The Alidropship plugin includes this option. But you have to use third party plugins to split variations on the Alidropship Woo.
Is there any third party plugin you could recommend? I could only find one that seemed to do this for woo-commerce. Hoping not the only option.
Thanks

I'm afraid that we can't recommend a particular plugin. It's possible some of forum members can share their experience and help you.

Allowing to do this in alidropship Woo when importing products should be a priority for you.

Sellers on aliexpress put everything in their variations which makes their products variations not relevant at all and its terrible for us and time consuming to split every variation by hand. Actually we almost loose the interest of using the plugin because of the number of things to correct after.

And no, no third party plugin allow to do that, even not the "Show single variations" plugin.

Please work of this, it's really an emergency !

So anyways. I think I figured out how to do exactly what we need to do, without any additional third party application.
It is possible to do it very easily within woocommerce itself. I can not think of any easier way really, not even worth you creating anything for it, it is so easy to do what needs to be done.

Maybe you can create an instruction page for this to help the other members who would like to do this.
---------------------------------------
1. You find a product that has many variations(10), lets say "color" as example, of the product.
2. You Import the product with all the 10 variations with all images, set up the title as you like for 1 and set up description as you like for it.
3. Enter your woocommerce products list in the admin area. Create 9 duplicates.
4. Go into each of the copies, and the original, and remove 9 of the variations from the product data section.
5. Update title and description for the variation of the product that you chose for the post.
5. Remove images you do not want, and set the featured image for the variation that you do want.
6. Publish.
-----------------------------------------------------

Let me know if you think this will work.
Thanks.

Thank you Alec but this is what I'm already doing... You know how long it takes to remove every useless variations in all duplicates products, on a store with 500+ products with at least 10 or 15 new ones every day ?... It is unmanageable... your solution works for small stores that add a few products sometimes...
