not that i know anything about E-commerce, but surely the only reason a site would use a wishlist is so it knows how in demand their products are and will reduce them accordingly.
if the have 10 pairs of shoes left and 20 people have them on their wishlist, i would imagine you would see a small reduction, if any.
Basically, and to aid with future products/buying. It's also the easiest way to directly let a customer know if you're short on stock/it has been discounted and push them to purchase.

Usually gets tasty when the 80% kicks in.

Nobody at Mr. Porter is individually going through each item and reducing their price - all they'll do is get their programmers to write some algorithm that automatically reduces price over brands / categories at a specific percentage and date / time.

They'll know at what percentage they're still making a profit - i.e. a reduction of 30% might still yield a 10% gross profit / margin.

I'd imagine all that wishlist stuff is just for customer retention and marketing.

Someone will be going through each line individually, it's part of the merchandiser's job.

Strange but if u change your location to Belgium the sale is already at 60-70% Puzzled it only costs an extra £5 to deliver here as well. Shouts to diederik for the tip Cool

So are porter likely to add any new lines to the sale in the coming weeks, or just further reduce stuff already in the sale?

Usually does but MH sale is often quite late and the reductions don't ever seem to go lower than around 40-50% off.
