What’s the most difficult part of starting an E-commerce Store with drop shipping business?
Well, no – even if people don’t want to make a full-scale research, they simply go with their heart.
Officially registering a venture?
Nope. For the majority of suppliers, it doesn’t matter whether you are registered or not – they will readily become your partners anyway.
Setting up a webstore?
Bingo! Yup, that’s it. It’s impossible to count how many people gave up the idea of starting a drop shipping business because they got worried about the technical part.
But why worry? With the right automated solution, you can set up a fully functioning drop shipping store in no time at all.
Watch and learn!

Creating a drop shipping store with the help of AliDropship plugin
AliDropship is a plugin that you install on your WordPress website. The plugin has tons of functions, but if you only use the most important of them, it won’t take you more than 1 hour to set up a ready-to-go drop shipping store.
How does it work?
1. You install the plugin – 5 minutes
Well, this step implies that you already have a website. Surely enough, the company can also create a ready-made customized store for you, but it’s not a must. If you own a website (no matter which exactly), the plugin installation will be more than enough to turn your site into a commercially fruitful destination.
Buy the plugin from the official website, and follow the setup instructions. Feel free to bother the support team if necessary.
2. You customize your site – 10 minutes
Not a rocket science at all. The plugin allows you to choose between several site themes, so just pick the one you fancy. You can also upload a store logo, change the color scheme, activate additional widgets and do other stuff to make your site look serious and reliable. Still, when you only begin working on your website, you don’t have to do all this at once – just go with the basics for a start.
3. You add items to your store – 10 minutes
The plugin connects to AliExpress and searches this platform for the items you like.
It’s up to you to specify any search criteria you fancy – the product category, the relevant keywords, the average feedback score, etc. The plugin will use these parameters to scan through AliExpress and automatically add all the suitable items to your drop shipping store.
Alternatively, you can use the ‘Direct Import’ button. When you hit it, you are redirected to AliExpress. Thanks to this function, you can go through the platform and instantly add any products you like to your store directly from the website.
4. You edit product pages – 30 minutes
Could be more, could be less. It depends on your desire to make the product pages look super ultra insanely cool.
When you import items from AliExpress, you automatically import everything that is placed there: item title, product description, photos, videos, feedback, customer reviews, etc. You can leave it as it is and keep going, there is no doubt about it.
Still, if you want to increase conversion rate, it is a great idea to make some changes into your product descriptions. You surely remember the long and bizarre AliExpress titles, right? So start with them to make your website look decent, and then gradually improve all the other elements placed on the product pages.
5. You set the main store currency and markup formula – 5 minutes
Oh, that’s the most interesting part. The profit from your drop shipping business is the difference between the supplier’s selling price and your own selling price.
The plugin can automatically recalculate your own selling price for all the items listed in your store, or for selected product categories. Do you want to increase all the supplier’s prices 3 times? Okay. 5 times? Okay. Some more elaborate scheme? Okay! Even if you have no idea about the price you’d like to see in the end, it’s not a problem. There is a ‘Set Recommended Price’ button – just click it, and the plugin will apply some average reasonable markup formula.
Basically, that’s it. Your drop shipping store is now ready to welcome and serve customers, and you are now ready to sell stuff and make money.
Doesn’t sound that scary, right?
