My Wishlist. Saving Products for Later

Yes, the Gridbox already has the “Wishlist”. But in today's update, we are introducing a Wishlist that is assigned directly to the user's account. That means with the User Account, your customers have a great opportunity to view and manage products in their wishlist on any other device.
