Aliplugin Website Problems and Assistance

I have a website that I designed with the Aliplugin.  This is it: http://essmen.com/.  My website visits are about 400 visits per day with any advertising other than links on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.  I have two problems. One is the traffic and the other is that fact that no one is buying any of the affiliate products.  I have close to 19000 products on the website and can add more. I was advised by the Alipartnership to add as much product to increase my chances of indexing quickly.  I am a complete newbie and want to stop spinning my wheels on these issues. Can I get a little help on getting possible free traffic or very cheap traffic? And, I want to know how I can possibly get some one to buy something on my website to start making affiliate income?  I have had the website up going on two months. I do not want to just jump ship now based on the advise of the Aliplugin people. i'm just sayin'

Why is your site NOT Secured by HTTPS

I have a great question. I am logging after 2 months more than 6,000 visitors per month with no affiliate buys.  I asked the Alipartnership if the HTTP vs HTTPS mattered when trying to convert affiliate offers.  They told me that it did not matter! Wow.

Can you explain to me if it is necessary to get the HTTPS?  I need an expert's opinion. Really!

The kingfroot@yahoo.com is my email.  

I will get rid of the email address since it confusing.  

Thanks.

It would be better if it was https.  This is also hurting your SEO.  You should keep the customer on your site and use api's to communicate back and forth with aliexpress

I guess I will move the website to Amazon S3.  Thanks!  I kind of figured that it was affecting my SEO.

Do you have an idea where I can get an Aliexpress API Key and Tracking ID? (Newbie, here)

Right now, I am using an Affiliate URL from the ePN, affiliate marketer.

I removed the email address.

I really want the Aliplugin to work for me.

OMG.  Thanks so much.

I had the case of the "Mean Internet."

I was doing my research in the wrong area.

Thank you so much.

Do you have anything else to any more experts advice for me?  Because I am on the right track now!

Thanks so much.

I will upgrade the Https on Tuesday.  

I got what I need. I have been back and forth arguing with the "Internet."

I am on my way.

Thanks so much @DavidJohnsonCDMVP
