How to Use the Variant Mapping Feature

Understanding the Variant Mapping Feature

ANTDIY has a “Variant Mapping” feature, which can be used in these cases:

  • Find alternative sources for products that have gone out of stock
  • Find alternative sources for products which are not imported by ANTDIY in the “other orders”
  • Connect a new source to your existing products
  • Merge different suppliers’ products into one Shopify product

For example, let’s suppose you find a shirt available in Small, Medium, and Large offered by one supplier, and that same shirt offered by a different supplier in Extra Large. With variant mapping, you can combine these into one product that offers the shirt in Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large.

Note: Variant Mapping feature is available on Basic and Pro subscription plans. Considering the impact of COVID-19, we have specially opened this function for you on free subscription plans. You can try it for free until the end of 2020.

Changing Currency

ANTDIY shows and imports all product costs in USD. If you want to sell your products in another currency, then you need to change the currency settings in Shopify and adjust the product prices as per the currency conversion rate.

Product prices are not converted automatically from one currency to another. You have to adjust the product prices manually or use the Global Pricing Rules feature in ANTDIY. If you use Shopify Payments, then you can sell in multiple currencies.

On this page:

  • Change currency in Shopify
  • Adjust product prices using the Global Pricing Rules
  • Adjust product prices manually
  • Sell in multiple currencies

Change currency in Shopify

To change the currency in your online store, follow these steps:

1. From the Shopify admin, go to Settings and then click General.

2. In the Store currency section, select the preferred currency.


Note: If you have launched your store and have already made sales, then you need to contact Shopify Support to change your store currency.

3. Click Save.

Once you make changes, then your product prices will be visible in the new currency. For example, if the product price is 10 USD and you change the store currency to EUR, the product price will be changed to 10 EUR. To keep your product prices correct, you should adjust them as per the currency conversion rate.

Adjust product prices using the Global Pricing Rules

If you manage your product prices using the Global Pricing Rules, then you need to adjust its multipliers (if you used the Fixed Markup before, then change it to the Multiplier) according to the currency conversion rates. To learn more about the Global Pricing Rules, refer to the How to Set the Global Pricing Rules article.


To do that follow these steps:

1. Check the conversion rate (USD to your selected currency) on Google or any other preferred currency conversion website.

To do that, follow these steps:

1. From the Shopify admin, go to Products.

2. Click on a product you want to adjust the price.

3. In the Price field, adjust the product price according to the new currency.

For example, if you change the currency from USD to EUR and the original product price was 10 USD, then you need to adjust its price to 9,2 EUR (depends on the currency conversion rates).

You can check the currency conversion rate (USD to your selected currency) on Google or any other preferred currency conversion website.

Import Products

ANTDIY helps you find great products to sell. Explore the AliExpress marketplace, add desired products to the Import List and then import them to your Shopify store. 

Customize Products

The imported products appear with the supplier’s information and images, however, we recommend editing these products to make them look more professional in your Shopify store. You can customize products in the Import List before you import them to your Shopify store.

Set Up Product Prices

Once you have added products to your store, you can now consider what markup you should add to the wholesale price. With ANTDIY “Global Pricing Rules” feature, you can price your products in bulk.

Order Products

After you receive an order, you will have to go to ANTDIY > Orders page and click on the orange “Order Products” button. After you confirm the payment, the supplier will ship the product within several days. ANTDIY will add the tracking code and will mark your order as “Fulfilled” in Shopify.

How to Change a Customer’s Shipping Address Before Placing the Order

If after receiving an order in your Shopify store the customer contacts you because they need to ship the item to a different address, follow the steps below.

Go to the Shopify admin > Orders page, find the order, and click on the “Edit” button next to the “Shipping Address” section.

Change the shipping address and click on the purple “Save” button. 

PS:Because the user address only supports English input on AliExpress, please update to English first and then place an order in ANTDIY, if the user address is not English in your Shopify store.

The new address will shortly be synced with ANTDIY. You can check this by clicking on the customer’s name next to the order. 

Once you see the new address, you can click on the “Order Product” button to start processing the order.

If your customer asks to change the shipping address once the order has already been purchased from the supplier, you should immediately contact the supplier by direct message and ask to change the address of the shipment.

If the order has not been dispatched, the supplier should agree to change the address.

How to Cancel an Order

If your customer wants to cancel an order, you will need to follow these steps:

1. Cancel the order from your supplier and get the refund.
2. Cancel the order in the Shopify admin and issue a refund to your customer.

You can only cancel the order from the supplier if the order is not yet shipped out. If you have already paid for your order, the cancellation request needs to be approved by the supplier first. If an agreement is reached, the supplier will not ship your order and the transaction will be cancelled automatically. You will receive your refund between 3-15 business days.

If no agreement is reached, the seller will continue to ship your order.

Cancelling the AliExpress Product Order

2. Find the needed order and click “Cancel Order” next to it.

3. From the pop-up window, confirm the cancellation request.

2. Select the needed order.
3. Click “More actions” and then “Cancel ” order.

4. From the opened modal, adjust the refund amount if needed and select a reason for canceling the order.

How to Split Product Variants into Separate Products

You can split any product that has more than one variant into separate Shopify products. Here are the steps:

1.  Add the product to the Import list.

2. Click on the “Action” button and then “Split Product”.

3. If you want to split the product by the specific option such as by “Color” or “Size”, choose it from the pop-up window and click “Split to X Products”. 

In this case, we will create a separate product for each option variant. If you have one product with “L”, “M” size variants and you select to split it by size, you will end up with two different products each representing only one size (1 x L, and 1 x M).

Otherwise, you can split the product manually and select which product variants you would like to sell in your Shopify store.

For example, you can choose the “M” size variant and extract only this variant into a new product.

Note: When we create a new product, we disable the unused variants instead of deleting them. This allows you to easily enable a specific variant any time, even after you have split the product.
