After successfully installing the chrome extension, the option also appears on the top right side of the browser.
Import Products to WooCommerce Store
First, we need to go to AliExpress to get multiple products; we can add any products we want to add. Let see the example below!
We need to add T-Shirts so first we are going to find the “t-shirt category” then click on any one t-shirt and then click on the Dropified extension icon.
After clicking on the extension, we can see that the t-shirt details appear on our screen where we can update the title, description, price, color, size, etc.
After adding the information, click on Send to WooCommerce button. It will take some time and allow us to view products via View in Dropified button.
After that, we will go directly to our Dropified Dashboard, where we can see all the information. We can also update the information like we are adding a description here.
After changing the description, click on Send to WooCommerce button. In case if we don’t want to add a product so there is another option Save for Later. We just need to click on it and that product will save into the directory.
Yes, the dropshipping business is really beneficial if we know how to configure our WooCommerce store, sell products on the Internet, or want to test a new range of products without investing too much at the beginning.
If, for example, our WooCommerce store is working well but the financial surface does not allow us to find new products quickly, before Black Friday or Christmas, dropshipping can be a good solution to garner a surplus of turnover.
