    Hi guys,
    If I have more than 1 dropshipping stores, do you recommend to create different Aliexpress accounts for each store? What would be pros and cons?
    Thank you.

    I dont see the advantage to having more than one aliexpress account.... i myself have previously ran multiple stores using one account and did not encounter any issues

    Just guessing here... maybe if you scale up your stores and then you have a massive amount of clients, having two accounts would be a good way to organize. That would be the only pro I see of having two separate Aliexpress accounts.

    I was just wondering. Because Ali Account will sync up with Oberlo, right? And each store will have its own Oberlo. So I wondered if it would mess up order information if I just use 1 Ali account.

    It would be a lot more clustered, but you wouldn't need to manage two account at once.

    Is dropshiping profitable with low investment?

    If you can manage to get sales while you are within your initial, while small, budget - yes. In order for your investment, in any case, to be successful regarding ROI, you need to have either awareness and/or knowledge/practice in marketing. Gaining said knowlede/practice is costly.

    Very unlikely unless you have some amazing product and some viral sharing of it on social media.

    Don't see why someone would want that. They work with thousands of dropshippers who make insane amount of sales per day, so no problem at all if u are not doing anything shady.

    I suggest that it is easy to maintain one account. :)
