    I added some more items after your reply and i still have it.. The Da Vinci update (to 0.5.2) did not resolve this unfortunately. However if i delete just some items it can be well configured, but i know this is not a normal 'solution'.
    Still looking into this on how to fix this but i have a lot of issues connecting and/or logging into Ali atm.

    17track.com is more accurate than aftership (this latter gave me a funny result; I tried Singapore tracking number, it gave me the word Russian Post with no information)

    My favourite is this site: trackitonline.ru

    it automatically detects almost everything, and on top of that, sometimes, it gives some more details that the other websites aren't able to do it.

    Yaros.

    There seems to be a workflow problem with the checkout page. It's not capturing the details of the client if payment is not processed. The import review and pricing module are also broken after update. I can't select the dropdown lists. I sent emails to support.

    after you install & activate the plugin , you should go to "settings" then "code embed" , you'll see the default settings , click save changes . Also make sure you type the exact identifier between % , the default one is %CODE1% for CODE1 , You can change it from settings btw .

    Yes i know Aftership , but i choose 17track because it's easy to integrate without dealing with API ..etc & it's free ! also it's more accurate with asian couriers than aftership & it give more informations about shippments .

    Hello just want to share this as I saw another member mention this: "Importing reviews takes hours".
    I have noticed importing reviews be extremely sluggish within firefox. As soon as I changed to Google Chrome, the reviews loaded right up!

    This update will deal with the plugin only, where you can't make any changes and these plugin updates will not affect the changes you have done.

    Do you really want 80% of your emails go to spam folder? I will never use hosting or WP functionality for notification purposes. All the mailing services I integrated are also free with some limitation for the number of emails, but this number is more than enough.

    Absolutely right! One of the requirement for using the plugin is google Chrome extension that is responsible for importing reviews option.

    It is already optimised. Much depends on your hosting and the number of products you have on your store. The Plugin gives a possibility to store images on AliExpress instead of uploading to your server.

    Open the plugin, go to 'Settings' and 'General' will open up. Under 'Product Images' you have the option to upload images to your server. Save changes, refresh page then click apply to all products.
    I must add, if you do this and have about 100 products in your store, the images you then have on your own server will slow things down a lot. Also you will need min. 1GB webhosting if you do this.

    Next thing that comes up is bandwith. If you have 100 products and lets say this is 1GB of images, you will need to have a lot of bandwith per month for your site not going to be suspended.
    The average size will be 10mb per page. If you have 100 visitors a month, all opening 5 pages total per person makes 500 pages looked at per month you will need 500GB bandwith per month.
    So in my opinion, if you do not have the money or a server i'd recommend you to not have them on your hosting where your website also is.

    I just accessed the ssl settings on my hosting cpanel and I saw a warning saying that I don't have a dedicated ip, which means that browsers that don't support SNI
    will probably give false security warnings to my visitors.

    I have 150 products on my store and I'm about to add more. Until now I set the plugin to upload images on my server. Is there a way to revert this setting for the products that were already added?

    I'm afraid not, correct me if i'm wrong. I also tried to revert it but i saw the products i added kept being saved on server while it was not checked.

    With the update from AliDropShip plugin i decided to delete all products, images, files and even sweeping/deleting some db files (be carefull if you do so). You can delete images via media in Wordpress or via DirectAdmin or FTP.
    After re-adding products and making sure it was unchecked for the files to save, i got very happy. I now do not have any product images on my server and the website is very fast.

    Now i will have to think about using a CDN where you can choose to upload only files and NOT images, because they are allready on Ali's CDN.

    i use some social auto posting tools and they're not working with the plugin because the images aren't stored in the server, so i understand that the overload on the server is bad etc, but if we have an option to just save the featured image on our server wouldn't be bad. correcte me if i'm wrong

    -1-

    If a customer buy 2 or 3 products on our website which are all from different supplier.
    It will come in two or three separate timing and packaging.
    How do we do wouldn't the customer be confused?
    Sure, we can say our products are shipped directly from our manufacturers.
    But How do we maintain that statement to long term customers?

    -2-

    I'd like to know you choose one website per one supplier?

    -3-

    I'd like to know you Withdraw money to your bank account after got money from buyer or Withdraw to bank account after buyer got items already?

    Hi,
    Any plan to enable local bank transfer as part of the payment gateway?
    Not necessary specific to local bank transfer, but something like custom payment gateway where admin can type any message in the payment box, and clicking place order will immediately placing order (basically just like normal bank transfer :) )
