2. Can I start a dropshipping business living in my country?
The whole model of dropshipping business means that you are free to do it from ANY point on the globe. AliDropship plugin has no limitations as well – you can use it in any country.
Speaking of the geography, it’s important to say you can use AliDropship plugin to customize your store if you’re targeting some specific country.
Maybe you just want to go global, and this is awesome.
But if you want to work with people from some exact country or region, you can easy make your store appealing for them.
Well, first of all, you can set any currency you like. US dollars, euros, British pounds, etc. – you are free to choose any national currency to make your store visitors comfortable. They will see this currency in items’ price, and also on the checkout page when they are ready to make the payment.
Secondly, remember that the language matters! For example, when you’re editing single product pages to make them look good, you can import customer reviews from AliExpress. That’s a really good thing because people trust other clients’ reviews, right?
Thanks to the plugin, you can automatically translate the reviews left in any foreign language. Or alternatively, import only the reviews left by a citizen of a specific country – the plugin can do this, too.
3. What is the difference between AliDropship plugin and AliPlugin?
Oh, we’re speaking of 2 really different things now, so be attentive!
AliPlugin is an affiliate plugin. You can’t build an independent store with it.
Yes, AliPlugin lets you import products from AliExpress, but your site will NOT be a marketplace. When your store visitors click on a product, they are redirected to AliExpress, and that’s where they make a purchase. With this type of business, your profit is the commission for every purchase that happened on AliExpress with your help.
At the same time, AliDropship plugin is the thing that helps you build your very own dropshipping store. You’re a full owner, and all the purchases happen in your store.
4. How many sites can I create with the Plugin?
When you buy AliDropship plugin, you get your own personal license key.
This key is valid for one website/domain name. But if you decide to create another webstore in future, you can transfer your license to it for free.
5. Is $89 a one-time payment?
Yes, it is!
You only need to pay ONCE.
When you buy AliDropship plugin, you get a lifetime license. You make only one payment to get the plugin, there are no regular payments or any hidden fees.
6. Can I use AliDropship plugin with WooCommerce?
AliDropship plugin has 2 different versions: the original AliDropship, and AliDropship Woo.
So, if you need a plugin for WooCommerce, it is better to choose AliDropship Woo.

7. Can I switch to AliDropship Woo plugin in the future?
Yes, you can.
Please remember that all of your settings will be lost in this case.
The original AliDropship plugin and AliDropship Woo are not compatible with each other. So, you will need to reinstall your WordPress, and start your website from scratch.
On the bright side, you won’t have to buy another license key! Just let us know, and we will reset the license you already have.

No, it is not. AliDropship only works on WordPress-based dropshipping sites.
