Creating your Wishlist on Buy Me a Coffee is easy. Whether you have your eye on something you'd love to purchase or have specific goals that require financial backing, we recommend you set up your Wishlist. To help you get started, here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Access your account dashboard and navigate to the Wishlist tab.

  2. Click on "Add a Wishlist item" to open a form where you can provide the necessary details.

  3. Fill in the item's name, price, and include an image if you have one.

  4. Customize your Wishlist further by adding a note that explains why you need the item and how you plan to use it. The more details, the better; it helps your supporters get excited about your goal.

  5. Consider adding a confirmation message to express your gratitude to those who fund your Wishlist. This message will be displayed when someone contributes.

  6. If you'd like to notify your followers about your Wishlist, utilize the "Notify followers" option. They will receive an email with the details of your Wishlist.

  7. Once you've filled in all the necessary information, hit the publish button.

Voila! Your item will now be added to the Wishlist tab on your page, and you can enjoy receiving funding for your desired items.


How can I promote my wishlist?

Copy your item link to your social bios (Instagram, Twitter, Twitch, etc.). You can also directly promote it to your Facebook and Twitter pages.

Can I enlist an item without an image?

Yes, but showing people what they'll be helping you buy is inspiring and motivating! Your product image is what others will see when your wishlist is shared and will help make an excellent first impression.

What can I add to my wishlist?

Your wishlist can be anything that helps your creative journey. It could be a book, hardware, or a piece of equipment... pretty much anything you dream up can find a place on your wishlist.

How to edit/remove a wishlist item?

Head over to the wishlist tab in your account dashboard. Find the wishlist item, and click on the hamburger menu on the right to find the edit/deactivate options. Deactivated items will no longer be displayed to your page visitors. However, if you wish to bring them back, you can use the reactivate option (Click on the hamburger menu next to the deactivated item).
