Wallet estimation considers the prediction of customers spending in the retail industry. Previous work showed that customer wallets may be modelled by high quantile regression. In this work, we generalize the wallet estimation scheme and consider a multi-wallet problem, where multiple wallets are estimated simultaneously. We argue that a naive approach, which considers every wallet separately, can be improved since customers spending on different items are typically correlated. We introduce a multi-target learning (MTL) framework, based on deep-neural networks, and apply it to large scale e-commerce vendors. We show that the MTL based method significantly improves the prediction accuracy, compared to currently known schemes.
