As Airbnb Inc. prepares for its long-awaited Nasdaq debut, other consumer-facing technology companies are joining the going-public party, which had been dominated so far this year by enterprise software listings.

Food-delivery service DoorDash Inc., online discount retailer Wish Inc. and installment loans provider Affirm Inc. could join Airbnb in making their financials public in the next few weeks, according to people familiar with their plans. All would seek to hold their initial public offerings before the end of 2020, the people said.
