Aliexpress Dropshipping

Finding Products – AliExpress Dropshipping?

If you’re a complete beginner to the world of dropshipping – and I’m assuming you are if you’re reading this! – then your best bet with product selection is on AliExpress. What is AliExpress? It’s essentially a giant Chinese marketplace with a wide selection of products from socks to canoes and everything you can imagine in between.

This marketplace makes it extremely convenient to find products to sell on your store without having to worry about buying physical inventory upfront or shipping.

So, AliExpress is the usual path of choice for the vast majority of beginners, if not all beginners. But again, I’ll let you in on a useful advanced tip – AliExpress isn’t the be all or end all of dropshipping vendors.

You need to realize dropshipping is a business model, you can dropship from literally any vendor as long as they agree to the set up, dropshipping isn’t always “AliExpress dropshipping”.

Here’s the secret so many people overlook in the game. You can literally dropship from eBay, Amazon and DHGate and they have many perks over AliExpress, most importantly cutting shipping times by over a half.

The only thing AliExpress has over the aforementioned options is the fact that it is the most accessible and the prices are usually the cheapest. Dropshipping from eBay, Amazon and DHGate allows you to:

  • Select products from a wider range, often of higher quality
  • Cuts shipping times dramatically (the most important point)
  • Shop from a credible and local address

If you’re going down the path of dropshipping with AliExpress, then I highly recommend downloading Oberlo as a free app on Shopify. Oberlo is essentially an app that makes importing products and fulfilling products (once your customers begin to order) so easy! If you’re thinking of dropshipping from your woocommerce store then Alidropship is the plugin to use.
