Are you looking for the best dropshipping automation software? Awesome! In this article, I will cover the 11 best automation tools that will help you make your dropshipping store easier to handle. These tools will save you so much time!
Why Should You Use a Dropshipping Automation Software? And What Is It?
Let’s start with understanding what dropshipping automation software is. You can also call it ‘order processing apps/tools’.
These order processing apps will help you to easily manage your dropshipping orders!
Do you know what will happen without an app like this?
You will need to go to your dropshipping supplier (for example, an AliExpress seller), and order each of your orders manually. Typing in everything yourself, like the address of your customer.
Imagine having thousands of orders each day.
Do you see yourself ordering them all manually? I don’t think so.
This is were these order processing apps come into play. They will help you to easily place your orders with your dropshipping supplier.
Some of these processing apps only support AliExpress, but some apps will also support other websites like eBay, Amazon, DHgate, and many more! (You can see more AliExpress alternatives here)
And some even have their own dropshipping suppliers available for you.
This way, you don’t need to do AliExpress dropshipping if you don’t want that!
The 11 Best Dropshipping Automation Software in 2021
So, you know now what dropshipping automation software is and why people use it to make their dropshipping store easier to manage.
It’s time now to learn what the best order processing tools are!
Just keep in mind that, in most cases, one of these order processing apps is enough! You don’t need to collect them all, haha.
The first and most popular software that helps you with automating your dropshipping store is Oberlo.
Oberlo helps you connecting your dropshipping store with AliExpress. The only thing is that it an app specially made for Shopify, and you can only connect it with AliExpress.
What is the price of Oberlo?
For most dropshipping beginners, Oberlo is completely free to use. Because you can use it for unlimited monthly orders. (Before this there was a 50 orders per month maximum for the free plan)
But if you’re interested in more features, like getting AliExpress cashback, then upgrading to the basic or pro plan is necessary, which currently is $30 or $80 per month, as you can see above.
The next automation software is called Dropified! Here are some of their main features:
I suggest reading this article by Dropified if you want a more in-depth comparison between Dropified and Oberlo (I showed Oberlo above).
But the biggest difference between the two is that Dropified can help you with importing products and automatically placing orders with AliExpress and eBay, but they support a lot more websites that you can import your products from:
As a comparison, Oberlo only supports AliExpress.
Plus, they support way more ecommerce platforms than Oberlo. While Oberlo only integrates with Shopify; Dropified integrates with these ecommerce platforms:
What is the price of Dropified?
Their price is currently $19 or $47 per month:
Or you can check out their private label on demand plan:
And yes, Dropified offers a 14-day free trial!
DSers “selling point” is that they can process your orders really fast. You can place multiple orders (bulk orders) at the same time.
If you’re used to Oberlo, then DSers will be super fast! No more ordering one order at a time.
The great thing is that they are also an official AliExpress dropshipping partner:
DSers currently supports both Shopify and WooCommerce store owners!
The only downside of DSers is that you will only use it if you’re dropshipping with AliExpress, but if you’re doing that, then this app will surely save you some time!
What is the price of DSers?
The basic version of DSers is completely free! But they do have a paid version now.
You can choose between $2, $20, or $50 per month. This depends on the number of features that you want:
You can find more information about their pricing plan and features here.
4. Inventory Source
Let’s continue this list with Inventory Source! They offer 230+ pre-integrated suppliers, 25+ ecommerce platform integrations, and 200,000+ unique products.
That’s a lot, right?
One of the benefits of using Inventory Source is that they don’t add a markup on top of your supplier’s price.
Plus, their customer support is 24/7!
Another reason to use Inventory Source is if you want to use US Direct as your dropshipping supplier.
The reason is simple; the only connection with your store to US Direct is Inventory Source.
If you’re interested in learning more about US Direct, then check this out here.
As you can see, Inventory Source looks good, but keep in mind that this might not be the perfect dropshipping software for you if you’re just beginning with dropshipping and have a low budget.
This is mainly because of their high monthly price, which we will go over now:
What is the price of Inventory Source?
The current price of Inventory Source is either $99 or $150, depending on your needs:
As you can see above, they also have a free plan, but this only contains access to their dropshipping suppliers and products.
So if you want automation, then you will have to go for one of their paid plans.
If you’re interested in learning more about their pricing plans, then check this out here.
The next automation software is called AliDropship.
This is the tool that I mentioned a lot on my blog already and where I wrote a review for. (You can find the review)
AliDropship helps you connect your WooCommerce dropshipping store to AliExpress. Although you can also use it on a WordPress website without WooCommerce!
So if you got a Shopify store, then this one isn’t for you.
Here are some of the main features of AliDropship:
I suggest going to their feature list here to see all their features written down.
What is the price of AliDropship?
The current price of AliDropship is $89, but you will get a 25% discount if you use the discount code GETPLUGIN25
Now it’s only $66,75! Awesome, right?

uDroppy is a platform designed to support all ecommerce businesses. They take care of sourcing, fulfilling, and the shipment of your products. All you have to do after signing up for uDroppy is to take care of the marketing!
You can easily integrate your Shopify dropshipping store with uDroppy, which works the same as any other dropshipping app like Oberlo, but the main difference is that you can truly do one-click order fulfillment for all the orders that you have. Simply press one button, and it’s done.
Once you fulfilled the orders, they will take care of the shipping. And guess what? They can ship to every country in 4-15 days!
That’s a lot better than the 2-4 weeks from AliExpress, right?
If you want to read more about uDroppy, then I suggest reading this.
What is the price of uDroppy?
The current price of uDroppy ranges from $49 to $249 per month, but I do have two discount codes for you in case you’re interested:
They do have a free plan available so you can check out the platform yourself and see if it’s something for you and your dropshipping store!
The free plan got most of the features of the first paid plan ($49), but they limited it so you can only add ten products per month to your store.
And, like most things in life, it’s cheaper for you if you decide to pay yearly instead of monthly.
8. Zendrop (The Silkroad Dropshipping)
Zendrop (previously called “Silkroad”) is the next software that helps your dropshipping store. Zendrop got its own suppliers, so you don’t have to use AliExpress.
A lot of these big Youtube “Gurus” are promoting Zendrop at the moment.
For example, see these two videos from Scott & Hayden:
I personally think it’s getting hyped up a lot by a lot of YouTubers (as you can see above).
But if you can still try it out and see if it’s something for you and your dropshipping store, because they offer a free account!
Keep in mind that Zendrop currently only integrates with Shopify. If you want to read more about Zendrop, then I suggest reading this article here.
What is the price of Zendrop?
The current price of Zendrop is either free or $49. Or you can go for the Plus plan where you need to contact them.
If you only want Zendrop, then it’s either free (for up to 50 orders per month) or it’s $49 per month for unlimited orders and a lot of extra features like I talked about above.
Also, it will be cheaper if you pay yearly.
ApiDrop is another great order processing app for your dropshipping store that lets you import products from different kinds of websites like BigBuy:
Here are some of the key features of ApiDrop:
- Ability to browse the whole supplier’s catalog directly inside ApiDrop.
