You did not state which Alidropship plugin you are using. Original or Woocommerce.

I cannot find that data.
Probably because it can't be done. (with the Original plugin) Just like Woocommerce, Shopify would have a different database with different product tables than the Alidropship Original plugin. Shopify's database and product tables would also be different from Woocommerce's as well of course. An export/import conversion script or plugin would be needed and there are none for the Alidropship Original plugin. As for Woocommerce ... keep reading.

Moving your products from the Original to Woocommerce .... Can't be done. You must start from scratch and re-import from Aliexpress.

** Google is your friend: https://www.google.com/search?q=imp...ome..69i57.13939j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

The above is based on common sense, two minutes of Googling and basic database knowledge only. I have never exported/imported products from Alidropship to Shopify. For a definite answer, write to support@alidropship.com

But WHY anyone would want to move to Shopify with its exorbitant monthly fees is a mystery to me. Maybe because Shopify puts out a strong message on how easy it is for newbies and people are too lazy to go through any learning curve. (The same people who ultimately fail) I don't know. If one is serious about running a business as independently and economically as possible ... avoid Shopify. Just my opinion.

thank you for replying, so basically it can't be done since I use the original plugin.

I have various reasons to move to Shopify even though is more expensive:
1. Alidropship original plugin doesn't support Afterpay (which is very popular in Australia, and now in USA, UK, Canada).
2. I also sell to other countries where currencies do not use cents, this is imposible to do with the original plugin. I found out this puts customers off, so it is essential to my business.

What about this option: import all my products using csv files, and enter manually the ALiexpress URL once I start receiving orders for certain products... I think this could work. For doing this, I will be using the Alidropship plugin for Shopify. Your thoughts?

Is it possible to import my products using CSV files to woocommerce? I understand the Aliexpress URL won't be available, but is it possible to import my products (I have more than 500.. so start from scratch is a no no).

I don't think so. If it is possible, switching from the original plugin to woo version would not be an issue.

Thank you! I just found the post... very insightful. I am not sure if I have the knowledge to do steps 5 and 6 (they are very technical). I am wondering if this is something the Alidropship support team would do as a paid task?

That was posted long time ago. Despite the many users who want to switch to the woo version, never seen someone did it successfully with that post.
