Frontend Example

Multiple Wishlist module extends the default functionality of Magento 2 wishlists. Shoppers can create numerous wishlists for any occasion, leave useful notes, share wishlists via email. Store owners can retain customers by offering to save products to wishlists instead of abandoning the store.

Add products to wishlist from Category Page

The wishlists functionality is available to registered users only. If a guest user tries to add an item to a wishlist, they'll be redirected to the 'Login' page. After successful login or account registration, the user will be redirected back to add good to the list.

To add a product to a wishlist, the user needs to press the heart icon near the 'Add to Cart' button, when shopping on the Category Page. After that, an 'Add to Wishlist' popup appears. In the pop-up window, customers can either add an item to an existing wishlist or create a new list.

Wishlists and Requisition lists functionality

The Multiple Wishlist extension combines two list types in one module. With the extension, customers can create both wishlists and requisition lists.

Kindly note, that there is a difference between wishlists and requisition lists functionality. Though, visually wishlists and requisition lists look the same — and have the same management options like rename, move, copy, delete, etc.

Offer convenient wishlists to let shoppers save products they want to buy. Wishlists are a great tool to help keep all items in one place. This way, when shopping for an important occasion, a customer will be more likely to purchase everything at one store.

After adding to the cart, the content of a wishlist disappears.

Requisition lists, on the other hand, are perfect to plan regular purchases like groceries, beauty products, socks, tools, paint, paper, school supplies — any product type, that one needs to re-purchase on a regular basis.

After adding to the cart, the content of the Requisition List remains intact. When customers will want to make the next purchase, they'll simply choose the needed Requisition List and re-order everything in one click.

Manage any list in customer account

The extension allows customers to manage any list in their customer account. They can: add more items to the selected list; copy, move, delete products from the list; add products to cart - one or all products simultaneously.

With the AJAX Shopping Cart extension you can let users select configurable options and edit items in the pop-up without page reloads. This way, it will be possible to buy configurable products right from the wishlist.

Let’s say, a customer is looking for some gifts in advance. Having browsed through numerous products, the user remembers the details now. But this may be a struggle a couple of weeks later when the user returns to buy the presents. Simply allow buyers to leave handy comments on products they add to a wishlist. A note like ‘Gift for Anna’ can be a powerful reminder to help the store get the sale.

Let customers discuss future purchases by sharing the wishlist with their friends and family. The Magento 2 Wishlist module displays the ‘Share’ button for each wishlist, thus making a conversation happen faster. It can facilitate costly purchases, as users might need advice from someone they trust. This way, the 'Share Wishlist' option positively impacts sales.

The module also enables an admin to delete products from the customer's wishlist or set up settings for configurable products from the backend.


Shoppers can add products to lists in several ways:

  • via Category Page pop-up
  • via Product Page pop-up
  • via search in Wishlist's section of Customer Account, as shown on the screenshot below.

To add any product to a wishlist, enter several symbols — the module will automatically start searching. If there are more goods matching search queries than could be displayed on the screen, the user will be able to scroll through items.

Customers can specify the number of items to add to the list — e.g. add 3 tees at one click.

Recently Updated Lists

To help users navigate numerous items with ease, the extension adds the 'Recently Updated Lists' block after each wishlist. By click, customers will be redirected to the selected list to manage or buy items.


How to uninstall the module?

On Magento 2 Open Source (also known as Magento 2 Community Edition), the Magento installation has a unique key that restricts users to have more than one wishlist.

The Multiple Wishlist module removes this key to ensure the proper functioning of the extension. So, if you try to disable the module via the command line, an error might occur.

To fix that, please run the following uninstall request:

module:uninstall Amasty_MWishlist
