Alibaba’s Dropshipping Centre is a new feature of the Alibaba e-commerce platform that allows you to sell products without handling shipping or inventory.
At the moment, it’s the only WordPress via woo-commerce that can connect to the platform.
You can create a store, select products from different suppliers, and add them to your store.
Then customers will be able to buy products directly from your store with the options above it.
Alibaba Dropshipping center helps you sell directly to your customer without any additional costs.
This new feature aims to help every business owner expand their business and reach millions of buyers worldwide.
The Alibaba dropshipping center offers a full range of affordable products for dropshipping business owners who use woo-commerce or do WordPress dropshipping.
Alibaba dropshipping Vs. Aliexpress Dropshipping
Aliexpress dropshipping can be more expensive than Alibaba dropshipping, and it depends on what you sell in Aliexpress vs. Alibaba.
Aliexpress sellers pay rent to Aliexpress but not Alibaba, and they have lower prices due to no overhead costs.
Also, there are frauds on Aliexpress that try to make good money with stolen products, while on Alibaba, you can’t do that even if you wanted to.
Just like Aliexpress dropshipping center, the newly launched Alibaba dropshipping center is here to help create a conducive environment for dropshipping businesses, more so those using the woo-commerce WordPress plugin.
Alibaba dropshipping center help reduce costs while ensuring high-quality service to the customer!
Alibaba Dropshipping Center brings you a wide range of products that you can use to start your own dropship business.
Alibaba Drop shipping is a supply chain and procurement system that allows sellers to ship products directly from manufacturers or factories to customers anywhere globally.
Traditionally it takes time for the products to get from China to the customers.
Also, due to the high transportation costs and high duties charged by Chinese Customs, shipping fees can be relatively high.
Through dropshipping, you don’t need to worry about that anymore! All you have to do is import your products into your Alibaba dropshipping center account connected to woo-commerce; you can then push the product to your WordPress site and start selling within seconds.
You can find everything on Alibaba dropshipping centers, from smartphones and clothing to toys and furniture—and it’s all available at a fraction of the retail price.
Whether you’re looking for a specific product or have an idea for a new line, starting an online business with dropshipping can be incredibly profitable for you.
