Create Your List

You can create a List and add items to your list to keep track of the items you're eyeing.

To create a List:
  1. Hover over Account & List at the top of any page and select Create a list from the drop-down.

    Note: If you're creating multiple Lists, go to an existing List and click Create a List after going to Your Lists.

  2. Click Create a list.
  3. Select Manage List from the list menu (...) at the top of your list to update your default shipping address, birthday, personal description and preferences.


    • Gift givers will only see the name, city, and state of the shipping address.
    • Amazon will only use your birthday for birthday reminders chosen by the customer and to generate information on the site.
    • You can designate whether your list is for an organization and if so you'll have the option to provide the URL of the organization’s website.
    • You can update this information again anytime.

  4. Click Save and browse for an item.
  5. Click Add to List under the Buy box on the right-hand side of any item's product detail page.


    • Only list owners can make changes through Manage List. Both list owners and collaborators will be able to add and remove items.
    • You can add items for sale by to your list, except out-of-print books, out-of-stock products, cell phones with service plans, items that don't have release dates, and items with quantity restrictions.
    • You can add items available from sellers to your list. Potential purchasers will see See Buying Options instead of Add to Cart next to the item, since the same copy of the item may not be available later.


  • You can repeat this process to create multiple lists; there's no limit. Your default list is the one that items are added to when you click Add to list. For more information on moving items between lists, go to Edit Items in Your List.
