Overview

Back to top

AliExpress is an online retail service based in China that is owned by the Alibaba Group. Launched in 2010, it facilitates small businesses in China to offer products to international online buyers. AliExpress is often used by e-commerce stores that use a dropship business model.

Google Maps is a web mapping service developed by Google. It offers satellite imagery, aerial photography, street maps, real-time traffic conditions, and route planning. Google Maps also offers an API that allows maps to be embedded on third-party websites and offers a locator for businesses and other organizations in numerous countries around the world.

Dropship extension is the best dropshipping solution in e-Commerce to efficiently manage the orders, warehouses, and optimize all shipping functions. This module is an absolute way to start an online store without having the inventory stock and eliminates all complicated shipping steps the users used to follow and offers easy steps to fulfill orders with the dropshipping method. Instead, all the products are stored in different warehouses across the region. So when a customer places an order, the product is directly shipped from the nearest warehouse instead of the store. With the dropship module, the store owner does not need to keep goods in stock but instead transfer sales orders and shipment details to the warehouse manager, who then ships the goods directly to the customers.

 

Business Value

The dropship module is an extension for the store owners who want to create their own store and don't want to have a warehouse for the product. Using this module, whenever an order gets placed at the e-commerce shop, the shipment and order will be managed by the warehouse manager. Therefore, the order gets shipped directly to the customer, eliminating shipping hassle and saving time. The admin can set multiple shipping methods offered by the dropship add-on extension and during checkout, the buyer can choose those shipping methods as per their choice.

You can also start selling out AliExpress products within your store by importing the products from the AliExpress website. When these products get purchased at your store, the admin can place the order for these placed orders at AliExpress by just clicking a single button. The order placement process is automated and the admin just needs to fill in the payment information at the checkout for each of the orders.
