Hello,
Can you please help to understand the following?
1) Does Alidropship support dual language (English / Arabic) where user/buyer can switch between the languages? If yes, is that part of the fees or it would come with an additional fee / customization?
2) Apart from store creation, what else is included in Ali Dropship?
a. Do we need to communicate with / pay for the payment gateway providers separately or that’s part of the offered packages?
b. Do we need to communicate with / pay for hosting service providers and domain name registration or that’s part of the offered package?
3) Do we get domain-name.com or we get sub-domain.shopify.com / sub-domain.alidropship.com?
4) Can we provide users/buyers with multiple shipment options that correspond to multiple different prices? Is that a ready option to select from or require extra customization?
5) Similarly, can we provide users/buyers with multiple options to select from different variations (size, color, quantity..)? Is that a ready option to select from or require extra customization?
6) If we want to create multiple stores/ websites within the same account, do we need to pay and register twice or we can use the same account to create multiple stores (but add a different domain name)? does this come with an extra charge?

Thank you!

It can't be multi lingual with the Original plugin. Only with the Woo plugin. However, it can be translated to ONE language. But it will cost extra to for the plugins and a freelancer to do it for you. See this ... https://forum.alidropship.com/threads/multi-language.8309/#post-46492

And here are more search results to read ... https://forum.alidropship.com/search/130463/?q=Multi+language&o=date

a. Do we need to communicate with / pay for the payment gateway providers separately or that’s part of the offered packages?
You need to set up the accounts with Paypal and another payment gateway, then give the details to Alidropship. You will get instructions.

b. Do we need to communicate with / pay for hosting service providers and domain name registration or that’s part of the offered package?
It depends on what package you choose. The more expensive one with Alidropship hosting included or hosting selected by you.

If it's the first one with Alidropship hosting included, they will handle it all.

If you want to choose your own hosting, you have to apply for it, then give the cPanel URL and login details to Alidropship so they can install your site.

You get a domain-name.com

4) Can we provide users/buyers with multiple shipment options that correspond to multiple different prices? Is that a ready option to select from or require extra customization?
No. You cannot automatically base shipping prices based on product prices. If you used Woocommerce you could do it on a product by product basis with specialised extra plugins. But seeing as the recommended way to go is to use free shipping on all products ... this isn't really an issue.

5) Similarly, can we provide users/buyers with multiple options to select from different variations (size, color, quantity..)? Is that a ready option to select from or require extra customization?
Yes. That is determined by the Aliexpress seller's product listing. If his product has variations, they will also be available in your store's listing.

6) If we want to create multiple stores/ websites within the same account, do we need to pay and register twice or we can use the same account to create multiple stores (but add a different domain name)? does this come with an extra charge?
One Alidropship licence is valid for one domain. You need to buy a separate licence for each domain. You can also get the license reset and changed to another domain later if you wish. e.g I have 8 stores/domains and 8 licenses.

If you are using Alidropship Hosting or another hosting company you can use the one account to host multiple domains. It depends on the hosting package how many you can host. Some are unlimited. Here are details about Alidropship hosting ... https://help.alidropship.com/hosting/upgrading-alidropship-hosting-plan

Also .. you have to pay for each extra domain name and possibly upgrade your hosting so you have enough space, bandwidth, CPU allowance etc for the extra sites.

Also, I suggest you read the "Knowledge Base" here. It may answer other questions ... https://help.alidropship.com/

Disclaimer: I do not work for Alidropship. This info is just from what I have learned over the past 2 years or so plus info already available.

@Yaros ... please correct any misinformation I gave.

What payment details do you need to give them? Do they integrate it with their plugin? I used to use Printful plugin before and all was set up with Woocommerce. I can't remember now but I think all was done by me on their website. Or is there something deep technical that they have to interfere?

What payment details do you need to give them?
The API Keys, email address etc. You are given simple instructions on where to generate and copy the API keys. It's illegal to set up a finance related account in another person's name. That's why you have to do it yourself. It's really quite simple to do. And if there was anyone incapable of following simple instructions and opening Paypal and other gateway accounts, they probably wouldn't be intelligent enough to run an online business anyway. lol :)

Do they integrate it with their plugin?
Payment gateways are already integrated with the Original plugin and as extra plugins with Woocommerce. They just need to enter your details into them.

Or is there something deep technical that they have to interfere?
No. Copy/Pasting API keys etc into a box is not deep technical.

I have Stripe and PayPal accounts already opened from a previous store. Just thought I'd need to do something much more. Anyways no worries, I'll give Alidropship my details, if that's what they need, no biggie
