WooCommerce TutorialsYITH WooCommerce Wishlist: New Free Plugin Released

To help you make your wishes come true

Everyone has wishes, some of us have many wishes, but so many that it could even become difficult to remember them all? I don’t think so. People who have many wishes do not forget them, wishes cannot be forgotten, of course, but one might risk to forget all details concerning them, what to do, where to go, how to do to make their wishes come true. So a useful tool has been invented, both in its virtual and material form: the wishlist. And if you are in an online shop? You should take note of every detail of the products you like (and no one excludes that some pieces of information might slip your mind). And this takes long.

But, why toiling when a simple and very useful plugin comes to help us? YITH WooCommerce Wishlist is a wonderful plugin for online shops. Helpful both for owners and for customers. It allows users to create one or even more wishlists where to add and leave their wish products for all the time they want or until they have the possibility to buy them.

This WooCommerce plugin allows users to customise their wishlists as they prefer. First of all, they have the possibility to decide if making their own wishlist either public, shared only with whom they want, or to make it private and visible to themselves only. Moreover, the possibility to create more than one wishlists might help them in a situation such as having a wishlist shared with all members of their family but having at the same time the need for a private one where storing presents for them. Customisation is in your hands.

Then imagine users had the possibility to search among public wishlists: well, you do not have to imagine, you can do it! YITH Wishlist has an option that allows you to search within any public wishlist by simply knowing the name of its owner or the email associated to it.

YITH WooCommerce Wishlist is a useful tool put at users’ disposal, one could only benefit from the possibilities it offers. And you will be able to experience it yourself, just give a look to the demo version available Live Demo. You will be able to discover all free and premium features this extension adds to your site.

One of the most important features for me, especially if you are a shop owner, is the possibility to learn about preferences for the products you sell. It is easy to learn about it, because YITH Wishlist allows you to count the occurrences of your products in customers’ wishlists. So, for instance, this option could also allow you to discover that the product you held to be just one among many in your shop has become so trendy that it is on top of your customers’ wishes. And then, you are free to fulfil their wants by making special offers or simply manage your business the way you prefer to make your customers happy.

On the other side, if customers wanted to ask you for a cost estimate of the products in their wishlist, I hope you are not thinking it would be a difficult task, because it is very easy with YITH WooCommerce Wishlist. Just a button and one click and they can ask a cost estimate that allows them to get an idea of what is in the cart and that allows you to manage better special offers for faithful customers. Or, if you wanted to improve this feature even more, you can read more in this article.

Moreover, this extension is also easy to setup, because it can be simply added using a shortcode, which can be then specified with many attributes. Shortcode is a quick way to add the wishlist feature on your products: almost ready with a click!

And a very interisting feature for those who are showing a “Frequently Bought Together” section is the chance to include a slider in Wishlist page with showing products that you have associated to the added-to-wishlist ones as frequently bought together.

So, I personally find YITH Wishlist one of the most useful extensions for online shops, because it allows you to offer your customers great possibilities in terms of freedom to choose products and let them have a place where to find them, even after some time has passed. Customers’ loyalty will be drastically enhanced this way and you will be able to see it on your own!
So… why waiting more? Go and try YITH WooCommerce Wishlist. It just takes you some minutes and nothing more!!!
