Wish, created in 2013, is a mobile marketplace with 10 million daily active shoppers that offers an engaging experience suited to mobile devices. In 2017, Wish was the 6th largest eCommerce company in the world, and in that same year it opened a European head office in Amsterdam.
Wish is different than other marketplaces, because other marketplaces are usually search based, while Wish uses data to proactively recommend products to customers. When customers register on the Wish shop they have to provide their gender, age and location. Wish takes this data and shows recommended products to the customers. These recommendations become even more relevant over time because Wish also keeps track and anticipates the browsing and buying history of the customers.
Where are my product listings displayed with Wish?
Product listings on the Wish shop are displayed very visually. They have individual fields with an image, price and information about how many people already bought the product. Additional product information and shipping information can be found when a customer clicks on the product image. People can also leave reviews for your products and include their own pictures.
