Hi, Bonnie! Check your email. Good luck.

Parag Chokhawala 1 year ago

What is the target audiance for under 5$ store?.

Timur Y. 1 year ago

It depends on the niche rather than on the price. A bra and a super glue both cost less than $5, but I reall doubt they can be targeted at the same audience.

Hi I already have a website and e commerce platform how would I drop shop from my existing website ?

Thank you

Timur Yuldashev 3 months ago

Hello, Ashley. Thank you for your interest.

The AliDropship plugin is compatible with websites that were made on WordPress or WooCommerce (a WordPress plugin). Actually, when you buy the plugin, you get both the standard and Woo versions, so you can pick whichever suits you: https://alidropship.com/plugin/

If your current website was built on another CMS (not WordPress), I’m afraid you’ll have to find an alternative dropshipping solution. Or you could purchase one of our ready-made solutions:

– A custom Store: https://alidropship.com/start-new-business/
– A Premium Store: https://alidropship.com/premium-dropshipping-stores/

But in this case, you’ll get a completely new site built on WordPress.
