Introducing big news. We’re making some changes to the Wish Local program. We’ve been listening to store feedback and the voices of 90M+ monthly Wish shoppers. As our community continues to grow, we’re adapting our programs to work better for you and your customers.
What does this mean for your business?
Providing more support for local businesses is our top priority. We are committed to improving the pickup experience for you and for customers.
On November 1, 2021, we will be discontinuing certain features and adding new ones to our program. We are introducing these changes to assist with improving inventory management within the Wish Local App, reduce the excess packages in stores, and boost local foot traffic.
What are the changes to the program?
After careful consideration, we’ve decided to discontinue the following programs and features:
- Sell On Wish
- Pickup Inventory Now
- Local Delivery
- Curbside Pickup
The following programs will continue:
- Ship to Store with in-store pickup
- Reselling uncollected Ship to Store packages
We understand these changes may impact all Wish Local participants. To better help you understand these changes, here are a few FAQs.
