Are you currently using Chrome or a browser that supports the Chrome Web Store and are you running a dropshipping business? Then this article will be awesome for you!
In this article, you will find the 8 best Chrome extensions for dropshipping store owners just like you.
The first Chrome extension that is perfect for your dropshipping store is called Grammarly. Now, you might have heard of them or you might not, but I have included it because there is a chance that this extension is new for you.
I have included them in this list because they help you check and improve your English grammar. This is definitely great if English isn't your first language, but you still want to sell in English. For example, by having your product descriptions and advertisements in English.
Wouldn't it be great if you had someone who could double-check it just in case you missed something?
Well, that's Grammarly! They can check your words everywhere you want, and if they don't support your application at the moment, then you can simply copy it over to their Grammarly app. That app also has a web version, so you don't need to install it.
They do currently have a paid version if you're looking to correct more mistakes, but the free version is awesome already!
If you're interested in learning more about what Grammarly can do for your dropshipping store, then check out this article here.

Next up are a few Chrome extensions that will help you with AliExpress dropshipping.
It helps you to easily see the processing time and if the AliExpress seller got ePacket shipping available. Although, side note, due to Covid-19 that isn't always the best shipping method.

3. AliScraper (Spocket)
Before, their customers had to use a different app to process their AliExpress orders. That's why they launched AliScraper so you can easily import AliExpress products to your store while still using Spocket at the same time.
You can then process these orders on the same dashboard as your Spocket orders.
So, if you're currently using Spocket and want to sell a few products from AliExpress as well, then this is the Chrome extension for you!

4. Sell The Trend
This is a great extension that helps you import products from AliExpress and helps you process your orders directly inside the Sell The Trend dashboard. And yes, they offer 1-click order fulfillment as well, just like DSers.
You can use this one if you're already using Sell The Trend for your product research, so everything is easily accessible in one place! (Same as with Spocket above)

The next Chrome extension won't be a tool that helps you with processing orders. No, this one helps you with picking the right AliExpress dropshipping suppliers.
It helps you see tons of data about the AliExpress seller. For example, you can see the price history of a product:
You can also save the product via their extension by clicking on the heart at the right.
Another great feature of this extension is that it can help you find AliExpress sellers if you have an image of a product.
Simply hover with your mouse over an image from, for example, a product from your competitor, then you can press ‘Find on AliExpress'.
It will then open a popup where it will search for AliExpress sellers that are selling that product. For example:
Keep in mind that there are probably better AliExpress suppliers out there that are selling that product, but it's a great little tool if you can't find them yourself and are second-guessing if they are using AliExpress or not.

6. Commerce Inspector
The next Chrome extension will help your dropshipping store with competitor research, and you can even use it for product research. It's called Commerce Inspector.
This extension lets you see the best selling products, Facebook ads, monthly site visitors, and more on an ecommerce store. Plus, they added a new feature called ‘Trends'. Here you can see the top dropshipping trends like top posts and products.
Great for product research, right?
They do have a paid version available with more options, but the free Chrome extension is awesome already. If you want to check out their pricing, then you can click here.

Next up is another awesome extension to do competitor research. It's called SimilarWeb.
This extension lets you see how much traffic your competitors have. Just keep in mind that they are estimates and that they don't have an estimate for every single website.
But they have an estimate for most of the bigger websites. For example, here is a screenshot of how it looks like on this website:
There is one exception to the estimates, and that is when websites connect their Google Analytics account to SimilarWeb. Yes, you can do that.

8. Ali Insider

As you may guess, this extension is focused on AliExpress!
Besides the Chrome extension, Ali Insider has a pretty nice website explaining the products they offer. You can find their website here.
Ali Insider offers a lot of features. Mentioning all of them would be too much, but here are some of their main features:
