Today I want to show you how to find out which products are the best for droshipping on AliExpress. There is a new set of research tools available (for free) within AliExpress that I’m going to show you how to use.
And of course, if you find this information helpful, please share with friends on social media. That helps us out a lot!
#1. Go to Dropshipping Center
To get to the dropshipping center, you’ll first go to the upper right-hand side of your screen, click on your account icon (My AliExpress), then click on “My AliExpress” from the dropdown menu.
Next, you’re going to want to click on “Dropshipping Center” (located on the far right side of the menu) which is where all the tools are.
If you don’t see “Dropshipping Center” listed there. It means you probably need to sign-up for it and have it activated for your account. Fortunately it’s super quick and easy to do. I created a post here which walks you through the steps of signing up for and activating your own Dropshipping Center.
This will take you inside the Dropshipping Center.
On the left hand side you’ll want to click on “Find Products to Sell”
Next, I’ll show you how to use the “Hot Dropping” items research tool.
#2. Hot Selling (Dropshipping) Items
After clicking on “Find Products to Sell” you’ll automatically be taken to this screen which lists all of the “Hot Selling” items in AliExpress.
You’ll notice there are several different filters you can use, such as being able to filter products by the number of Orders or Sales Performance.
So the first way to use this tool is to just scroll down through the lists of items and see what’s selling well.
Products on this list have had lots of orders, are selling well, would be interesting to sell and are specifically selected by AliExpress as “Hot” dropshipping products.
There are 250 pages of products! So you can go through as many pages as you like.
A second way you can use this research tool is if you’re already in a specific niche or if you want to research products within a certain niche.
Click the arrow in the “Product Category” box and you’ll get a drop-down menu with a list of several categories to choose from. Then you can choose sub-niches or sub-categories if you like as well.
Then once again, you’ll have a list of ‘hot’ products within the niche you’ve chosen that AliExpress recommends for dropshipping.
Next we’ll look at the “Product Analysis” tool which is an excellent tool for learning more about any product you’re interested in. Specifically you’ll be able to see how well it’s selling.
#3. How To Use Product Analysis Tool
The first step is to click on a product you’re interested in (which should open the product up in a separate page). Then you’ll want to copy the URL for that product.
Then you’ll want to go back to your “Dropshipping Center” dashboard and click on the “Product Analysis” tab (which is located on the left-sidebar).
Next, go ahead and paste the URL of the product you want to analyze in the box below “Product URL” and click the “Analyze” button.
Once you do this, you’ll see a graph for the last 14 days of sales.
From this graph, you’ll get a sense of what the average amount of sales per day is and whether sales are increasing or decreasing.
Based on the graph below, we can tell this product is still selling well and that there’s still demand for this product (if you wanted to sell it).
Another helpful piece of information is the “Logistics Reliability” which is located in the upper right-hand side of the graph.
This one shows “Average” which is an ok rating. This rating lets you know whether you might run into issues for shipping time delays or related issues.
If you see a score that says “Under-average” or “Bad” then you may want to stay away from using that particular supplier as your dropshipper.
Ideally though, you want to find suppliers with an “Excellent” Logistics Reliability rating.
That’s really all there is to it.
Using the first tool will help you identify which products AliExpress has identified as being good for dropshippers. And the second tool will help you evaluate the sales and reliability of having that product shipped to your customers without problems.
To watch a video demonstration of this process, Gabriel will explain everything in the video below using an older interface for the Dropshipping Center. But the content and ideas will still be the same:
