  1. Foreign trade rookie

    After the customer has paid, AliDropship will automatically place the order for you on Selling.com. How is the money paid for the purchase on Selling.com?

    1. This time is too long to remember, you can go to the official website to see help or ask their customer service, should be able to choose to manually go to determine the order or automatically place an order.

      1. That's very true, I have purchased through your coupon code, but after installation this plugin is missing some functions, Setting is missing pricing, payments, shipping and some other functions, I can't upload pictures here for you to see, is there something wrong with my settings somewhere.

        1. Which version you use, woo plug-in version or their own version of that version, different versions of the setup method is different, you product editing interface to see if it is not filled out, or you crawl when the crawl failed.

          1. Later it happened that the system reminded the plug-in to upgrade to solve the problem, now it is appearing on the web page to show the price is us$0.00, but click on the purchase price is displayed, which is where to set it?
            The version is Version 1.8.23.7

          2. This kind of problem you'd better contact their customer service directly to help you troubleshoot, after all, bought with after-sales service.
