Use this article as a quick guide on how to begin your dropshipping business using Dropified.
You need to have a store built on one of the platforms that are integrated with Dropified.
Keep in mind that Dropified doesn't help with setting up your stores. You'll need to purchase them separately through any of the store platforms that we support: Shopify, WooCommerce, CommerceHQ, and BigCommerce.
You can then connect your store to Dropified.
If you don't have a Dropified account yet, here's how you can register.
Once you've signed up, you need to install our Chrome extension in order for you to be able to import items to your store from our supported sites. Kindly refer to this article to understand what it is and where to get it.
You can then begin importing products from eBay, AliExpress, Alibaba, or other supported sites to your store using the Dropified Chrome extension.
The integration with Alibaba for product importing doesn't use the extension or work exactly the same as our other processes for AliExpress and eBay.
Here's how to set up Alibaba to gain access to their specific site for dropshipping products: How to Connect Your Alibaba account
Once your account is set up then here's Access Dropshipping Products.
Note: This is a new and different process from our other sites. You can only add Alibaba products from this page so be sure to have this link bookmarked.

If you prefer video training tutorials, we have several here:
Dropified doesn't have a direct relationship with the vendors of the products you will be connected with. So you'll still be bound by their regular terms such as signing up and paying for the regular price the suppliers sell the items for.
For a start, it is recommended to sign up for an eBay, Aliexpress, and Alibaba account so you'll be able to pay for the orders placed as they come in later on.
We do have a complete onboarding playbook that you can request from the Dropified Customer Success Team. You can simply reach out through live chat or email to get the link.
