Alister is a free powerful tool that will help your online store grow and expand by adding products from AliExpress website. You can add one or multiple AliExpress product links to your own inventory table. It’s like having a warehouse full of products ready for import.


If you don’t have a lot of time to search for the best products on AliExpress, Alister will do that for you. You can add your own ‘import rules’ using criteria such as product, seller ratings etc and ask Alister to fill your inventory for example on a weekly basis. This way you will stay on top of the selling trends and never run out of new products in your store.


All the product links that you or Alister add automatically, will land in the inventory table. From here you can briefly preview the item and ‘load’ it to the product editor. The best part is that you can select multiple products and they will load to a new tab ‘GROUP’ of products that you can edit simultaneously to be even faster.


This tool will do the creative writing for you. With the AI generator you can have a new title & description of the product within a few clicks.


Change the product details, add more images, set the prices and edit the product variations all on one page. There’s even a Translator tool to help you be more efficient with languages when translating product properties.


Set up your product price rules (use a multiplier field to multiple AliExpress price i.e. x 2) to be synchronised with AliExpress prices. So if they change the price – it will change accordingly on your website.


Our team is always happy to hear from you and provide incredible support. Ask your questions in the support forum or contact us directly.


Installation is free, quick, and easy. Alister doesn’t require account creation.

  1. Paste one or multiple AliExpress product links and hit ‘add’ button to add the products to the inventory table below.

  2. Optional: set up the import rules

Firstly, set your own criteria of what kind of products you would like to add to the inventory table. For example, maybe you want to have top ten best rated cat beds imported on a weekly basis (btw this is called polling).

Give this rule a name ex.: ‘Top selling cat beds’.

Paste the URL to the cat bed category on AliExpress OR search on AliExpress for ‘cat beds’ and paste the link with the results.

Next, decide on a product and seller’s rating (product rating, seller rating) and how many times the item was sold (orders). ‘Limit’ means how many cat beds you would like to import each time and how often (polling).

Lastly, set the language, destination and currency of your shop.

Hit ‘check’ button to see if your criteria worked according to your expectations (you can click on each product link generated). If so, you can already hit ‘import’ and add those products to the inventory table and also ‘save’ the rule.

  1. Load the product or multiple products to the product editor.

  2. Add a few properties and generate the title and description.

  3. Edit the product description.

  4. Choose the images.

  5. Set up the pricing rule.

  6. Choose the variations you’d like to import.

  7. Finally, click import and follow the new permalink to preview your new product online.

I’ve been using the Alister WooCommerce plugin to import products from AliExpress for a few months now, and I’m really happy with it. It’s a very easy-to-use plugin that makes it a breeze to add products to my store. I especially like the fact that I can import products in bulk, which saves me a lot of time. This is a great plugin because it allows me to import products category-wise by putting category links even you don’t need to install any extension. Overall, I’m really happy with the Alister WooCommerce plugin. It’s a great tool for anyone who wants to import products from AliExpress. I would definitely recommend it to others.

This can’t get any easier to use: copy&paste either the URL or the ID, it automatically starts to do its thing. If it can get what it needs, you are well on your way. If for some reason it cannot process the URL (like if the product isn’t available to be shipped to your location), it errors out. The message could be more verbose but that is really nitpicking. The AI is BRILLIANT. No more broken English or culturally incorrect wording. Instead you get a configurable number of options to us. Select one and it drops it in the description. Move down and verify the images are ok. Select what variations you want to process (including being able to change the variation label to something you want – NICE!!), then set your price multiplier (including the shipping if desired). Double check that things look ok, then either push to draft or publish. The only glitch I’ve come across – and it might not be a glitch but instead Ali-foolery, is that sometimes shipping comes up with a cost when the Ali says its free (better than the alternative) and randomly, the Ali price is WAAAAAAAAAAY off, like an $8 widget on Ali comes up as a $6000 item in Alister. This is random and repeatable on the same item so suspect something is lost in translation or Ali is playing weird. Just push to draft and fix the numbers. Oh, and if you don’t set a price, it puts it out of stock. Overall, I’m completely pleased with this plugin. Kudos!
