Wish platform was created by ContextLogic Inc. in 2010 in San Francisco, CA. It is an online e-commerce platform that makes shopping easier for shoppers and allows sellers to list their items quickly and profitably. More than 1M sellers are registered on Wish and more than 80M buyers use the platform every month.
The platform is quite unique: it directly connects buyers and sellers. Wish is a mediator, which is processing payments instead of selling items from its warehouses and handling returns. As a result, everyone wins: both the seller who can sell a product with no extra costs and the buyer who can buy the product cheaper.
The platform's functionality and design are also unusual: buyers receive personalized offers with an emphasis on the visual component.
