It can be very convenient to create a Wishlist if you have many items you wish to purchase from Amazon. It’s easy for family and friends to purchase the items you desire from Amazon through your Wishlist. This can pose a privacy problem if strangers learn your address.
Continue reading to learn more about Amazon Wishlists and how you can keep your address secret when creating your Amazon Wishlist.
How to hide your address on Amazon Wishlist
Your address will not be visible to anyone who visits your Amazon Wishlist. Amazon might share your address with third-party sellers. These sellers may relay your address to customers who buy items from you.
To prevent privacy concerns, you need to ensure that only you and those you trust have access to your Wishlist. Follow these steps to do this:
This will make the list visible only to you. To avoid your address being accidentally shared with strangers, you can still share it with people you know.
How do Amazon Wish Lists work?
Amazon wish lists offer many different features and can be customized. Wishlists can be created for birthdays, weddings, and other occasions.
You can add items to your wishlist so that other people can see your items and make purchases on your behalf. They will then ship them to you. If you are concerned about strangers purchasing your items, you can make the list private (more details later).
You can also allow Alexa to add items from your wishlist. You can disable the setting from your wishlist options screen to prevent Alexa adding items to your wishlist.
While you can’t see who has visited your wish list page, it is possible for you to see how many people have viewed it. If they wish, people who purchase gifts from your wishlist can include their name along with the purchase.
There are options to keep purchased items secret if you create a list for birthdays. The purchase notification will not ruin the surprise of the gift being delivered. Amazon will notify you if an item has been purchased already. This will prevent you from buying items that are already on their delivery.
You can create as many wishlists as you like. Amazon wish lists can be created for other online retailers. This is useful if you are looking for items that cannot be found elsewhere, such as on eBay.
Amazon wish lists can also be used to create baby or wedding registryies. These are useful for keeping track of gifts purchased for baby showers and weddings. This is especially useful if you have a lot of guests and are expecting lots of gifts. Your guests will be able log in to register gifts for the wedding.
Amazon Prime members may sometimes be eligible for discounts when they use the Amazon wedding registry. You can also get discounts on shipping costs for guests who purchase gifts from your registry.
Amazon has a gift advisor that can help you choose the right gifts for your guests. To ensure that the gift advisor can suggest good gifts, it is important to accurately fill in your information. Consolidating registries you have created elsewhere can be done to incorporate them into your Amazon Registry.
Amazon offers a convenient option called ‘group gifting’ that allows friends to buy gifts together and split the cost. This is a great option if you have a lot of expensive goods or appliances that you need after your baby shower.
Amazon Wishlist Does Your Address Show?
Amazon values privacy and respects customers’ privacy. Your full address will not be visible to customers who order using your Wishlist.
This is quite reasonable, as it would pose a serious privacy problem if someone could log in to view private addresses. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Amazon will keep your address secret.
Amazon stores your shipping address. Amazon also shares your address with third-party sellers when you buy items from your Wishlist. Sometimes, the address may be shared with customers.
You can make your Wishlist private to avoid this. It will be only visible to you and the people you have shared it with. The next section will explain the steps involved.
If you make your wish list private, you’ll have to share it with your friends and family.
