Connect a product and map its variants

You can map different AliExpress product variants into one Shopify product. 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.

You can have a maximum of 100 variants for your Shopify product. If a product doesn't have any variants or if it’s a blocked product, then it isn't available for variant mapping.

Steps:

  1. From your Oberlo admin, go to 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 field, paste the URL of the product that you want to connect with your existing Shopify product.

  5. If you want to create a new variant for your Shopify product, then complete the following steps:

    1. Click ADD VARIANT.

    2. Name each variant option.

    3. Click CREATE VARIANTS.

    4. In the AliExpress Product drop-down menu, choose the product that you want.

    5. In the AliExpress variant (cost) drop-down menu, choose the variant that you want.

  6. After you add the variants that you want, click SAVE.

When you add a new product variant or change the supplier for an existing product variant, then Oberlo sets its price according to your Pricing rules settings. You can adjust the product variant price manually in your Shopify admin.

If you make changes to product variants that are present in your orders, then these product variants are also updated in your orders that are in the To order status.


Disconnect a product

If you want to disconnect an AliExpress product from your Shopify product, then you need to remove all of its variants from your Shopify product.

Steps:

  1. From your Oberlo admin, go to Products.

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

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

  4. In the AliExpress product and AliExpress variant (cost) columns change the product and its variants that you want to remove to another product and product variants.

  5. In the AliExpress Products section, click the x next to the product that you want to disconnect.
