October 9, 2017
"What's the difference between AliExpress and Dropwow?" This is a pretty popular question we get from online stores. So, here is our vision how dropshipping marketplace Dropwow differs from AliExpress.

If you consider I'm not fair or keep something back, please express your opinion right under this post. Let's begin.

Dropshipping from AliExpress is Good

AliExpress is a big and known platform that connects Chinese vendors with dropshipping online stores. Popularity and a huge range of products with different costs are key features which attract buyers all over the world.

However, each medal has another side and AliExpress and not an exclusion. If you're an experienced buyer, you have already faced with some cases and know the marketplace from different perspectives. And as there were no alternatives with mostly Chinese vendors till now, in addition, there are instruments like an extension for importing, for instance, you may not just "live" with that but make a really good business.
Dropshipping from Dropwow is perfect
Dropwow marketplace is a great alternative to AliExpress for those of you who run dropshipping business or search for websites like AliExpress for some reason. As AliExpress is made primarily and mainly for B2C (business to consumer) and not B2B (business to business) that's why dropshipping online stores have to either spend much time on some manual work or pay for automation and virtual assistance to save time.

You may think to say Dropwow is "perfect" for dropshipping is too much, however, let's recall the biggest "pains" of you, online store owners:
  1. Forwarding orders to suppliers
  2. Importing items from a marketplace to an online store
  3. Searching for the best products of the most trustworthy vendors
  4. Dealing with Chinese suppliers in case of refund and return

Believe it or not, these and some other troubles are already solved by Dropwow. The marketplace provides full automation. What is also important is that the marketplace is totally free.
