How does an Amazon Wish List work? An Amazon Wish List is a gift registry that people use to share and collaborate ideas with their family and friends.

First, create your wish list then share the (URL) link;

Hover over “Account & Lists” at the top of the page and select “Create a List” from the drop-down menu. If you're creating many lists, go to “Your Lists.” “Create a List.” From the list menu, select “Manage List.” Here is where you can update your default shipping address, privacy settings, personal description, and preferences. “Save” and browse for an item. Click “Add to List” under “Buy” on the right-hand side of any item's product detail page.

Both list owners and collaborators are able to add and remove items from the list. You can add items for sale except for out-of-stock products, items with no release dates, and items with quantity restrictions. You can also add items available from sellers to your list. “Potential purchasers will “See Buying Options” instead of “Add to Cart” next to each item,” as the same copy may not be available later. You can add a product to the wish list or to the cart irrespective of what product page you are on.

If the Amazon Wish List is not working for some reason, contact customer service for help. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
