How it works?

The most of Aliexpress products have variations such as: colour, size and etc. You have to know that the final product price depends on selected variation and each variation has own remaining stock amount.

Since Aliexpress doesn`t have API function to get variation data, we made this add-on that parses product variations right from the page using google special Chrome extension "WooImporter"

So to load Aliexpress variations please follow the instructions below.

  1. Please install and activate Chrome Extention
  2. Make sure you have ticked the option "Use Chrome extention"
  3. aliexpress variations WooImporter
  4. After that you need to open your Aliexpress search sections in the plugin with activated Chrome browser extention and you will see smth like aliexpress variations WooImporter
  5. Just make a search and import products as usual and variations should be imported. Chrome extention will get variations after importing and notify you about it by word "get" aliexpress variations WooImporter

How to load variations for already imported products?

Normally variations are loaded while the posting of products when this add-on and chrome extension are activated. But if you have used WooImporter plugin ealier, then we believe you have already some products imported. In this case your product data can be updated through Woocommerce Products page, just fire the update action for selected products.
