    If you answered yes, to any of these questions, then this Alidropship review is for you…

    Here’s proof that I’ve bought AliDropship for my ecommerce store

    WordPress + AliDropship = Savings

    Shopify has taken the ecommerce industry by storm. Because it made launching an ecommerce store in just a few clicks, it gained popularity as the go-to platform when it comes to launching and managing an ecommerce business.

    But for those who are not a fan of Shopify (because of their monthly recurring fees, transaction fees and a bunch of paid apps), you might probably be looking for an alternative in launching your own dropshipping business.

    One of my favorite options is by using WordPress + AliDropship Themes and Plugins which equates to hundreds if not thousands of dollars in savings.

    In this Alidropship review, I will dive deep into the details on how you can build your own dropshipping store in just a few steps with minimal investment costs…

    But before we dive into Alidropship, let me quickly refresh your memory on what Drop shipping is all about.

    What is Dropshipping?

    First and foremost, Dropshipping is NOT dead. But obviously a lot of things have changed in the eCommerce world and with the pandemic going on.

    Google trends shows that Dropshipping is trending higher and higher each month and that's a good sign…

    But there are still thousands of Dropshippers worldwide. The idea of Dropshipping is this…

    When someone completes a purchase on your ecommerce store or website, you collect payment for that purchase and then purchase that item from a supplier (preferably from China because of cheaper prices).

    The supplier receives payment and sends the package to the address of the customer that purchased from your website.

    You pocket the difference between what the customer paid and what you paid to the supplier (cost of marketing, website, etc).

    With Dropshipping, you can see how every little bit of thing adds to the cost of goods sold and therefore eats more profits from your margin.

    And Shopify, which is one of the world's most popular ecommerce platforms right now, that costs increases almost every year.

    You have to pay Shopify membership fees..

    You have to pay Shopify transaction fees…

    You have to pay for premium apps that are crucial to the success of your ecommerce websites and that could easily add up to hundreds if not thousands of dollars each month….

    But not with AliDropship. If you want to launch your ecommerce store the practical way, this is how AliDropship can help with that…

    This AliDropship solution requires WordPress (which is Free), a decent website hosting provider (I use and recommend WPX Hosting for my websites and ecommerce stores – read my full tutorial and review here). Highly converting themes are also included (some are free, some are paid) with Alidropship.

    And there are NO monthly recurring costs on the apps that's included when you buy the Alidropship Add-ons bundle.

    Alidropship Plugin

    Once you've purchased AliDropship, you'll get an email confirmation with the download information.

    There will be 3 download links. One is for the AliDropship plugin, the other is for the Woocommerce version and the last is for the AliDropship Themes.

    Let's quickly talk about the default AliDropship plugin.

    If you choose the Alidropship plugin, you WON'T NEED Woocommerce or any Woocommerce extensions because it won't be compatible.

    Alidropship Plugin (Main version)

    You just have to choose either the Alidropship plugin or the Alidropship Woo version. I would recommend that you choose the main Alidropship version and NOT the Woo plugin version because there are more themes, features and capabilities added on the main version.

    Alidropship Woo Plugin

    The Woocommerce version requires Woocommerce and that adds to the complexity of installing this version because you need to have separate add-ons and extensions that are also Woocommerce compatible.

    I've tried this version and there's no benefit for me in going with this version.

    Your case might be different, especially if you already have an existing WordPress Woocommerce store and migrating would create more work and headache.

    Alidropship vs Shopify

    The main difference for Shopify and AliDropship is that Shopify is an all-in-one ecommerce platform. It contains payment processing, website hosting (domain is separate) and ecommerce platform in one.

    AliDropship is a WordPress plugin that you install on your WordPress website and it allows for easier management of your dropshipping business.

    Alidropship vs Oberlo

    AliDropship and Oberlo have the same function: to manage your dropshipping business from Aliexpress.

    The biggest difference is that Oberlo ONLY works with Shopify. And if you want to use WordPress then Alidropship is the solution that you're looking for.

    Alidropship vs Woocommerce

    Woocommerce is mainly for a WordPress ecommerce business. It can be used not only for dropshipping but for any type of ecommerce business.

    AliDropship is specifically designed for building a semi-automated dropshipping business inside WordPress.

    AliDropship also has a Woocommerce version of it's plugin if you prefer to use Woo in your ecommerce store.

    Alidropship Themes

    There's a bunch of FREE as well as PAID themes that are highly converting. Make sure that you pick the right theme for your Alidropship version (Main vs Woo version).

    Alidropship Products

    AliDropship is more than a WordPress plugin. There are more products on their website.

    Alidropship Hosting

    You'll need a reliable website hosting provider (not included in your AliDropship plugin purchase). I have not personally tested their service as I already have an existing WordPress website hosting provider: WPX Hosting (read my tutorial here)
