Sooner or later you can face a situation when some products become unavailable. You always can find the same product at another store and use option ‘Change product’.  In this case you keep your featured image and product description, but product URL will be replaced with another one from a different supplier.  To get to know more about ‘Change supplier’ option go HERE

If you want to update a particular product use ‘Manual update’.

There are several options you can use:

  • When a product disappears from AliExpress or is out of stock.

You can send such products to draft and decide what you are going to do with them later or do nothing.

If product is sent to draft it will not be republished again even if it becomes available, because it has a different Product ID and it couldn’t be identified with a previous one.

  • When a product’s price changed / When a product’s stock changed.

There are 2 options if price or stock are changed: Do nothing or Update automatically. 

E.g. If you set your price and you don’t want it to be updated use ‘Do nothing’ option.
