Step 1 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Get a domain
name & web hosting with iPage

I recommend using iPage. You can save money by buying a 1-year
plan and not getting domain privacy. If you want to buy an SSL
certificate, buy the SSL certificate at the first stage in the
checkout process to get it the cheapest.

Step 2 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Install
WordPress

In the iPage control panel, click on “Wordpress.” Use the Mojo
Marketplace installer to install WordPress. Be sure to install
it on your domain ending in .com (and not .ipage) and keep the
directory empty (and yes – it’s OK to overwrite it).

Step 3 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Install
WooCommerce

Go to WooCommerce and create an account. Install it using their
1-click installation. Then go through the installer program. Be
sure to add PayPal as your payment processor, and select Stripe
IF you purchased an SSL certificate.

Step 4 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Add free
shipping

Go to the shipping settings in WooCommerce and create a
shipping zone. Target worldwide and select it to be free
shipping.

Step 5 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Install
Mystile

Mystile is a free WordPress theme. Download it (make sure you
have verified your WordPress account first), upload it to your
store and then activate it.

Step 6 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Get a
WooDropship account

Go to WooDropship and sign up for a free trial account. Then
install the Chrome extension.

Step 7 to create an Aliexpress dropshipping store: Add products

Open your chrome browser. Go to Aliexpress and search for the
product you want to add. Click the WooDropship button to add
the product to your Import list. Switch back to WooDropship and
go to your Import list. Replace the title and description with
your desired title/description. Click “push to store.”

Click edit on the product that WooDropship has pushed to your
store:

* Edit the formatting
* Change the price and edit product variations
* Change to a full-width page layout
* Add a short product description
* Remove and edit the photos in the image gallery
* Put your product in it’s correct category

Step 8: Update the sidebar

Go to widgets. Delete all of the widgets in the primary
sidebar. Find the “WooCommerce Products” widget and place it in
here. Keep the settings as they are and click save.

Step 9: Add a custom logo

In the Mystile general settings tab, upload your custom logo.
Have it set to hide the site title and tagline.

Step 10: Update the footer

In the Mystile settings click footer customization. Scroll down
and tick “enable custom footer (right).” Keep the box empty and
save changes.

Step 11: Update the homepage

Create a new page and set it to be the homepage in the reading
settings. Add a banner image, text copy and add this shortcode
to show the 8 latest products:

Step 12: Create an about us

Create a new page. Title it “About Us.” Add in website copy and
at least 1 image, then save the page.

Step 13: Create a custom menu

Create a menu: Homepage, products (with submenu under this
containing product categories), cart, checkout, about us &
my account.

Step 14: Launch your store

Click on the button in the dashboard that turns off the “coming
soon” page – done!
