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.

  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 the 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.

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.

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 which 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

  6. 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

  7. 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 ?

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

    • 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Please I noticed I didn’t put the right zip code for my first order, and the shipping process have started
    Am from Nigeria

  19. Comment:

    And, I stay in Okigwe,how then will I get it and what’s Okigwe postal code

  20. 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.
