Add an alternative supplier to a product - Basic mapping

Support: shopify icon woocommerce icon wix icon jumpseller icon

Basic Mapping allows you to add an alternative supplier to one product when necessary.

For example, when your default supplier is out of stock or put offline, you won’t be able to fulfill your orders. You can add a substitute supplier to the product to avoid that.

How to add one substitute supplier to a product

  1. Log in to DSers > dsers-my-products My Products.
  2. Select one supplier platform tab (such as AliExpress) in the Navigator Bar.
  3. Hover on the Product Card to click the button dsers-mapping-button to access the Supplier Management and select Marketplaces.
  4. Under the Basic tab, paste a new product URL🛈 in the Map Supplier search bar and click on dsers-ok-button. The new AliExpress product will appear in the Add Products column.
  5. Click dsers-wrench at the lower right side of the newly imported product image.
  6. In the Pop-up, select dsers-radio-button-unchecked Sub-supplier and click CONFIRM.
  7. In the Substitute Supplier column, click Select options and Select variants to map the supplier’s options and variants corresponding to your product’s options and variants.
  8. Click SAVE.

If you want to exchange your default supplier and sub-supplier for whatever reasons, just click the button dsers-exchange between the two suppliers’ columns and the position of the two suppliers will exchange.

Now the substitute product will be used in case the main product is unavailable.
