WooCommerce Wishlist

There are times when visitors simply browse product pages and leave without buying anything. Even when they are ready to buy, in most cases they tend to forget where they saw that product.

A Wishlist plugin would be a great tool for such users. It can help them maintain a list of things that catch their eye on your store and then come back to finalize the purchase. In many cases, the users simply dump products in the wishlist and then wait for sales or discount coupons before purchasing them.

So in this guide, I am going to discuss some of the best WooCommerce wishlist plugins. Besides, I am also going to show you how to set up and configure a wishlist through a plugin on your hosted WooCommerce store.

Wishlist is a useful feature for any eCommerce store and encourages users to come back to your store. When implemented correctly, it allows users to track products that they consider interesting.
