AliDropship WooCommerce is the WooCommerce dropship plugin derives from the original AliDropship Plugin (WordPress). AliDropship Plugin (WordPress) is a premium dropshipping plugin that simplified the creation of an AliExpress Dropshipping Store.
The AliDropship Plugin (WordPress) is aimed at beginners that have little to no experience in creating an e-commerce store. It gives you a very simplified e-commerce store setup options.
This AliDropship WooCommerce version is aimed at those with some degree of experience. If you already know how to set up a WooCommerce store from scratch, then this plugin is for you.
Here’s a simple comparison of the features between AliDropship Plugin (WordPress) and AliDropship WooCommerce version.
Simplicity of Setup
- AliDropship Plugin (WordPress) version beats AliDropship WooCommerce version due to its simplified setup. It has all the main settings in a single page
- AliDropship WooCommerce version has a lot more settings to be configured. You will need to install additional plugins to have some of the same functionality offered in the WordPress version
- AliDropship Plugin (WordPress) version has simple but limited customization options available
- AliDropship WooCommerce version, on the other hand, has a lot more customization options available thus giving it a more flexibility
- With AliDropship Plugin (WordPress), you are limited to only a handful of add-ons (free and paid) that are built by the AliDropship team themselves
- You can use any available WooCommerce add-ons that are available in the WooCommerce marketplace with the AliDropship WooCommerce. This adds a lot of additional functionality to your store
- AliDropship Plugin (WordPress) is limited to only 4 themes created by the AliDropship team. This also means you may potentially have the exact same look and feel like any other dropship store out there that is also using the same plugin
- AliDropship WooCommerce allows you to use any WooCommerce themes out there thus giving you the flexibility to create any unique look for your own dropship store
If you are a beginner that does not know how to set up a WooCommerce store, I strongly recommend that you start with the AliDropship Plugin (WordPress) version to avoid being overwhelmed by all the confusing setup. However, if you have some experience with WooCommerce, you should definitely use AliDropship WooCommerce for the more flexible customizations.
