How to get Access Token from AliExpress?

When you start to import or synchronize products, import shipping methods, products reviews, etc you will see the following message: ” Session token is not found…

You have to get the token from AliExpress and make sure that your account on the AliExpress portal has the dropshipping type.

In order to do that please read our instructions below.

  3. Go to Ali2Woo > Account settings and click Get Access TokenClick get access token
  4. You will see a new popup where you need to confirm you want to use the AliExpress API via Ali2Woo. Just click Authorize.Popup aliexpress access token
  5. Now you should see a new token key in the tableSee added access token
  6. Sometimes the popup window can be blocked by your browser. Allow showing the popup in your browser if you will face the issue

    I followed all the steps, but it still doesn’t work.

    I generated the Aliexpress API but it always gives the same error:
    “Placing orders from 0/1…
    Please install and link to your website the Ali2Woo google chrome extension to use this feature.”

    and everything is installed, all the same as this link of yours.

    What is the solution?

      It seems that Aliexpress has temporarily blocked your API token. Our research suggests that this can happen when you are actively syncing or importing products. Usually, the token becomes unlocked within a few days.

      We understand that you have already tried to refresh your token using the instructions from the article. However, you can attempt to generate a new token again in a few days. If Aliexpress unlocks your account, then you will be able to import products once again.

      As an alternative solution, we offer AliNext, which doesn’t use the Aliexpress API for product imports or syncing. This means that you won’t encounter any token-related issues while using AliNext. Additionally, AliNext is fully compatible with Ali2Woo, making migration easy. If you’re interested in using AliNext, please check out this page: AliNext plugin
