Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

↑ Back to top

1. After uploading a Variable Product from WooCommerce to Lazada, can I upload a new variant in WooCommerce and update the existing product in Lazada?

Ans. No, you cannot upload a new variant in WooCommerce as Lazada’s API doesn’t allow it. You will have to delete the whole item and re-upload it, or you can also upload it manually and sync them with the plugin.

2. I don’t see an image in the media center of the product edit page in Lazada when I upload a product from your plugin but I can see it after a manual upload. Why so?

Ans. When the image is processed while uploading through API calls, the image is not shown on the media center of Lazada.

3. While uploading a variable product, I get an error C008: duplicate attributes. What’s the reason?

Ans. It happens when there is no mapping of attributes in the profile edit section. For example, there is a shirt product with variations of color and size on the product edit page; you will have to map these attributes in the fields and find the meta keys of these attributes in the Meta keys and Attributes section. Select the meta key, and then they will be available for mapping.

4. I sometimes see that while uploading a product, the data is uploaded from another profile rather than the profile to which the product belongs. Is that a bug?

Ans. No, it’s not a bug. When you have two WooCommerce categories for a product, you map those two Woo categories with two different Lazada categories. In this situation, logically, if a product belongs to two different Woo categories, then those WooCommerce categories should be mapped to one Lazada category.

5. What does this message mean from Lazada- “Prices not in the proper range”?

Ans. It means that the price you are entering for the product is not acceptable from Lazada. The reason for this could be either you have entered the amount of the product very high, or there are differences in the price of the product variations. In both cases, Lazada will detect this and will send an error message. Therefore, you have to enter the correct price.

6. Why do I get “*****” in orders rather than the proper data of customers in orders?

Ans. It is termed as the masking of data. To get accurate data, you should have your own app(owned by you) on open.lazada.com, which will then be used in the plugin to unmask the data later on. All the API calls are then recorded on your owned app and after some time, when the app frequency is good, you can apply for the unmasking of data. Lazada follows a proper protocol through which your app will get passed, and if they find everything fine, they will provide the unmasked data to you.

7. Are the orders from Lazada also visible on the WooCommerce order section, and if it’s visible, how to differentiate between store order and Lazada order?

Ans. Yes, all the orders from Lazada will be visible on WooCommerce as well. There is an “Order source” column with a Lazada icon in WooCommerce for differentiating the orders in Lazada.
