Purchasing gifts

When I buy a gift, how does that gift get to the recipient?

There are two ways to give a gift to a recipient:

  1. Send the gift directly to them. The user you are buying the gift for may have opted to share their shipping information as part of their WishList profile, or you probably already know the recipient’s address.
  2. Send the gift to yourself and give it to them directly.

Make sure to reserve the item you are buying off a WishList so the recipient doesn’t receive duplicate gifts.

When you’re creating or editing a WishList, you can add your delivery address (optional). Your delivery address will only appear when someone reserves a gift for you.

You can also set the privacy of your delivery address to ‘Private (hidden)’ or ‘Friends’, so only people that are your friends on WishList will be able to see the address.

Can l hide my address?

Because WishList.com does not sell any products of our own, gift buyers will need to know your address if you want items sent to you directly.  The good news is that most of your friends already know your address.  If you want to hide your address you can edit your WishList and change the address privacy to ‘Private (hidden)’ or ‘Friends’ so only people that are your friends on WishList will be able to see the address.

In rare cases, some people want to remain anonymous and still receive gifts. Some use virtual and real post office boxes for this.
