    Does anybody here purchased a custom store from AliDropship?

    I have a few questions, since I've read various threads concerning the plugin itself, some say negative things about the plugin and some have their own success stories.

    1. Which do you think is better, creating your own site using the plugin or purchasing a custom store?
    2. Is the hosting good? I've seen loading issues with websites powered by Shopify and some seem faster than those hosted by AliDropship even though they have lots of images on the front page compared to the site with AliDropship.
    3. Does the plugin support other payment methods recently? I'm planning to add a payment method once I've bought the plugin. i've asked fellow dropshippers and they told me that it's better to stick with PayPal checkout instead for AliExpress but I'd like to know what other payment methods you have used along with the plugin.

    sorry if this questions are already answered, but these are my honest queries. also, if you please, share some success stories with the custom store from alidropship.

    thanks everybody.

    1. Build your own with the pre-made theme that comes with the plugin. Its not hard to customize.
    2. You can choose your own hosting. The theme that comes with the plugin is very fast.
    3. It does. Paypal and CreditCard getaway. You can use Stripe for that.

    1. Purchasing a custom store. The plugin has restrictions. We have a service if your interested.

    2. They don't optimize the store for speed, which raises many issues. You should always have a quick loading store above anything else, especially aesthetics.
    Hosting all depends on how much traffic your receiving. Even shared hosting can work if you're only advertising 5-10 products.

    3. I'm sure you can use Stripe as well, but you may want to ask them about that. You'll be good to go with Paypal and Stripe only.

    Well if you had the plugin you would know that there's a Stripe option in the payments config. So I wonder how you know the plugin has restrictions if you don't have it?

    1. If you have knowledge of building store then do it yourself otherwise you can buy it.

    2. I would recommend to you use your hosting. However, you can get from them too.

    3. You can use other payment method like stripe

    Thanks everybody! would you recommend a dedicated hosting for a single store? is it not a good idea to host other sites along with the store website in a single hosting provider?
