How To Buy A Dropshipping Store Ready To Welcome Customers From Day 1 (VIDEO)

By Olga L.

When you are planning to buy a dropshipping store, you have so many questions about this purchase! You wonder what your dropshipping store will look like, what it will sell, how much it will cost, what business potential it will have, and so on.

The dropshipping business model is quite popular among beginner entrepreneurs because it doesn’t require a lot of investments. At the same time, stores that sell dropshipping products can make considerable profits.

If you don’t want to create a website on your own, you can find an ecommerce business for sale. However, when you buy an online business from someone else, your choice is limited. So, if you want to buy a dropshipping store made according to your own design, consider purchasing a Custom Store from AliDropship.

In the video below, we’re answering the most common questions about a dropshipping store purchase. So, let’s watch and review it!

Let’s sum it up now!

Ordering an AliDropship Custom Store is a quick and affordable way to buy a dropshipping website

Shall we go over its benefits once again?

  • You only make a one-time payment to get the store

That’s right! You pay a fixed sum of money ($299, $499 or $899, depending on your package), and get a ready amazing store with free lifelong support. The only recurring payments are the ones you’ll be making to your domain & hosting provider (to keep your site operational and visible on the Internet), but AliDropship itself charges no extra fees for the right to use your Custom store.

  • The store is developed for you exclusively

A whole team of designers, programmers, digital marketing specialists, customer support managers and other experts works on your order to deliver a good-looking, competitive and profitable business. You can monitor the process and suggest amendments if necessary.

  • All the major ecommerce tasks are done for you

The store you get is specifically made for you from scratch. The team does everything from the technical website setup to importing the best selling AliExpress products on your site. Surely, you’ll be happy to delegate these time-consuming tasks to the real pros!

You can choose between different options and buy a dropshipping store package that is best for your needs

AliDropship Custom Stores come in 3 different packages, so you can pick the one you like more.

Even the most affordable Basic package ($299) lets you get a fully functional online store ready to accept payments and process orders, so you can safely start with this option. No matter what package you choose, you’ll be able to start selling right after we deliver the dropshipping store to you!

As a result, you get a self-owned dropshipping business with an unlimited growth potential

After we complete the dropshipping store development, you become an independent owner of the business. It fully belongs to you, so we don’t oblige you to run it in some particular way, or to make a specific volume of profit, or to have a certain turnover, etc.

We gladly share our own tips and recommendations, but we never limit you in your activities. You’re your own boss!

This is why the financial potential of your newborn ecommerce business is so promising. Among dozens of thousands of clients who bought our dropshipping stores, there are numerous people who agreed to tell publicly about their experience, and even to show their stores’ performance numbers. You can read these stories here.

Buying a dropshipping store from AliDropship: FAQ

Q: Do I have to buy the AliDropship plugin before ordering a Custom Store?

A: No, all the Custom Store packages already include the AliDropship plugin.

Q: What’s the difference between the packages you’re offering?

A: The Custom Store packages have a different number of initial products and social media accounts we make for your business and different levels of search engine optimization. The Ultimate Package also comes with a promo video and a social media promotion tool.

Q: What if I want more pre-edited products in my Custom Store?

Plus, these products are already stored in the US Fulfillment Center. Therefore, they will reach your US buyer in 1-3 business days! You are welcome to read more about the Sellvia offering here.

A: Yes, you can. There’s no limit on the number of products you can import to dropshipping websites made with the AliDropship plugin.

Q: How long does it take to create a Custom Store?

A: Depending on what package you choose (and, therefore, the amount of work), creating a Custom Store will take from 10 to 25 business days.

Judging by the success stories of our clients, you can earn enough with dropshipping even if you don’t have an elite education or a strong professional background. Buying a dropshipping store, you get an opportunity to secure a better future for yourself and your family. What would you say about this offer?

Delivery time to different country when customers make order is where am confused. Off cause if someone should make order from my site, and he sees the store to be from the country where he is doing purchasing from same as where he is residing, and delivery is displaying 15-20 days. Do you think the customer will be happy or relax to continue the that purchase or refer friends to buy from my store?

Olga L. 4 years ago

Hi, thank you for your question!

We understand your concern about shipping time – here’s what you can do about it:

– On your product pages, write the estimated delivery time clearly so it doesn’t come as a surprise at the checkout page.
– Also, write that the reason for this delivery time is that the products are kept in warehouses in China (there’s nothing suspicious about it as lots of major global manufacturers have their production facilities and warehouses in China).
– See if you can shorten the delivery time: in the AliExpress search field, there is a ‘Ship From’ filter. Click on it: you will see what are the other countries where these AliExpress products are also kept in stock. Maybe, there is a country that is closer to your target audience, so the seller will be able to send the order quicker.
– Choose the products that have the ePacket shipping option: on average, it allows delivery in 7-15 days. You can read more about it here:

Will your customers be ready to wait for the delivery and recommend your store to others?
Yes! They will be OK with it IF:

– Your products are rare in their country and these people can’t source them from anywhere else
– The prices are lower than in other stores offering a quicker shipping
– You explain the shipping terms to them clearly and don’t promise them a 1-2 days delivery

Hi i think i might be interested in getting a custom store. I have some questions.
What if I had started a store when i bought the plugin do i just put that a aside ?
I already have a a URL bought from go daddy can i use that or not on the custom store.
Now i see the $299 50 products can i add more as time goes by and i learn more about dropshipping?

wayne wright 4 years ago

Sorry I meant “I see the $299 store has only 50 products”

Olga L. 4 years ago

Hi, thank you for your question!

If you have BOTH the plugin AND a store, you can make and run 2 different stores. It will be interesting for you as you can make them in different niches and use different strategies on them to see what works better.
By the way: if your plugin is not activated (installed on a domain) yet, you can simply upgrade it to a custom store! To do it, copy your license key and paste it into the Coupon code field when buying a store. You will get a discount on a custom store equal to the price you paid for the plugin.

When you order a custom store, just tell your personal manager about the domain you’ve already bought: they will take a look at it and tell if it goes well with your store niche and name.

As a store owner, you are free to add as many AliExpress products as you want to your store. You will just need to follow these instructions:

Best of luck with your upcoming venture!

Hi.i want to purchase the custom package for 899$ with the offer going on now but I want to ask can I sell in my websites other items from other places like Alibaba ?and also the custome comes with the plug in right?

Olga L. 3 years ago

Hi, thank you for your choice!

Yes, custom store already goes with the plugin installed. The plugin connects to AliExpress and automates the majority of business processes (products updating, orders processing, etc.), so of course, it’s more convenient for you to use AliExpress products for your store offer.

However, you can add your own products to your store, too – kindly read more about it here:
