WCBoost – Wishlist

A WooCommerce extension that allows guests and customers to create and add products to a wishlist.

Wishlist is a key feature in e-commerce websites. These websites benefit from increased conversion rates, optimized revenues, and simplified consumer buying processes.

According to studies, the majority of website visitors don’t typically buy anything on their first visit. They frequently become perplexed by several products. A nice (and pertinent) solution for them is a wishlist. Users are able to add their favorite products to a list. For a store with a lot of options, this will make it simpler for users to make the decision. They can also quickly locate their preferred products when making subsequent purchases.

Users can also utilize wishlists to recommend their favorite goods to family members and friends. This is beneficial for your website. This will encourage more orders from customers who share the same interests on your website. Or assume that you will receive more orders that are gifts from your customers to one another on special occasions (such as birthdays, Christmas, etc.).

For sellers, understanding client preferences and issues also makes it simpler for store owners to cater to customers, which helps to boost online revenue for sellers.

Based on the fundamental API of WooCommerce, this plugin was created, ensuring compatibility, performance, and security. Because the plugin has been tested with the most widely used themes and is guaranteed not to interfere with the user experience, we also recognize the value of integrating with themes.
