You can connect different AliExpress products and map their variants into one Shopify product. This means that you can have a Shopify product that has variants from multiple AliExpress products.

For example, you find a shirt to sell from a supplier that's available in S, M, and L sizes. A different supplier offers the same shirt in XL size. You can map these product variants into one Shopify product that has the shirt in S, M, L, and XL sizes.

If you're on the Explorer plan, then you can connect up to 2 products. If you want to connect up to 5 products with the Boss plan, then you can change your Oberlo plan.

Connect a product and map its variants

To create a single product with variants from different AliExpress products, you need to connect and map variants to an existing Shopify product.

Before you start, review the following considerations:

Steps:

  1. From your Oberlo admin, click Products.

  2. Click the product that you want to add variants.

  3. In the AliExpress Products section, click MANAGE VARIANTS.

  4. In the AliExpress Products section, paste the URL of the product that you want to connect to your existing Shopify product. The product will be automatically added to the list after you paste the URL.

  5. Click ADD VARIANT.

  6. Name each variant option.

  7. Click CREATE VARIANTS.

  8. In the AliExpress Product column, choose the product that you want.

  9. In the AliExpress variant (cost) column, choose the variant that you want from the product you selected.

  10. After you add and connect the variants that you want, click SAVE.


Disconnect a product

If you want to disconnect an AliExpress product from your Shopify product, then you need to delete or change the AliExpress product that your variants are connected to.

Steps:

  1. From your Oberlo admin, go to Products.

  2. Click the product that you want to disconnect variants from.

  3. Optional: If you want to delete the variant that connects to the product you want to disconnect, then click Edit on Shopify and delete the variants in Shopify admin. The variants you deleted in Shopify admin will also be removed from the Manage Variants page of that product in Oberlo.

  4. In the AliExpress Products section, click MANAGE VARIANTS.

  5. To switch the product that a variant is connected to, change the selected options in the AliExpress product and AliExpress variant (cost) columns of that variant.

  6. Click SAVE.

  7. In the AliExpress Products section, click the X next to the product that you want to disconnect. The product will be deleted if it's not connected to any variant.
