This is such as great question! The best app to import products directly from AliExpress at the moment is Oberlo, though you can also use the other app. I would recommend using one of the apps, because using both may cause a conflict, especially when it comes to fulfilling orders. Personally, I use the Oberlo app with my own website and it's everything I need - it gets the job done! Have you also had a chance to read the documentations on the Oberlo HelpCenter? There are some really good information, such as the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section.
I hope this helps and have a lovely weekend!
Today the Oberlo service is down and I cannot import anything to my store. So I was wondering the same thing....can I use more than one app without causing a conflict. I noticed a completely free app called Unitexpres which has both a Shopify and Chrome app just like Oberlo. Initially I was only looking for a way to import products and then have Oberlo pick up on them afterwards, but I am not sure if this is the case yet.
Using more than one dropshipping app on your store can actually hurt your website. So, it's better you stick to one. However, you should understand that Oberlo and AliDropship are two different plugins.
You can only use the AliDropship plugin on a WordPress site while Oberlo only on Shopify. So, it can't be interchanged.
Some customers on our platform connect their orders in both Shopify and Woocommerce to our APP, so that orders from both of his stores can be automatically synced to our system or presented separately. I think you can consider our platform if you need to, and our platform is free to use. If you are interested it, pls add my skype: live:df06d84b06e3df04
