The quickest method of registering a product is typically by going to the company's website and using information that identifies the specific product, such as a model number or bar code number. The registration process varies depending on the product and the company.
Registering a product can provide several benefits, including identification, rewards programs, warranty programs and personalized product information. If a registered product is lost or stolen, the registration information can serve as proof of ownership. Registering a product may also earn the user reward points with that company.
Certain companies provide additional warranty protection if a product is registered within a specific time after the purchase. Companies may also send the user information about the product or provide links to useful information about the product, such as user manuals. A user may be able to give feedback about the product during the registration process. Companies may offer incentives for product registration, such as a discount on a future purchase.
Product registration gives a company more information about its customers. It can use this information to provide better, more personalized customer service. It can also learn how customers plan to use its products and what other products the customer may use in the future.
