You can also place and pay for your orders individually with the Oberlo Chrome extension (OCE) on AliExpress. When you place orders individually with OCE, you’re redirected to AliExpress where the OCE adds products to your shopping cart, fills in shipping information and order details automatically. You then need to review your order and pay for it on AliExpress.

Before you start placing orders, review the following requirements:
You need to have a desktop or laptop computer. You can't place orders on mobile or tablet devices.
You need to use the Google Chrome browser.
You have the Oberlo Chrome extension installed on your browser.
You need to be signed in to your AliExpress account on AliExpress. Don't place orders as a guest as you won't be able to track their progress later.
You need to empty your AliExpress shopping cart.
If your order doesn't show up in Oberlo, then you need to fix your missing order.
Place and pay for AliExpress orders individually
You can place and pay for AliExpress orders individually on AliExpress with the OCE. If your Shopify order contains products from multiple AliExpress suppliers, then you need to repeat these steps and place separate AliExpress orders with each supplier.
From your Oberlo admin, click Orders.
Click ACTIONS next to the order that you want to place, and then click Order via Oberlo Chrome extension. Then you're directed to the AliExpress checkout page. The Oberlo Chrome extension automatically adds the product to your shopping cart, fills in the customer shipping information, and selects your preferred shipping method.
Select your preferred payment method, add your payment details, and then click Continue.
Optional: If you ship to the United States, Canada, or the United Kingdom, then you might see an option to fill in the billing address. Make sure to uncheck the Same as shipping address checkbox and then fill in your own billing address.
Review your order’s information and then click Place Order to place and pay for your order.
After you place and pay for your order on AliExpress the Oberlo Chrome extension syncs your AliExpress order's ID back to Oberlo and changes your order's status to Awaiting shipment. You need to wait until the supplier fulfills your order on AliExpress, and then sync your AliExpress order.
If you want to place and pay for AliExpress orders in bulk, then refer to Place and sync AliExpress orders.
