My Bottom Line Upfront

DropGenius is an AI-driven Shopify store builder for aspiring dropshipping businesses. It partners with Spocket, a reputable dropshipping supplier platform, to simplify eCommerce store creation, product selection, and overall store management.

As such, DropGenius is best for those new to dropshipping who want to get up and running fast using Shopify and Spocket to fuel their dropshipping endeavors. 

With that said, I’ll walk you through what AI DropGenius is, its prices, its pros and cons, and much more so that hopefully, by the end of my review, you’ll have a better idea of whether DropGenious is a good fit for your business.  

What is DropGenius?

In short, DropGenius is an AI Shopify store builder that budding entrepreneurs can use to support their dropshipping ventures. Users can create stunning eCommerce websites within minutes! 

In other words, DropGenius is explicitly designed to simplify and automate the building of your online dropshipping store. 

Founded in September 2023 and launched in March 2024, DropGenius’s AI does the following for you:

As mentioned above, DropGenius offers a quick and easy way to create a Shopify store.

Curates trending products

Recommends themes for your store’s design

Streamlines eCommerce operations (for example, DropGenius automates order fulfillment, tracks store performance with analytics, and offers 24/7 customer support).

A blog on the dropshipping platform, Spocket, tells us that DropGenius is, in fact, a Spocket creation and that it “features some really intuitive, user-friendly tools that can help you to achieve those business goals.” 

With that in mind, unsurprisingly, DropGenius integrates with Spocket. It’s also available for Shopify users and accessible via the DropGenius website or the Shopify App Store. It’s also worth noting that DropGenius integrates with AliExpress, Alibaba, 1688, Eprolo, and DS. 

Lastly, at the time of writing, 150k+ customers have used DropGenius to generate their dropshipping stores, which I think is pretty impressive!

How DropGenius Works

It’s simple to sign up. You can install DropGenius by logging into your Shopify store or via the DropGenius website.

With the latter, just type in an email address and click the “Get Started” button. You then follow four simple setup steps:

Step 1

You’re taken to a store-building page from which you have a choice of four color schemes to pick from:

Cool (I went with this choice)




Once done, click “Next” and head to:

Step 2 

Next, you’re asked to choose a product category for your store. There are five options to choose from. However, you can only opt for one of the following:

Pick for me based on what’s trending 

Tech accessories


Men’s clothing

Women’s clothing

If you opt for any but the first on the list, you’ll be taken to a page that offers products in that category. 

For example, by clicking “tech accessories,” I was then offered a choice of one of the following subcategories:

Audio and visual

Cases and covers

Mobile and laptop accessories.

For accessories, it was one of the following subcategories:

Scarves and bandanas


For men’s clothing, it was one of the following subcategories:





Lastly, for women’s clothing, it was:


Tank tops



Once done, click the “next button,” which takes you to:

Step 3 

Now, it’s time to select the perfect word to describe your store’s character. You’re offered a choice of:





Having chosen “Modern” to describe our store’s look and feel, we clicked “next” to:

Step 4

DropGenius then asks you to tell it where your business is located:

North America




I decided to opt for ‘Global’. 

Once done, it was time to click the “review and buy” button. 

You’re then taken to a payment page to choose a price plan (see prices lower down in our review).

When you click that, you’re taken directly to the Spocket Help Center, where you see a page of headings related to dropshipping and Spocket. These include links to articles on launching a dropshipping store, About Spocket, and more. 

As for DropGenius reviews, they are thin on the ground. Trustpilot users give it a 1.6 out of 5 stars, with users complaining it’s a “scam” with problems around billing and cancellation.

At the time of writing, other sites, such as Capterra and Software Advice, had no reviews.

The DropGenius website lists 5-star reviews from its customers, citing its ease of use and how quickly DropGenius’s AI creates Shopify stores. 

DropGenius Review: My Final Thoughts

That brings us to the end of my DropGenius review. Hopefully, you now have a clearer idea of what it is and whether or not you think it’s worth the outlay.

Overall, DropGenius could be an excellent solution for launching a dropshipping store on Shopify and sourcing dropshipping products using Spcoket. It’s incredibly appealing to entrepreneurs who want to hit the ground running because you could have your online store live within minutes!

However, DropGenius is still an incredibly new platform, so it’s not particularly tried and tested. Issues raised on TrustPilot concerning billing and refunds might put you off. 

That said, I think DropGenius is undoubtedly one to watch, and I can’t wait to see how they progress!
