This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Wishlist for WooCommerce


A simple and lightweight wishlist for WooCommerce, with plenty of hooks for customization to fit your WooCommerce theme.

By default, the plugin adds a wishlist icon to the WooCommerce archive pages and the WooCommerce single product page. Instead of an icon you can also switch to a text-based link to or add/remove wishlist items.
The wishlist can be added to a page using the [jvm_woocommerce_add_to_wishlist] shortcode. For more advanced customization see the hooks, javascript API and templates sections below.


For advanced users and developers, a few WordPress actions and filters are supplied to modify the behavior of the wishlist.

Example usage removing the button from the archive page:

remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_shop_loop_item', 'jvm_woocommerce_add_to_wishlist', 15 );

Example usage switching to text links instead of icons:

add_filter( 'jvm_add_to_wishlist_class', function($class) {
    return 'jvm_add_to_wishlist text';


Available actions:

  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_loaded
  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_before_wishlist
  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_after_wishlist
  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_before_wishlist_contents
  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_after_wishlist_contents
  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_before_add_to_wishlist
  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_after_add_to_wishlist


  • jvm_add_to_wishlist_class
  • jvm_add_to_wishlist_icon_html
  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_product_ids


  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_get_count()
  • jvm_woocommerce_wishlist_get_wishlist_product_ids()


The default wishlist page can be overridden in your theme. From the plugin directory copy




Modify what you need in the copy.

Javascript API

For further theme integration the javascript file in the plugin has a few custom events that are fired for wishlist user activity.

  • add.JVMWooCommerceWishlist
  • remove.JVMWooCommerceWishlist
  • beforeupdate.JVMWooCommerceWishlist
  • afterupdate.JVMWooCommerceWishlist

Example usage:

$(document).on("beforeupdate.JVMWooCommerceWishlist", function(e) {

  // Do something like update some custom counter, show a message or whatever.



  1. Install the plugin from the Plugins or upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory menu and then activate it.
  2. Go to the plugin setting screen to define a wishlist page.
  3. Go to the plugin settings page from the plugins screen and create your wishlist page.

It's a pity the plugin is no longer supported. I'd suggest to make 2 fixes (needed to support multilang). 1. Change get_bloginfo('name') to $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] File \wp-content\plugins\jvm-woocommerce-wishlist\inc\www-core-functions.php 23 return str_replace( '-', '_', sanitize_title_with_dashes( $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] ) ); //get_bloginfo('name') 2. Change get_the_title($product_id) to get_post_field( 'post_name', get_post($product_id) ) File \wp-content\plugins\jvm-woocommerce-wishlist\inc\frontend\www-functions.php 60 ?><a class="<?php echo esc_attr( $class ); ?>" href="?add_to_wishlist=<?php echo $product_id; ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( $text ); ?>" rel="nofollow" data-product-title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_post_field( 'post_name', get_post($product_id) ) ); ?>" data-product-id="<?php echo $product_id; ?>"> //get_the_title($product_id)

How to add product wishlist page to 'add to cart' page. I don't find any add to cart button
29 İyun 2020
I appreciate all the free plugins out there, but many times they're bloated with unwanted options. Having tried many other Wordpress wishlist plugins, this is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

After having tried several of the more popular Wishlist plugins, I found that they were all difficult to work with/customize, ran slow, and came with a lot of features I didn't need - while some simple features I did want would come in a premium package. This plugin however, is fast and allows for customization. If you're not shy to change up the code and style a little, you can easily get to the result you want, without the plugin breaking or acting weird. Support was also quick to get back to me and provided all I needed. Thank you for an amazingly smooth plugin and keep up the good work!
