How do I create a wishlist feature in Virtuemart?
The online shopping experience has continued to evolve over the years, becoming more efficient and more enjoyable for consumers. One of the features of modern online stores is that of the wish list – the ability for customers to save items they are interested in, or products they may wish to buy at a later date.
If you’re a retailer using Virtuemart to sell your products, you can easily enable wishlist functionality for your customers with the help of a few simple steps. Let’s explore how to do it.
Step 1: Install and activate the Wishlist plugin
First, you’ll need to install and activate the SubHall “Wishlist” plugin for Virtuemart. You can download it from the SubHall website and install it on your Virtuemart store.
Once the plugin is installed, you will need to access the “Wishlist” tab inside the Virtuemart backend. Here, you’ll be able to set up the basic settings for the plugin – including the text displayed on the “Add to Wishlist” button, and the name of the user group that’s allowed to access the wishlist feature.
Step 2: Style and customize the “Add to Wishlist” button
The next step is to style and customize the “Add to Wishlist” button, which should appear on each product page. You can use CSS to customize the look and feel of this button, and you can also customize the text displayed on it.
Step 3: Enable user login for wishlist access
Finally, you will need to enable user login for wishlist access. This will allow customers to save products to their personal wishlists, and view these wishlists at any time. Here, you can also customize the texts displayed on the login and logout buttons.
Using these steps, you can easily enable a wishlist feature on your Virtuemart store. This feature can help to improve the shopping experience for your customers, and make it easier for them to save and purchase products at a later date.
