The Wishlist plugin allows your customers to save their favorite products in a list.

When the plugin is enabled, you will see a heart icon (1) in your product images. The users will add the products to their wishlists by clicking on this icon.

In the plugin panel you can find different options to define how the plugin works.

How to customize the “Add to wishlist” style

In the Add to wishlist options tab, you can find all the options to customize the wishlist functionality.

  • You can choose to show or not the “Add to wishlist” button (2) in the loop (Shop page, category pages, etc.) and its position (3). If this option is disabled, the “Add to Wishlist” button will be shown ONLY on the product detail page.

How to customize the Wishlist page

In the Wishlist page options tab, you can find all the options to customize the wishlist page for your customers.

  • In the first option, you can choose which page to use as a Wishlist page (8). The plugin includes an already preselected built-in Wishlist page. If you want to use another page, you can simply choose it from the select list and make sure you insert the shortcode [yith_wcwl_wishlist] into that page.

  • If you decide to show the “Add to cart” button for the products in the wishlists, you can then choose to redirect users to the cart when they add the item to it (10), and also to remove the product from the wishlist when it’s added to the cart (11).

Advanced options

  • In the Email Settings tab, you can enable the option to send an automatic email to your customers to alert them when a product they have in their wishlists is back in stock (15). Several users save products they like but are not available in their wishlists: with this automatic email you can push them to buy.

  • Choose between different layouts for the wishlist page and for the wishlist content
  • Allow users to manage their wishlists: rename and delete wishlists, move a product from one wishlist to another, change the order of the items, the quantity, etc.
  • Enable an “Ask for an estimate” button to let customers send the content of their wishlist to the admin and get a custom quote
  • Show a wishlist widget that lists all the products in the wishlists (available also with “mini-cart” style for the header)
