Easy Management of Multiple Wishlists in Magento 2

Wishlists give customers opportunity to enjoy the shopping experience by organizing products and planning user's budget before making a purchase. Multiple wishlists help customers create different wishlists for certain events. Are you going on a trip and want to complete the summer outfit or need to buy presents for your family in one store? By default Magento 2 creates one list with favorite products that can mess user's experience up, as all products are collected in one list only. Creating separate lists with favorite products will save customers' time and organize all items for different occasions.

The Multiple Wishlists extension for Magento 2 allows to create specific wishlists for different events such as business trip, picnic, birthdays, gym equipment and more. All lists are stored on the customer dashboard. Admin can also manage all lists or create new ones from the customer account in backend.

What are the Benefits of Multiple Wishlists?

Add products to unique wishlists. Found cool jeans and t-shirts? Going on a picnic, but still don't know what shoes to get? Multiple Wishlists allow to put products into separate customizable wishlists with unique titles and organize necessary information on the customer dashboard.

Share wishlists with family and friends. Your customers can easily share wishlists with everyone by email. Thus, users will get quick feedback and help from different people.

Manage wishlists from backend. Admin gets the full control over all multiple wishlists that can help to track what products are added to the lists, allowing to copy, move products between wishlists or create new ones.

Multiple Wishlists on Frontend

After the extension was activated, customers can create wishlists and add products via the popup. To add products to wishlists, do the following:

1. Login as a customer, add your favorite product to the wishlist.

2. In the appeared popup choose a list to move your product to, or create a new wishlist by selecting "OR create a new wishlist" and entering a custom title.

3. Then click button "Add to Wishlist".

Multiple Wishlists on the Customer Dashboard

Once your customer has added products to the wishlist the separate section with all wishlists will appear on the customer dashboard following Account Dashboard > My Wish List.

All created wishlists are organized in tabs, which are completely customizable and have unique titles. Customers can create a wishlist on the frontend and customer dashboard.

To create a wishlist on the dashboard, do the following:

1. Enter a unique name for your list, for example "Presents for my mom's birthday".

2. Click button "Create Wishlist".

The newly created tab will be empty allowing customers to choose products from catalog and product pages. The extension also allows to rename, remove wishlists, add comments to each product in the list.

Do you want to see the final calculation of all product per one wishlist? The extension enables the detailed calculation below each list summarizing how much customers will spend. Customers can also manage products between wishlists, for example, copying, moving to other lists, removing or update product attributes or quantity. Do you want to show the chosen options and attributes per product in the wishlist? Just hover over the "See Details" text below the necessary product and all data will be shown in the popup.

All products can be moved from each wishlist to the shopping cart in bulk or separately. The extension also allows to leave products in the lists after adding to cart if other settings are not specified.

How to Manage Wishlists on the Customer Dashboard


Let your customers share wishlists with third parties by enabling the "Share Wish List" button below each list. Users can enter multiple emails on a separate page as well as leave custom messages. This is how the real email will look like:
