Once the customer has purchased the product which was added in the Wishlist, it should be automatically removed from the Wishlist. The processing step lets you choose the option of how you would like it to be removed from the customer’s wishlist.You can either choose automatically and the plugin will remove it for the users or you can select manual and the product will be added to the wishlist until the user removes it manually.
Step 6: Share
This option lets your customers share the wishlist on various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter , whatsapp etc. You can simply turn the buttons off, if in case you would like to remove any of these options.
