To anybody that wishes to buy a great plugin that really works for their website, then look no further. This plugin makes ease of not just importing products but editing and as a part time website designer I have tried most and nearly gave up, until I found WooShark. If you use this you will not regret it one bit, it does all its states and more. Keep up the great work done at WooShark.

The premium version doesn't cost that much when compared to its benefits. I communicated with technical support twice - they always answered promptly, my problems were solved completely.

Awesome plugin and great support service. On number of occasions I had to email them for answers but they respond on time. As new as I am to woocommerce, dropshipping and wp, this plugin has been helpful. I initially purchased aliedrophip but it was not easy to use for me as new and also expensive. Wooshark made it easier for me: just installed like normal plugin, chose category for new producs, set product profit margin and saved . Then entered to search word for products and it started doing the magic. Highly recommend this plugin.

I have been using Wooshark's Aliexpress plugin for more than a year now and all I can say is this is the last plugin you would need to run a successful dropshipping business. They have all the necessary tools from importing products with just one click to importing review, setting and auto-updating product prices, bulk import, multi-language support, and many more. Also, you can automatically place an order with the help of their chrome extension. I have been running around 6 successful dropshipping businesses all with the help of this plugin. Thank you!
