So, what have we prepared for you? Let’s find it out!

What’s new in our WooCommerce WordPress plugin: easy store management

These AliDropship Woo plugin advancements are made to help you navigate and run your own store more conveniently from the technical point of view.

New interface

On the screenshot below, you can see the new, improved interface of the admin panel.

Here, you can find a convenient categories’ menu on the left. All the AliDropship Woo plugin’s tools and functions are logically grouped and divided between these categories, which helps you instantly find and access the desired elements of your store.

Activities list

In the Main menu, you can see a wonderful Activities List section – here, you will find the details of the recent changes that happened after the latest products update.

So, it’s super easy for you to keep track of the events like the original AliExpress price modification or stock availability change: you don’t manually browse every product to monitor its individual update, you simply use the system to access and view all the important changes automatically!

What’s new in our WooCommerce WordPress plugin: product import and editing

Thoughtfully picked products with wisely edited descriptions and reviews are the foundation of your successful drop shipping business. This is why we focused our development efforts on making it easier for you to import and manage products on your website!

Notes’ field

As a drop shipping store owner, most likely, you deal with several various AliExpress suppliers: all of them have their own peculiarities and distinctive features (preferred payment methods, package dispatch period, special price offers for dropshippers, etc.).

You don’t have to bear all this in mind: simply write down the most important details about this particular seller in the designated Notes field, and enjoy the easy access to this data at any given moment.

Images’ choice

AliExpress product pages are commonly filled with various images – and, as you probably know, the more pictures a page has, the longer it takes it to load.

This is why AliDropship Woo plugin now has an exciting feature: you can choose which visual references (featured images, gallery photos, or variations pictures) will be imported along with the desired products.

Select the type of the images you want to upload, and all the other pictures will stay where they are – on AliExpress. This way, you will only fill your store with the strictly necessary photos, and won’t have to waste your time on elimination of the unwanted images – and besides, you won’t overload your server with unnecessary pictures!

Oh, and there is one more useful image-related update: from now on, you can add the images located into the item description to the product picture gallery.

Bulk actions for product attributes

The newest version of AliDropship Woo plugin makes it possible to automatically apply the same actions to several product attributes.

With this long-awaited feature, you can, for example, delete Item Specifics from the attributes in a single click – at the same time, the attributes related to product variations will remain unchanged.

Certainly, such automated operations save lots of your time; what’s even more important, they prevent you from mixing something up and worrying about incorrect product amendments.

Bulk reviews import

Actually, our Woocommerce WordPress plugin already had the function of mass reviews import: AliExpress product reviews are an important element of social proof, and we understand their necessity for your drop shipping store.

But, we decided to improve the importing function, so, now you can use more flexible search parameters to pick the desired reviews more carefully!

With the newest plugin version, it is possible to import reviews for specific categories, or only import feedback for the products that have a small amount of reviews as for now. You can read more about it here.

What’s new in our WooCommerce WordPress plugin: product management

After your drop shipping store gets filled with good-looking products of high quality, you need to keep an eye on these items. Thanks to the newest implemented features, some of the routine daily tasks can be delegated to the AliDropship Woo plugin.

Flexible pricing formula

From now on, you can set up a specific pricing formula for any product category, or complement the basic formula with the additional one to cover your taxes, shipping fees, or other expenses.

Also, you can enable discount settings if you want to make special offers in your store. You can apply these settings to all the pricing formulas you’ve specified, or to any product categories at your choice.

This option could be enabled in all pricing formulas and could be applied to all product categories or to the particular one. Nothing stops you from modifying your pricing strategy as you wish!

Convenient stock management

It’s not a rare occasion for an AliExpress product to go out of stock, but, with our cutting-edge plugin innovations, these situations won’t take you by surprise.

‘Notify Me’ option

With AliDropship Woo plugin, once a day, you get specific email notifications describing the changes made by the original AliExpress seller. It’s up to you to decide what types of notifications to receive – the options are the following:

  • When a product goes out of stock or disappears from AliExpress
  • When a product variation goes out of stock or disappears from AliExpress
  • When the original AliExpress price changes
  • When AliExpress product stock changes

So, you stay aware of all the changes happening on AliExpress, and none of the sellers’ actions pose a threat to your business.

Besides, you can activate the ‘Set quantity to zero’ settings: when a product disappears from AliExpress or goes out of stock, its quantity is displayed as zero in your drop shipping store – as the result, your potential buyers don’t get disappointed by a half-completed purchase.

What’s new in our WooCommerce WordPress plugin: orders processing

Wow, your store is receiving orders! How to process them easily, with no hassle and mistakes? AliDropship Woo plugin has a couple of perfect solutions!

Country code autofilling

When you’re doing autofilling to transfer the order details to your AliExpress supplier, you don’t have to type the necessary country code manually.

Instead, you can adjust the necessary settings and change your buyers’ numbers with the default phone number automatically to save your time and nerves.

Convenient tracking section

This is a completely new section where you can find the tracking data for products purchased from AliExpress.

Using the ‘Sync’ button, you can easily monitor and update all your tracking IDs in bulk or one by one.

Besides, you can see not only the tracking data, but also an estimated delivery time for each item! Certainly, it makes your managing tasks much more easy to complete.

What’s new in our WooCommerce WordPress plugin: buyer-friendly innovations

We care about the well-being of your store, which is why we want to make it more convenient not only for you, but for your buyers as well! We believe that these innovations will help you improve customer relations, as well as the conversion rate.

Currency switcher

This built-in currency switcher makes it possible for your store visitors to switch between the different currencies available in your store.

This way, it will be easier for your guests to make up their minds and come to a purchasing decision!

New tracking settings

To keep your buyers relaxed and trouble-free, you can now include the estimated delivery time into the email notifications sent to your customers. This way, your clients will understand when they are going to receive their orders.

As you can see, the updates to the AliDropship Woo plugin are massive. We can’t wait to see you upgrading to the latest version of this WooCommerce WordPress plugin – to do this, simply follow these instructions if you are already using the plugin, or buy it right now to start building a successful moneymaking venture.

    Thank you Alec for such a GREAT feedback!

Awesome upgrade! The plugin is now more powerful than before.

One question for you @ Yoros::
With this upgrade, will it be possible to implement the plugin on a store with multiple sellers? So that each seller can import using the plugin?

    Yaroslav Nevsky August 24, 2018 6:39:57

    Thank you! Could you please explain in further what do you mean by ‘each seller can import using the plugin’?

      CosmicJames August 24, 2018 17:50:04

      I mean a store with multiple sellers. (multvendor store) Will it be possible for each vendor to use the plugin to import products from Ali express?

Jagunmolu AbdulFatai Ad August 24, 2018 8:00:45

I love this!

Bharati Shah August 24, 2018 8:19:29

Hi Yaros,
What about those who already have WordPress alidropship website , will installing this plugin will affect the current website ??

Thanks

    Yaroslav Nevsky August 24, 2018 9:45:05

    It is not possible to use both plugins on one site as well as it is not possible to switch between AliDropship original plugin and its Woo version.

Jorge Salazar August 24, 2018 9:36:19

Great Job guys!, Thanks for this amazing update for the Woo version I love it!…

The only thing I wish is that you make this version of Woo compatible with the others add-ons like the “Abandoned Cart” for example. It is a pity that we cannot use that plugin for the woo version but probably with this new version is possible, isn’t?

David Moses August 24, 2018 10:02:24

This is just AWESOME! I use both the Alidropship plugin & the Alidropship Woo on my two stores. Been waiting for these updates to the Woo version for a long time! Thank You Yaroslav & Alidropship Team!

Dejan Marinkovic August 24, 2018 11:14:54

Just a one question … are this plugin translate on some another common languages? Because I plan other market also.

    Yaroslav Nevsky August 24, 2018 11:50:21

    if you mean importing products in other languages, then yes, you can import in any language supported by AliExpress.

Guruprashad Singh August 24, 2018 12:43:05

This is Awesome, Great features added .. I love the images choice feature .
Cheers !

Michael Ja August 24, 2018 15:09:38

Is the update available? Do I have to update it manually?

Josh Gier August 24, 2018 16:20:56

Awesome update. Thanks for the hard work guys!

Kat August 24, 2018 18:22:38

Love all of these changes. By chance does the new plugin work with WordPress Multisite? Waiting for this change as all of my sites are set up on a WordPress Multisite Network. I’d gladly switch from my current plugin to this one once it is compatible.

Mooper August 25, 2018 6:09:48

Hi, good day. Is there any special discount available for alidropship plug in users when purchase items from the store.?Thanks.

Robert August 29, 2018 18:18:54

I love this!

Sharon September 20, 2018 6:18:57

I love your themes and plugins. I was wondering though if it’s possible to change plugins from the Ali to Woo? They look virtually the same. Both are good, but the four compatible themes for Ali Plugin are very very slow with a page load time of 20.64s. I figured if I swap plugins I can then change my theme to a faster one, and obviously I have more options with woo. What’s your thoughts?

Mak November 14, 2018 6:38:53

I have checked the plugin and many other import software. Is there anyway I can also import the shipping cost of the product to various country along with the product from aliexpress. Every product has different shipping and some give discount and I am getting a bit confused how to import shipping prices.
