The idea of what this plugin can do it's great but in action many features are not working. Suddenly, I bought the enterprise version because I want to build more than one installation. The Cons: Slow support responses Price Formulas in multiselection it's not working Video Import its not working Variations import has many conflicts with curious behavior Open AliExpress button in product page its not working Sync Orders to AliExpress (Tue function that places the products on AE) Update Price on daily basis not working, BUT, stock qty updated as well The process to choose categories in import are complex and hard to locate your categories if you have many of them If you choose split variations, then, adds in the main name of product thesuffix *|| AliExpress - Black* and you have to remove one by one Make's some JS conflicts with woocommerce admin (in my case) This plugin has great plan but it needs fixes and a major update. If most of them fixed then GLWS because can make many many sales with satisfied customers. Till then, look for other plugins and compare the reviews. I'm saying goodbye to this plugin with sad feelings atm.

The dashboard looks a bit plain and unprofessional. "Insert by Url" does absolutely nothing so your only options is to use "Search by keyword". Once you do find the product you want to import, variants and prices are wrong. It even gives you variant names that dont even exist in aliexpress listing.

Every time my site refreshes the product pricing, the prices randomly get screwed up defaulting to $1.12 for single price items and $1.12 as the lower of price range products. This is for products that should be $hundred's. I cant find a way to stop it happening. Anyone got a suggestion?
