How to track the variants created by WideBundle with DSERS?

Wide Hello to you! 😁

When using WideBundle, you noticed that your variants were replaced in order to create the new ones.

Therefore, if you use Dsers, you lose the link you had with the previous variants.

So let's see together how to make Dsers track your commands anyway!

if you prefer to have the explanation in a video you can watch it here 👇

1️⃣ Prerequisites

To use WideBundle with Dsers, you will need at least the Advanced version of Dsers.

This version is very convenient and will allow you to create variant mapping as well as bundles.

You can install Dsers or upgrade to the Advanced version by clicking here

2️⃣ Introduction

Since the offer system works with variants and not discounts, the quantity of an offer always remains at 1.

For example: ordering a product with the offer "2 bought = 1 free", when placing an order, you will not have a quantity of 3 for the product but you will have a quantity of 1 for the variant.

This is quite normal and it is also the only way to proceed with the tools that Shopify offers.

But then how do we get Dsers to recognize that there are 3 products?

By using product mapping and bundles!

3️⃣ Do the mapping

Go to Dsers and click on My Products.

Look for your Shopify product in the list, hover your mouse over the product and then click on the Variant mapping icon.

Click on Marketplaces.

By default, the mapping is set to "Basic Mapping" except we want to link a Shopify variant to multiple products on Dsers.

Disable basic mapping

Then click on Bundle.

Then, in front of each of your variants you will click on Import supplier & choose variant.

At this stage we will simply link the products to our variants so that Dsers knows which products to send

Now enter the link of your product on Aliexpress and click on the Search icon.

Now select the product variant you want to link.

You need to select the variant on Aliexpress that matches your variant on Shopify. For example I am adding the Aliexpress variants for my variant "1 tee shirt / Pink / S" so I will select the corresponding variant on Aliexpress

Then click on Submit.

Now you will need to add all the Aliexpress variants that are in your Shopify variant. For example for my variant "1 tee-shirt / Pink / S" I have selected the Aliexpress variant "1 tee-shirt / Pink / S" as shown in the image below

If your Shopify variant contains multiple products or Aliexpress variants, you will need to add everything.

- Increase the quantity if you have several times the same variant
- Use the Import supplier & choose variant button again if you have another Aliexpress variant

For example for my variant "3 tee shirt / S,S,L / White,White,Pink" it will be necessary to add 2 times the variant "tee shirt White S" and 1 time the variant "tee shirt Pink L

Now do the same thing for all your variants being careful to add all the aliexpress variants contained in your Shopify variants.

When it's done, activate the bundle by clicking on the button on the top right

That's it! When a customer orders one of your variants, Dsers will know which products to send for each variant!

SKUs remain empty on Shopify but this is normal!

See you soon! 😁
