As you can see by reviewing the comparison chart – there are a ton of features and automations that AliDropship simply does not offer, and those missing features will cost you a LOT of time in terms of manual process, and ultimately cost you a lot of money in terms of lost productivity and/or hiring people to run those tasks for you.
Here are a few Key Automation Features that are crucial to running your business that they are just plain missing:
Monthly Fee vs One-Time Fee
So you might be asking, how is a cheap, one-time fee a negative thing or a “missing feature”?
Well, in the past, we’d have totally agreed with you that paying one-time for software was a big plus…
…until you needed support…
…or you needed them to stay in business.
For simple software that does one simple task, a one-time fee seems appropriate.
For complex software that runs your business, you should expect and should want to pay monthly.
How else can the company behind the software continue to fund the ongoing development of the software once the money from new one-time sales begins to dwindle?
At some point, the financial incentive to continue running, selling and improving the software could be gone…
…and that’s when they have to consider closing their doors, leaving you with a dead-in-the-water software that can no longer run your business.
That’s no bueno.
No one wants to spend their day manually solving Captchas on AliExpress. But that’s exactly what you’ll need to do when you start selling a lot of products using their plugin…
…or you’ll need to pay an employee to do that you.
Either way, it’s a lot of wasted time and money for something that should be fully automated.
…just like Dropified provides its users.
That’s why Dropified offers automated Captcha solving for our users, so you never have to manually enter a Captcha again, saving you hundreds of hours that are better spent growing your business, or thousands of dollars paying an employee to enter these.
AliDropship does NOT offer this powerful time, money and headache-saving automation.
U.S. Product Database
When it comes to working with AliExpress only as the AliDropship plugin or AliDropship Chrome extension does, your only option for shipping is through China.
Nowadays, customers are growing tired of having to wait weeks or even months for their orders to come in. Sure, some customers are okay with it, but most are used to quick 2 day shipping from companies like Amazon.
Because Dropified members can access filtering to identify vendors who are shipping from within the United States only, they have the ability to offer much faster delivery times.
Yes, Dropified gives it’s users the ability to source and fulfill orders within the United States, allowing for customers in the U.S. to receive their orders in just days. That’s a huge competitive advantage.
AliDropship does not have this quick-ship U.S. delivery option.
Why Dropified Is The Smart Choice
At the end of the day, when you review the Feature Comparison between Dropfied and AliDropship, it would take a lot more time and space here to highlight all the features we have to automate your business that they are just simply missing…
…and all of those missing features add up really quickly in terms of wasted time having to do everything manually…
…and all the money you are LOSING because you’re too busy getting bogged down in creating more jobs for yourself or your staff – instead of being focused on revenue generating activities.
So, if you’re serious about starting and growing your eCommerce business the right way from the beginning through automating almost every aspect of your drop shipping business…
…look no further than Dropified.
