Have you ever considered adding a wishlist button to your Divi WooCommerce site? If not, you should consider implementing it this year on your website. Because it’s found in Google’s research that 40% of consumers prefer to explore a digital store that offers the option to build a wishlist on the platform.
If you’re a Divi user, the good thing is, “now it’s super easy to add the wishlist functionality to the eCommerce store.” And through this tutorial, we’ll guide you on how to do that.
But first, let’s look at what a Wishlist is and how it can help your business grow.
What’s a Wishlist in an eCommerce Store?
A Wishlist in an eCommerce store is a feature that allows customers to save a list of items they are interested in buying but may not be ready to purchase just yet.
It’s like a personal shopping list that customers can refer back to when they are prepared to purchase. This feature can be handy for customers who want to keep track of items they are considering as gifts or for special occasions.
Additionally, it also helps store owners to understand what their customers are looking for and can be helpful in future promotions and sales.
Benefits of Having a Wishlist Button
There are several benefits to having a Wishlist button on an eCommerce store, including:
1. Increased Customer Engagement
When you offer a Wishlist button or icon or functionality, you’re making sure to the consumer that what they’re exploring can be saved if they want to purchase it later. When customers see that little heart icon on a particular product, they want to learn more about it.
If they cannot Wishlist it, it immediately lowers their expectations, and they quit the platform in search of something worth exploring, engaging and open to save it later.
2. Increased Sales
Users will save products if an add to wishlist option is available on your Divi WooCommerce store.
32% of 100 consumers will purchase the product they’ve added to the Wishlist, which varies industry by industry. Yet, this will take significantly longer than buying something they need immediately—however, the chances of purchasing increase when there’s a sale on the platform.
3. Insights Into Customer Preferences
When customers have products added to their Wishlist, a store owner can determine what interests the user. According to that, they can make changes to the product or their inventory to improve the store’s sales.
Furthermore, store owners can gain insight into what products are popular and in demand. This can help them decide better what products to stock and promote.
4. Better Customer Service
With wishlist products, you get to know what makes the user explore your eCommerce site. Hence, you can add products like that or make changes to the existing ones. Additionally, it helps you offer better customer service.
For example, a user has added an item to the Wishlist. However, after a while, it’s out of stock. The user might remove it if they need it during that period. And if not, then you can notify them once it’s back.
And they probably get it. Or you can recommend something related to that product they’ve added to the list. In this way, you’d provide the customer with excellent experience and service without losing them.
5. Personalized Marketing
When you know what inspires your customers, offering them products or services they would love becomes easy.
A wishlist will help you learn your customers’ preferences, using which you can run marketing campaigns aligned with the customers’ needs. This will help you share the right offer with the right customers, leading you to generate more sales by spending less on the budget.
6. Wishlist Share
People like to share different things they’re doing with their peers; the same is with wishlists. If you allow creating wishlists on your eCommerce store, customers can share the products they love with their friends and family. This boosts your store’s visibility and its products, providing an excellent opportunity to generate more sales.
