Set Automatic updates for Ali Dropship Connector

Ali Dropship Connector allows you to set rules for the app to automatically set the price of the products when you export them from AliExpress to your ShopBase store. In this article, we will guide you on how to set automatic updates for Ali Dropship Connector.

Step by Step Tutorial

From ShopBase admin site, go to Apps > Ali Dropship Connector > Settings.

Adjust your settings in Automatic updates category with 4 principles:

Automatically update product whenever the AliExpress product is no longer available: Select this if you want Ali Dropship Connector to automatically update the product whenever the corresponding product on AliExpress is deleted by one of two options: Unpublish product (the system will hide the product from the store, it won't be visible to your customers anymore; if you want to republish the product, you'll need to go to the store admin page to do this manually) or Set quantity of product to Zero (the system will change the stock number to 0 and mark your product as "Out of stock". Your customers can see the product but cannot order).

Automatically update variant whenever the AliExpress variant is no longer available: By selecting this, Ali Dropship Connector will reduce the number of a variant to 0 when it is no longer available or out of stock on AliExpress.

Automatically update costs of products from AliExpress: By selecting this, price of products will be updated according to its initial price on AliExpress.

Automatically allow placing orders whenever the AliExpress product cost changes: By default, when the seller orders a price-changed product on AliExpress, that order will fail. Yet, if this option is selected, when the difference is equal to the setting (10% and less), 15% or less or 20% or less, orders are still placed regardless of the slight change in price. If this option is not selected, when there is a change in price, the order will be erroneous and need to be reviewed and re-ordered.
