General

What is My Wishlist?
On My Wishlist you can create a wishlist. Easy and for free.
How do I create a wishlist?
After registering, your wishlist is created immediately. You can then start adding items.

Items

How do I add an item to my wishlist?
  1. Click the green button "New item" at the top of your wishlist.
  2. Copy-paste the item's web address/URL. (optional)
  3. Provide the item's other details.
  4. Click "Save".
Do I need to provide a URL?

If an item can be found in a webshop, it is recommended to provide its web address. This has some advantages:

  1. My Wishlist can analyze the item, and prefill the title, image, etcetera for you.
  2. Your family & friends can easily view and purchase the item via the link.

Entering a web address is optional, though. Leave the field blank if your item has no URL.

Which webshops are supported?

My Wishlist supports items from all webshops.

Should you have any trouble adding items from a particular webstore, please let us know so that we can fix it.

How do I modify an item?
On your wishlist, click the item you want to modify. Then click the button with the pencil icon. Change the item details (e.g. title, image, price) and click "Save".
How do I delete an item?
On your wishlist, click the item you want to delete. Then click the button with the trash icon. The item will be moved to your trash. After 30 days, the item will be deleted permanently.

Wishlist

How do I send my wishlist?
At the top of your wishlist, click the button "Send wishlist". You can then choose between several sharing options, including email, Facebook, WhatsApp, and more.
Can I send my wishlist by postcard?
Yes. Every wishlist has its very own wshl.st short link, exactly for that purpose. The short link is easier to read and type than the normal link. You'll find your short link under "Settings" > "Wishlist settings".
Can I change my wishlist after sending it?
Of course! You can always make changes to your wishlist.
How do I change my wishlist name?
Go to "Settings" > "Wishlist settings".
Can I add a second/third/... wishlist?
Yes, you can create multiple wishlists. Go to "Settings" > "Wishlist settings" and click on the plus icon at the top of the page.
How do I delete my wishlist?

If you have multiple wishlists, you can delete a wishlist under "Settings" > "Wishlist settings". Using the tabs, go to the wishlist you want to delete. At the bottom of the page, first click on the trash icon, then on the Delete button to confirm.

If you only have one wishlist, you cannot delete it, as your account must always contain one wishlist.

Who can see my wishlist?

You're in control of who can see your wishlist. The default visibility setting is "Friends", which means that you, the people you send your wishlist to, and your friends on My Wishlist can see it.

Please note that your wishlist looks somewhat different to your visitors than it does to you. For example, as the wishlist owner, you can add, edit and delete items, while your visitors cannot. On the other hand, your visitors can reserve items on your wishlist, while you cannot.

Reserving

What is reserving?
Family and friends can reserve items on your wishlist. By reserving an item, they're indicating that the item is "theirs" to give, and should not be bought or given by anyone else. Reserving items prevents double gifts.
Who can reserve an item?
If somebody can view your wishlist, they can also reserve an item.
Who can see which items have been reserved?
Everybody who can view your wishlist, can see which items have already been reserved.
Can I see if an item has been reserved?
No, the wishlist owner cannot see which items have been reserved. We wouldn't want to spoil the surprise!
Can I prevent an item from being reserved?
Yes. When editing an item, you can make an item "unreservable". This is a useful feature for items that you can never get too many of (such as ❤️ or 💰).
