Fix the wish list


The wish list is not functional on the app. Every time I open it, the items appear in a different order. This means that I need to scroll through the entire list every item to find what I want. If I move to cart or remove an item from my wishlist, the list is re-ordered and the items appear in a different order again.

To clarify (because your FB team did not understand this no matter how hard I tried), when I say order or re-order or different order, I mean the sequence in which the items appear.

The wishlist is impossible to work with. No filtering option, no sorting option. It’s the middle button on your app (meaning it’s what you think users use most often or what you want us to use most often) and the user experience is ghastly. I’ve stopped adding things to my wishlist because it’s actually a deep dark hole.

Developer Response

Hi there, we have noted the issue with the re-ordering of the wishlist. Please keep an eye out for an update regarding this in the near future. We appreciate your feedback and in the meantime don't be shy in voicing any other issues you come across. We strive to create the best shopping experience for all our customers 😀

Unavailable options - listed options always sold out


I wanted to buy some dummies for my daughter but 80% of the options listed are unavailable for purchase or "sold out". What is the use of having all these options that I need to waste time sifting through just so that I can choose between the meager options available? I thought the options might be updated once you got more stock in but this seems to be a permanent feature of your app as it has remained this way for months. Another issue is that your running shoes seem to prominently come in really small sizes. Like size 3. What's the use if you are not going to cater for the average size foot? There are also a lot of "sold out" options for me to not be able to choose from there also. Very disappointing. Please can you fix this?
