    Hi

    I want to buy a plugin, but not sure which one is better. I saw both pages, it looks like Woolmporter has more options and cheaper in prices, but still need Expert Advice.

    Can anyone please suggest me, which one is better?

    AliDropship is a piece of junk IMO. They started as an affiliate plugin and then drop ship plugin, but it seems like the only reason they sell the plugin is to get people to beta test changes. They use their own plugin on things like worldofharry, but almost never the current version.

    Couple months ago there was a bug that caused every product price to change to zero. Check out their forums, many people reported it, and the best response was "we are trying our best". But that's the sort of bug that can ruin a business, and it took almost a week to get fixed. It happened to everyone using auto-updating prices so if they would have done any testing what-so-ever before publishing they would have found the bug.

    I've never used WooImporter myself. I started with AliDropship and moved to Shopify with Oberlo. It's more expensive but at least it works.

    I have been debating trying WooImporter though, as if I can get the products into WordPress then I can use WP-Lister for both eBay and Amazon. So I could import from AliExpress to my site and then sync with eBay and Amazon too.

    You can not import product variations if you buy only Woolmporter. You need to buy Aliexpress variations plugin too. This means you need to pay additional 40$.

    If you have tried both these plugins you can easily make a conclusion! I tried both. Alidropship is better. MUCH better. More features and more automated tools, built in themes and marketing add-ons. And it is all in one solution not like woo importer where you need to install additional plugin for each feature and pay for each of them, that's crazy

    I have a dropshipping store on woocommerce with AliDropship plugin and actually like everything about it. Marketing tools are awesome - tool for making sales and promotions by offering coupon, recovering abandoned carts, importing product reviews, collecting emails, seo . Btw, as for me, alodropship plugin is easier to use

    Alidropship is better, and they are constantly reviewing and upgrading their capabilities.

    Oberlo have been working on a wordpress theme for sometime now. They have an august/september time line, but Alidropship is a better option. I did some research on all those plugins and right now that is the best plugin for wordpess, check out their website and I read the creators journey on warrior forums. Yes the plugin started as his personal project but he decided to earn from it, but be prepared to pay per website.

    Shopify has recently bought Oberlo for 15 million US dollars. http://www.baltic-course.com/eng/good_for_business/?doc=129615
    So, as far as I know, they are not planning integration with WordPress now.

    I'm also in the same boat as OP in trying to figure out which plugin to go with between the two. One feature that I like about Wooimport is that you can import a product in another language. Does Alidropship offer the same feature? I'm in the international Seo and I gotta make every site I make count so I'm considering these plugin carefully.

    Yes, of course, you can import products in any languages supported by AliExpress, and it is not about the plugin. PM me and I give you AliDropship plugin for free that you can compare it with another plugin and share your review with us.
