The Wishlist works great and is highly customizable – even complex variable products are no problem for this plugin. The SKUs, the attributes, everything gets displayed correct on the Wishlist page. Whats even better about this plugin is its world-class Support. The Support was very quick and even added new functions to the plugin for me.
