The setting option is full of different settings but in Shopify dropshipping stores we especially use it for the implementation of pricing rules of products. By default, the pricing rule is multiplied by 2 and that is standard. Multiplied by 2 means if the price of a product in aliexpress is $10 it will show in your store for $20. You can change the multiple according to your desire but the suggested value is multiplied by 2.
