Whether it’s through Amazon, WooCommerce or another platform entirely, a wishlist gives your audience the opportunity to record their most coveted-after items in a simple list. WordPress wishlist plugins let you easily add this functionality to your site and allow your viewers have quick links to their favourite products. Then, if they choose, your audience can later add their wishlist items to their shopping cart, making their time on your site more user friendly. Here’s a list from us at WP Carers of the 7 Best Wishlist Plugins for WordPress.
1. Wish Pics – Wishlist Plugins
Wish Pics provides users with a very visual way to create an Amazon wishlist. The wishlist is displayed in a grid format with pictures of each item shown instead of there being text describing it. One possible downfall is that this plugin will only work if the Amazon Link plugin is also installed. Wishlist settings include wishlist name/ID, thumbnail width, thumbnail height, array width, public access and access level.
This plugin allows you to add an ‘Add to Wishlist’ button on every product detail page. Users have the option to add products to their shopping cart from their separate wishlist page, or to remove them from wishlist. This increase indirect sales, especially around holidays as people search for their loved one’s wishlists. Wishlists can also be shared on social networks. YITH is compatible with WPML and available in 18 languages.
Sortable Amazon Wishlist uses a widget to display your Amazon wishlist sorted in whatever order you wish, including by priority (unique to this plugin!). The widget appears for use in your sidebar. This can result in more traffic and ultimately more customers!
This is another Amazon wishlist plugin, but this one allows you to earn an Amazon associates fee while increasing your own traffic. Amazon Associates Wishlist requires some configuration before use, but detailed instructions are provided on the WordPress plugin directory and the plugin works well once installed and configured. This plugin automatically updates every hour so that new items you have added to your wishlist will be recognised.
Delicious Wishlist for WordPress is a unique plugin ideal for bloggers. You can display a wishlist on your WordPress site using your Delicious bookmarks and hope that your readers feel generous! When you see something you wish to add, bookmark it “wishlist”. Then, add another bookmark to denote it’s importance. When you have received the item, you can remove the rating bookmark but keep the “wishlist” bookmark to keep a record of all of your wishlist items.
This plugin lets you find your Amazon wishlist and display it using a widget. The widget lets you customise your wishlist from your WordPress page as you display it. Easy Amazon Wishlist is available in 7 languages and compatible with all localised Amazon domains. You can customise the layout of the widget by specifying which elements appear and by setting a title character limit.
Amazon Wishlist Pro gives your audience easy access to their wishlist through your WordPress site. The plugin allows you to configure your Amazon domain, the list order and layout of the wishlist. Be aware that if you want the wishlist to stay up to date automatically, you may have to invalidate cache.
