The AliExpress Dropshipping Ali2Woo plugin lets you import products from AliExpress and exports your orders to be fulfilled on AliExpress automatically.
When you create a shipping label, Ali2Woo does 2 things:
- First, they update the WooCommerce order notes API and add a note with the Shipping Carrier, Tracking Number, and link
- Second, they update the WooCommerce order API and change the order status to Completed (Shipped)
Since they do not use the Shipment Tracking API that AST is adding to the WooCommerce REST API, the tracking info is not added to the Shipment Tracking Order Meta and the shipping confirmation email will not include the shipment tracking widget.
To avoid that, you can disable the shipped status option, and manually copy &paste the tracking info from the order notes to the shipment tracking panel and fulfill your orders. When you have a few orders daily, this is easy but what if you get many orders daily? Our Ali2Woo Tracking integration will help you to avoid repetitive work and to automate the order fulfillment workflow.
Ali2Woo Tracking Integration
Our tracking integration automatically gets the tracking information from the order notes, automates the fulfillment workflow, and helps you save time on repetitive work to copy & paste tracking numbers from the order notes to the Shipment Tracking panel.
to enable the Ali2Woo Tracking integration with AST PRO, in your store’s admin, go to:
WooCommerce > Shipment Tracking > Integrations
Search for the Ali2Woo integration and enable it. When you check to autoComplete shipped orders option, AST will change the order status to Shipped, if you decide to disable that, you will need to manually change the order status to Shipped.
Once you’ll enable the integration, whenever you’ll generate a shipping label in your Ali2Woo account for an order that was received from your WooCommerce store, the shipment tracking info will automatically be updated from the order notes into AST’s shipment tracking order meta.
Please note: Ali2Woo might use Shipping Carrier names that are different than the name on AST’s shipping providers list. In these cases, the shipping confirmation email will not include the tracking link. To solve that, you can map the names received from Ali2Woo to the names on AST’s shipping providers list using the Map Shipping Providers Option.
