Wishlist Search Widget

All Wishlists that are set to be public can be found using the Wishlist Search widget. The widget enables a customer to search by Wishlist owner name or email address. Store customers can find wishlists that belong to other customers, view them and order products from them, or add the products to their own wishlists. When items from a customer’s public wishlist are purchased by another customer, the items are not removed from the original wishlist.

Shipping addresses are not included in wishlists.

The Wishlist Search widget can be added to any page of your store to make it easy for customers to search for wishlists. To learn more, see: Widgets.
