How to Add Wishlist to WooCommerce

How to Add Wishlist to WooCommerce

Customers occasionally decide not to buy an item they’ve placed in their cart. In addition, people can notice something they want but aren’t quite ready to purchase. When this occurs, potential clients may abandon your website and maybe never come back.

We can lessen the likelihood that this may occur. Customers may save things for a later time by adding wish lists to your WooCommerce store.

Visitors may add their favorite goods to a wishlist, so they can discover them easily and finish the purchase later in your store. Additionally, it makes it simple for your visitors to include their favorite things on a bridal register or other gift registries by sharing them with friends and family.

This post will demonstrate how to add a wishlist to your WooCommerce store.

Benefits Behind Adding a Wishlist to your Store

Your customers’ and visitors’ favorite goods can be saved on a wishlist. It assists consumers in keeping track of the goods they intend to purchase in the future, so they can easily locate them in the future on your WooCommerce store.

Additional justifications for how a wishlist could help your online shop are as follows:

  • Encourages sharing with family and friends.
  • For “special events” like weddings, birthdays, or Christmas, creates a relationship with your website.
  • Your wishlist user will provide you with their email address, which you may utilize for marketing campaigns, so you keep leads.
  • You may use the wishlist to determine how well-liked your store’s merchandise is.

Step 1: Install and Activate 

You must download the YITH WooCommerce Wishlist plugin before you can proceed.

Step 3: Customize the Plugin Settings

Each product will have an automated “Add to wishlist” link that customers may click to add goods to their wish lists.

You can choose which link to display after a user adds a product to their wishlist by going to the settings. For instance, you may alter the link to offer the options to “View wishlist” or “Remove from list” in place of the “Add to wishlist” button.

Customize the Wishlist link

The Loop settings and Product page settings will appear after that. On the product page, you may specify where the “Add to wishlist” button should appear.

Show "Add to Wishlist" button

It will by default appear after the add to cart button. By selecting a different position from the dropdown menu next to the Position of “Add to wishlist” on the product page option, you may change the position, though.

The plugin also includes settings for customizing the sharing button’s text, style, and color, as well as other buttons for social networking channels.

Customizing the text, style and color

Be sure to click the ‘Save Options’ button after making your desired modifications to the wishlist page settings.
