With 300 million customers and counting, selling on Wish in 2020 is an attractive opportunity for eCommerce sellers across the world.

To help you get started with selling on Wish, we’ve created this walk-through guide on how to sign up, set up and start making profits. Let’s jump right in.

Back to basics: what is Wish?

Wish is a mobile commerce platform that enables shoppers to browse and buy items from third-party sellers, through a customised feed on its shopping app.

Founded in San Fransisco in 2010, Wish has experienced phenomenal growth over the past ten years, particularly in North America and across Europe.

Shoppers using the app receive a personalised feed that’s continuously updated in response to buying and browsing behaviour. This makes Wish extremely popular with Millenials and Gen Z, who represent 60% of its customer base.

Why sell on Wish?

If more than 300 million customers weren’t enough, there are plenty of other reasons for selling on the Wish mobile marketplace, including:

? Access to shoppers in more than 80 countries

? 10 million daily active users

? 2 million orders per day

? Only 200,000 active merchants on the platform

? 1st and 2nd shopping app on Google Play and Apple app stores

And, if you require yet more convincing, how about this. Mobile commerce is growing at three times the rate of eCommerce. Being on a mobile-first online marketplace now, allows you to establish brand dominance before m-commerce overtakes eCommerce; which won’t be long.

How much does it cost to sell on Wish?

Selling on Wish costs a one-time registration fee of $2,000 and a 15% revenue share charge on total order costs. There is no monthly or annual subscription and no product listing fee.

However, for a limited time only, if you register with Wish via Expandly, the revenue share is reduced to 5% for the first three months. Also, you’ll receive £100 promotional ProductBoost credit (more on that later) and extra impressions for free.

Plus, until 20 April 2020, the $2,000 fee is also being waived, making now the ideal time to join the platform.
