When an order is being placed on AliExpress, Nimble will choose the shipping method depending on which algorithm you choose.

There are currently 4 shipping algorithms to choose from. To set up your shipping algorithm, follow the steps below.

  1. Login to your Dashboard
  2. Navigate to "Settings" > "Automation settings"
  3. Press the "AliExpress" tab
  4. Choose the shipping algorithm, and press "Save settings"

Below is a breakdown of the current algorithms that you can choose between.

  • Automatic Best - Nimble will systematically calculate the best shipping option based on price, tracking availability and delivery time. 
  • Cheapest Option - Nimble will choose the cheapest shipping option, while disregarding delivery time and tracking availability. 
  • Force ePacket - Nimble will always select ePacket if it's available.
  • Default Shipping - Nimble will select the default shipping option for a product.
