Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to connect my Twitter account?
By connecting your Twitter and Amazon accounts, you are telling Amazon that #AmazonWishList requests coming from your Twitter account should be added to your Amazon.com Wish List. Without that link, Amazon would not know to which customer’s Wish List to add the item. To edit your connection preferences, visit your Social Settings or opt out of having Amazon respond to your #AmazonWishList requests here (your accounts must be connected in order to opt out).
Will #AmazonWishList work if my Twitter account is protected?
No, #AmazonWishList only works for public Twitter accounts and tweets. If your Twitter account is protected, only your followers can see your tweets. This means that #AmazonWishList won't be able to see your replies and add the item to your Amazon.com Wish List.
Am I buying it when I reply with "#AmazonWishList"?
No, replying with "#AmazonWishList" will only save the item to your Wish List. You can always review or edit your Wish List at a later time. You will also receive a reply tweet from @MyAmazon describing the status of your request (e.g., whether the item was successfully added to your Wish List, if it was out of stock, or how you can finish checking out later).
What Wish List does #AmazonWishList add items to?
#AmazonWishList adds items to a new Wish List named "#AmazonWishList". This makes it easy to quickly find items you added to your Wish List from Twitter.
Who can see what I’ve added to my Wish List?
Most content is public on Twitter, so your #AmazonWishList replies will be visible to whomever you replied, to those viewing the conversation, and on your own Timeline (unless your Twitter account is set to private, in which case #AmazonWishList will not work).
Does #AmazonWishList work on digital products?
Yes, #AmazonWishList will work on digital products. For ebooks and apps, #AmazonWishList will add the digital item to your Wish List, just like any physical product. For Amazon Instant Video and Prime Instant Video titles, using #AmazonWishList will add that title to your Watchlist, which is different than your Wish List. You can view your Amazon Watchlist here.
What if I have more questions?
Feel free to direct any other questions you may have about #AmazonWishList to @AmazonHelp on Twitter, or visit www.amazon.com/help for general questions.
