The second way to purchase Wishlists for WP eCommerce is via the WP eCommerce extensions page. Then you’ll get a download to upload to your site.


If you purchased through the marketplace inside WP eCommerce then the plugin will be installed for you.

If you purchased on the WP eCommerce site, then you’ll need to go to the plugins screen on your WordPress install and click ‘Add New’ at the top of the page.

From there you can click on an individual wishlist entry and see the products that have been saved along with the user that has saved those products for later purchase.
