AliPlugin Pro vs Dropified

Who Is AliPlugin Pro?

AliPlugin is a much different product, in that it is an affiliate plugin. You can’t build an independent eCom store with it.

While AliPlugin lets you import products from AliExpress, your site will not be a marketplace.

Visitors that click on a product from your store are redirected to AliExpress, and that’s where they make a purchase, from AliExpress, not you.

As an affiliate setup, your profit is the commission for every purchase that happened on AliExpress with the visitors you sent them from your site.

Again, it’s tough to do a true comparison since the two products do really different things. So rather than dive deep into features, let’s look at the business models and see how they are different.

Affiliate Marketing Through AliExpress

As we described above, AliPlugin Pro uses an affiliate model to earn money. They help you set up a store that looks like what traditional eCommerce stores would look like, but in this case, instead of paying you when they buy, they pay AliExpress directly.

That means you never have to worry about order fulfillment, tracking, customer support, having a merchant account and accepting money, etc.

Outside of driving traffic, it’s pretty hands-off.

Sounds pretty good right?

Sure, as long as you like making tiny commissions on each sale compared to the large profits you could have been making on each sale had you been the seller.

We get it – if you were wanting to run a real Dropshipping business and you used something besides Dropified, you would be stuck having to do a lot of manual tasks that could really bog you down, and affiliate eCommerce marketing would sound really appealing.

However, with everything that Dropified automates, it’s almost like you’re running an affiliate business…

…except you’ll be making way more money, the customers will belong to you to serve and market to over and over (not a one-time commission that AliExpress gets to make money from over and over), and it will be your business and your growing assets. You call the shots and control your own destiny.

Dropship And Still Earn Commissions As An Affiliate With Dropified Instead

With Dropified’s AliExpress affiliate program integration – you can double dip, making you even more money as a drop shipper and as an AliExpress affiliate.

How?

Dropified allows you to take your AliExpress affiliate link and plug it into your Dropified dashboard so that when your customer orders from you and you place that order on AliExpress, Dropified will use your affiliate link to make the purchase, earning you the same AliExpress affiliate commissions.

That means you are actually making more commissions from AliExpress using Dropified than if you were using AliPlugin Pro – and you are also earning your profit from the sale itself.

You are more likely to make more in commissions by using Dropified than the AliPlugin Pro for several reasons:

  1. You are capturing the customer sales in the original store they landed on. In the AliPlugin model, you have to send them from your store to AliExpress, losing a lot of customers on the way. AliExpress is also not set up to be a solo eCom store that converts traditional eCom buyers – they are a massive mall of random products and typical buyers will leave quickly.
  2. When you bundle products and/or the customers keep adding items to their cart, they are buying more from you in one session. AliExpress is not set up to sell related items to maximize Order Value – they sell items in bulk or one at a time.
  3. When they buy from your Dropified store – they are now your customer to keep marketing and selling to, earning you more direct sales and earning you more commissions the more they repeat-buy from you.

With AliPlugin Pro, once you send a customer to AliExpress, that customer belongs to them and you’ll only get a small commission from them one time, losing out on any commissions in the future if they buy more later.

Why Dropified Is The Smart Choice

We could go on, but just the few points mentioned above are more than enough to demonstrate the massive financial differences between the two models.

So keep this in mind – if you find AliPlugin Pro users that have made a ton of money in commissions… multiply that number by 100 and then you’ll see what they should have earned from the same exact efforts. Well, that number is probably not accurate, but just know they should have and could have made way more money, and it’s not even close.

That means that while their users think they’re making a ton of money…

…they are actually losing and giving away more money in lost sales and commission for the same effort.

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 (so that it almost feels like you’re running an affiliate business)…

…look no further than Dropified.

Best app created when it comes to adding products and fulfilling orders. With the various product suppliers, it makes scaling my business a quick and easy process.

Dropified is the Backbone of my e-commerce business. I cannot even imagine how I could run a store without having this tool. Really, imagine uploading hundreds of product images, descriptions, titles, manually.
