As an e-commerce expert with over 8 years of experience, I understand the importance of a smooth and intuitive shopping experience. The Wish app has gained immense popularity for its vast product selection and discounted prices. However, some users may find the process of removing items from their cart a bit confusing initially. In this article, I’ll provide a comprehensive guide on how to remove items from your Wish shopping cart effortlessly.

The Wish app takes a slightly different approach when it comes to removing items from your cart. Unlike many other e-commerce platforms, there is no dedicated “Remove” button. Instead, you’ll need to adjust the quantity of the item to 0. Here’s a step-by-step process:

  1. Open the Wish app on your smartphone and tap on the Cart icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
  2. In the Cart menu, you’ll see the items that aren’t ordered yet and the quantities of each of those items. Find the item you want to remove from your cart.
  3. Tap on the quantity number (the number below the price) of the item you wish to remove.
  4. A new pop-up menu will appear. Select “0” from the quantity options.
  5. Following this, another pop-up will ask if you want to remove this item from the cart. Select “Remove” to confirm.

By following these simple steps, the item will be successfully removed from your Wish shopping cart.

Moving Items to Your Wishlist

If you’ve changed your mind about purchasing an item but don’t want to lose track of it entirely, Wish offers a convenient solution. Instead of removing the item from your cart, you can move it to your Wishlist for future consideration. Here’s how:

  1. Follow steps 1-4 from the previous section to reduce the item’s quantity to 0.
  2. When the pop-up appears asking if you want to remove the item, select “Save for later” instead of “Remove item.”
  3. If you don’t already have a Wishlist, you’ll be prompted to create one. Enter a name for your new Wishlist and click “Create new Wishlist.”

By saving the item to your Wishlist, you can easily access it later when you’re ready to make a purchase, without having to search for it again.

Canceling an Order

In case you’ve already placed an order but have changed your mind, Wish allows you to cancel the order within a specific timeframe. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Enter the Wish mobile app and open its menu by tapping on the button with three horizontal lines in the top-left corner.
  2. Choose “Order History” and find the item that you’ve changed your mind about.
  3. Tap on the “Contact Support” button under that item.
  4. A chat window will pop up, asking if you need help with that particular order. Select “Yes.”
  5. The bot will proceed to ask you what you’d like to do with the order. Choose “Cancel my item.”
  6. Finally, select a reason for canceling your order or type your own.

It’s important to note that you can only cancel an order within 8 hours after placing it. If the order has already been processed or shipped, you may need to follow a different process for returning the item.


The Wish app’s approach to removing items from your cart may seem unconventional at first, but it’s a straightforward process once you understand the steps. By adjusting the quantity to 0 and selecting “Remove item,” you can easily declutter your cart. Additionally, the option to move items to your Wishlist ensures that you don’t lose track of products you might want to purchase later. And if you’ve made a hasty purchase, you can cancel the order within the 8-hour window by contacting customer support. [1] [2] [4] [7]
