How to import product variations and attributes?

How Can We Help?

The Ali2Woo plugin imports product variations and normal attributes (known as Item Specifics on AliExpress). Each variation is a set of attributes (for example color and size), therefore Ali2Woo saves variations and attributes separately. And then you can find both data in appropriate tabs on the product editing page.

Let’s see where variations are shown in AliExpress. In the next products you see variation built from two attributes: Ships From and Color.

Also, see the normal attributes called “Item Specifics” in English version

If you don’t need some attribute or variation, want to edit or rearrange them, you can do that in the Import List. Just untick unnecessarily items in the Specs and Variations tabs or edit their values. Also, if you want to edit these items in existed products, check out this article.


Do you see a burger button near every attribute on the screenshot above? If you press on it and drag your mouse, you can change the order of attributes.

On the Variations tab can change the values and names of the attributes included in variation. We have described this process in a separate post.

Please note:

All manipulation you make with attributes and variations in the Import List are safe. It means when you push the modified product to Woocommerce, your changes will not be lost after AliExpress synchronization.
