Alibaba Dropshipping For WooCommerce: The New Tool For Your Business!

By Timur Yuldashev

Sezam - new plugin for Alibaba dropshipping on WooCommerce

A true entrepreneur always seeks new opportunities to expand their business, find new partners, and new markets. The new Sezam plugin lets you start Alibaba dropshipping with WooCommerce stores. Let’s see what benefits you can expect. 

Alibaba dropshipping on WooCommerce is now available!

As you probably know, Alibaba is the world’s largest B2B ecommerce platform where businesses can purchase goods in bulk directly from manufacturers.

But wait! A dropshipping business doesn’t sell products in bulk! The whole idea of dropshipping is to buy products only after you get an order from a customer. A B2B platform is good for large retailers or wholesalers that use the traditional business model but not for dropshipping!

That’s true. But recently, Alibaba decided to team up with dropshippers around the world and created a special product range designed for dropshipping exclusively. So, now you can buy a single product and redirect it to your client.

Watch this video presentation to see the benefits of the new Sezam plugin that lets you import goods from Alibaba to your WooCommerce store.

What’s the point of reselling from Alibaba if you already buy products on AliExpress? Let’s take a look at the advantages Alibaba offers.

Advantages of Alibaba dropshipping

  • Prices are lower

AliExpress is well known for its low prices. That’s why dropshipping is so popular. But most sellers on this platform are mediators that get their share of profit by raising the initial prices.

On Alibaba, you will be able to purchase goods directly from manufacturers, which means you can lower your sale prices to compete with other retailers or benefit from higher profit margins.

  • You can customize products

Another advantage of using Alibaba dropshipping for WooCommerce is the fact that you can customize the products you order. Since you buy from manufacturers, you can ask the seller to put your brand label on the package. So, it’s a good opportunity to develop your own brand.

  • Warehouses in 200+ countries

Alibaba claims you can order dropshipping products from local warehouses located in more than 200 countries around the world. This should considerably shorten the shipping time.

  • The Sezam plugin will automate the process

And finally, there’s an official WooCommerce dropshipping plugin that will automate part of the process – Sezam! Now, let’s take a look at the features of Sezam.

The features of the Sezam plugin

  • One-click import. The plugin lets you import products from Alibaba to your dropshipping store in just one click. The products imported from Alibaba come with images, descriptions, and variations.
  • Automatic order placement. You can order products for your clients manually or automatically. Simply click on the ‘Order’ button, confirm the purchase, and get the tracking code.
  • Auto-updating. The plugin is always connected to Alibaba, so the information on your product pages will always stay up-to-date.

Hi, Mohammed.

Sezam is a WooCommerce plugin. So, it’ll work only with a WooCommerce website. If you have a WooCommerce store, it’ll work.
