Microsoft Store to Get Shopping Cart, Wish List Improvements

Posted on November 6, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10, Xbox One with 12 Comments

Microsoft announced that it is bringing improvements to the Shopping Cart and Wish List experiences in its online stores for Windows 10, Xbox One, and the web.

“We are always looking for ways to improve the discoverability and purchase of the products and services we sell,” Microsoft’s Chris Swenson announced. “Today, we are excited to announce that customers can begin using our improved Shopping Cart and later this week, our new Wish List, two of the most-requested features from our fans.”

Microsoft added the Shopping Cart and Wish List features to the Microsoft Store back in August. But with this new update, rolling out soon, both features are getting significant updates.

The Shopping Cart originally worked with games and apps, but it will now support other items in the store, like hardware and accessories, across Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, and the web. It’s also persistent across each platform.

Likewise, Wish List is being updated to support both digital and physical items, and it will be persistent across each platform as well. The Wish List will also support sale pricing, so you’ll always get the best price.

These features are being tested across the Xbox Insiders and Windows 10 Insider Preview programs and will be made publicly available in the coming weeks, Microsoft says.
