Announcing Our New Online Store for Online Donations, Sponsorships and Purchases

new-storeWe are pleased to announce that, along with our newly redesigned website, we have introduced a new online bookstore. Our new online store can now be used for all of your online donations and online sponsorships. In the very near future, you’ll also be able to purchase Temple books, CDs and other items online. Our new store provides many benefits to you and also helps us to serve you better in the following ways:

  • Your user name will be your email, which is much easier to remember.
  • If you forget your password, you’ll be able to have it emailed to you or reset it.
  • Many have asked, and now you’ll be able to set up an automatic recurring donation.
  • Our new store will send you an email receipt for all transactions.
  • We’ll be able to show pictures of all items, which allows us to offer online purchase of our Temple photographs as well as pendant or jewelry items.
  • In the future, we’ll have the option to offer mp3 versions of our CDs, for instant download.

How to Use the New Store

Our new online store resembles most other online stores in use today. If you had an account set up in our old system, we have transferred that information into our new store, including whatever sankalpam details you had provided. Your new user name will be whatever email address you had entered in the old system. A temporary password has been assigned to you. To login and reset your password, please do the following:

  1. Go to https://bookstore.srividya.org.
  2. In the upper right corner, click on the link “My Account.”
  3. Click on the link “Forgot your password?”
  4. Enter the email address you had entered in our old system.
  5. Click on “Submit.”
  6. After 1-5 minutes, check your email and you should see an email from “bookstore” with the subject “Your password.” The email will contain your temporary password.
  7. Go back to the Login page and enter your email as well as the password provided in the email.
  8. Once logged in, you can go under “Personal Information,” click on “Change email address or password” and choose your new password.

If you did not have an account set up previously, you can easily create an account in our new store, or you can use the store without registering. When you make your first purchase, sponsorship or donation from the store, simply follow the instructions provided for entering your information. If you have any questions or need any help, please don’t hesitate to email us at bookstore@srividya.org.

As always, we would love to hear your feedback and suggestions. We now have an online Feedback Form which you can use to let us know about your experiences and suggestions at any time. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or need any help.
