    Updated 11 October 2023

    Opencart Dropship Image Variation Importer: This module allows you to import the image variation (Color options) while importing the product to Opencart from the Aliexpress store.

    Earlier we can import the product with options as text only from AliExpress to the Opencart store but now there is an option to import the color variations as text/image. This add-on is created for AliExpress.

    This add-on will allow you to import color options as text/image along with the product from AliExpress to the Opencart store.

    Now the customers will get exactly the same image variations of the products as it is present on AliExpress Marketplace.

    Note: This extension is an add-on to Webkul’s Opencart AliExpress Dropship Management Module, so to use this extension you need to install it first.
