It’s possible that you will find a new supplier that offers cheaper prices or that your current supplier is out of stock. In these situations, you may want to replace your current AliExpress supplier with a new one.
Here is the guide on how to do it.
Go to DSers – My Products.
Access the Mapping Page on the product card.
If you already have a supplier for the product, you need to import the new supplier you want to use as the default one.
Go to AliExpress and copy the URL of the new supplier you want to use.
Paste the URL to the Import box and click on Import.
The AliExpress product will appear below the box, then click on the gray tool.
A small window will pop up. Select Default option and click OK to make this new supplier as your new supplier by default.
You then need to select the variants of the new supplier corresponding to your product’s variants.
Once you finished to map the product, don’t forget to SAVE!
A notification will appear after you successfully saved.
If you already have 2 suppliers and want to replace the default supplier with the substitute supplier, you can follow these steps.
Click the exchange icon below
The position of two suppliers were exchanged.
Or you can simply delete the original default supplier by clicking the X on the top right of the default supplier column.
Confirm you want to delete the current default supplier by clicking Yes.
The previous substitute supplier will then become the default supplier automatically.
Don’t forget to SAVE when you are done!
It’s possible you want to change all the variants of a product when the AliExpress product has more options and you don’t want to do the mapping again, or if you have found a better or a cheaper supplier and still want to use the same URL.
DSers can help you to quickly solve the problem. We have developed a new feature that is Replace Product. You can simply change all the variants in one click and still use the original product URL in Shopify. It will save you a lot of time and energy.
To use this feature, access the mapping page, and click REPLACE PRODUCT in the Supplier Mapping page.
Paste the URL of your new product in the box.
Then click REPLACE PRODUCT.
You can change the product title and image that appear in Shopify in the Product tab.
In the Variants tab, in case you don’t want to use all the variants of the product, you can select the ones you want to appear on Shopify.
You can choose to keep the original product description or update it with the new product details in the Description tab.
In the Images tab, you can choose to keep the original product images or choose to use new product images.
After checking the product information, click REPLACE PRODUCT.
After that, in My Products, the product card will still be there, but the information related to the supplier will be changed accordingly.
Now you know how to change the supplier of a product with DSers!
