I have already uploaded over 2000 products on my alidropship woo.

What should i do?

It’s great that you’ve managed to import so many products without hurting your store performance! For now, take some time to see how your store operates.
If everything is fine, just run your store as usual and don’t import any more products.
If you notice that something works incorrectly or slowly, you will have to delete at least 50-100 products and check the store performance again.

I have the original AliDropship but I want to use klarna and it’s woocommerce what can I do because AliDropship built my store

Olga L. May 31, 2019 5:05:55

Hi, thank you for your question!

In fact, Klarna is not the only global payment provider with a great reputation. There are lots of alternatives, and many of them are supported by AliDropship.

Please, look through this list of the payment gateways we support: Pick the one that is most convenient for you and your country, and you won’t need to adapt your store to it. You will simply need to install it on your website, and you will be ready to go.

If you want to use Klarna anyway, you will have to switch to AliDropship Woo. In this case, unfortunately, you will lose all your store settings, products, etc., and will need to set everything up once again. If you are OK with it – please, contact our support team to learn what to do: send an email to

I want to use POD can i do that using AliWOO? My Supplier has option to integrate with Woocommerce

Hi, thank you for your question!
Yes, you can. AliDropship plugin lets you sell products even if they aren’t offered by AliExpress sellers

I like to ask_
Does Alidropship Original plugin works well with on POD? or Alidropship + Woo plugin works well? or Alidropship did not have any partnership with POD companies in nature?

Hi, thank you for your question!

AliDropship Original and AliDropship Woo plugin versions can only connect to AliExpress. Still, you can add non-AliExpress products (please, read the instructions here, but there will be some performance limitations.

Do I have to pay for all the products uploaded in my store

Olga L. January 16, 2020 10:12:32

Hi, thank you for your question!

If you’re adding the products by yourself (read more here or ordering a custom store that already has some products imported (see more here, you don’t have to pay anything extra.

You will only need to pay for the products if you’re importing them from the paid Import Packages here or ordering the Product Data Entry service here

Differences are clear. However what confuses me is Woo should be for beginners as less items are sold… So it should be the platform to test and learn dropshipping… However after the video it turns out to be the original aliexpress is more suitable for beginners…. Criuous about that…

Olga L. March 17, 2020 13:52:51

Hi, thank you for your interest!

The amount of products you can sell is not fixed – so, you can surely sell 50 or 30 or 20 (or less) items through the original AliDropship store if you want to test and learn dropshipping.

The thing that makes Woo more complicated is the variety of settings. Of course, experienced developers who know how to code will be glad to set up their stores flexibly. But for a beginner, it’s safer to start with a more straightforward option – the original one.

Hope that helps!

I wonder, If I installed Alidropshipping original, can I imports products from outside Aliexpress? or I have to choose only from Aliexpress?

Olga L. April 27, 2020 6:08:48

Hi, thank you for your interest!
Whether you’re using AliDropship Woo or AliDropship Original, you can add non-AliExpress products, too (please, read the instructions here and note that there will be some performance limitations)
