As you can see by reviewing the comparison chart – there are a ton of features and automations that SMAR7 Express 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 Features that are crucial to running your business that they are just plain missing:
Supplier Product Inventory Alerts
Our product inventory alerts feature tells you when your supplier is running low or is out of stock, so that you can make the necessary changes to your site and/or your promotions so that you’re not in danger of promoting sold out items. We also give you the option to hide that product until it’s back in stock. And yes, we have an alert for items that are now back in stock, so you can begin promoting them again if you choose.
You also don’t want to spend time and money promoting an item that’s been sold out through your supplier – not to mention the unhappy customers that purchased from you, only to hear that they can’t get their item, or that it’s back-ordered.
Supplier Product Price Alerts
We also have price change alerts feature that can automatically adjust your price up or down based on the margin you want to earn so you never have to worry about losing money if they raise the price too high.
The fact is, suppliers regularly change the prices they charge you, and if you don’t change your pricing accordingly, you could be either not making as much as you should, or worse – you could be losing money on each sale if they raise the price on you and you’re not checking the supplier prices every single day for every single product you sell.
If you only sell a few products each month, then this won’t be that big of a deal, but the moment you start selling dozens to hundreds and even thousands of products each day, then you’ll really want to automate your Captcha Solver process.
Seriously, who has time to say “No, I’m Not A Robot!” hundreds (or thousands) of times per day? Not us, and definitely not eCommerce business owners. That’s why the Captcha solver we’ve made available to all members is epic. Dropified members can also get a high-speed version, that makes life easier for multi-store owners.
Unfortunately, SMAR7 Express does NOT have a Captcha Solver, so you’ll need to be in front of your computer, proving you’re not a robot for each and every order you place on AliExpress. That’s valuable time you’re losing to grow your business, or wasted money paying someone to do this task for you.
Dropified has automated the process, saving you time and money, freeing you up to focus on what you really want to do.
Create Product Bundles
If you want customers to check out with more items, try creating product bundles that cost less than if the same items were purchased individually. By bundling products, you’re effectively increasing the perceived transaction value.
Unfortunately, SMAR7 Express does not let you bundle products together for better value to your customers and more sales for you.
We’re not sure if SMAR7 Express store owners are able to integrate “other” 3rd party paid apps that allow them to bundle, but even if they can pay more to add the bundling option…
…they’re still going to have to figure out how to handle the order and management of multiple suppliers and vendors across different product variations.
Meanwhile, Dropified customers, the savvy sellers they are, can be busy creating unique product bundles in just minutes from as many suppliers as they want, and with as many different variations as they want and handling order management in just a few simple clicks in just a few minutes or less by using our Bundling feature!
That’s a huge difference between us in time, ease of use, and money earned.
One other big drawback to using SMAR7 Express is the ability to get help when you need it, as they appear to only offer support by email that we can see.
At Dropified, we offer the same great customer service options to all of our customers, whether by email, support desk, Slack group or phone. Your success is our priority, and our team is here to help you succeed at any level.
Why Dropified Is The Smart Choice
At the end of the day, when you review the Feature Comparison between Dropfied and SMAR7 Express, it would take a lot more time and space here to highlight all of 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…
