You can populate your webstore with your own products, even if they are not on sale on AliExpress. Please bear in mind that these items will not be synchronized with AliExpress API and will not be updated (stock, prices, etc.) automatically.
To add a new product manually, go to your WordPress Dashboard → Products → Add new:
Enter a product Title and Description. Permalink will be generated automatically according to your product’s Title. Select a product’s category:
Scroll down to the Product Options section → General:
Fill in all fields with the information: select the currency of the product (default currency of your store), set product’s regular and sale prices, set a total number of items in stock, etc. You can put some important details in the Notes field, this is hidden from the public view area.
Product Options → Attributes:
Add attributes to your product. In the example, there is only one attribute – Color.
Add images and name of attributes’ items, click Save Changes:
Product options → Variations:
Click +Add All, and the plugin generates all possible variations automatically. As we have only one attribute ‘Color’ in the example, we will have the same product variations as the attribute.
If your product is simple and doesn’t have any attributes and variations, just leave these sections empty.
Product options → Shipping:
This section is connected with global Shipping settings.
In the example, we have shipping enabled per each item in the cart, so we're able to select shipping options for each product individually.
Product options → Item Specifics, Packaging:
You can add some of them as AliExpress suppliers do, but also you can leave these sections empty.
The Supplier, Update, and Reviews section could remain untouched as long as your product is not connected to AliExpress.
Product options → Gallery:
Add images to your gallery.
Product options → Cross-Selling: READ HERE.
Product options → SEO:
Add Title, Description, and Keywords for your product.
Finally, set a featured image and Publish your product!
