WIIO is a dropshipping supplier similar to services such as Zendrop, uDroppy, CJDropshipping, and others.
They are an up and coming alternative to AliExpress dropshipping.
WIIO has a Shopify app and WooCommerce plugin for easy integrations.
WIIO has its own products, stored in 3 warehouses (2 in China, 1 in the US) but also allows you to import products directly from AliExpress.
In 2015, Wiio was founded to help dropshippers with fulfillment.
Since then until now, we handle product development, procurement, customization, and fulfillment abroad.
But in the beginning, there were only 4 people in the company. We were a start-up, and it is never an easy thing.
At that time, we didn’t have our own ERP system. This led to a slow and laggy process.
Five years later, we now have a team of over 150 amazing people. Now, we were able to upgrade our application and services.

So how do their products fare against AliExpress pricing?
After all they do claim to be cheaper than AliExpress, so are they really?
Coverless Twist Cup
AliExpress: $11.85 + $1.84 Shipping. $13.69 total.
WIIO: $6.93 + $6.41 Shipping. $13.34 total.
Automatic Induction Disinfection Sprayer
On AliExpress: $12.52 + Free shipping. $12.52 total.
On WIIO: $6.65 + $7.16 Shipping. $13.81 total.
Resitance Band Door Anchor
On AliExpress: $0.99 + $2.48 Shipping. $3.47 total.
On WIIO: $0.66 + $4.77 Shipping. $4.77 total.
As you can see from this pricing comparison, WIIO always charges LESS than AliExpress but they charge A LOT more for shipping.
Most products end up around the same price as AliExpress when you include shipping costs.
Sometimes products on WIIO are slightly cheaper, and sometimes they are slightly more expensive.
WIIO does provide faster shipping, so they should definitely get some credit there and this pricing comparison proves they are a very good alternative to AliExpress.
However, they rub me the wrong way in the way they price their products.
It seems to me they are trying to mislead drop shippers.
They advertise products as cheaper than AliExpress but the only reason they are cheaper is because they charge A LOT for shipping.
As of right now, using WIIO, is completely free.
They will never charge you for a monthly fee, which is great.
This makes them similar to other free suppliers such as CJDropshipping and Eprolo.
WIIO has dedicated warehouses that can hold your inventory for you.
This means that you can order products in bulk and let WIIO do the fulfillment for you.
This way, you’re still dropshipping in a way, but you also own your own stock and can reap the benefits of doing so.
Benefits of buying in bulk are:
WIIO dropshipping has warehouses in China and the US.
Need to sell a product but can’t find it in WIIO’s product catalog?
WIIO will source it for you.
Or at least, that’s what they tell you on their home page.
I have no experience with the product sourcing requests and they don’t seem to have a sourcing request tab built into their dashboard.
Out of experience with other suppliers, my guess is that if you reach out to them, they will probably source it for you if they deem the product good enough.
Don’t take my word for it, though.
WIIO allows you to pay with PayPal for your orders.
This is great because this means you will fall under the PayPal Buyer Protection.
Which if you have dropshipping experience, is both a blessing and a curse.
Great for buyers, terrible for sellers.
In this case, it means PayPal will cover you, if WIIO tries to screw you over.
WIIO claims to provide better pricing than AliExpress.
This is a claim they live up to for the most part, as most products are definitely lower priced than they are on AliExpres.
However, they charge really high shipping prices (almost always over $7) which usually leads products to be priced similar, slightly cheaper, or slightly more expensive than those on AliExpress.
Just like with CJDropshipping, WIIO has a service where you can request product photography and videos.
This is a great add-on as you don’t have to take them yourselves and the footage will be more professional.
Of course, product photos and videos are not free and you’ll have to request a quote.
For an additional fee, you can request custom packaging with your brand logo on them.
You can also get custom labels and even include thank-you cards inside the packages.
Clearly, being one of the biggest marketplaces in the world, AliExpress has a far broader product catalog.
You’ll have a hard time NOT finding a product on AliExpress.
WIIO on the other hand, is pretty limited.
Often though, products on WIIO are cheaper than on AliExpress.
Combine that with faster delivery speeds and WIIO comes out on top.
But only if they actually have the product.
I like WIIO as a dropshipping service.
I like that they’re free to use and provide a faster shipping alternative to AliExpress.
However, I find that their main competitor CJDropshipping has a larger product catalog with cheaper prices, so I would use them over WIIO as of right now.
I hope as they continue to grow, they will try harder to stand out from competitors such as CJDropshipping.
This concludes my WIIO Review.
