How Wish app works

Wish is an e-commerce application that differentiates itself from the competition in the way it works. Regarding its distribution platform, there are some details worth noting.

For example, Wish only acts as an intermediary. The company does not need large facilities to store the products it sells, as all it does is put users in contact with sellers. Of course, this does not exempt it from liability. If a purchase is not successfully completed, either because the product is lost in shipment or for any other reason, Wish responds to the user and provides the necessary assistance to solve the problem.

On the other hand, Wish does not handle the packaging and shipping of the product. These are tasks that depend on the salesperson. Most of the items sold on Wish come from China. As a result, shipping time is usually quite long, except for selected products. It is also interesting to note that Wish uses a recommendation algorithm to display the most suitable products in each case. Also, it invests heavily in targeted advertising to attract new users.

All of these points are closely related to the system Wish uses when selling products. But what about its application? how can you use it properly?
