Thank u guys.
I'm Miles from the Social Care team at Shopify. Welcome to the Shopify Community! I'll answer your questions in the four parts that you've asked them.
Ordering from AliExpress
If I'm understanding correctly, you're referring to selling products in a pack together. If so, you can only do this if the supplier has the product listed in a pack. If they only have single items, your customer would need to purchase the quantity that they prefer. When importing products from Oberlo, it's important you don't edit SKU's or the products may not sync correctly when purchasing.
It's also worth noting when a customer purchases something connected to AliExpress, you then have to manually order the product for the customer. If you're using Oberlo, you'll be able to do this from the order page but there are some requirements. This guide should help you work through that.
With shipping, you'll need to set a shipping rate that yourself. If the order contains products from multiple suppliers, then you'll be paying shipping for each of those suppliers. So this is something you need to keep in mind when choosing what to charge your customers, as they'll only see what you've set the rate at.
Customers love free or cheap shipping. So it might be worth adding the shipping cost to the product price instead of charging shipping. For example, if you're average shipping costs with Ali Express are $10, it might be worth increasing product prices by $3-5 to cover that, that way you don't have to charge shipping to your customers, and you're covering it still within the product price itself. We have a guide around setting shipping rates that you should also check out!
Changing your Currency
You can change your currency settings in Settings > General. If the option to change your settings is greyed out, then you'll need to contact Shopify Support directly, as there are some considerations that they will walk you through before enabling you to change your currency. You can only have one base currency, so we would suggest choosing the one where most of your customers are.
You might also be interested in multi-currency, which means customers can shop in their preferred currency. If you're using Shopify Payments, you can check out this guide on how to enable multi-currency, otherwise, you'll need a multi-currency app from the Shopify App Store.
The currency you're paid in will be the currency selected as per the above instructions. This means, no matter what currency your customers pay in, you'll be paid in the store currency.
