‘delete’ button under any book in your greedy library.

Can I delete an item from my greedy book?

Absolutely. If you feel an item isn’t right, just click the cross in the top right corner of image.

Can I make a public greedy book private?

No problem, just click on the ‘privacy settings’ link within the greedy book, just under the title. You can change the status to private or public here.

 

Buying items through the Greedy Book

How do I buy something?

To buy something from your own, or someone else’s greedy book, just click the ‘view now’ button on the item page. This will take you to the retailers website where you can get more details and buy the item. They will arrange the payment and delivery. Remember to let us know if you’ve bought it by coming back to the Greedy Book and marking the item as purchased, we wouldn’t want the person you’re buying for to get an item more than once.

How do I track a delivery, make a return or query a price for an item in a greedy book?

The Greedy Book isn’t an online store and doesn’t sell products directly. The items you see on the Greedy Book are all sold by individual retailers, and your purchase is made directly from them on their website. Each one of these retailers will have their own terms and conditions and privacy policy. So you should ask the individual retailer any questions about products, orders, availability, pricing, charges, delivery or returns. To find the retailer just click on ‘view now’ beneath the item image and it will take you to the retailer’s website.

Someone's bought an item off my greedy book, why hasn't it disappeared?

Ah, good question, it’s not actually meant to disappear. When someone buys you a gift they will mark it as bought to make sure that no one else buys you the same thing. However, because we’re ol’ romantics at heart and don’t like ruining the surprise, we don’t let you see that. Of course, if you try and buy it yourself we’ll step in and mention that it might already be on it’s way, after all we don’t want you to buy something you’re already getting!

If I buy an item from someone's book will they be able to see it's been bought and from me?

We don’t want to ruin any surprises, so they won’t be able to see an item has been bought unless they try and buy it themselves, after all we don’t want them to buy something they’re already getting! We definitely won’t tell them it’s coming from you though.

I've said I bought an item by mistake, what should I do?

Don’t panic! You just need to click on the ‘unmark as bought’ button to the right of the image on the item page.

I'm trying to buy an item but its out of stock, or not available in their size, what should I do?

Unfortunately because we don’t sell any of these items directly there’s nothing we can do about this particular situation. We’d recommend you check with the retailer to see when they might be getting the item back in stock, or search online, there maybe another retailer that sells the same thing. If you do that don’t forget to come back and mark the item as bought so no one else buys it for them.

I've clicked on the 'view now' button but the link to the retailer doesn't work.

Well that’s embarrassing, we’re so sorry. This may mean the item is out of stock, and the retailer has deleted the page. Or it may mean that the retailer has just changed where things live on their site, and this means links that once worked no longer will.

The best thing to do is to search for the item on the retailers website to see if the page has just moved.

 

Receiving gifts

How can I be sure that I won't get the same item twice?

Good point, no one wants three of the same hat for Christmas. We ask generous gift givers to mark any items they buy you as bought. This will stop someone else buying you the same item. However, because we don’t like to ruin the surprise, you won’t be able to see what’s been marked as bought on your own greedy book, unless of course you try and buy it for yourself, in which case we’ll let you know, we wouldn’t want you buying something you’ve already got coming your way!

Remember if you buy something from your own greedy book to delete it, so no one else buys it for you.

 

Sharing and viewing a greedy book

How do I find someone's greedy book?

Looking to buy someone a pressie eh? You’ve come to the right place. Just type their name into the ‘search users’ field at the top of every page. If you can’t get into their greedy book it’s probably because it’s private.

How do I share my greedy books?

All you need to do is click into the greedy book you’d like to share and click ‘share this book’ on the top right. From there you can share it by email, Facebook or Twitter.

If your book is private but you choose to share the link, this will override the privacy setting for anyone who receives the link you send them. This is a great way of just letting a few people see your book.

Is it possible to limit the people that see my greedy book?

Definitely. The best way is to make the book private. You do this by clicking on the edit pencil within your greedy book and selecting the private option. If you make a book private you can still share it with just the people you want to take a sneaky peak, just click on ‘share this book’ and send them the link, because it’s come from you they’ll be able to view it.

Do the people I share my greedy book with have to be members of the Greedy Book?

No they don’t. If you have shared your book with friends via email, Facebook or Twitter they will be able to view it and buy from it even if they are not full members of the greedy book.
