9. Now or Later
Couples are in complete control of their gifts with Zola. For every gift, couples are able to choose whether they would like to have the items shipped, held in storage for later or even if they would like to have the item(s) exchanged virtually. Talk about streamlined! We can’t think of a better way to manage registry gifting.
