Wishlists are one of the most useful features for an e-commerce: on one side, it encourages users to come back, allowing to track products they consider interesting. On the other, if users share their wishlist — to friends, or through social networks — this will increase the sales of your products and will help the promotion of your online business.
DISCOVER WHAT YOUR CUSTOMERS WANT AND BE PREPARED TO MEET THEIR NEEDS
When we hear about “wishlist”, we think about a simple button that lets us save the product we are interested in in the e-commerce we are visiting, before a coming purchase. However, the wishlist is something more.
Today the wishlist is a powerful marketing tool. Giving the opportunity to track users’ interests is useful, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg.
What can really make the difference in conversions and amount of sales is without a doubt the freedom to share your own wishlist, even on social networks, increasing indirect sales: can you imagine the sales volume you can generate during holidays or birthdays, when relatives and friends will be looking for the wishlist of your clients to buy a gift? Moreover, you can send the wishlist to the administrator of the site to ask for a custom estimate on the concerned products.
But the most interesting feature is all about you. From now on, you will be free to observe your customers’ wishlists and to view the statistics about the most popular products in your shop. What does your average customer want concretely? What would happen if you sent a special discount for the purchase of the most requested product? And by basing it on this, you could create ad hoc promotions and discounts to loyalize the customers and encourage them to buy the product they like.
Hi, Paul! Unfortunately not, I am sorry. They can check their wishlist on the website, but they cannot download it. Anyway, there are many plugins on wp.org that allows customers to download a page as a PDF, so maybe some of this could be used in combination with our plugin to let customers download the list.
Hi, Will! At the moment the plugin doesn't allow users to change the product quantity in the wishlist, but we have already planned to add this feature to a future release. Unfortunately, though, we don't have an ETA for its release yet.
