Think of Wisher like your personal wish registry you can use all year round.
Your friends and family can access your Wisher profile at any point and grant a wish for you or contribute money. We think it’s perfect for birthdays, gap year travel, a new house, a holiday with your friends. Use it for absolutely anything.
- You have a dream for which you need money to realise
- You know exactly what you want and you want to make it easy for people to gift to you. Perfect for Christmas
- You want a more meaningful gifts like a course or an once in a lifetime experience
- You have a birthday party for your child and you think Wisher is a practical solution to help other mums buy the rights gifts
- Your family lives all over the world and they want to be generous
We recommend creating a few wishes based on your interests to help other people gift the things you love.
You can add wishes to your profile by exploring Wisher, clicking on an item and “wishing it” in your home feed.
If you aren’t sure what a product or experience is on the Wisher feed – click through to the retailer to read more about it.
You can tap on the “+” icon in the middle of the app and this will take you to a screen where you can put in text on what your wish is. It will then take you to Google to link it to a ‘url”.
Great Question! Your friends and family can find you on Wisher and follow you. You will get a notification once that happens. At this point they can view all your wishes made in real time under “friend’s wishes” on the home screen.
Of course! You can make changes to your wishes at any time. Click on “edit” and delete it from your profile. However, please keep in mind that once an item has been purchased, you cannot remove it.
Once you add an item from another store to your Wisher, we’ll direct your friends and family to that store to buy the gift for you.
You’ll only know if a gift has been bought once you physically receive it.
The Gifter needs to buy it directly and either send it to you in the post or give it to you in person. When this has been done you can move your wish to “wish granted” by tapping on the edit button and the “move to granted”.
In the “Granted tab” you can now keep track of all the wishes that was granted to you previously and by who.
Once you have created your Wisher profile, you’ll see “make a group wish” button and you have the ability to make a group wish where you’ll be able to invite people to contribute.
Creating your own fund is super simple. Click on the “+ Make a group wish” button, and you’ll see a screen where you’ll be able to describe your wish, add an expiry date, set an amount and tag the occasion.
The minimum amount you can collect is: 100 EURO’S or £90 or US$80.
There is no maximum amount you can collect. However, if you are looking to collect more than a 1000 EURO’s, £900 0r US$800 you’ll need to show proof of ID before cashing in the funds.
Inside the EEA you will need to send us passport, national identity card, driving licence, resident permit from third-country, Nationals in the European Union. Outside the EEA your passport is compulsory, driving licence for USA and Canada accepted
Where is the money held in the period I’m collecting the funds?
The money is held in a cash wallet with our 3rd party payment service provider. Please see the payment terms and conditions here: http://www.wisher.com/mango_payment_terms/
We ask that you close your cash fund from your Wisher account at least 3 business days in advance. We want to make sure you receive your money when you need them. After your first cash transfer, this process should take about 3 business days, depending on your bank.
Of course! Even if the contribution amount has been 100% gifted, you will still receive whatever amount has been gifted to you.
For every transaction, we get charged a fee by the credit card company and the credit card processor. The Giver will pay 3% card charges on each cash contribution.
Passing this fee lets us continue to offer you the ability to register for cash funds. Without this fee, we’d be losing money on every cash gift, and would have to stop offering this service.
When cashing in Wisher will take a total of 3% of your total cash amount collected. This once again covers the payment service to our financial partner, MangoPay.
The Wisher App is completely free of charge. When a wish is created and paid for in a partner store, it is absolutely free of charge. We don’t take any fees. The transaction is between the buyer and the retailer.
Wisher takes a 3% fee when you cash out to your bank account to cover the service fees to our payments service provider.
Just copy the magic link of your wish and paste it to your post in a social network, add supporting copy about your wish and tag friends! You can also find the wish link in when sharing it via e-mail to yourself from the app.
May I stop my cash fund?
Yes, log in to Wisher, open your wish and tap on “close funds”. You can do this at any point – even if you didn’t get the full amount.
- Spread information about the wish in all social networks you use! Twitter, Facebook,
- Send private e-mails and messages….WhatsApp works like a dream!

For Gift Givers
Click on the “Friends” icon in the navigation bar, and enter in the name of the person you’re looking for.
Search your friend’s profile, find a wish you want to grant on their profile. Tap on “buy it”. It will now take you directly to the online retailer where you need to purchase the gift directly and get it delivered to your friend’s address or get it delivered to yours.
Wisher doesn’t deal with any of the shopping, delivery or refunds of gifts. Wisher merely acts as the portal.
No, this is the magic of Wisher! Ensure to tap on the tab “Mark as granted” to move the wish over to the person’s “granted tab”. They won’t be able to see that this has been done. Hence the surprise of gift giving remains.
Absolutely! If you’ve contributed to a group gift, the person will receive an in-app notification containing your individual contribution amount.
Yes, completely safe. Your contact information is confidential, and Wisher will never store it or share it with a third party.
Same goes for your credit card information. Wisher does not store or encrypt your credit card data. All of our online transactions are put through a secure third party server run by MangoPay.
All data are strictly protected. Our technology partner Microsoft Azure provides the highest standard of data storage and processing security, while cooperation with Mangopay electronic money secures transactions via the Internet.
