What is AliExpress API and what its limits?

How Can We Help?

AliExpress API is a set of official digital methods that AliExpress team made for developers who create own apps working with AliExpress platform. These methods allow plugins to manipulate with their platform and its data.

Using AlIExpress API the plugin gets access to some sensitive user information such as products, orders, shipping information. etc. Therefore before using these methods you should generate your own Access Token that is like a contract between you, AliExpress and plugin to exchange data.

AliExpress API documentation doesn’t give the exact information on the API limit that they give per each token. Our tests show that the actual limits are really high and regular stores doesn’t face with any limits. However, sometimes you can see the message from the plugin that your token has been temporary frozen or you can get empty data instead of actual product or order data. It happens when you have a lot of products in your store. In this case normally we recommend users to stop import and sync requests for some time and continue to do that next day.

As alternative variant if your business can’t afford you to wait, we made a new plugin (AliNext) that works with our own parsers, therefore it gives the fresh information from AlIExpress always. You can compare our first plugin with new solution on pricing page. Plugin has similar interface, therefore if you consider the migration you can migrate with easy.
