Sezam plugin provides you with the possibility to keep your product details up-to-date.

Go to Sezam => Settings => Updates to adjust your update settings.

You can update products of the particular category (or categories) :

or update all products by choosing All Categories:

If a product is no longer available on Alibaba, you may:

  • Do nothing. The item will remain unchanged in your store;

  • Set its quantity to zero. In case your product is out of stock, but some time later it becomes available again, the plugin will update its quantity automatically;

  • Send it to draft/restore. The product will be unpublished from your store and will be sent to draft. Once this product appears on Alibaba again, the plugin will restore and publish it automatically.

If a product variation is no longer available on Alibaba, you may:

  • Do nothing. The variation will remain unchanged in your store.

  • Set its quantity to zero. If your product variation is out of stock, but some time later it becomes available again, the plugin will update its quantity automatically;

  • Disable/Enable. The variation that is no longer available on Alibaba will be disabled. The variation will be activated again once it appears on Alibaba.

In case the product price or stock has changed, they can be either updated automatically or left as they are.

On the right-hand side of the page, there is the Product List bar available: you will be able to check product update progress. Click Update Now to start updating.

You can also activate the auto-update. Go to Sezam -> Settings -> Updates.

Set auto update’s interval: once daily, once weekly, or once monthly.
