Change supplier of a product

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.

Replacing with a new supplier

Go to DSers – My Products.

Replace product

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.
