Auto updates settings
These settings allow you to choose what to do when a product or its variant disappears or when the price and stock changes:
When a product disappears – when a product is no longer available on AliExpress.com you can make sure that customers are not able to continue placing orders for the product.
‘Unpublish product’ will simply remove the product from your Store and it won’t be visible.
‘ Set Quantity To Zero’ makes your product ‘Out of stock’ and while your customers will be able to see it, they won’t be able to order it.
The ‘ Do Nothing’ setting is self-explanatory and doesn’t change anything if the product is gone from AliExpress.com.
When a variant disappears – sometimes suppliers run out of stock for some product variants. In such cases, this setting helps you avoid unwanted orders;
‘Remove variant’ – will simply remove the variant from the product page in your store. It will not be visible to your customers.
‘ Set Quantity To Zero’ – makes your product ‘Out of Stock’ – same as previously mentioned.
‘Do Nothing’ – same as mentioned previously.
When the cost changes – updates your product prices in accordance to your supplier’s pricing. It is a very useful setting that allows you to automatically adjust your prices.

When inventory changes – updates your product inventory automatically. It is useful if you wish to keep track of your supplier’s stock.
The Notify Me checkbox allows you to receive notifications when one of the previously mentioned events occur. You can check your notifications from the toolbar menu on the left side of your
