Want to start a dropshipping store built on WordPress? If so, you’re going to want one of these WooCommerce dropshipping plugins to help make it easier to source dropshipping products and handle order fulfillment.
In this post, I’ve collected your best options, divided into two different categories.
First, I’ll cover some WordPress AliExpress dropshipping plugins. These plugins will help you connect your WooCommerce store to the popular AliExpress marketplace and dropship products that way. If that’s not your plan, I’ll also cover two plugins that let you work with any supplier, including an option to automatically generate purchase lists and packing slips and send them to suppliers.
Let’s get started so that you can get dropshipping!
Six WooCommerce AliExpress Dropshipping Plugins
These AliExpress dropshipping plugins are focused on helping you connect WooCommerce to AliExpress to automatically:
- Import products
- Sync prices/inventory
- Fulfill orders
If you’re specifically planning to use AliExpress to build your dropshipping empire, you’ll want an AliExpress dropshipping plugin.
AliDropship is a popular AliExpress dropshipping plugin. It uses a more traditional one-time billing. So the upfront cost will be a little higher, but you benefit because you don’t need to keep paying a monthly fee.
It does a lot of the same things as WooDropship. It can:
- Import products from AliExpress with one click
- Control pricing to guarantee profit margins
- Automatically update product information to keep everything in sync
- Manage order fulfillment automatically
- Edit images from your WordPress admin area
AliDropship can work by itself (that is, with just a vanilla WordPress install), but I’d recommend choosing the WooCommerce version so that you can benefit from all the other WooCommerce plugins and functionality.
The plugin alone costs $89. But like WooDropship, you can also pay extra for a pre-built store, which starts at $299.
Spocket is the leading dropshipping marketplace for US and EU suppliers. It is based on a monthly or annual subscription model.
Spocket’s best features are:
- Carefully vetted suppliers to ensure consistency and quality
- Branded invoicing
- World-class 24/7 customer support
- Fast shipping and reliability
If you’re looking for products closer to your customers, Spocket is a no-brainer. They recently launched Spocket Academy and have a growing Facebook group of almost 30,000 dropshippers sharing the best tips and tricks for success.
WooDropship is a popular AliExpress dropshipping plugin that operates on monthly billing, after a 7-day free trial.
In return for that monthly billing, you get a ton of helpful features like:
- Automatic order fulfillment to AliExpress vendors.
- Daily product syncing to make sure inventory/prices are accurate.
- In-app image editing to fix any issues with AliExpress product images.
The plugin also has a dedicated Chrome extension that lets you easily import products from the AliExpress website to your store. This extension also lets you filter out only products that offer an ePacket delivery option.
You can try it out for free with that 7-day trial. After that, the prices start at $14.99 per month and depend on how many products you import and how many orders you fulfill.
Alternatively, you can pay $99 for a full store (including setup), complete with 1 year of hosting and one month free of the WooDropship Pro service.
With it, you can easily import AliExpress products to your WooCommerce store, including a Chrome extension to help you source products.
Then, Dropified can handle order fulfillment for you. It also makes sure your product details are correct by automatically syncing:
- Price changes
- Product availability
You also get in-app photo editing, as well as support for 30+ different vendors in case you want to wander outside the AliExpress ecosystem.
You can get started with a 14-day free trial. After that, plans start at $39 per month (billed annually) or $47 per month (billed monthly).
So yeah – not the cheapest option, but it might be the right option if you want to do more than just AliExpress.
Using a Chrome or Firefox extension, Ezusy helps you import AliExpress products to your WooCommerce store.
You can also set up pricing rules to ensure your desired margins, and Ezusy will handle product pricing and inventory updates to make sure that everything is always in sync.
Once you get some orders, Ezusy will automatically handle order fulfillment for you.
One of the most unique things about Ezusy is that it includes a free plan. This free plan lacks the automatic features (syncing/order fulfillment), but it’s a good way to test out all the other features.
After that, paid plans are still affordable starting at just $9.90 per month depending on how many products you need to import and orders you need to fulfill.
DropshipMe isn’t as detailed as the other plugins on this list because it doesn’t deal with the fulfillment/syncing parts of running an AliExpress dropshipping store.
What it does do, though, is help you source quality AliExpress products from a curated collection of ~45,000+ products. You can then import those products, along with their reviews, into your WooCommerce store.
DropshipMe doesn’t handle order fulfillment or syncing by itself. But it’s actually from the same developer as the AliDropship plugin that you saw earlier and the two are built to integrate well together.
You can import up to 50 products for free. After that, you’ll need to pay for additional imports. There are no ongoing fees – you’re basically paying for credits to import more products from the curated selection.

Two General WooCommerce Dropshipping Plugins
Whereas the previous plugins were all specifically focused on AliExpress, these two plugins are more generally focused on the concept of working with different dropshipping suppliers.
If you’re planning to use a supplier outside the AliExpress ecosystem, these WooCommerce dropshipping plugins will make your life easier.
7. WooCommerce Dropshipping Suppliers Pro
As the name suggests, WooCommerce Dropshipping Suppliers Pro is all about helping you manage different dropshipping suppliers at your WooCommerce store.
Beyond letting you add a list of suppliers and assign different products to each supplier, you can also automatically send email notifications and packing slips to suppliers when someone purchases a relevant item.
To help you manage inventory, you can also import products and stock statuses via CSV.
Finally, with the separate shipping service integrations (an extra purchase), you can even calculate different shipping rates depending on which supplier a shopper is purchasing from. If a shopper is purchasing items from multiple different suppliers, you can give them a unique shipping choice for each supplier (kind of like how Amazon handles things when you purchase from multiple third-party suppliers).
WooCommerce Dropshipping Suppliers Pro starts at $59 for use on a single site.
8. WooCommerce Dropshipping
WooCommerce Dropshipping is a third-party plugin listed at the official WooCommerce extension store that also helps you automate order fulfillment with non-AliExpress suppliers.
Like WooCommerce Dropshipping Suppliers Pro, it lets you automatically send order notification emails to your suppliers, including a PDF packing slip and a list of which products were ordered.
You can also import product inventory from a CSV if your supplier provides one.
One thing this plugin does not seem to let you do, though, is to calculate different shipping rates for individual suppliers. Keep that in mind before making your decision.
WooCommerce Dropshipping starts at $49 for use on a single site, so it’s a little bit cheaper than WooCommerce Dropshipping Suppliers Pro if you don’t mind the shipping rates.
