As some of you may have seen a few weeks ago, Wishlisting has been acquired by Wishpot. John and I are very excited about joining the Wishpot team and helping to create the best social shopping experience on the web.
To our Wishlisting users, don’t worry, there are no plans for it to go away. In fact, you may have noticed the increase in the number of stores we support for price drop notifications. This is because we’re working on leveraging some of the same technologies for both sites.
While some of our users have enjoyed the simplicity of the “have it” and “want it” options on Wishlisting, others have asked for more sophisticated options such as the ability to create and manage multiple wishlists for different things. We’d encourage you to check out Wishpot if you’re looking for some of those more advanced features. Thank you all for your support! As always, feel free to send in comments with questions, suggestions, and feedback.
