AliExpress launched, some time ago, a new tool called the AliExpress Dropshipping Center, but how do you access it? And how do you use it for your dropshipping store? Follow me below and you will know how to add it to your AliExpress account and how to use it correctly! Are you ready?
What Is the AliExpress Dropshipping Center?
This is the tool AliExpress made to make dropshipping with AliExpress easier.
You got 3 great tools inside the AliExpress dropshipping center.
And do you know what the best part is about the dropshipping center is? It’s free to use!
Tool 1: Hot dropshipping items
This is a great tool to do product research.
It will show you all the hot dropshipping items in a specific niche or you can select “All Categories” to show products in all the categories.
This will surely give you a lot of ideas for products to sell on your dropshipping store.
Tool 2: Trusted suppliers rank
This tool works the same as the tool above (the product research tool). You can sort the AliExpress suppliers by category.
This will show you the most trusted suppliers in the category that you selected.
Using this tool is a great way to find trustworthy suppliers for your dropshipping store.
Tool 3: Product analysis
This one is awesome!
You can input a URL at the top from the product that you want to analyze.
After you click on “Search”, you will see a lot of data from that product.
For example, you can see the “Sale Volume” from each day. Sale volume means how much that product got sold on that day.
You can even see how reliable their logistics is. This means how high the chance is that the product will come on time. I think AliExpress does this by combining all the data they have (like reviews, tracking information, and so on).
You can only research one product at the time and it will only give sales volume from the AliExpress supplier that you copied to product URL from.
So, there could be a chance that other AliExpress suppliers are selling even more of the same product.
How to Add the Dropshipping Center to Your AliExpress Account?
I had it already enabled when the tool became available on AliExpress.
Personally, I think there are 3 options to enable the dropshipping center on AliExpress.
- Place enough orders so that AliExpress thinks you’re dropshipping. I think this happened to me because suddenly I had a notification showing me about the dropshipping center.
- Adding an AliExpress supported app. At the time of writing this, it’s DSers and ShopMaster. You can check out this article for ShopMaster. Or you can watch the video below from DSers.
- You can simply go to this link and sign up for the AliExpress dropshipping center. All you have to do is be logged in to your AliExpress account and press a button.
This is the easiest one and I think it’s available for everyone (I tested it by creating a new AliExpress account and it did enable the dropshipping center on my new AliExpress account!)
How to Access the AliExpress Dropshipping Center?
This one is easy.
Once you have activated the AliExpress dropshipping center you can then find it if you press on any tab under your profile, like My AliExpress or My Orders.
Then, if everything went good, you will see a new button on the top row of buttons named Dropshipping Center. Just like on my screenshot above.
Click on that and it will bring you to the AliExpress dropshipping center!
How to Use the AliExpress Dropshipping Center for Your Dropshipping Store?
You have some extra product research tools available for free.
This is great if you’re running your dropshipping store on a tight budget and you can’t afford any product research tools yet.
If you’re still doing product research, then I suggest checking out the hot dropshipping items section and browse through the different niches.
Or simply select the same niche that you have on your dropshipping store.
You will surely find a lot of products there that could bring you a profit!
Or you can go to the trust suppliers rank section and go to a niche that you want to sell in and then go to the top suppliers in that niche.
You can then go to the products that that supplier sells and sort it by Orders. This way you will see their products with the most orders first.
For example, I clicked on the supplier that ranked first on “Home & Garden”. I then sorted their products by most orders, as you can see in the screenshot below.
More orders mean more demand for that product! This could indicate that a lot of people want that product.
For example, if I really liked the pancake maker, then I would click on it and copy the URL (or you could copy the URL directly, of course) and paste it on their Product Analysis tool.
This way you will easily see if that product is still getting orders each day or not. Maybe it does have 10,000 orders, but now it only gets 1 order each day.
If you found a product you like, then I suggest putting the product URL from different suppliers (selling the same product) in the product analysis tool.
The great thing about putting the product URL there from multiple suppliers that are selling the same product is to see which supplier is getting the most orders for that product.
You can also check the logistics reliability of each supplier. This could help you with the choice of which AliExpress supplier to go with.
