Mailchimp eCommerce API + AliDropship + Da Vinci Theme

#1
Hi,

Has anyone manage to integrate the following setup together?

This is for Mailchimp to automate the emails, leveraging it's automation to send out emails that are easy to edit with drag & drop.

Setup details:
  1. AliDropship (not woo)
  2. Da Vinci Theme: https://alidropship.com/themes/davinci/
  3. Mailchimp eCommerce API: https://developer.mailchimp.com/documentation/mailchimp/reference/ecommerce/stores/

WooCommerce has too much overhead and lags the website when you install too many plugins, so I was thinking of a leaner setup (less memory + CPU).

Any documentation on API/Hooks on Alidropship plugin? I think an extension store with 3rd parties can help Alidropship's business too; just like Apple's iTunes store.

Why use Mailchimp and make life difficult when you have all these to choose from? https://help.alidropship.com/settings#email-notifications

Pepipost in particular. 30,000 free mails per month.

emails that are easy to edit with drag & drop.
Mailpoet Newsletter can do all that ... for free. And it's compatiple with the Original plugin.

WooCommerce has too much overhead and lags the website when you install too many plugins,
A long standing myth. (Google it) Not all plugins operate at the same time. It also depends on what plugins you have and your hosting environment. I have 36 plugins in 7 Woo installations and score an average of 92 or so on Google's Page Speed Insights and a load time under 2 seconds.
