WooCommerce wishlist is one of the useful features of an ecommerce store that allows you to add a wishlist button on your products. On one side, it encourages users to come back, allowing products tracking they consider interesting until the purchase step. On the other, if users share their wishlist to friends, or through social networks, this will enhance the sales and will help the promotion of your online business.
