Welcome to my review of Dropified, a very popular dropshipping automation app that allows you to import products from AliExpres (and other sources) straight into your online store.
Dropified has been on the market for a few years now and the people behind it have continuously strived to improve the app. It has gone through a few updates and my review reflects the latest updates that have been made in 2020.
Dropshipping is becoming an increasingly popular way for entrepreneurs to start an online business. With little start-up costs and no need to stock inventory or worry about delivery charges, you can see why people are starting to prefer this eCommerce fulfilment method.
The rise in popularity of dropshipping has led to the development of several apps that automates a lot of the tasks required in a dropshipping business. One of those apps is Dropified (formerly Shopified), today I will review the Dropified app and see if it really lives up to all the hype.
I have reviewed a couple of other similar apps, including AliDropship, Oberlo, Modalyst uDroppy and Zendrop.
Before I carry on with this review of Dropified, I would like to answer a few questions that I keep getting asked about the Dropified dropshipping app.
What Is Dropified?
Dropified is an online dropshipping app that will help eCommerce entrepreneurs aut0mate many aspects of a dropshipping business. From importing products from multiple marketplaces and setting automatic pricing rule to fulfilling and tracking orders, Dropified provides you the tools you need to source and sell products for your dropshipping business.
Is Dropified better than Oberlo?
There is no simple answer here, some people will prefer Oberlo, while others enjoy working with Dropified. Although, Dropified has advantages in several areas like, giving you access to more suppliers and not just AliExpress, which is what you get with Oberlo. Many of the automation features are very similar, although Oberlo does have a free plan that allows you to import and fulfil a certain number of products a month which is perfect for people who are on a tight budget and it has a superior range of tools and training material that are free to use.
Is Dropified Worth it?
This is something you can only answer because at the end of the day, it will only be worth it if your business is successful. The software does what it says and will help you source products and run your store more efficiently. However, only you can make it a success and that is by having a proper plan in place and not giving up on the first sign of hardship or failure.
I try and update my reviews regularly, Dropified has made a few changes to their platform, like the pricing structure, more suppliers added and discontinuing their private label program.
One of the most popular platforms that people use to find products and suppliers for their dropshipping business is Aliexpress.
Aliexpress has a massive database of products along with their suppliers/manufacturers,however, it can be a little frustrating to manually import these products into your store.
This is where Dropified comes in, with its range of automation features like 1-click import and 1- click order, running a dropshipping business becomes less time-consuming and more profitable.
Dropified is a web-based app, so there is nothing to download and it comes with a Chrome extension that allows you to easily find and import products from AliExpress into your store.
Dropified Review – Chrome Extension
As you can see from the image, the Chrome extension has many features, some of these include;
Import products – You can import products from Aliexpress straight into your Shopify store or into the Dropified web-app.
Enable ePacket Filter – This will highlight products that have ePacket delivery option
Hide Products Without ePacket – All the products that do not have ePacket delivery option will be hidden.
Processing Time – The Chrome extension will highlight how long the item will take to be delivered.
The Chrome extension will also allow you to edit the product description, insert tags for clearer product identification and import all the images related to that product. To manually do all this stuff will take around 15 minutes per product, with the Chrome extension, everything is completed in a couple of minutes.
These features alone will save you lots of time,it will help eliminate mistakes being made and you will have more time to grow your store.
One other useful feature of the Chrome extension is the order auditing tool. This tool allows you to audit your orders to see if there are any issues that need to be corrected.
What the audit tool does is the following;
- Shows you any duplicate orders
- Shows you any orders that have been made in Aliexpress but not in the Dropified app
- Shows you orders with the wrong address.
The web-app is where you will realise the true awesomeness of this app, it has a clean interface and is very easy to navigate.
The Dropified app comes with some awesome features, the main ones being importing products and fulfilling orders automatically.
You have four options to fulfil orders, however, the easiest and less time-consuming option is the option number three.
- Manual Order – If you are only getting a couple of orders a day.
- Step by Step Order – Takes you through the process
- Auto Order – The app does everything including what shipping method to use
- Auto Order, Choose Shipping – Same as above but you choose the shipping method.
As well as 1-click ordering capability, the web-app also comes with several other features that will help in the day to day running of a dropshipping business.
Some of these features include;
- Pricing automation – Set pricing rules for all the products you sell, and the app will update the prices accordingly.
- Price change notifications – Every time one of your suppliers changes their pricing,you will be notified so you can make the necessary changes and stay profitable.
- Out of stock notification – You will get an alert whenever a product is out of stock. This will eliminate the risk of customers ordering out of stock products and give you time to find another supplier or remove the item from your store.
- Shipment tracking – You will receive a custom tracking number as soon as an order is fulfilled. Dropified will also alert your customer about their order along with the tracking number.
- US dropship database – Aliexpress has a list of dropshipping suppliers that are based in the US. Dropified allows you to find these suppliers with ease and source products from within the US that will result in much faster delivery time.
One thing you may notice from the video is that the app is still called Shopified instead of its new name which is Dropified, however, the funtions of the app remain the same.
There are a host of other features that come with this app, some I believe are unnecessary but others can be helpful although not essential to run a dropshipping business.
Where Dropified separates itself from Oberlo and Alidropship is having more than one platform that you can use to import products into your store.
With Oberlo and Alidroship, you can only use Aliexpress, however with Dropified, there are over 40 online stores that you can import products from to start a dropshipping business.
Some of these stores include the following
- Amazon (.com.co.uk)
- eBay (.com.co.uk)
- Wholesale central
And many more.
However, I must add, the automation features that are available with Aliexpress cannot be used with the other online retailers.
So, even though it may seem like a good feature, I personally do not think many people will be using it because the other online retailers will already be selling products at competitive prices, so at best your profit margins will be razor thin.
They do provide basic training on how to use the software but when compared to the likes of AliDropship and Oberlo, the material provided by Dropified is disappointing. This is an area they could definitely improve by providing their users with better guides on subjects related to eCommerce and dropshipping.
Dropified Pricing Plans
They have recently updated their pricing plans and now offer three options.
Dropified eCommerce Supported Platforms
When Dropified was released a few years ago, it only worked with Shopify (hence it was called Shopified app), however, they have since upgraded the app to work with Commerce HQ, WooCommerce and BigCommerce stores.
Dropified is an impressive dropshipping app with a host of features that will make it easier to run a dropshipping business.
With features like 1-click order, pricing automation rules and automatic inventory updates, it’s easy to see this app has become very popular amongst eCommerce dropshippers.
Dropified is a viable alternative to AliDropship , Spocket, Zendrop and Oberlo, they provide good support and also provide some decent training. Click on the button below and give it a try with its 14-day free trial.
Have you used Dropified? How was your experience? I would love to hear your thoughts on this app and if you agree with my review.

Interesting review. I’ve read quite a bit about dropshipping, years ago, but it never seemed like something I’d be able to manage on my own. Dropified looks like it makes life a lot simpler if you’re shipping. It actually might be something to look int at this point. Thank you very much for sharing the review.
Thanks for your comment,I do believe dropshipping along with affiliate marketing are two of the best online business models for new entrepreneurs. Good luck with your business plans.
I just received info on challenge.dropified.com a 60-day challenge for newbies. Found your site to see if this was a scam, an appreciated your review. I think I may try the 60 day challenge as it appears to have all the components that your noted Dropified was missing.
I was looking for information on Dropified and thanks a lot for the detailed and in-depth review post.
I am amazed at the helpful features, for sure Dropified will save us a lot of time and hassle. For any business, automation is a must to save time, trouble, effort, energy and work.
After reading your review I strongly believe Dropified is a must have tool for everyone who does Dropshipping. The video you embedded is very helpful and insightful. Dropified 60-Day Challenge and 14-day free trial are just like icing on the cake. I notice that Dropified can also import from other sources and not rely on AliExpress, however, the automation features are not included, is there a dropshipping app that has suppliers from the EU and USA in their database and also comes with the automation features?
Thanks for your comment, yes Dropified is a fantastic app and the 60-day challenge is exceptional, I would sign up for the free trial just for that. As for your question about a dropshipping app with suppliers from the EU or USA, I highly suggest you check out Spocket, its very similar to Dropified but they list suppliers form the countries you mentioned.
All the best.
Yup, I love Dropified, this is a very thorough review, they have recently started to make a lot of upgrades to the software and training. I don’t know if its better than Oberlo but it is definitely a very good alternative. The only downside is that Oberlo is cheaper and hence people may opt for that option. I do think that AliDropship is the better option for WordPress, just a personal opinion.
Thanks for your comment, yes Dropified have been updating a lot of their training and even the software has gone through a lot of changes. I do agree that AliDropship is the better alternative for WordPress.
All the best
This is a great and informative post about the Dropified, I am currently in the mood to purchase some of the tools like Alidropship so this review is very useful to me. It is great they offer 14 days free trial, this is something, which other tools does not. So I will definitely think about using the 14 days and decide afterwards. Originally I liked Alidropship more than any other apps, but this 14 days trial probably makes Dropified the one I will choose eventually. Apart from Oberlo and AliDropship, are there any other dropshipping apps you would recommend?
Thanks for your comment, there are many apps that are similar to the ones you mentioned, the one you should look into as a viable alternative is Spocket, read my review of it here.
All the best
A really thorough review of Dropified, I have been interested in trying this app but have never come round to it. It has really gone through a lot of changes since the last time I read a review of it, I really like that it gives you more options to source products from other than just AliExpress and I may just try it out just to take the 60-day challenge which sounds awesome.
Thanks for your comment, yes, if you haven’t been following the evolution of the Dropified app over the past year, you are missing out. They have carried out some major upgrades and the 60-day challenge is amazing, on its own, they can actually this training for quite a large sum of money, totally worth it.
All the best.
I’ve heard a little bit about drop shipping and I always appreciate a good review. Your comparison of Dropified with Oberlo and Alidropship is helpful. I like that Dropified is a web-based app and that there is nothing to download. Product importation does sound seamless. The Chrome extension appears to have a lot of beneficial features. All great things here. Really what separates Dropified is the number of stores linked, 40 is pretty amazing. I like the idea of a 60 day challenge given this market, sounds pretty motivating. I’m definitely clicking your link to check it out further, thank you!
Thanks for your comment, yes Dropified is an impressive app and their latest updates show that they committed to the development of this app.
All the best
Dropshipping is my first online love. I started with an ebay store and actually did pretty good in terms of sales but being the margins so low on ebay I ended up closing the store. I’m thrilled with dropified and alidropship because they can actually help me to cut the high intermediation cost required by ebay hence increasing a bit more my return. I just registered through your link. thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your comment, I still hear that eBay can be profitable but only if you sell in huge volumes. I know a few people who are raking it in with eBay drop shipping.
All the best
