This FAQ article will explain shipping on Wish, including the shipping policy, the shipping settings you can choose from, and how to set or change your shipping preferences.
As a merchant on Wish, you can choose one of three different shipping options: Ship to US Only and Ship to Selected Countries/Regions.
Fast and reliable shipping is critical to customer satisfaction. We ask that you fulfill orders within 5 days, ship items using a trusted package delivery company, and provide a valid tracking number for the shipment. Orders that are not shipped within 5 calendar days of purchase will be refunded automatically.

Updating Shipping Settings
To establish or change your shipping settings, navigate to Account > Shipping Settings on Merchant Dashboard. You can also update your shippings settings via API PUT /api/v3/merchant/shipping_settings.
Here, you can select Ship to US Only or Ship to Selected Countries/Regions. Be sure to click "Apply to existing non-promoted products" after you're finished to save your shipping settings.
1. If you choose Ship to US Only, items from your store can be purchased only by customers from the United States. The shipping cost you set for your products is the cost of shipping to customers in the US only.
2. If you choose Ship to Selected Countries/Regions, items from your store can be purchased by customers from the countries/regions that you select only. This allows you to choose the countries/regions your store can ship to. If you select “Add All Countries”, items from your store can be purchased by customers worldwide. The shipping cost you set is the cost of shipping to customers in any of the countries that Wish supports. Keep in mind that these countries include those in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa, and Australia.
Under Shipping Settings, you can also set the overall country/region level shipping price for all Standard products.
How to set Overall Country Shipping Price:
- Click on Account > Shipping Settings on Merchant Dashboard.
- Under Ship to US Only or Ship to Selected Countries/Regions, you will be able to edit the overall Standard shipping cost of a country/region for all non-promoted products.
- Next to the Country/Region you wish to edit, select Use Country/Region Shipping Price from the dropdown.
- Then enter the amount you wish to apply to all non-promoted products:
- Once complete, select Apply to existing non-promoted products.
Now all non-promoted, Standard shipping products will have their international shipping set for that country/region.
