Connect multiple suppliers to one product

It’s possible that your default supplier doesn't sell some variants you really want or you find a new supplier selling one of the variants for a cheaper price.

In situations like these, you can use DSers to map different suppliers for a single product to better personalize your offer.

Here’s the guide on how to do it.

Multiple supplier mapping

Go to DSers – My Products and access the Mapping Page on the product card.

Connect multiple suppliers to one product - My Products Mapping Page - Shopify DSers

You need to input the URL from a new AliExpress supplier you want to add here.

Go to AliExpress and copy the URL of a new supplier you want to add.

Paste the URL of the product you want to add to the Import box, then click on IMPORT.

Connect multiple suppliers to one product - Paste the URL - Shopify DSers

The new AliExpress product will appear under your current one.

Then, click on Set.

The new product will then appear in the Substitute Ali Product column without mapping.

Map the variants for which you want to use the Substitute supplier only.

Let’s take the following mapping as an example.

For the Standard Size, DSers will only order the product from the Default supplier when you select Standard for the Default Ali Product and leave the box of Substitute Ali Product empty.

For the Queen Size, DSers will only order the product from the Substitute supplier when you leave the box of Default Ali Product empty and select Queen for the Substitute Ali Product.

Here is another example.

In this case, for Queen Size, DSers will order the product from the Default supplier first. But when it runs out of stock, the Substitute Ali Product will be used.

For the Standard Size, DSers will only order the product from the Default supplier, just like for the King Size.

📕 NOTE: All the Attributes, such as Color / Size / Ship From, need to be mapped on both products!

Once you finished mapping the product the way you want, don’t forget to Save!

Connect multiple suppliers to one product - Click on SAVE - Shopify DSers

A notification will appear after you successfully saved.

This can really help you to better personalize your offer and provide more options for your customers to choose from.
