How to edit products on DropShipMan

If you have imported the product, the next step maybe edit the product. (About importing products, check here for more details )


Filter Product Status

Before editing the product, there are two filters worthy of your attention: The tabs on top is whether the product is pushed to shopify, "Deleted" means that the product was deleted in shopify. And the "Aliexpress Product Status" is the status of the products on AliExpress. We are one of the partners of AliExpress, and we synchronize product information by accessing the API of AliExpress. Generally, AliExpress products may have one of two states in the api. As can be see: On selling or No Available. 

No available means that AliExpress is not selling this product. We provide the action to unpublished or delete the corresponding shopify product in the Settings > Notification.



Edit Product

The title, collections, tags, type of the product can be edit in DropShipMan. This information will be stored in our database in real time.  

  • Title - A textfield with maximum length 255 characters.
  • Collections - A selector with options of your existing manual collections, If you want a new collection for this product, In your shopify store > Products > Collections, create collections with type manual. (check here for more details)
  • Tags - An input box including your saved tags. Like shopify, a product can have multiple tags.
  • Type - Same as tags, but only one for a product.
  • Description -  We provide a rich text editor. The data is the category information and details of this product in AliExpress. There will be better editing with shopify's rich text editor. The product description picture of AliExpress is all in media.


Edit Product Variants

In the variant editor, same as shopify, an options filter in order to quickly filter variants. 

The bulk action was put under the table header. When bulk edit, only the selected items will be change.
