#AmazonWishList lets you build wish list without leaving Twitter


In anticipation of the holiday shopping season, Amazon has introduced #AmazonWishList, which allows customers to add items to their Amazon Wish List without leaving Twitter.

Customers who find Tweets with an product links will be able to add those products to their Amazon Wish List by replying on Twitter with #AmazonWishList.

“Twitter offers Amazon customers a great environment for inspiration and discovery,” said John Yurcisin, director of social at Amazon. “#AmazonWishList makes it easy for people to quickly add holiday gifts, décor or entertaining items tweeted by interesting people, friends, or brands on Twitter to their Amazon Wish List, allowing customers to simply save items to their Wish List and keep on Tweeting.”

Building on the recent launch of #AmazonCart, customers who have already connected their Twitter and accounts will be notified with a reply Tweet from @MyAmazon as well as an email from Amazon when the item is successfully added to their Wish List. Customers who have not connected their Twitter and accounts will receive a reply Tweet asking them to connect their accounts to enable the new feature.

According to the online giant, Amazon Wish List continues to be one of the most popular places on the site for online and mobile shoppers during the holidays. Last holiday, Amazon customers added seven books and five toys every second to Amazon Wish Lists.

Other features of Amazon Wish List include:

  • A new Save-A-Photo feature that enables customers to snap a picture of anything from anywhere and save it to their Amazon Wish List;

  • Universal Wish List Add-on, which enables customers to add anything from any online site to their Amazon Wish List with an add-on available for any browser;

  • A Don’t Spoil My Surprises feature that does not reveal to the Wish List creator which items have been purchased. Once an item from an Amazon Wish List is purchased, other shoppers will see only what remains on the Wish List, avoiding duplicate gifts; and

  • Virtual Notes, which allows customers to save an idea and search for it later by adding a virtual note to an Amazon Wish List.
