    Yes, you can. Not much unless you scale 10+ websites.

    Half of my websites are with aliplugin, the others are with alidropship - this is where you start to make money.

    Don't forget that you need blog on each website.

    Plus both plugins are similar but note that many functions are cut in aliplugin (for example it says you can import reviews directly from AliExpress, well you cant - you can only do it in the dropship plugin)

    In terms of functionality, AliDropship is king.

    Let me say it like this. If you have time make AliDropship 1-2 sites at the beginning and scale if u feel comfortable, otherwise stick with bulk aliplugins - make 1 each week, until u get 10+, put 1 new article each week in every site and you are good to go

    What I noticed is that I have very nice conversions from instagram and pinterest on every site - near 25%.

    So if you can, buy massplanner for 10$ version if u go with dropship or for 20$ if u go with aliplugin.

    Dont forget that aliexpress saves the cookies until the session ends now and its not 30 days. So basicly when you redirect the customer to aliexpress with aliplugin he may or may not buy something but the chances that he will return at your site are lower.

    Either way put free cloudflare SSL certificates on every site you make - it helps especially for Aliplugin and its must for serious sites like alidropship

    Probably you are asking what is the profit of such websites.

    With my AliPlugin websites I make between 2-15$ a day each..

    With my best Dropship website I make between 70-300$ a day (not revenue but profit)

    Won't say a lot but 1500-2000.

    But Lets not forget that AliDropship isnt the only way to make successful dropship business. There are alternatives.

    Is it possible to make website that will have something like 1.000.000 products in its database? I don't want to make something like "RAM memory store" and sell only RAM memories. I want to make copy of aliexpress website. I can write PHP function that will parse elements from aliexrpress pages.
    I already made this for lyrics websites and once I copy 1.500.000 lyrics.

    EDIT
    Can I put adsense on this website??? :)

    EDIT2
    I just tested. I can parse aliexpress but there is a problem. I can only get MAIN photo of product, product name and "Item specifics". the problem is I can not get Product Description

    Take a look. Original URL
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2-P...eo-KVM-Switch-Kit-With-2-KVM/32564729786.html

    Results I get when parse

    Can you tell a little bit what is your strategy on Instagram and Pitnerest? You have just white hat profiles of your shops or you're doing some spam activities, follow/unfollowe etc. ?

    Guys we are here not to everybody do the same thing - we are here to make twist. So if there is 1500-2000 aliexpress wordpress plugin websites then it is obvious that I must do something diferently

    I've been seeing some creative integrations of Aliexpress, especially into tools, hardware and ....torrent sites..... In fact not everyone is doing the same. I found one method that I wanna try. Not sharing it for now, maybe later......but I found that method investigating a Aliexpress affiliate ;)

    Where does your traffic come from? All from instagram and pinterest?

    I have always wondered why alidropshipping is profitable: if it takes them 30-60 days to receive the product (via the free AliE Standard or China airmail) why do they bother to order it from you instead of getting it from amazon or ebay for a few bucks more with 1-2 day delivery?

    Ok guys. You have to be creative. The orders from Ali express are coming for 1-3 weeks max (I haven't seen longer delivery) with ePacket which costs between free and 3-4$ depends on the location.

    However, in all my stores I offer completely FREE WORLDWIDE shipping - I pay for the ePacket.

    In all my niches I work only with top suppliers and I have great communication with all of them.

    For most of them they have made free logo of my "brand" on the packages which looks even more professional. Also they don't include any promo materials or cards in the packages.

    I repeat - I offer completly free shipping to 190+ countries and the max delivery time was 3 weeks and most of the time the package comes for 1-2 weeks.

    Amazon CANNOT deliver any product for 1-2 days WORLDWIDE - I have ordered few PC parts from AMAZON and they came for 35 days.

    So basiclty from my point of view the facts are: I offer completly free worldwide shipping on all products, amazon doesnt; I offer 1-3 weeks delivery time, amazon may take less ( in 5-7 contries) but also may take longer in 150+ countries; I have real pictures in my review of all my prodcuts from costumers, amazon doesnt have on all products; I offer 60 days money back guarantee + keep the item if its not the same; My stores are niche specific and are not general stores like amazon/aliexpress. I can think of many more advantages.

    My traffic comes mainly from google but its conversion rate is 10-15%, while in instagram and pinterest I have 25%

    I have few partners in instagram with 500k+ followers, which takes 10% of the product's end price to shout for me. For each of them I have made different coupon codes which they promote in their shouts and everytime a customer buys something from instagram most of them use these codes and they tell me which partner should receive the 10%. i dont pay for shouts - I offer em percentage of my profit. I change the codes every week.

    So lets say a product that costs 5$ in AliExpress costs 20$ in my site. From a single shout , 500 customers come in my website and 125 of them buy something (since my conversion is 25%). So customer with 5%-10% coupon comes and buys this product. So lets make the math. 10% of 20$ are 2$, so -2$ for my costumer, -2$ for my partner, -in the worst case 4$ for ePacket, -5$ to buy the product from aliexpress = 20-13 = 7$ profit, ofcourse the epacket usually is 1-2$ not 4, but this is the worst case and the best case is epacket is free and I get profit 11$ so the profit of 20$ item with this method is 7-11$.

    Example: 1 shout = 500 leads = 125 orders = 125 x 0.8 (minimum item cost is 8$ in my stores) or 125 x 40 (maximum item cost is 450$ in my stores) = 100$ - 5000$ profit for the person that shouts for me. Ofcourse simetimes his profit is 20-50$, sometimes its 150$+ per shout.

    Your store must be professional and look even more professional so both sides can have positive feedback from customers ("hey that instagram account pointed me to one awesome store yesterday and offered 10% discount for it, wanna see it") - if you have positive experience from a store: 1st u will return, 2nd u will take special attention to this instagram profile coz it may offer more benefits for you.

    This way:
    The ppl that shout for me can have stable passive income (as he can shout as many times as he want - usually 1-3 times a week)
    I don't pay for shouts that don't convert - aka its in both sides interest not to have fake followers.

    Nope. It's more creative than that. I still haven't tested it though but it seems like a pretty classic and legit (nobody gets scammed) black hat technique.

    Nice man, thank you for the in-depth analysis. I might have an abandoned site (due to losing interest in the topic) perfectly suitable for this dropshipping method. Maybe I'll reboot it and try monetizing this way..

    Hi!

    You sound like you know just what you're doing - and what you're doing is just what I am starting to do with my girlfriend...

    Can we connect somewhere to discuss?

    Thank you so much!
