In that article, I shared steps to locating a wish list on Amazon, how to create your own Amazon Wish List and how to share it with people.
This article will be covering the most FAQ about Amazon Wish Lists so pull up your gift guide organizer for notes.
Amazon Wish List FAQ
1. How do I Look Up Someone’s Wishlist on Amazon?
Go to your Amazon page HERE. You will see 3 tabs at the top for your lists, your idea lists and your friend’s list.
Your friend needs to share it with you so you can use the Friend’s List tab to send an email to request access to the Wish List.
You can view step by step screenshots for how to do that HERE.
2. How Do Amazon Wish Lists Work?
Amazon Wish List helps you to curate items that you would like to receive as gifts or purchase for yourself in future.
Your Wish List can be set to public, which allows anyone with a link to access it.
You can also send an email with the link to anyone to access the list.
Unless specified, wish lists are usually public and anyone with a link can have access to it. Who would access your wish list?
Someone looking for ideas of what to get you for an occasion or the kind of things you like so they can DIY a gift for you.
3. Are Amazon Wish Lists Anonymous?
- Public (anyone can find it)
- Private (only you can see it) or
- Shared (anyone with the link can see it)
You can change your privacy settings under the “more” tab. You can view screenshots for this at How to Find Someone’s Wish List on Amazon.
4. How Do You Know if Someone Purchased Something on your Amazon Wish List?
When someone makes a purchase from your Wish List, you will receive a notification unless you have selected to set up spoiler alert.
A spoiler alert prevents you from buying something off your list by mistake and you won’t know someone purchased something from your Wish List until the gift arrives.
5. Can You Have Multiple Wish Lists on Amazon?
You can even create a Wish List for other retailers like eBay and Target right on Amazon.
6. Can I Hide My Address on My Amazon Wish List?
Your address is private on your Wish List. When someone buys you something, the only information that will pop up is your name and city.
Your full address will never show up on when someone buys a gift from your Wish List.
7. Can I Find Out What’s in an Amazon Package Without Opening It?
In case you’re not sure about a gift you receive, you can find out what’s inside before opening it.
You need the Amazon App for this. Tap the camera button and select the Package X-Ray feature.
You can then scan the barcode and the app will tell you what’s inside.
This is how it works on an iPhone but you should be able to do the same thing across different phones.
8. Does Amazon Remove Items from Wish List?
Once a purchase is made from your Wish List, Amazon automatically hides the item to prevent duplicate purchases.
The item only stays on your list if you opted for multiples of the same item. You can go back and retrieve the list of the purchased items later on.
9. Can I Add Items from Other Retailers to My Amazon Wish List?
You can add items from other retailers like Nordstrom, eBay, Target, Sally Beauty, etc with the Amazon Assistant browser extension.
Whenever you come across something you like, click the extension to add it to your Amazon Wish List.
Check out Amazon Assistant browser extension and download HERE.
10. What Does Default List on Amazon Mean?
Amazon Wish Lists are public by default. You have to go into settings to make it private or shared.
As long as it’s public, anyone that goes to your profile page on Amazon can find the Wish List.
11. Can You Print an Amazon Wish List?
You can print an Amazon Wish List by clicking the “more” tab. Options to manage list and print list will show up.
Click “print list” and a new page will open up with all items, price, quantity and if anyone has purchased it.
12. How to Organize Amazon Wish Lists?
Wish Lists can be organized via the “Filter & Sort” option. Wish Lists can be organized by purchased, unpurchased, price and priority.
You can also use the search bar next to “Filter & Sort” to search for anything on the Wish List if it’s a large one.
13. How Do I Edit My Amazon Wish List?
You can edit your list via the “more” button. Click on “Manage List” and make any changes to the settings.
You can make changes to individual items via the item. You can add a comment, modify the quantity, or indicate the priority of the gift.
You can also move the item to a different Wish List or delete it.
14. How Do I Find a Public Wish List on Amazon?
A wish list set to “public” on Amazon means anyone can usually find it. You can view the step by step procedure for this on How to Find Someone’s Wish List on Amazon.
