Wishlist is a great tool to keep customers. In this post, we will show you how to setup wishlist. Customers often hesitate to purchase your products and take a bunch of time considering before they place an order. Thus, for more convenient purchase in the next visit, it is helpful if you create a wish list where the registered customers can save all the wanted items, and they can add to cart any time. The wish list is managed well on the dashboard of the customer account.
When enable the wish lists, the Add to Wish List link will appear on the category or product detail page of each product. You can set as a text link or a graphic image deepending on your using theme. Each product in the Wish List is allowed to share with the customer’s friends by sending the email from a store email address. Meanwhile, the content of the email is flexible to customize by the clients and the email template and the email sender are configured in the Magento configuration.
For a product with many options, when the customers add it to the wish list, they will appear as the individual items in the list.
