What is the way to programmatically add the product into wishlist in Magento2?

To do so, you will first have to inject the following in your constructor:

  • Magento\Wishlist\Model\WishlistFactory
  • Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface

So update your class constructor like this:

protected $_wishlistRepository;

protected $_productRepository;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Wishlist\Model\WishlistFactory $wishlistRepository,
    \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface $productRepository
) {
    $this->_wishlistRepository= $wishlistRepository;
    $this->_productRepository = $productRepository;

Then in you can do the following, please note your need both the customer id and the product id to add a product to the wishlist:

try {
    $product = $this->_productRepository->getById($productId);
} catch (NoSuchEntityException $e) {
    $product = null;

$wishlist = $this->_wishlistRepository->create()->loadByCustomerId($customerId, true);

  • @Manish oops I reckon it should be WishlistFactory see my update May 24, 2016 at 8:29
  • Hello @Raphael, by using above code I am able to add wishlist item successfully, but there is a problem in table 'wishlist_item_option' value column is null. There is no any entry for that.
