SpreeCommerce Favorite Products

Marking a product as favorite is creating a collection of products you like and might want to buy in the future. Obviously, it’s super convenient as you don’t have to search from thousands of products each time you want to have a look at or buy something from your own personal favorites.

  1. Ability for the customer to ‘Mark a product as favorite’ on the product detail page.
