If you have been looking into any sort of online e-commerce business, you have no doubt come across the term dropshipping. Dropshipping is a very popular way for people to run their ecommerce businesses because they don’t have to take on any inventory.
Everything that you sell in your store can conveniently be stored and shipped from any dropshipper around the world.
It’s a very appealing business model because it takes so much hassle out of having to stockpile your garage with tons of products, and all you need is a laptop and an internet connection. No storefront needed.
But as you dig deeper into the world of dropshipping, you will quickly notice there are hundreds of dropshipping tools out there that you can use. The problem is trying to find the best dropshipping company to serve your needs and which products and services they offer.
With all the above said, today I wanted to focus on two popular dropshipping applications called Ezusy and WooDropship. My goal is to help you understand the differences and find out which app might be right for your ecommerce business.
So let’s dive right in with Ezusy vs WooDropship!
Ezusy is a dropshipping app that functions as an AliExpress products importer for WooCommerce stores.
In essence, Ezusy is a web-based dropshipping tool that does not require download. Also, it is not a WordPress plugin.
However, users are provided with a Chrome extension for adding AliExpress products to their WooCommerce-based stores.
In fact, Ezusy is an easy to use dropshipping tool that is ideal for non-tech-savvy dropshippers. It also has a comprehensible dashboard that enables users to view stats from yesterday, 7 days ago, 30 days ago, and the last 90 days.
The dashboard also shows you the net sales in the time period chosen, average net daily sales, orders placed, items purchased, and total of refunded orders.
In order to import products into your dashboard, you are going to need to download the Chrome Extension first.
Getting started with Ezusy is easy and straightforward. All you need to do is to follow these steps:
- Install the Ezusy Chrome Browser Extension
- Connect your WooCommerce store with Ezusy. Do this by pasting your URL link into the URL space in the Ezusy setting.
- Set the pricing rule. You will be able to get this done in your Ezusy dashboard. It is the fastest way to change the prices of products in bulk.
- Import products from AliExpress to Ezusy. Just click on the Ezusy icon next to the product, select all the products you want, and then move them in bulk.
This is a simple feature that lets you filter products that can be shipped through ePacket.
Essentially this is a feature that prevents you from having to log in to AliExpress to order a product that a customer has just ordered on your ecommerce site. Ezusy automatically will do this for you.
With the pricing automation tool that Ezusy offers, you can’t price items by category, but it still saves you a ton of time because you don’t have to individually price items that you add to your ecommerce store.
There are two ways that you can price your store items, either through fixed mark-up or multiplier, and the great thing, as mentioned above, it can be done automatically.
Sometimes with other applications, you can have problems with smoothly importing products due to the variations of each one including price, size, weight, etc.
With Ezusy’s app, it makes it very easy to quickly push products to your store with different images, due to variations in the product.
This feature from Ezusy will notify you automatically when there are any price updates or product changes to AliExpress.
One of the most important things for you to be able to do is customize the products that you choose to sell on your ecommerce store. With the Ezusy app, you can easily do this before you import the products from AliExpress into your store.
It’s a nice feature to have so that you can have more control over the entire process from start to finish.
With the search and important feature on Ezusy, you can filter products by minimum and maximum price, products with coupon codes, whether or not the product has free shipping, and product ratings.
The search filters aren’t that robust, and you can’t bulk important items, which is probably one of the downfalls of Ezusy.
Ezusy has four different pricing options you can choose from. They do have a free option you can use when you first start, but as you grow, you will want to use the plan size that suits your needs.
With the free plan, you can import up to 150 products to your store. So depending on how big or small you want to be, this may be good enough for you. As you move up in price, you will be able to import more and more items to your store.
The other big difference between the pricing plans is the number of AliExpress order fulfillments you can have. With the free version, you can have up to 50 AliExpress order fulfillments. The largest plan offers unlimited fulfillments.
Ezusy also offers a seven-day money back guarantee that promises, if you aren’t 100% satisfied, you can get all of your money back.
- Search and import feature
- One-click order fulfillment
- Bulk price rule-setting advantage
- Easy image/description editor
The major challenge with Ezusy is the product import limit on the basic plan. However, if you subscribed for Ezusy’s Unlimited Plan, then you can import unlimited products.
WooDropship is a competing platform that also allows you to add and sell AliExpress products using your WooCommerce dropshipping store. To begin, WooDropship is a plugin that is designed to work directly with the WooCommerce platform.
If you are not familiar with WooCommerce, it is one of the more popular ecommerce platforms to set up your store with. It works as a WordPress plugin and makes it super simple for beginners to get started with their online retail business.
Just like Ezusy, you may utilize WooDropship’s Google Chrome extension if you prefer to use Chrome. This extension allows you to import and sell products with just one click of a button. You can also sort out products with the Epacket delivery option using this extension.
What is different about WooDropship compared to Ezusy is that you can buy a store through WooDropship starting from $199 and immediately get your store set up in less than 48 hours.
The store includes one-year hosting, a .com domain name, SSL Certification, complete store set up, and free WooDropship pro. On top of this, you will get free custom logo creation, and a variety of different themes that you can choose from for your new store.
It’s a fantastic starter package deal, and it lends itself to be the one-stop-shop platform for all of your ecommerce needs.
WooDropship is very easy to set up. Don’t worry. You don’t have to have any advanced programming skills. Here’s just a sneak peek at what to expect.
The first step is to set up your WooCommerce store in WordPress. It’s quite simple, and you can use this tutorial here that walks you through the process.
There is a way inside of your WooCommerce platform to set up the free shipping option. Make sure you do this. The reason you should do this is that it will help with increasing your conversions and sales and it will give your store a little more credibility.
The final step is to get your plugin installed on your WooCommerce store. All you need to do is sign up on the WooDropship website then download the plugin into your WooCommerce WordPress site.
Once you get signed up, it will immediately take you into the dashboard. From here, you will want to immediately connect to your current store if you already have one set up, or you can buy a new store, which I talked about a little bit in the beginning of this section about WooDropship.
To begin doing anything you are going to need to either connect to an existing store that you have or you will need to buy a new store.
To install the Google Chrome Extension for WooDropship use the following link, and then you will have the tools you need to get started.
You can easily start uploading products from AliExpress with your new Google Chrome Extension.
WooDropship lets you easily add products from AliExpress. This is probably the number one reason why it’s beneficial to use these plugins to help you with efficiently creating your online store.
When you are dealing with product sales of any kind, especially inventory, you are going to need to have everything synced with your dropshipping store. So basically AliExpress needs to be well-synced with your WooCommerce store in order to keep you up to date and organized.
For example, how would you know when the price of a product that you sell goes up? Or how would you know if the supplier of one of your products is out of stock or out of a certain size? Maybe there is even a special deal on the particular item you are selling.
All of these sync issues and communication updates can be solved with WooDropship. It’s a vital piece of running your business.
The WooDropship plugin will help keep everything straight so that there is no confusion or errors with your store.
This section becomes the most important part of your business. You need to become profitable as quickly as possible so that you can continue to invest in marketing your business online.
This is where setting up your pricing rules comes in handy. You will want to make sure you are correctly marking up your product so that you are not only making a profit, but you are also keeping your prices competitive so that your customers keep coming back again and again.
In the initial stage of importing the product into your store from AliExpress, not only can you set the pricing margins for your product, but you can also edit the description of the product. I’ll talk a little bit more about that below.
One of the things you want to pay attention to when you are pricing your product is your competition. Let’s say you have a product that is selling for $17 on your store. Make sure you do your research and keep your product similar to what the market will bear.
Is there anything you can give as a bonus perhaps that may have the customer buy from you instead of somebody else in the same niche? These are just some thoughts to remember when pricing products.
WooDropship has an easy to use tool to help with editing the images that you import into your store. You have to be careful because sometimes companies use watermarks on their images and you can accidently import them without realizing it.
Companies do this because they don’t want you to steal their images, even if you are selling their products in your store. It’s the same thing that happens when you go and do an image search on Google and try to snag an image from someone else’s website.
You have to be very careful when doing this because it can become not only a watermark issue, but a copyright issue as well.
With AliExpress, you will definitely run into some products that have watermarks on them, but you will be able to remove them using the image editor from WooDropship.
It’s a very important feature to have, and it makes it so much easier than having to go through other channels to somehow get the watermark removed.
Having the ability to customize your product descriptions is very important, and WooDropship has a very nice and easy tool inside that allows you to do this.
You also want to make sure you have plenty of information for your potential buyers because the more information, the better when it comes to writing a description for your product.
Your description is the place where you have the chance to show off your creativity and sell to your potential buyers. You can also add images, if you would like, to each product. You will want to add the product variants at this point as well.
WooDropship allows you to fulfill orders directly when the customer orders with just one click. It’s a great feature and will make running your store super easy.
WooDropship offers only a lifetime plan, which implies that you only have to make a one-time payment.
Here are the details of the WooDropship pricing plan:
WooDropship Lifetime – $49
- Unlimited product imports
- Variants mapping
- Unlimited orders
- Top priority Support

- They both enable users to run dropshipping business on WooCommerce stores.
- Both Ezusy and WooDropship are easy to use.
- WooDropship has both a WordPress plugin and Chrome extension. However, Ezusy only has a Chrome extension.
- Unlike WooDropship that offers a single lifetime plan, Ezusy offers four different pricing plans.
Follow these steps to install the Ezusy Chrome extension:
- First, ensure that your Google account is synced with the Chrome browser.
- Go to the Ezusy Chrome extension page on Chrome Web Store.
- Then click ‘add to chrome”. The extension will be downloaded and installed. You can find it at the extension bar next to your Chrome search tab.
Connecting Ezusy to WooCommerce is quite easy. Take the simple steps below:

- Click on Connect Store, then Approve, and finally, Done.
Follow these steps to start WooCommerce dropshipping online store:
- Research on the products that you intend to dropship.
- Set up a WooCommerce store for your dropshipping business.
- Install a WooCommerce dropshipping plugin and complete the installation process. This can be WooDropship, AliDropship or any other dropshipping plugin.
- Add a free shipping option. AliExpress has an ePacket shipping option in place.
- Install your preferred WooCommerce dropshipping plugin.
- Then, import products from AliExpress or your preferred dropshipping provider to your online storefront.
Both WooDropship and Ezusy are extremely good dropshipping tools to use for your business to make it simple and easy, especially when you are first starting.
However, the better tool is WooDropship. This is because it is accessible via WordPress plugin and Chrome extension, whereas Ezusy is only accessible as a Chrome extension.
Another reason why WooDropship is the winner of theis Ezusy vs WooDropship comparison is because it has an affordable lifetime pricing plan, unlike Ezusy which ties users to monthly-recurring subscription plans.
