The Products Wishlist extension lets you enable your visitors to add their favourite products to a Wishlist, in case they would like to purchase them later, or even share them to friends and family.
There have been a lot of studies which have shown that allowing customers to create and manage a Wishlist can increase sales and conversion rates. What better way to encourage customers to return to your site than allowing them to save items for later, or create their own dream list of products for that special occasion? Plus, allowing your visitors to share their Wishlist on social media can open doors to new potential customers and visitors.
Here’s a video showing the Wishlist extension in action:
There are a couple of options available which you can use to let your visitors access their Wishlist.
- A Header Element, that you can freely place wherever you wish on the header section of your website
- The “Wishlist” section inside the “My Account” page.
The “Add to Wishlist” button can be displayed on the product archive pages, the single product pages or even the Quick View modal box. Here’s how it might look like on your website:
Depending on your hosting setup, you might need to flush your Permalinks cache once you’ve activated the Wishlist functionality. You can easily do so by going to Settings -> Permalinks and just clicking the Save Changes button.
