By Olga L.

Let’s talk about the ‘geeky’ side of launching your own independent eCommerce venture! From this video, you will learn how to create an online store with dropshipping. More specifically, we will tell you all about the necessary technical elements of your future business.

Technically speaking, what are the must-haves of an online store? Do you already know that? Let’s watch our explanation video to find it out!

So, what are the takeouts?

To create an online store with dropshipping, start with the domain name choice and purchase

In fact, a domain name is the core of your brand identity.

The domain name you’re buying for your dropshipping store is more than just a part of its website address. Basically, it’s the first thing that your store visitors see. Therefore, it introduces them to your business and even forms some expectations about the products you offer!

So, take this step seriously. Here, you will find a detailed instruction on a domain name choice.

A hosting is essential to create an online dropshipping store

Indeed, if you are not using a hosting service, no one can see your website. It is true not only for dropshipping stores, but for all the general websites as well. Thanks to hosting, a website content gets ‘published’ online, and therefore, people can access it.

It’s up to you to decide which hosting provider you will use. If your store is powered by AliDropship solutions, the best option for you is to choose our hosting service as well: they are perfectly optimized to work together.

A content management system forms the basis of your dropshipping website

A convenient content management system, or CMS, is the thing that lets you create a website without coding. For this purpose, dozens of thousands of entrepreneurs worldwide choose WordPress – and we are not an exception 🙂

Our self-owned dropshipping stores are based on WordPress, and this is why we know it for sure it’s the best find for an online business owner. Here, you can read why WordPress is the perfect CMS – especially for a beginner.

A proper tool can turn any basic WordPress website into a fully functional dropshipping store

WordPress is amazing – it’s free, user-friendly, and easy to learn. However, it’s not really suitable for online stores specifically. For example, it doesn’t have an integrated shopping cart, a payment system, and lots of other elements that you must have in a webstore.

To convert a WordPress website into a perfectly working online store, you don’t need much. AliDropship plugin lets you easily transform any WordPress-based website into a beautiful, profit-oriented store that integrates with AliExpress, accepts payments and processes orders.

Oh, and if you don’t want to deal with all this technical stuff, you don’t have to! You can simply order a ready-to-go dropshipping store made by an expert team just for you. This is how it all works!

That’s it!

Now, you know exactly what you need to start your dropshipping journey, and we hope it will inspire you to make your first steps on this amazing road!
