Ordering and Auto Fulfillment

Here you can enter your own number, or 00000000000. Then choose to always override the customers number, or to use it if it's available. You might choose to override if you don't want any chance of the seller contacting your customers.
Custom Note to Supplier - enter a message to pass to the seller with every order, such as "* We are dropshipping, please do not include any notes, invoices or promotions. Thank you. * "

Save Supplier Order ID as Order Tag - Save's the Order ID as a tag on the order, searchable from within your Shopify admin and not visible to the customer (Recommended for Shopify)

Auto Hide Successfully Completed Orders - Orders will be removed from the queue once they are placed.
Auto Close Completed Tabs - Once an order is placed the tab will be closed.
Don't wait for Combined Orders Confirmation - We will automatically click Confirm & Pay on AliExpress to fully automate the process.
Set Only The First Item Shipping For Same Vendor Items - If you have 3 items from the same vendor we will just change the shipping method for the first, this allows you to save on shipping costs if the supplier has approved this.
Remember Orders Queue Position - This will remember the position of the window (default will be bottom right of the screen).
If error or timeout occurs, move to next order after: __ minutes - if an error happens during auto ordering we'll move on to the next order after X minutes.
