Please ensure you are logged in to AliExpress, eBay or Alibaba and the orders in your store are ‘Unfulfilled’.

Here is how the process works at a high level. We'll use Aliexpress in this case. Note that this process also applies to eBay and Alibaba:

  • The Chrome Extension will auto-sync the tracking information to the app as long as you are logged in to AliExpress. So if you are logged out overnight and then come back to start work in the morning, we won't sync the tracking numbers to Dropified until you log back into your AliExpress account.

  • After you log in to AliExpress, we'll add that info to Dropified. Then, about every 10 minutes or so, we will run a command that should auto fulfill the order for you and trigger the default Shipping Confirmation notification email from your Shopify account to get sent to your customer.

  • If you give it a little more time from when it was last updated, then the auto fulfill should kick in for those recent orders.

  • You can see when the orders were "Last Updated" by visiting the Tracking page and looking at the "Updated" column.

  • If you want to bring the tracking numbers into Dropified without waiting for them to auto-sync there is a "Sync with Supplier" button on the Tracking page to manually sync the orders.

Still experiencing issues? If so, this may help:

Keep in mind that It's important not to manually click fulfilled in your eCommerce store. Otherwise, it will not update your tracking number for orders. If that was done, you will need to visit your orders page in Shopify and Unfulfill the item.

After that, you can sync for an update with the guide below.

When you enable your Auto Fulfill settings the system will automate the status updates.

Here is what those settings should look like.

After that's complete, you can repeat the suggested steps above (Manually syncing while logged into Aliexpress in another tab on the Tracking page)

Apart from this, users can typically expect suppliers to post tracking numbers in 2-3 days after successfully placing an order.
