Dropified can automate the ordering process on AliExpress and eBay. If you are placing orders with Alibaba then go here. If you are ordering from any of the other sites we support for Dropshipping then you will have to use the Manual Order Process.
To begin, navigate to your Dropified Orders page.
From there, you can click Place Order and choose an ordering method.
You can select from the following order types:
Auto Order - the whole process is automated
Auto - Choose Shipping - an auto order where you can change the shipping method first
Step by Step - semi-automated where you can approve each step of the process
Manual Order - no automation
Alternatively, you can use Order Items or Bulk Order Processing features.
Click the Order Items button on the upper right-hand corner of the order to allow Dropified to automatically place all items in an order.
This will open the supplier's page and start the auto ordering process for each item in the order. When the ordering process is finished, the Order IDs will be added back to Dropified to mark it as "Order Placed".
You can initiate several orders at once, and these will be queued up and placed automatically. Once order process is complete, it will open a new tab for another order in queue. You also have the option to change the Orders Queue settings.
Note the following symbols in Orders Queue:
Check mark means the order is complete and mark as ordered.
Rotating arrows means the items in the order is processing.
Hourglass simply means the order is the next one to be processed.
If you have marked the order as Fulfilled in Shopify then it won't show up in your Order Menu in Dropified unless you switch the default filter settings to capture Any orders in the Fulfillment option.
If orders are not marked as "Order Placed", please ensure Automatically Mark as Ordered is enabled in your Dropified store settings.
If you're using CommerceHQ, the order will also be marked as "Sent to Fulfillment" in your store.
You'll also need the Dropified Chrome Extension installed:
