How do I check what's been purchased?
By default, all Wish Lists display "unpurchased" items. To check which items have been purchased from a Wish List, change the option in the "Reveal" drop-down menu at the top of the list to "Purchased". Then click "Go!".
Items sold by Amazon that are ordered directly from a Wish List page will automatically be shown as purchased on a Wish List. However, if the order is placed from a page other than the Wish List page the item may not be marked as purchased.
To avoid a duplicate gift order from being delivered to the gift recipient, you might want to check that items are selected for purchase directly from the Wish List or Wedding List page and that they are sold by Amazon.co.uk.Back to top
Where are Wish List purchases sent?
When you purchase from a Wish List, you can choose where you want the item to be delivered to. After you proceed to the checkout your address book will be displayed. If the person who created the Wish List associated a delivery address with the list, you'll be presented with the option to send the item to that address. You can choose any other address in your address book or add a new address.
Organisations provide us with the delivery addresses at which they would wish to receive items you have purchased and wish to donate to them. This address will be displayed to you on the relevant organisation's Wish List. This address may not be the registered or main office address of the organisation and therefore you should not change the recipient's address on the order form. Please contact the organisation concerned if you have any queries.
