Want to start a dropshipping store built on WordPress? If so, you’re going to want one of these WooCommerce dropshipping plugins to help make it easier to source dropshipping products and handle order fulfillment.
In this post, I’ve collected your best options, divided into two different categories.
First, I’ll cover some WordPress AliExpress dropshipping plugins. These plugins will help you connect your WooCommerce store to the popular AliExpress marketplace and dropship products that way. If that’s not your plan, I’ll also cover two plugins that let you work with any supplier, including an option to automatically generate purchase lists and packing slips and send them to suppliers.
Before we get started, let’s talk about why you might want to use one of these plugins in the first place.
Why Use a WooCommerce Dropshipping Plugin?
WooCommerce may be an excellent tool for managing a standard eCommerce store, but the basic plugin lacks certain features that you’ll need to run an effective dropshipping business with any kind of efficiency.
As a result, you’ll find yourself constantly moving back and forth between your WordPress website and dropshipping marketplaces like AliExpress, copying and pasting code, manually importing images and dealing with any number of other hassles every time you want to add products or manage your orders.
At best, this is a complete drain on your time, time that you could be better spending attracting customers and growing your business. At worst, it’s enough to put you off the very idea of dropshipping altogether.
Fortunately, the plugins we’re about to discuss offer an ideal solution, providing the missing link between WooCommerce’s exceptional eCommerce features and the benefits of opting for dropshipping over running a standard online store.
Once installed, these WooCommerce dropship plugins make it practically effortless to import products from AliExpress and other marketplaces and sell them through your site just as you would with your own physical products.
With that out of the way, let’s get started so that you can get dropshipping!
