Wishlists are really useful when you want to keep a record of your favorite products and that’s not all, you can share wishlists with others. How about sharing your wishlist with your friends. By sharing wishlist, they know what to gift you and what not. Problems increase when a person starts to create wishlist on many shopping sites and managing all those wishlist may become cumbersome. Creating a wishlist on a shopping site is very easy but here’s how to share that wishlist with others.
Let’s say you have created a wishlist on Amazon, BestBuy and eBay. Now how would you combine all those wishlists into one, so that you can share it with your friends? For doing this, we’ll need to create a universal wishlist, that means one wishlist that includes products from all the shopping sites. Doing this is definitely possible.
Creating a Universal Wishlist
Add to Amazon Wishlist is a Chrome extension that allows us to add products from any website to Amazon wishlist. Install this extension and then you’ll be able to see a new wish list button to the right of your browser address bar.
When browsing product pages on any website, just click on this “Amazon wish list” button from the toolbar.
A window will appear on the screen, enter name, price, comments and click on Add to Wish List button to add that product to your Amazon wish list.
If the same product is also found on Amazon, then it will be displayed at the bottom with its price. You can compare both the prices and add any product to your wish list.
Finally, you can check your Amazon wishlist to see all the products that you’ve added into your wish list.
In this screenshot above, you can see products from etsy.com and also from Amazon. This is the new universal wishlist that allows us to add products from any shopping site, check and compare the prices and then shop from a single wishlist. Now you won’t need to track wish lists from multiple site – as this is the new all-in-one solution.
Sharing Wish List With Everyone
By default, wish lists are public and anyone can see it. You can set the Privacy Setting of your list to “Public” or “Shared with a link”. To change privacy settings, click on “change” link in this wish list page.
- Public means anyone will be able search for and see a “Public” Wish List
- Shared with a link means only users with a link to your Wish List will be able see it. The list will not appear in Amazon search results.
To share your wish list with others, all you need to do is to just send him the URL of this wish list (Who knows, your friend might buy you one of those items).
