    Hello. When i sell a product who do i get my funds and how long does it take to receive them?
    Thanks

      Hey Bryan,
      The payments of your orders are disbursed after 7 to 14 days of order shipment in your wish account

    Hi, Are you allowed to include multiple versions of the same item. If I have an item that can come in brown white gray expresso colors, do you create multiple individual listings or 1 listing and include colors… Also what about if say I want to do custom to order. So I post once and the item sold can I go back and create another listing or update my previous one…

    • Avatar for Mohsin

      No, we are not allowed to include multiple versions of the same item on wish marketplace.
      The thing is if An Item has variation like with colour or size or any, then the product will not be listed individually. Since it has variation, then it will be uploaded as configurable product with the variation attributes.(One Product with variations)
      In case of custom orders, the inventory will get reduced and then you can add inventory to the same product. In simple words there's NO NEED to re-list the Item again.
      I hope you got the answer you were looking for.

      Hello Nubel,
      It always feels great when readers like you respond.
      Here are the answers to your questions:

      Q. Do you mean that i must already be selling items on my own personal site?
      Ans: The answer is NO. There is no need to sell items on your website. The thing is that wish marketplace is using api for all the process like upload/update product, inventory/price sync so, its need authentication process, in which they send the tokens for validation which requires a callback url (a website url). There's no rule that says you must be selling or not.

      Q. Does wish provide shipping and logistics services. And if it does, how does it work and will there be additional costs.
      Ans: Yes, wish provide shipping and logistics services to ship orders. Its know as Fulfillment by Wish. Wish operates multiple warehouses across the US and Europe that stock and deliver your products. As far as charges are concerned you’ll need to pay to use the service including inbound, storage, shipping, service and retrieval fees that vary by product weight, size and warehouse.
      You can also use a third-party dropshipping service. Third-party dropshipping providers can store and ship orders for you — for a fee. Compare dropshipping services to find the option best suited to your business model.

    I have 2 questions:
    1. Can I use my existing website or should I set up a new website to do Wish business?
    2. If I use my existing website would it affect the products that I am selling on shopee & lazada as far as pricing is concerned?

    • Avatar for Mohsin

      Hey Peter,
      The answers to your questions are:

      Q. Can I use my existing website or should I set up a new website to do Wish business?
      Ans – Yes, you can use your existing website for selling on Wish.com. There are no such boundations that prevent you from using an existing website.

      Q. If I use my existing website would it affect the products that I am selling on shopee & lazada as far as pricing is concerned?
      Ans – Don't worry!! The pricing won't get affected at all. In fact, if you want the different prices to be shown on Wish.com just simply create a Product attribute (like Wish Price), in which you can put the price, and then the price will be sent from that attribute.

    Hello
    I registered a wish seller through the steps indicated on the page, but the email prompted my account to be banned. why?

    • Avatar for Mohsin

      Hello Elena,
      Regarding your query – I would suggest you Please cross-check the account info twice. Try using the genuine details, setup the payment info with the correct data – as the Wish marketplace has strict guidelines regarding these.

      If this error persists, then I would suggest you directly get assistance from the Wish Merchant support by emailing them the case you have.
      Here the email id:
      merchant_support@wish.com

      Thankyou

    hi Mohsin i am a new seller on wish whenever i am trying to ad a new product its ask for brand name i dont have a brand name can i list product without brand name or i must have a brand name before listing product on wish can you please help me on this thanks.

    regards
    usman

    • Avatar for Mohsin

      Hi Usman,
      Well, the answer to your question is YES, You CAN publish your catalog without brand value as it is an optional field. Since you currently don't have a brand name, you can leave it blank.
      But in my opinion, if you are looking for the long run, I would suggest you first put a valid brand then proceed since it will put a good impression on your products and seller image on Wish.

      I hope you got the answer
      Thanks.

    Hello,
    Great information above.
    I would like to use the dropship method to sell products from Wish. The questions I have are:
    – I post the items from the wish website on my store site, using images from Wish
    – I price the items as I see fit
    – When I receive an order, I simply purchase the item from Wish using my personal funds and use the customers shipping address and I keep the difference, correct?
    – Also, can I get samples of products at a discount to do reviews? I plan on doing video reviews.
    That is all for now. Thanks ahead of time for your answers!!

      Hey Bryan,
      I am glad you found the blog informative.
      Here are the answers to your questions:

      Q. Can I post the items from the wish website on my store site, using images from Wish
      -> YES, you can easily create the products same as visible on Wish store. I would like to suggest you one very important thing – to make sure that you don't put the watermark of some other brand on your products. This often creates a lot of complications.

      Q. Can I price the items as I see fit?
      -> Indeed. You can and you should set the profit margin as per your wish.

      Q. When I receive an order, I simply purchase the item from Wish using my personal funds and use the customers shipping address and I keep the difference, correct?
      -> Well honestly, I am not sure if it works this way. On a personal level, I believe this is not an ideal strategy and haven't come across any guidelines that Wish allows sellers to do that.

      Q. Also, can I get samples of products at a discount to do reviews? I plan on doing video reviews
      -> YES, You can do the review for your own products as video or any form.

      I hope you got the answers you were seeking.

    Hello, please I had a question
    I am a new seller on wish, how long does it take to make the first sale on wish, or to get many views or exclosure

    • Avatar for Mohsin

      Hello Oyedele,
      Congratulations on choosing Wish. The answer to your question that 'how long does it take to make the first sale on the Wish marketplace' -Well, if your product data is up-to-date and it has a meaningful description with more than 2-3 images of the product with a reasonable price including the shipping, it will be anytime soon. It is usually a matter of days until the search engines of the Wish Marketplace analyze your products and soon you'll be getting orders more frequently.

    • Avatar for Mohsin

      Hey Oleksandr,
      Unfortunately, for now, the Wish marketplace only supports a single store which means that you can not create a second store on Wish using your data.

      But there is a special relaxation of sub-accounts for stores that have multiple employees that manage operations of the store. These accounts can manage the operation of your store but cannot change or see your payment information. A sub-account has a separate email, phone number, and Two Factor Authentication (2FA) setting from the main account.

      I hope you got the answer you were looking for.

      If you need to know more on how to sell on wish or have questions regarding the sub-account setup, get in touch with our support team @

    I sell on eBay for the last 17 years and on a local selling site in Ireland for the last 5 years.
    I do not have my own website. Can I sell on Wish?

    • Avatar for Mohsin

      Hey Oly,
      Indeed you can sell on wish marketplace.
      Well looking at your concern to do so, you need to follow this 3 step process:

      Step 1: You need to apply for a wish seller account (the steps are given in the blog only)
      Step 2: You need to create a store since you have products listed on eBay so you have to get the details of those products ( its highly suggested you choose Magento for that)
      Step 3: Once you retrieve all the products listed on your eBay panel to your store, then list the same products to Wish Seller Panel through the Magento Integration.

      Another benefit would be that you can list the same products on any number of marketplaces or platforms in the future.

      I hope you got your answer

      For assistance in doing the above process you are welcomed to contact our support team at:
      lisasmith@cedcommerce.com or
      harshalyadav@cedcommerce.com

    When a purchase of my item has been made do I send the item direct to the customer or I send to Wish and Wish packages and send to the customer?

    • Avatar for Mohsin

      Well, you have both the options available on wish. But in case you want to use Wish Delivery System you have to send your products to wish-fulfillment centers beforehand. In short you have to keep your stocks there and keep replenishing them as soon as they get sold.
      Otherwise, you are more than welcome to manage the fulfillment and delivery all by yourself.
