I'm looking for a way to connect my shopify store with cjdropshipping. According to the cjdropshipping website they need my store login information, but I don't want to be giving them complete control over the store.
Is there some other way to connect cjdropshipping with the store for order fulfillment? How do you use them to do your order fulfillment if you use them?
Aria here, I'm on the Social Care team at Shopify.
I'm not familiar with CJ Dropshipping in particular but the normal way you'd set this up would be to create a Custom Fulfilment Service on your store. With this method, you would set CJ Dropshipping as the fulfilment service for the products you are expecting them to ship and they'll get an email each time one of these products are sold.
There may be a good reason they feel they need login details for your store. It would be a good idea to ask them for these reasons and double check with me or another Shopify Guru before going ahead with that. If you do deem it necessary, you can set up a staff account for them, don't give them your account owner login. You can then restrict their access to the sections of the store they actually need to access. You can find out more about setting up staff accounts in this guide.
I'm happy to help with anything else you need. What sort of plan do you have for marketing your store?

how can I restrict them just to product list orders? and do not want them to change my prices as they please!! they are really asking too much her
You can't restrict what they can access and also use their service. If you don't feel comfortable granting the access they are looking for, I suggest you use another supplier. We have a lot of dropshipping suppliers in our app store. Hopefully one of them will work for you.
Let me know what sort of products you wish to sell if you'd like some recommendations.
What kind of suppliers are you looking for? I'm with Modalyst and we have tons of products that are trendy and well priced. You can learn more about our app on the Shopify app store. Here's a link to our app listing: https://apps.shopify.com/modalyst
Please let me know if you'd like to chat about your supplier strategy. Our team is available via live chat or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
You can try ShopMaster, which has integrated CJDropshipping as a supplier. You can import CJ products and place CJ orders thru ShopMaster.

I tend to agree this doesn't sound right, I wouldn't suggest giving login credentials to a warehousing partner. Ideally an integration would connect in a way that only gives the partner access to the information they need to deliver the product and also gives you the ability to revoke their access at anytime.
You might want to consider our service shipatron.io - we are a London based app with customers across all geographies and industries. The solution plugs into the Shopify API and then lets you configure a warehouse or drop shipping partner. We are already setup with a number of dropshippers/3PL/warehouses and we'd be happy to configure cjdropshipping for you.
We have a free forever plan but our basic pricing starts at just $9.99 per month, and can have a rules-based system, so if you want to route orders to different drop-shippers, you can too. Here's the info': https://shipatron.io/multiple_fulfilment_warehouses
