The best part of a Shutterlife Wishlist is the ability to get notified via email as soon as an item you want becomes available for purchase on KEH.com. That means you’ll be one of the first people to hear about any rare or hard-to-find items that come into stock, giving you a chance to grab them before anyone else.
You can also use your Wishlist to learn more about the gear you are interested in by using the Tips and Questions feature. Ask anything you want about the item, and Shutterlife will send out a notification to everyone that owns it. Most questions are answered within an hour, and often you’ll get multiple people chiming in to share their perspective. This can be a great resource that helps you make purchasing decisions confidently and quickly.
Now that we’ve talked about why you might want to manage a Wishlist, let’s discuss how to do it. First up, you should find and explore your Wishlist on Shutterlife. It’s conveniently located in the MyShutterlife section of the site, via the drop-down navigation at the top of every page. Once you’re on the Wishlist page, just click the “Add Items” button near the top-right of the screen to get started. You’ll see a few options expand.
Adding items through the search bar is super easy, but you can also manually find and add items in the Catalog (a huge database of camera equipment). Once you have an item added to your Camera Bag, there are some really cool things you can do with it. The first thing you’ll notice is the “Receive In-Stock Notifications” checkbox. Mark that if you’d like to receive an email about that item’s availability (as described earlier).
You can click into the item to see it in greater detail. This is where you’ll find Questions & Tips. You can also browse photos taken with the item, or browse the profiles of photographers using the item. The detail page is a great way to learn more and see what a given piece of equipment can do in the hands of both skilled and beginner photographers. The item detail page can also help facilitate the purchase of the item from KEH.com by showing you available conditions and accessories.
A Shutterlife Wishlist is not only helpful for you, but can also be shared with friends or family to show them what you’d like to receive as a gift in the near future. They’ll be able to see the same informational resources, helping them make a smart and secure purchase.
Now that you know all about your Wishlist, if you have any questions or improvements you’d like to see, you can always share them with [email protected].
