Aliexpress Dropship for Magento 2: Online store owners don’t need to stock the products in their outlet or store. All products are instead stored in various warehouses throughout the region. When a customer orders, the product is shipped directly from the closest warehouse and not the store address.

Magento 2 Dropshipper extension allows the administrator to add Manage Multiple Warehouses and then assign them a product with the quantity. Magento 2 Dropship module allows multi-source retailers to manage their warehouse inventory easily.

With AliExpress Dropship integration for Magento 2, admins can import any product from AliExpress and start selling them in the Magento 2 store. The AliExpress Orders are automated so admins only need to click one button to place orders.
