Default Meet X-Cart 4.7.3 with Alibaba Integration aboard

Hi everyone!
Many of you are already looking forward to a long weekend. It's coming=) But before you leave for vacations, take a look what we prepared!

The new version integrates with Alibaba! This very module is already available for testing, but is still in beta. Please give us your feedback and it will go stable soon!

There are many other improvements, the overview is available in our blog, or, if you prefer "technical docs" instead, I'll post the changelog shortly:

I'm afraid we do not speak Chinese to offer a high-quality translation by our own means. If you speak Chinese and ready to translate and share your package with our community ( say, in exchange for X-Cart license as a gratitude from our side), please PM me.

There's also a Google Translation available in X-Cart marketplace.though, but I have no idea how far it is from a human-made one:

How about enabling the export of other products to Alibaba wholesalers? If I have a product to advertise to Alibaba salers, can this modue do so? Is this module just oneway to Alibaba and not 2 ways to both Alibaba and the manufacturer in Europe or U.S.A.? Can a manufacturer or a saler in Euro or U.S. sale to Alibaba using this module? If so, please display a creen shut of this. Thanks.

Currently it's planned as a one-side integration ( from Alibaba to your store). If what you're describing is supported by the integration API of Alibaba, and there will be requests of this feature from a number of merchants of ours, we will consider adding it too.

Yes, Alibaba API does support uploading products to their site.
There will be more people wanting to sell in Alibaba, especially when Alibaba is growing internationally so fast.
I would love to see this feature soon!
