Today, we are launching a new page on the WishSimply website, a wishlist service comparison page. On this page, we will list the main features of various wishlist services. We are so confident about the value of our wishlist service that we are not afraid to name our competitors. Or tell you what they can offer. That is something very few companies dare to do.
Initially, we were planning to do some kind of a reviews and give points to the services to help you see which are the best services out there. Then we though we might be biased, or perceived to be, although we would give our honest and fair opinion. Also lot of the suitability of the particular service to your needs depends of the weight you give to individual features.
So we ended up just listing the features of each service in a nice table. We are might be biased in listing features as well, but probably much less than if we were giving points. We try to be objective and we also listed the reasons or criteria (see the bottom of this post) that are needed to get a check mark for each feature. This kind of transparency would not have be possible if we had just looked at some final scores. Anyway, you can check the wishlist comparison table and choose the wishlist service that has the features you need and appreciate.
Wishlist services are different, and some of you might want to use another list for a particular need. We want to be a good service and help you find another provider if our service does not fulfill your specific needs. For example, you might want a service from which users can purchase items directly and get them shipped to the receiver. This is e.g. a service WishSimply is not going to provide (as stated in our business plan).
Before we got to work on creating this table, we tried to find some comparisons from the internet, but we could not find a good one. So we hope we have done something useful that benefits everybody. If you find the list useful now or later, feel free to share it.
At the moment, the comparison table is quite small, but the idea is to expand the table by adding reviews from time to time. We will add more providers, but also new features that we might come across. I have already composed a list of some 80 services to go through (those that don't have a link don't work anymore). They are listed below.
If you know a good service or feature, please share it with us by commenting on this post.
