Aliexpress dropshipping options? (plugins, software etc)

I've searched the web many hours but I also found out that on a message board people still come with viable options that I didn't find myself.

Now, by far my favorite is the plugin from Yaros, it is probably the most versatile plugin and I will probably purchase his plugin but there are a few things I am missing and these are:
  • lack of themes, his plugin, unless you are a WP coding master, only work with his themes and currently there are only 2 and a third in beta testing.
  • no customer login (or maybe i just missed it but the people I know that run his themes don't have that option)
Now I firmly believe design can make a big difference and I like to stand out, I know several people who use his plugin, and don't take me wrong, his themes look clean but most of their sites look the same, except a different logo and text, so it is easy for me to recognize it is a aliexpress dropship website and I don't want people to recognize my site and directly know what is the deal.

I also missing a customer login, it is easier for the customer for future purchases so they don't have to fill in all their details again and it is easier to send out a newsletter.

Besides that I think his plugin is the best for it's money, you need to purchase a new licence for every new website you design but it's OTO but I might have overlooked things.

While researching options I stumbled on woocommerce. It seems a viable option at first, you can choose between loads of customizable themes but to actually get it to run with woocommerce and aliexpress it will cost you a LOT in the end, I am talking $500-1000 and that is not for life but reoccurs every year.

Then shopify with oberlo, sames issue as with woocommerce.

So, any other options that doesn't cost a ton and have the features I look for?

    I'm a little bit confused, you talk about plugins and software and tools - aren't you just talking about a shopsystem? Or do you consider doing affiliate marketing with AliExpress products?

    Shopify is always a good idea but you are right, 99% of the shop I see look the same. You immediately recognize a Shopify store if you see one. This is not neccessarily bad, by no means, but if you want something creative and individual you either have to go with WooCommerce (where customization is a little easier) or use Shopify with a more "unique" theme or even hire a cheap developer and get a customized one (of course there are more options than these like 3D Cart, Magento and stuff like this, but the two before are the most popular ones for small starter shops).

    Unfortunately its not possible to get a super easy to fully customize shop PLUS high usability/easy backend PLUS cheap price PLUS fast realization PLUS appropriate tools to automate AliExpress dropshipping.

    I believe you can integrate the alidropship plugin with woocommerce and use it with any theme, right ?

    I'm also confused. So you are talking about unique design, right? That's easy. Hire a freelancer to do custom design for your store. Design has nothing to do with plugin or app.

    Billy have you checked out Sellosity? Cart Closed - Sellosity

    You may want to get on the waiting list. $297 a year but integrates with aliexpress, the sites look good and integrates with woo and payment processors.
