DropshipMe & AliDropship are two WordPress dropshipping plugins. They complement each other but are not competing. This post will compare DropshipMe and AliDropship, and show how they interact.
Both plugins are compatible with WordPress only and can be used to source products from AliExpress.com. Even better, both plugins were developed by the same company. They work however very differently. Below is how I explain it.
DropshipMe: What’s it all about?
Dropship.me WordPress plugin was created by the AliDropship module. This plugin makes it easy to import AliExpress.com products into your dropshipping store.
This plugin will save you tons of time as you don’t have to spend your time researching products or editing product descriptions.
AliDropship has hand-picked and edited the top 50,000 drop shipping products on AliExpress.
This is what it means for your company:
- No longer do you need to conduct product research by yourself
- It doesn’t take much time to edit images or describe.
- It is possible to sell products right away
- Conversions can be increased and repeat sales can be made
- Your customers will have a better shopping experience
- Reduce disputes with select suppliers
DropshipMe is already installed on my AliDropship store. I am very happy with the features. You can import 50 products using the version of DropshipMe. Later upgrades are possible.
You can quickly and easily find the best AliExpress products in any niche.
This plugin’s primary purpose is to make it easy to search for the top-selling products on AliExpress.com. This plugin takes the hassle out of product research.
Over 50,000 products have been manually edited. These products are proven to be reliable and have been sold by the best qualified suppliers.
Both product images and descriptions can be edited already. Additional features include:
- One-click import and quick product search
- Real customer reviews can be imported
- Professionally edited product descriptions and titles
I was in the process adding products to my store and this plugin arrived just in time.
It’s now much easier than spending a lot of time looking through all the AliExpress products. I use the plugin to do a quick search for items that are related to my niche.
This plugin is very fast. Results are returned in seconds. After I have found the item I’m interested in, I can click the import button to get more information or click “view details”.
You’ll see the screen below when you click on details. The screen will show you the supplier price (in orange), your recommended price and your profit.
It will also inform you how many pieces there are, as well as other pertinent information like capacity, sizes, etc.
You will also find three tabs that contain information about the product, including shipping details, reviews, and a description. After I’m satisfied with the item I click import to add it to my shop.
It’s so easy.
DropshipMe: What do you need to know? What is the Ideal User?
Dropship.Me plugin requires a WordPress site. Anyone who has a dropshipping shop using either the AliDropship plugin or WordPress plugin is an ideal user.
These are the main requirements for Dropship.Me.
These are the requirements to use DropshipMe
- Domain name
- WordPress installed on your web host provider
- Install AliDropship plugin or WooCommerce
Keep these things in mind
Before installing the plugin, here are some other things to consider:
- It doesn’t work with the WordPress Multisite Network
- It doesn’t work with localhosts
- It will not work with subdomains and subfolders
What is the AliDropship plugin?
Keep in mind that AliDropship and DropshipMe do not perform the same thing.
Dropship.Me is all about inventory. The AliDropship plugin provides the tools you need to manage your dropshipping business.
AliDropship turns your WordPress installation in to a fully-featured AliExpress dropshipping company.
AliDropship allows you to dropship and sell products through AliExpress.com. DropshipMe allows you to import unlimited products with AliDropship. However, it makes it easier to locate the most popular products.
This is why the two plugins are so compatible.

Dropshipping stores that use proprietary dropshipping software are not exempt from this rule.
