Item Purchase Code – you get the license code once you have purchased the plugin on CodeCanyon.
You can find it in your CodeCanyon account. Just go to your “Downloads” page, locate Ali2Woo plugin you purchased in your “Downloads” list and click on the “License Certificate” link next to the download link. After you have downloaded the certificate you can open it in a text editor such as Notepad and copy the Item Purchase Code.
Please be informed that one license code can be used on one domain name only. In case you decide to change a domain name, your Ali2Woo plugin license code should be reset. Please forward your request to Ali2Woo support team and your license will be reset shortly, so that you can activate it on your new domain.
– there are 17 languages that are supported on AliExpress completely, choose required language before importing and then products (titles, descriptions and attributes), reviews and shipping methods will be imported in the chosen language.
To translate the plugin interface, please forward your request to Ali2Woo support team. We will give access to a special module where you can translate everything into the desired language.
Currency – Ali2Woo imports all product prices in USD by default and it is possible to choose a different currency for product import. There are 14 currencies that are supported on AliExpress completely, choose a required currency before importing.
Also, the Ali2Woo plugin allows adding custom currencies which you see on AliExpress. By default, the Ali2Woo currency setting contains the main currencies only.
Notice: the custom currencies don’t work in the Ali2Woo build-in search module, it will keep showing USD currency in prices.
But it’s working fine when you import the product into your store, the currency will be converted to the custom one.
So how to activate the custom currency?
To do that just put such a line in your wp-config.php
if you want to add several currencies, you need to use “;” symbol between currencies codes likes:
After that new currency will appear in the Ali2Woo settings and you need to choose the one you want, then just save the changes.
Also, if you need some unsupported currency (on AliExpress), you need to convert the prices of your products to the currency by changing the price multiplier on the Pricing rules page. It relatively easy since you just multiply your existing Price Multiplier by the ratio between USD and your currency.
– Ali2Woo supports two modes for the option. Default one is “Simple/Variable Product” and if the mode is chosen, Ali2Woo will import products into WooCommerce as Simple or Variable product depending on AliExpress product type. Another mode is “External/Affiliate Product”, in that case Ali2Woo will import products as External products. The external products can’t be added into the cart, they have “buy button” that forward your customers to AliExpress product page directly.
Default product status – once you push products to your shop from the Import list, products will automatically become visible to your visitors or keep in the Draft folder and can be published later.
– if you want to save free space on your server, you can activate the option and images will use external paths and loaded right from AliExpress cloud servers. If you have not this option enabled, then Ali2Woo plugin loads the images to your server.
Please note, if you have the option disabled, the variations attributes will be imported as “Custom attributes” except case when some attribute has been already added as “Global attribute” in WooCommerce.
If you want to learn more about the attributes and their types, please check this article.
Aliexpress Sync – if you want the product prices, stock and variations to be synced automatically with AliExpress, you need activate the option.
– if a product is no longer available on AliExpress, you can keep it in stock (i.e. do nothing), move it to trash folder or set its quantity to zero (i.e. mark it as the out-of-stock product)
Synchronization type – the option allows you to choose what exactly do you need to sync (prices, stock level and etc.)
