How to Create Your Amazon Wishlist for Prime Day 2022


Amazon’s Wish Lists are a great way to build a gift list and with Amazon Prime Day happening July 13-14, you’ll definitely want to be prepared. Once you’ve created a list, you can easily let your friends and family know what your ideal birthday gifts are. They are also useful for creating shopping lists as Amazon will send you notifications of any changes to added items. This includes price changes, out of stock alerts and offers.

We’ll show you how to create and use an Amazon Wishlist on desktop and mobile. Before you begin, make sure you’re signed in to your Amazon account.

How to Share Your Amazon Wish List

Share your wishlist to let others see the items on it. You can either set your wishlist to show only or allow other people to add and remove items.

Remember that once you submit your list, anyone with the link can access it. However, only the listing owner can change privacy settings, delete the listing, share the listing, and view or edit shipping addresses.

  1. Open the list you want to share.
  2. Click on Invite under the name of your lists.
    1. You can also click Send list to others on the desk.
  3. Select one of the display options in the pop-up window.

  4. Select one of the pre-selected options to share your list, or tap After to share via an application.

These steps are the same on desktop, but you’ll have fewer sharing options.

How to Manage All Your Amazon Wish Lists

Once you’ve created your list, you may want to modify it further.

  1. Open one of your wishlists.
  2. Press the three points at the top right of your screen.
  3. Faucet Manage list in the context menu.

Here you can edit the list name, privacy settings, and Alexa settings. You can also define a recipient here. This allows you to buy items from the list and receive them automatically without having to manually change the delivery address each time.

Tips for managing your list:

  • If you want to create a wishlist for yourself, scroll down and select Don’t spoil my surprises. This means you won’t be notified if someone purchases an item from your listing.
  • To delete a list, scroll down and tap Delete list.
  • To set a list as the default list, scroll down and tap Default list.
  • When you’re done managing your list, tap Save changes at the top right of your screen.
