The 6 Best AliExpress Product Discovery Tools
Before we get started on the exciting part, I want to talk about this first.
Please understand that you don't need a paid tool to find products on AliExpress!
But if your budget allows it, then most paid tools do have more features/tools for you to find AliExpress products easier and faster.
That's why I included both free and paid tools on this list!
I'll begin by showing the best free product discovery tools, and then I'll move on to the paid tools.
The 3 best free AliExpress product discovery tools
Are you ready to see the 3 best free product discovery tools for AliExpress?
If so, then let's go!
If not, then take a moment and a deep breath. They are free, remember that.
The first tool is called Thieve. They show you what’s trending right now on AliExpress.
It will show you products from… AliExpress!
All you have to do is signup for a free account with them, and they show you some pretty awesome products from AliExpress!
Furthermore, you can even sort the products by category, so you can see find products inside your niche (if you have a dropshipping niche store):
Curious how it looks now? Awesome!
Below you will find an example of the first products that you will see if you sort by homeware and click on trending products:
At first, they only had a free version available, but now they also have a paid dropshipping version available.
It’s called Thieve Supply; if you want to learn more about it, then you can click here.
2. AliExpress Dropshipping Center
The next product discovery tool is called the AliExpress Dropshipping Center!
This tool is specifically made for dropshippers who want some extra free tools to find awesome and trending products on AliExpress.
For example, they have a product analysis tool for products of AliExpress:
Of course, you don't need to be dropshipping to use this tool!
Just signup for the program (it's free), and you will get all their tools, even if you're not dropshipping (yet).
You can find this product discovery tool inside your AliExpress account after activating it!
In case you don’t know anything about the AliExpress Dropshipping Center or you don’t know how to enable it on your AliExpress account, then I suggest reading my other article here.
The great thing about this tool is that it’s free to use, and it gives you some basic AliExpress product discovery options!
It will add a lot of stuff for you to AliExpress. You could say that it looks a bit like the AliExpress Dropshipping Center, but with this tool, you will get a lot of extra information on the AliExpress product page itself.
This tool allows you to see how long the AliExpress seller has been trading for, how many orders they are processing, and how many sales the AliExpress product is currently getting.
It’s a tool made by Nicolas Rose, and it’s as I said above, it’s completely free to use.
The only thing is that you will need to use it on a browser that uses the Chrome Web Store.

The 3 best paid AliExpress product discovery tools
Let's continue this article with the best AliExpress product discovery tools that are paid!
Keep in mind that these tools have a trial or free account available!
So if you're not sure yet, or if your budget is tight, then just try their trials or free account options!
1. Sell The Trend
Do you know what would be great?
To see all the hot products, new stars, and hidden gems on AliExpress, right?
Well, you can with the AliExpress explorer from Sell The Trend!
You will have a lot of filtering and sorting options. Like filtering to only show products priced over a certain amount. Or to only show products over a certain amount of orders. You can even sort if that product has a video available or not.
What I like the most is that they show a graph with each product. This graph gives you some information, like how many orders the product had over time.
This means that you need to look for a product with a graph that’s going up! Like this product:
The best products then, of course, are the ones where the graph doesn’t have a flat line, and it seems like it’s going up and up. This means that there is a demand for that product on AliExpress.
Sell The Trend even has an AI brand builder, which generates custom product descriptions and catchy social media ads in the tone of your brand. It's similar to chatGPT but trained and tuned for dropshipping!
The current price of Sell The Trend is $39.97 per month.
2. Niche Scraper
The next product discovery tool that also got an AliExpress tool inside is called Niche Scraper.
Niche Scraper included an “AliExpress Product Scraper”:
You might be thinking now: “But AliExpress has so many products, how do I ever find a product to sell”?
You have a ton of options available to sort the products!
Look at this:
This is what you can sort the products on:
- Category. This way, it will only show you products scraped from that AliExpress category. This is great if you’re running a dropshipping niche store or if you’re doing niche research.
- Recent Orders. If you only want products with a certain amount of orders, then this is your filter!
- The price. I guess this one speaks for itself. You can fill in a minimum and maximum price of the product. Maybe you don’t want to show products above $10.
- More filters. If you want more filters, then they have that as well! I will explain below what each score means. Plus, you can filter if a product has a video and if they ship from the US (for faster delivery times).
Now there is one thing left to cover off the filters here, and that is those scores:
I will explain them below:
- AliScore. Their own formula to calculate the “strength” of a product. The higher the score, the better it is.
- Competition. The competition of a product is based on the number of different buyers on AliExpress. A lot of different buyers on AliExpress could mean more dropshipping competition! So, the lower this number is, the better!
- Growth Rate. The rate of increase in sales over the last 7 days. The higher the score, the better it is.
- Recent Orders. This shows how many recent orders that the product has. The higher the recent orders are, the more popular the product is.
To make it even easier for you to understand what you will get with this AliExpress product research tool, here is an example:
Looks clean, right?
Oh, and one thing I didn’t cover, you can also see what country the product is most popular in. In the example above, that is the US.
The great thing is that you not only can filter by a category, but you can also type in any keyword that you want.
Although, you might get some products that are irrelevant because they added that keyword to their product name. For example:
As you can see, you won’t be able to dropship all those products.
Well, I guess you can, but I don’t suggest you dropship any toilet paper, for example.
The current price of Niche Scraper is $39 per month, but it will be cheaper if you use the discount code in my review below.
The great thing about Niche Scraper is that they got a free account option available:
The next tool is called AliShark, and you might guess already by the name that this is indeed a product discovery tool for AliExpress!
If you want a lot of filter options to find awesome products on AliExpress, then AliShark is the right product discovery tool for you. For example, here are some of their filter options:
And they got a lot of options for you if you want to do research with keywords. You can include keywords, and you can even exclude keywords.
For example, I can include the keyword ‘Dog’:
And then I see that I don’t want to sell any ‘Bowls’, then I exclude that keyword:
The current price of AliShark is $20 per month, but they do have a 2-day trial for $1.
