How To Delete Wish Search History?

How To Delete Wish Search History? 

If you love online shopping and you enjoy buying stuff that is regularly not found in the local stores, then you have probably heard of Wish and used it. Wish has the option to remember each and every of your searched items so you can find them at any time, but as you are no longer interested in an item, you want a different browsing history. So, how can you delete Wish search history? 

There is no direct way to delete your search history on Wish. However, there are ways to remove items that are no longer in your interest. So, you can replace the search history list by searching for new items and replacing the old ones. Also, you can remove previous orders from order history.  

In the article below, I will explain how you can delete your search history on Wish once you do not need it anymore, and you want a change in your browsing items. I will provide the process step by step, so you can easily get the wanted option done. It is quite simple, so it will not require any additional tools, and it will take only a few seconds. 

How To Delete Wish Search History? 

The search history that is created on a website can be quite convenient since you search for a lot of items during the day but you cannot remember all of them. At that point, the search history becomes very useful since you can easily find the item you have previously browsed. This feature is especially useful on websites like Wish because it offers a lot of different stuff, and it can be significantly hard to remember all of them. 

However, once you search for a specific item your browsing page changes and shows you more products similar to the one you have searched for. This is great for seeing all of the options out there, so you could decide which item will suit your needs the best. It is great until you make the purchase, and end up with the same items on your browsing page, even though you do not need the recommendations anymore.     

Unlike some other websites where you search for stuff and later delete the search history, Wish does not have the direct option to do that. There is no button that will allow you to get rid of the search history with one click, as it is possible for many sites through the internet. However, that does not mean that you will be left with the same stuff on your browsing page forever because of your search history.

Luckily for Wish fans, there are options that allow you to delete the items from your browsing page that you are no longer interested in. Once you do that, your browsing page will again show only the products that you want to see and browse. 

Replace The Search Items

Replacing the old search items with new ones can help you change the products you see on your browsing page. This is a more time-consuming process, however, it is proven that it works. This will help you get rid of unwanted items, so you could continue browsing something that is more of your interest at a particular moment. 

As I mentioned, it may take more of your time because to accomplish this you need to search for a certain amount of items, so they could show up in your search history list. Since the search history list contains 15 items, you will need to search for 15 new ones in order to replace the old ones. 

Remove Orders From Order History

This is another way of removing items that are no longer of your interest. Since I established that you cannot delete search history directly, you can get rid of orders that you have already placed and you do not need those particular products anymore. Therefore, you should remove the previous orders from order history, and that will enable your browsing page to experience changes in items. 

There are two ways to do that since you can use different devices. Below, you have the steps to clear your order history either on a desktop computer or on a smartphone.  

Removing Orders Using A Desktop Computer

  1. Open your browser and head over to your Wish account.
  2. Click on the three-line icon at the top of the page. 
  3. Choose ‘Order History’. 
  4. Select the trash bin icon and approve the removal of a particular order. 

Removing Orders Using A Smartphone 

  1. Open the Wish application on your smartphone.
  2. Find the main menu of the app. On Androids, you can find it in the upper left corner, while on iOS, it is in the lower right corner. 
  3. Choose ‘Order History’
  4. Choose from the list of orders which one you want to remove. 
  5. Confirm the removal of the order. 

Remove Items From Wishlist 

The final thing you can do to get rid of the previous items from your search history is by removing items you have saved in your Wishlist. This is quite easy since you only have to edit your Wishlist and remove everything you do not want or do not need anymore. This will help your browser page to make the needed changes. 

Therefore, you will need to go to your Wish account and head over to the Wishlist. Once you are on the page, you should choose ‘Edit Wishlist’ and check the boxes next to the items you want to remove from it. Once you are finished, you need to confirm the editing, and click ‘Done’

This way, the items you have already purchased or you are no longer interested in will not be shown on the browser page anymore. 

Even though you do not have the option to clear search history on Wishlist directly, you have the possibility to change the items that are shown on your browser page. That way, your browser page will not include the same stuff all the time.
