We’ve been working on this for a few months now, and are so happy to announce that our new wishlist functionality at Goulet Pens is now here! While our existing wishlist worked okay, there were definitely a few recurring bugs we couldn’t resolve. Some deleted items kept reappearing… the “zombie wishlist” as we liked to call it, and it didn’t have the ability to break out your list into sublists. We completely switched software and our new wishlist solves these issues and more your experience better.
If you had an existing wishlist on our site, we migrated it over to the new database around April 13th. You may need to re-add anything you’ve added to your wishlist since then. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but this is a one-time thing related to the migration and you shouldn’t have to do this again.
If you don’t already have a wishlist, we have some tips here on how to get started. While we still aren’t shipping at the moment, it’s a great way to save and remember the items you may want to purchase later.
How to Create Your Wishlist
Find a Product
Use the search or navigation to locate the product that you’re interested in. Click on the product to view its product detail page. Under the “Add to Cart” button (or the Coming Soon or Out of Stock button), you’ll see an “Add to Wishlist” button.
Add to a Wishlist
After clicking the button, you’ll see a small pop-up. All products are added to your master “My Wishlist” by default, but you’ll also have the opportunity to create new sub-collections here, and you can add products to multiple lists at a time. Then click “Add to Wishlist”.
View Your Wishlist
At the top of our site, click “My Wishlist” to view it.
This next step is perhaps the least intuitive part: You may get a pop-up prompting you to add an email address. Whether or not you are logged into your account on our site, the wishlist database is actually housed separately, so adding an email address allows you to keep your products synced across devices, and get email reminders if you choose. If you don’t get a pop-up, you can click Settings to make sure your email is set up. If you get an email confirmation validating your address, click the link to finalize setup.
Share Your Wishlist
While viewing your wishlist (or any of your wishlist sub-collections), just click the “Share” link in the upper right corner. You’ll be prompted to email it to a friend, or share a link to it on social media. It will share whichever wishlist sub-collection you have selected.
We hope this was helpful. Feel free to email our Customer Relationship team with any other questions you have!
