In Ecommerce by Alex CooperLeave a Comment

Learn how to make a dropshipping website with WordPress in this full length tutorial. You can take a look at the site I make here.

To make the site we'll be using WordPress, Woocommerce and the AlipDropship plugin. With this combination, the site works pretty much the same way a shopify + Oberlo website works, including:

  • Easily add products from Aliexpress
  • Adjust the pricing with your markup
  • Use any Woocommerce theme you like
  • Take payment using Paypal, Stripe or any of the other many payment gateways available for Woocommerce
  • Easily fulfil orders on AliExpress with the click of the button and much more!
