Wish Nigeria Buyer’s Guide | This post contains how to shop on Wish from Nigeria and get goods delivered to your doorstep.

Wish is an online shopping site that brings sellers closer to buyers, before now Wish doesn’t allow items to be shipped to Nigeria due to reasons best known to them. The whole online space could be a bit scary when you consider the level of scam activities happening every day online. For this ultimate reason, many are scared of buying items online.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Starting from March 1, 2022, Wish.com and Wish app are no longer accepting orders in Nigeria. It means you can no longer buy things from Wish.com or Wish app and ship to Nigeria.

Wish is one of the biggest e-commerce marketplaces in the United States by sales. They are one of the rare online shopping sites that allows you to buy and ship to Nigeria with ease. Just like AliExpress, Wish is known for showing off items at mouth drooling prices with the possibility of shipping from Nigeria and getting them delivered to your doorstep.

In today’s article, I will show you how to shop on Wish from Nigeria and get it delivered to your doorstep or the nearest post office in your LGA.

Wish.com Buyer’s Guide: How to Shop on Wish From Nigeria (Step by Step Guide)

Step 1: Create a Wish.com account

create a wish account
Create a wish account

Of course like other online shopping sites, the first thing you should do is create your account on the platform. There three ways to create an account but I recommend using Facebook or Google account creation which automatically creates an account with just a single click.

You can get 50% off when you sign up and use the code (cbjgynjx) for your first purchase.

Step 2: Search for products

wish search
Search for an item

Browse the site, search by categories or by typing keywords associated with the specific item you are planning to buy.

Step 3: Select Item

Click the item you are buying to be redirected to the product page. Check the product details to see if it conforms to your specifications.

Product page

What details would you see on the product page?

  1. Price: This is the original price per unit of the item you are buying.
  2. Discount Price: There are instances where the item you are buying is on sale; in that case, this is the price you would pay per unit of the item you choose to buy.
  3. Colour/Size: This shows the colours and sizes available for you to choose.
  4. Shipping: This shows the available shipping method to choose from. Prices will vary depending on the shipping company you will prefer.
  5. Quantity: This is where to place the quantity of your order.
  6. Total Price: The total amount you will pay for that particular order.

Step 4:  Check product reviews and seller’s credibility

One of the most important aspects of online shopping is product review and ratings. People who already purchased this item must have shared a review, and you as a new buyer ought to check that out before making a verdict if it’s worth your money.

Slowly scroll down the product page to check out the reviews.

Check product reviews
Check product reviews

Before you add an item to your cart for purchase, I implore that you check store ratings to know how credible the seller is. This is quite necessary to avoid stories that touch.

Store ratings

You can scroll down while still on the product page to see the Store Ratings of the seller before placing an order, make sure to do a background check.

Step 5: Select the shipping method

Choose the shipping method you prefer. There are items that offer free shipping but this would normally take a lot of time before your order will arrive. Or you may opt to choose the method that will cost you extra cost but will take your order delivery faster and delivered at your doorstep. If you opt to choose free shipping normally your items will be delivered to your nearest post office.

Take note: What you paid for only covers the cost of item and shipping. Customs duties would be paid differently depending on your  local post office.

Step 6: Add to Wishlist or buy

Add to Wishlist or buy

When you’re done accessing the item to know if you are satisfied with reviews from other shoppers, you can then proceed to add to Wishlist (for those who look to buy more items) or clicking BUY to checkout a single item.

Before proceeding to the next step, remember that Wish.com allows you to apply coupon upon checking out your purchase.

Coupons are discount codes that give a cut on price upon checking out an item. If you are new on Wish.com, you can use this code >> CBJGYNJX to get a 50% discount on your first purchase.

Step 7: Fill Shipping Address

Moving from step 5, you will be presented with a page requesting you to fill in the relevant shipping information. Make sure you enter the right address, telephone number and ZIP code.

When choosing a postal code, bear in mind that the wrong postal code can affect the delivery of your item. For example, if you live in Lagos and enter an Abuja postal/ZIP code, just know that your package would be shipped to Abuja. Most times, it’s better and safer to enter the default postal code for Lagos (100001) which means your item would be shipped straight to GPO Ikeja (the headquarter of post offices in Lagos) before packages would be sent to their local branches and then delivered to you.

However, you can refer to the image uploaded above, then choose the right postal code to help your packages get delivered straight to your local post office.

Step 8: Fill in payment details

On the checkout page, choose your preferred payment option, this could be a credit card to PayPal or others, complete the required details then click Next.

Step 9: Review and Place order

Click Place Order after you have reexamined all the required information.

Step 10: Await shipping

It takes about 5 days for your order to be shipped, patiently wait for the supplier to ship your order; you can also contact Wish support for more information about your item.

Contact support

Step 11: Keep track of your order


After the seller has shipped your order, Wish would notify you when he item tracking information would be available. Once available, you can track your order. Once you have received the full shipment of your order, inspect all items carefully. Don’t forget to leave a positive or negative review for other prospective buyers.

Step 12: Pick up or delivery

This is the last piece of the puzzle. A lot of questions have emanated from this step. Let me explain. If you read through the comment box below, you’d understand that receiving an item bought on wish.com can be a heck of a struggle.

What happens when your items get to Nigeria? The Likeliest possibility is receiving a call from the post office nearest to you that you have a package. Or perhaps, you can visit the post office to check if your item has arrived. Before leaving, please ensure to take along a valid means of identification (ID Card) and a small amount of money you’d pay for processing/handling.

If you’re in doubt, here is an item I picked up from the post office (Ijesha-tedo branch) in Nigeria, I was charged N500 for an item that weighed less than 1kg.

Have you started shipping goods from the US? Have you previously bought something online from Wish? Do you have helpful tips for people who are new to Wish online shopping?

If you have answers to these questions, I’d be glad if you will take a few secs to help others learn more about how to shop on Wish from Nigeria.

  1. Comment:I bought good on whish from Nigeria and they deliver it to America, and the are telling me that I’ve received the good, What’s wrong?

  2. Please, is shipping to Ogun state also available or it’s only Lagos, Abuja etc? Also if you have.idea on ways to ship from.1688, you can help. Thanks.

  3. I ordered some items that have ” just pay shipping’. About a week I got an email that all the items were not longer available whereas they are still available for sale on the platform. Does it mean they don’t ship cheap items to Nigeria?

    • If the order was cancelled it means they are out of stock. I guess sometimes, merchants on Wish are slow to updated an out-of-stock item on the platform.
      I suggest you look for another seller of a similar item on that platform.
      I hope this helps.
      Good luck and be careful when you order there, there are lots of low-quality items there. Read descriptions and check reviews as well before paying.

  4. I order goods and they keep on asking for zip code , and a friend of my give me his coupon number to add it what does that mean

    • I explained this in the post. However, ZIP codes or postal codes in Nigeria are made up of six numeric digits, the first digit is the regional code with the last three digits representing the delivery location. You can find your ZIP code online by searching on Google.

      Regarding your friend sending you a coupon code, these are basically discount/referral codes, it’s a code that gives you a discount when you make your first successful purchase, meanwhile, your friend gets a few $$ for his next shopping. Do you get it?

  5. Hi, I try to pay my money for my items on wish but it’s was just rejecting my card (debit), I even try to use my PayPal account to make payments but it’s not going at all, and some of my products are just getting sold out already. Please help me with this ASAP. 🙏🙏🙏

  6. Hello

  12. I ordered for an item on the 16th of may and it was supposed to be delivered June 25 maximum. I didn’t get it so 5th July I chatted with customer care and they asked me to wait till after 14days. Three days after I got a refund of my money in my Nigerian bank account. Am so glad.

  13. While buying from wish is it necessary that someone must have MyUS account or it can still be delivered to the delivery/shipping address that I put there?
    Because I heard someone saying that wish doesn’t deliver straight to Nigerian address, pls clarify me about it

    • Wish actually delivers to Nigeria but lately, a lot of people have been having items cancelled and refunded due to lengthy delivery time. If MyUS works best for you, use them.

  14. Please I have a problem
    I ordered from wish now and the ZIP code I use is not that correct while the address only contained state alone, without local government
    Hope my wish product would be at a place where I can claim it off or I would just forget about the order
    Please I need your help urgent

  15. I wanna order from wish but dunno if if it will be delivered before school resumption cus I live in warri but school in ph

  16. Hello please i ordered some items on wish and some have been shipped while some hasn’t and I’m patiently waiting for the others to be shipped but I’m a bit worried because i didn’t make use of myUS.com
    Is that something to be worried about? And would i get my items please even during this pandemic?

    • My parcels were set to deliver from today till 12 of june since March 21 and I have gotten any update on any of these goods.

    • My brother do not border doing that. You see that wish. They are fraudulent. Sometimes, when you make purchases they deliver. Other times, they don’t deliver. If you then request for refunds for purchases you made that you never got, they will block or restrict your account after giving you your refund saying you have violated their returns and refunds. They use some their customers bank cards saved on their site to make unauthorized purchases especially for those that are not living in the US. You will just see debit alert stating you bought an item, sometimes with an address you don’t know, other times without an address or order history. Not everybody experiences all what I described but the question is, how would you know if you will be one of their scapegoats or not. Why risk it in the first place? There are other sites you can make purchases where your card details wouldn’t be stolen. And no matter what you do, do not ask for a refund to your wish cash. Let it be sent to your bank. If you doubt. Go and Google wish.com customer complaints.

  17. I have cancelled my order but I have not got refund, I did the cancellation just 1hr after my purchase, please when will I get refund. And is there no fone number to call d office

  18. Hi Viklin, thanks for this enlightenment. Please do you think I can use my school I.D for account verification?

  19. Hi, good morning.
    Thanks for all the info so far, I have been really enlightened. But, please do you think I can use my school i.d for verification? Thanks.

  20. Good afternoon admin and good wirk you are doing here.

    Pkease do you know if Wish still take in orders and do their shipping amidst this pandemic?

  21. Please, kindly send me your wish agent in Ñigerstate contact phone number,when I bought a smart wrist watch he delivered it to me,l want to buy another product and l lost his contact

  22. This is the fourth time I’m experiencing this, my items was refunded without cancelling my orders and I’m still waiting for the refund, why is it always like this? Is it that I my account wasn’t verified or what and I didn’t see where verification sign is in my account, please help, tell me what to do,, thanks

  23. My first order on Wish, the estimated time elapsed yet the goods weren’t delivered. I gave them two weeks extra, after which I canceled the order and got refunded. Just too time consuming (almost 3 months)

  24. I have sent the national ID card picture to the website and they replied me with” thank you for contacting wish your email will be revised in 2/3 days time”
    Can i start purchasing some other things now or i should wait for their response

  25. Please did you delivered your product to Kano state and where is your office address, because I have make some orders

    • Coupons are discount codes that give a cut on price upon checking out an item. If you are new on Wish.com, you can use this code >> cbjgynjx to get a 50% discount on your first purchase.

  26. Please I have been waiting for my delivery since January 1 and I haven’t heard from it keeps saying it’s at facility every time I check abs also I used another zip code that isn’t close to my address so should I go check the post office close to my address and also the post office close to the zip code /postal code ? Thanks

  27. Hi please I ordered an item from wish. It’s processing but my mastercard has not been debited. What should I do? It’s not up to 5 hours since I placed the order. Should I keep waiting ?

  28. Good Evening and thank you for this explanation.
    I didn’t get the part of I.D card and so but i tried to order something and I don’t quite understand the meaning of the billing zip code. It pops out “There was a problem processing your credit card.Please contact your card provider or try another card”.

    • Thanks for visiting and dropping a comment. For your questions;

      1. Wish requires a sort of ID verification for users in Nigeria. If requested, kindly follow my explanations.
      2. A ZIP Code is a series of letters or digits or both, sometimes including spaces or punctuation, included in a postal address for the purpose of sorting mail. Zip code is also known and used interchangeably as postal code, postcode or post code. An example of a ZIP code for Surulere, Lagos Nigeria is 101283. Kindly use Google to find your locality/LGA ZIP.
      3. Regarding your card issues, kindly contact the bank or try using another recommended card if you can.
    • I receive most of my deliveries at home. The post office deliveryman would most likely call you to let you know when it’s best to deliver. In the case of delayed delivery, you can visit the post office yourself and yes, go with your ID card just incase.

  29. Pls I want a contact person or number in Nigeria for wish. I ordered for some items and the address I used will be difficult to trace will l get a call when my orders arrive? And what happens if the call is not through with our epileptic network in Nigeria?

    • Wish is an American site, hence there is no contact person in Nigeria. You can reach out to them via their support email, you will find it in the post FAQs section.

  30. I ordered for an item mistakenly its already being shipped can’t get a refund pls can i get a refund once it get shipped.

  31. I have screen shots my transaction details for many times.on since 27 Dec, 2019 but still yet to receive my order. Please help

    • It will come, just relax, I made orders since on the 19th of Dec., some of the items I ordered are yet to come, as a matter of fact I have only received two out of the many I ordered

      • Halima please can you enlighten on how to make orders and the rest
        I need someone who has ordered something from wish in Nigeria to assist me

  32. Pls i need help, i think shipping takes 5 days, but since 17th of December it says departed to the destination country, what can i do. Should i go to the nearest post office and check. Although they the item will arrive by Jan 1 till Jan 31.

  33. I didn’t use the right zip code but I entered the right address. I had tried to contact them and they said it was late as my items had already shipped. Do you think this could make me not to receive my items?

  34. For heavy items like washing machines or goods of those nature will they deliver it at the post office or leave it in Lagos for you to go clear?

  35. Don’t they do payment on delivery??? Why I asked was because I have been doppe before based on online shopping, I will be glad to know if they do payment on delivery.

  36. I make an order on wish and since 5th of this month when I track the package it keep on saying departed from the airport to the destination country please what does that mean and secondly can I still have any information on that package although the delivery date given to me is on 18 the of December

    • If I understand you properly, do you mean your shipping address ZIP / postal code? If yes, then simply search for it via Google, for example; I will type “Surulere, Lagos ZIP code” to get zip code(s) for all the streets in that LGA.

  37. I purchased some goods from wish, and after three days I received message from PayPal that my money has been refunded and I didn’t cancell my order. Can you help me out pls

    • Okay, I experienced the same thing when I shopped for the very first time. Here is what to do:

      Kindly send an email to their support team ([email protected]) regarding this issues or contact their support through their website, for every new customer registered from Nigeria, you will need to verify your account by sending a copy of your photograph and full name used when registering your account. In my case, I verified it using my PVC (Voter’s card). After confirmation, your account should be verified and you can successfully make purchases on Wish.com.

  38. Please I noticed I didn’t put the right zip code for my first order, and the shipping process have started
    Am from Nigeria
    Please wat should I do now ?

  39. Comment:
    hi,am really not getting it….what and what will I be charged for?…after I check out, I will gill the necessary info…the total amount is it including shipping Nd d cost of the goods alone?
    And, I stay in Okigwe,how then will I get it and what’s Okigwe postal code

  40. I just ordered some items tonight and I was given free shipping fee from the mobile app…

    Does that mean I’ll get my goods delivered to closest post office or I’ll have to pick it from Port at Lagos??? Or will it be delivered like jumia to my personal address (which I filled)???

    • All of the following. Most times, it gets delivered to the post office while they delegate someone to deliver it to your doorstep with you paying a token to the delivery man.

Hey fam, don't go without a reply!
