As an avid online shopper and tech enthusiast, I’ve used many different shopping apps over the years. One app that stands out for its unique features and affordable finds is Wish. In addition to offering a wide variety of products at great prices, Wish provides a handy wishlist feature that allows you to save items you’re interested in and easily share them with friends and family.

In this article, I’ll walk you through the steps to create, manage, and share wishlists on the Wish app. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or looking for gift ideas, mastering the wishlist feature can enhance your Wish shopping experience.

Creating a Wishlist on Wish

To start building your wishlist, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the Wish app on your phone
  2. Tap the three horizontal lines in the bottom-right corner to access the menu
  3. Go to your profile by tapping your profile picture
  4. Tap the “+” icon in the upper-right corner
  5. Type in a name for your new wishlist
  6. Select “Create New Wishlist”

You can create multiple wishlists for different purposes, such as:

  • Gift ideas for friends and family
  • Personal shopping lists for various occasions
  • Themed collections (e.g., home decor, fashion, gadgets)

Adding Items to Your Wishlist

Once you’ve created a wishlist, it’s time to start adding items:

  1. Browse the Wish app and find a product you like
  2. Tap on the item to view its details
  3. Tap the heart icon beneath the product image
  4. Choose the wishlist you want to add the item to, or create a new one

Your selected item will now appear in your designated wishlist, making it easy to find and purchase later.

Managing Your Wishlists

Wish allows you to manage your wishlists with ease. You can edit wishlist names, remove items, and control the privacy settings. Here’s how:

To rename a wishlist:

  1. Go to your profile and tap on the wishlist you want to edit
  2. Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner
  3. Select “Edit”
  4. Type in the new name and tap “Done”

To remove an item from a wishlist:

  1. Open the wishlist containing the item you want to remove
  2. Tap “Edit” in the upper-right corner
  3. Tap the red “-” button next to the item
  4. Confirm by tapping “Remove”

To change your wishlist privacy settings:

  1. Go to your profile and tap on the wishlist you want to modify
  2. Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner
  3. Select “Edit”
  4. Toggle the “Privacy” switch on or off
  • “Privacy Off” means your wishlist is public and visible to your followers
  • “Privacy On” means your wishlist is private and hidden from others

Sharing Your Wishlist

The main benefit of creating wishlists on Wish is the ability to share them with friends and family. However, Wish doesn’t provide a direct way to share your wishlist link. Instead, you’ll need to follow your friends on the app and then send them your wishlist link. Here’s how:

To follow friends on Wish:

  1. Tap the search icon at the bottom of the screen
  2. Type in your friend’s Wish username or email address
  3. Tap “Follow” next to their profile

Once you’re following each other, you can share your wishlist link:

  1. Go to your profile and tap on the wishlist you want to share
  2. Tap the three dots in the upper-right corner
  3. Select “Share”
  4. Choose your preferred sharing method (e.g., text message, email, social media)
  5. Send the link to your friend

When your friend clicks on the link, they’ll be able to view your wishlist and purchase items directly from the Wish app.


The wishlist feature on Wish is a convenient tool for saving and sharing your favorite products. By creating multiple wishlists, you can organize your shopping interests and easily find items later. Plus, sharing your wishlists with friends and family makes gift-giving a breeze.

Remember, to share your wishlist on Wish, you’ll need to follow your friends on the app first. Once connected, simply send them your wishlist link via your preferred communication method.

Happy shopping and sharing on Wish!
