Dropshipping Exclusive Plugins
First, let’s take a look at some of the best dropshipping plugins for starting a dropshipping business. These plugins make the dropshipping store run on autopilot by improving the import and order fulfillment process.
1. AliDropship Woo
First in our list is the AliDropship Woo plugin. Made exclusively for AliExpress dropshippers, AliDropship automates the whole dropshipping process. You select a couple of products on AliExpress and this plugin will automatically add them to the store. It also provides a built-in photo editing software to remove watermarks and logos from the pictures of imported products. It is available for $89 and is only limited to one website per license.
WooDropship works similar to the AliDropship Woo plugin, i.e., importing products from AliExpress and adding them to your store. But where it lacks attractiveness is its inability to edit the photographs, and also to fulfill orders directly. Instead, it offers a copy-paste feature through which you can copy the details of the customer and paste them on manufacturer’s website, which in this case is AliExpress. It has 7-day trial available.
3. Dropified (Freemium)
Dropified (formerly known as Shopified) is another dropshipping plugin that imports products, manages them on your site, and fulfills them without your intervention. It is available for free for 500 products and 50 orders per month. Those who want to increase their production capacity or order fulfillment rate need to get the pro version of the plugin.
YouDroop is another plugin that’s highly popular among power dropshippers. The plugin allows them to import products from multiple manufacturers including AliExpress. It can be integrated with WooCommerce and Prestashop based shops at this time. It also fulfills customer orders automatically. But all this comes with a hefty price tag. YouDroop currently offers three packages starting from €59 per month.
DropshipMe is WordPress/WooCommerce plugin created to improve product sourcing in AliExpress dropshipping. The plugin is free and has 3 packages from $0 to $199. Here’s exactly what you will get:
- Handpicked 50,000+ best selling dropshipping products on AliExpress
- Professionally edited titles, descriptions and images
- A recommended price on each product
- You can add these products to your WooCommerce store in one click
Ecommerce Store Improvement Plugins
Beeketing is a multi-feature ecommerce store improvement plugin that tracks, engages, and converts visitors to the store. With its tracking ability, it tracks the time of purchase, products that were viewed, abandoned at to carts, and the whole customer journey. It engages customers through emails and provides them with deals (authorized by the store owners) to convert visitors. The plugin works with both, ecommerce and dropshipping stores.
2. Refer a Friend for WooCommerce
Refer a Friend for WooCommerce incentivizes shoppers to share their products with friends and get coupons for additional purchases.
The plugin is available for $47 for a single website. The plugin can be integrated with WooCommerce and automatically adjusts the price in accordance with the coupon discount. The lucrative reason is that with it, store owners can ask their visitors and shoppers to promote their stores for almost free instead of going for affiliate marketing.
3. Abandoned Cart
Almost 70 percent of your visitors are going to abandon the cart at some point. The Abandoned Cart plugin helps bring most of them back by using multiple retentions seeking strategies. It emails them from time to time reminding them of the products that they have added to the cart but never bought. It also analyzes abandoned cart ratio and compares that with recovered cart ratio. And, stops sending emails when the potential shoppers have made the purchase.
4. Live Sales Notifications
Almost 85 percent of visitors leave a shopping store without buying anything. The Live Sales Notifications plugin provides social proof that other people are also buying products from the store. It can also be framed to depict urgency that a certain product will go out of stock and therefore the visitors should buy it instantly.
5. Yotpo Reviews
Most shoppers will never add a review when they are content with the product they receive. With Yotpo Reviews you can easily ask them to leave a positive review. It lets you email the customers asking them about their experience with the store. The reviews are then added on each product display page in an orderly fashion. The plugin is free to use.
6. Pixel Caffeine
Majority of the ecommerce stores now use retargeting technique to market their products. Facebook has made retargeting even easier as the products start appearing on the wall of all those who have visited the store. But one problem with retargeting is that the promotions are shown to everyone. This is solved by Pixel Caffeine that helps customize product promotions for each visitor.
It is a completely free WooCommerce plugin and can work with both dropshipping and ecommerce stores.
