Dear Olga,
Thanks for a nice video. I am bit concerned about restricting AliDropship plugin to certain themes (e.g, DaVinci, now a premium WP theme) as I invested some time tuning Mystile on WooCommerce.
I have 2 specific questions: 1) Does AliDropship work with Mystile theme? 2) Does the Woo version of AliDropship plugin support all features that you covered in the video?
Thanks a lot.

Olga,
You sent a nice, rather old, article (alidropship-plugin-vs-alidropship-woo-dropshipping-tools) with link for a comparison chart that was not complete though. This helped me decide that AliDropship Woo plugin (with a woo theme of my choice) is the right choice for me.

BUT, my question is still about AliDropship plugin NEW features that WooCommerce doesn’t support. Does AliDropship Woo plugin support the following:

1) Installs in-store SEO (meta data for home and all product pages)
2) Installs your new image editor for imported photos (very important)
3) Installs marketing add-ons (abandoned cart, countdown timers, sales pop-ups).
4) Compatible with Social Rabbit Plugin

Please answer my questions precisely or give us a link with a complete comparison chart that covers all possible points including mine. Note that I am not asking about any features that WooCommerce already supports (e.g., coupons, payment gateways, etc). Thanks!

Hello Olga!
I have a quick suggestion I didn’t see the Product category option while following the tutorials. It took me some time but I was able to find on another website that in order to see that option under “Main Menu” I had to go up to the right top corner in the Apperance>Menus>Screen options.I thought I was doing the steps wrong but I, in fact, was not it’s a small step but I could not complete it without noticing that was not there.
