What is Sell The Trend?
Sell The Trend is a product research tool that helps you with finding winning products for your store with data sources from AliExpress, Amazon, and a ton of Shopify stores.
Just take a look at the image below to see all the different things Sell The Trend does:
The great thing is that you can do each of these steps yourself with all the different tools that they have inside:
It’s like you’re subscribing to a lot of different product research tools, right? Well, you’ve got all of this inside one tool!
Plus, they’ve currently got almost five million products available for you:
Let’s begin with the most in-depth Sell The Trend review you have ever seen!
Are you ready to find out if this product research tool is something for you or not?
Are you ready to see Sell The Trend from the inside and not just see screenshots from their website?
If so, then let’s get started with my awesome in-depth review of Sell The Trend!
Just to note, I won’t just include images from their landing page. This way, you can know exactly if this product research tool is something for you or not. For example:
I will show you all the tools inside Sell The Trend. These tools will help you find winning products for your dropshipping store.
With each tool, I will give you my personal opinion of that tool in the form of a conclusion. Is that tool worth using? Can they improve something? And so on.
And of course, in the end, I will give you my final conclusion of if I think Sell The Trend is worth your money or not!
A quick warning though, it’s a long review because I’m going over everything inside Sell The Trend.
So, if you don’t have time, simply scroll to the bottom to see the conclusion!
Some great things in each product research tool inside Sell the Trend
I will first show you a few things that are great and that you can find in each of these tools that I’m about to review for you below.
Each tool has a favorite section
You can press the red heart in the corner of the product or store. This way, you can keep scrolling without having to worry where that awesome product, store or ad was that you liked so much!
You can then find them again, easily organized:
Each tool has a lot of filter and sorting options
And by a lot, I mean a lot. I still haven’t try them all yet.
For example, see these screenshots below of the filter and sorting options of their “Nexus.” (You can click here to scroll down to learn about the Nexus.)
Here you can see the filter options:
Plus, you can even sort by ‘US Shipping’ to only show products that ship from the United States:
And here you can see the sorting options:
You can sort most of the results of these tools by niches and categories
You can see the screenshot below for some of the niches that you can sort by:
The screenshot below will show you what kind of categories you can sort by. Categories are broader terms, like Jewelry or Beauty & Health.
I think this is awesome if you don’t have any inspiration yet about which niche to pick for your dropshipping store.
Each page has a “What’s on this page” text
This will display a short text about what that current tool does when you hover over it with your mouse:
It’s also got a video play button next to it which will show you a video demonstration of that tool:
Plus, they’ve got a whole page dedicated to all their tutorial videos:
That’s why I thought it was so easy to use when I first tried it.
AliExpress Trend Explorer
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 their AliExpress trend explorer!
Like I said above, you will have a lot of filter and sorting options. For example, you can filter to only show products priced over a certain amount. Or to only show products over a certain amount of orders. You can even sort it by if that product has a video available or not.
You can also filter onbythe number of stars that the product must have. This is great if you only want to see products with, for example, more than 4.8 stars:
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.
Conclusion of the AliExpress Trend Explorer
I love that they show you so much data, especially the graph. It’s great that you can see how well the product is selling on AliExpress. Is that product getting any orders these past weeks, or not?
Personally, for me, it was quite overwhelming because there were so many products.
I could keep scrolling and new products came popping up that I had never even heard of.
But I guess this is a good thing. It showed me how much data they have.
And one more thing about the video sorting option. It could just be me, but most of the times when Sell The Trend said a product had a video available and I clicked through to AliExpress, I couldn’t find any video there.
Amazon Trend Explorer
As you probably know, Amazon is a great site for product research. To see what sells well.
Now you can let Sell The Trend do the boring part.
This tool will show you the hot products, hidden gems and new stars on Amazon at this moment.
Just like with the AliExpress trend explorer, they will give each product’s Trend Points.
You can see how much it increases each day and the overall increment since they began tracking the product.
Conclusion of the Amazon Trend Explorer
I thought it was amazing that you don’t have to go to Amazon anymore and manually look at how each product is ranking for each category.
Yes, you can’t sort on dropshipping products, but neither can you do that on Amazon.
You use Amazon to get product ideas and see what’s hot and selling well because it’s a great sign if something is selling well on Amazon.
Shopify Store Explorer
You’ve got two options inside this tool, the product and the store explorer.
Shopify Product Explorer
The first option is the product explorer. This shows you every product from every store that they are tracking.
Like with each explorer tool, you’ve got a lot of filter and sorting options available to you.
The great thing is that you can filter by “Dropshipping Verified.” This will only show you products that are confirmed to be from stores that are focused on dropshipping:
Shopify Store Explorer
The second option is the store explorer. This shows you every Shopify store that they are currently tracking.
The great thing, as with the option above, is that you can filter by dropshipping stores. This will only show you Shopify dropshipping stores.
But as you might have guessed already, they have a lot more data available for you.
You can see an example of their current top four dropshipping stores in the screenshot below:
As you can see, they show you a lot more information than just a Shopify store name.
- They will show you how much traffic per month each store is getting. I think it’s an estimate. If they don’t have that information for that store, they will show you “Low Traffic.”
- They also show you how much that store spends on tech (like Shopify apps) each month. Again, I think it’s an estimate.
- They will also show you if they found any tracking on that store. Like from Facebook or Google.
- And they will show you their social media profiles. The last thing that they will show you is if they found any social media profiles from that store. For example, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and so on.
Conclusion of the Shopify Store Explorer
I absolutely love this tool. I used it for one of my popular articles: Awesome Dropshipping Store Examples.
It gave me an easy way to find other Shopify dropshipping stores out there to see what everyone else is doing with their product descriptions, home pages and so on. Definitely a great way to learn!
One thing though, not all dropshipping stores are “Dropshipping Verified.” So if you can’t find any more dropshipping stores, try searching without that filter enabled.
The Nexus product research machine
The Nexus. This is their powerful product research machine!
If you’re not that interested in these tools above or simply don’t have the time to look at each one manually, this is the tool for you!
It combines all the tools that I reviewed above and shows you what products are trending, hot, and on the rise. It even shows you which Shopify stores are hot and trending!
Do you remember this image from the beginning?
These steps are all the tools I reviewed for you above. Now finally comes the last step: The Nexus!
This tool does a lot. So, if you want to know more about it, I suggest watching this video from them below. They will explain everything to you:
Conclusion of The Nexus product research machine
I guess you already know what I’m going to say. This one is awesome!
You can find so many products that you can sell, and you don’t even need that much time for it!
I will show you an example of a product from their Nexus below! This product was on their Hot Products section, and it took me less than ten seconds to find. It was literally on the first row.
Sell The Trend dropshipping product example
Here are a few things explained when you find a product you like:
- Selling on five popular stores. This will show you how many popular Shopify stores are selling that product.
- Orders. This will show you the total amount of orders that the product has.
- Profit margin. This is only the selling price – the product cost. No advertisement costs and so on.
- Sales! They multiply the orders with the selling price. This way you can easily see an estimate of how much money people spend on that product.
These buttons will bring you to the platform that you click on. They will automatically search for the name of your product.
For example, the Facebook button will bring you to Facebook where you can view the Facebook posts of that product.
Yes, as you can see with this product, the product name is long.
Although, not all product names are long, as you can see in the screenshot below of another hot product from their Nexus!
Here you can see the example from if you press on the AliExpress button:
Or on the Amazon button:
And here is one of the Shopify stores that are currently selling this product:
Let’s talk about the best button now. You might have seen it already in the screenshot above and wondered what it was.
I’m talking about the green “Product Research” button.
If you click on it, you can see all the data they have on that product. Even a graph which shows you if the orders are going up daily or staying the same.
It’s easy to understand, so I don’t think I need to give any more explanation for this screenshot.
Although, I will say something about the Facebook Targeting at the bottom.
They will give you Facebook Targeting suggestions with each product. This is great if you don’t have any idea where to start with selling the product that you just found.
Was that enough data for you to do product research?
Well, if it’s not, then read on!
You can press on “Stores Trend” on the product you like. It’s at the right of the product price.
This will give you the “Time Machine.” You’ve got two options here.
One is to view the timeline. You can easily see when the product has been added to a Shopify store.
This is great if you find a product that has been added a few times already the past week. This indicates that the product is trending!
You can also see a chart if you prefer that more.
Extra tools inside Sell The Trend
If these product research tools above aren’t enough to convince you that this tool is great, they have a few more awesome tools for you to get the best dropshipping store out there.
Yes, these tools below might not be perfect for the more experienced dropshippers (it might miss some features), but don’t forget that these are all included in one tool. No need to pay anything extra.
If you think that you have read enough and want to try the trial already, then you can click here or on the image below to start your 7-day free trial!
Importing products & fulfilling orders
I’ll start with this awesome extra tool inside Sell The Trend. You can easily import products from Sell The Trend (or directly from AliExpress) to your Shopify or WooCommerce store.
At first, they only supported Shopify, but they also integrate with WooCommerce now. Awesome, right?
But that’s not all; you can also fulfill your orders through this tool.
Yes, you heard that right, there is a new Oberlo alternative on the market!
I’ll walk you through the steps on installing it on a Shopify store so you can see how easy it is. But you can also easily install it on WooCommerce!
Firstly, you need to connect your Shopify store to Sell The Trend by installing their Shopify app.
You will also need to install their Chrome Extension. This extension will help you with fulfilling your orders (like Oberlo).
Secondly, you need to find a product inside Sell The Trend that you like and want to import to your dropshipping store. For example:
Here are some things that are nice to know about their import to store tool:
- You can edit the fulfillment source. If you don’t want to use their selected AliExpress supplier for that product, you can change it (even if you have already imported the product). Or you can simply go to AliExpress where you can import any product that you want as if you were using Oberlo:
- Import details from other stores. Take a look at my screenshot above. Do you see something different in the product description? Well, that’s because they imported that from the stores that are currently selling that product. Of course, use it as inspiration, but it’s a lot better than the standard AliExpress descriptions that are normally shown!
And here is the result after importing that product to my test store:
Then, after you have connected your store and imported your products, it’s time to receive orders! Once the moment comes that you receive an order, you can easily fulfil that order with the Chrome Extension that you installed in the first step.
But do you know what the great thing is now?
They have 1-click fulfillment ordering. Not like Oberlo, but like DSers, where you can order your orders with one click on a button instead of ordering each order separately.
If you’re curious now, you can learn more about that feature in this video here:
Plus, they keep updating this feature. For example, they now have an integration with CJdropshipping as well:
Conclusion of the importing products & fulfilling orders tool
Wow, this is awesome!
When I review product research tools, I always see that they’ve added an ‘Add to Store’ feature, but my opinion of that feature is, well, useless…
Because you will still need an app like Oberlo to help you with processing the orders that you get. (Or you want to manually order them.)
But now Sell The Trend is changing this all. They are the first (as far as I know) that have added this feature to become a true Oberlo alternative!
Let’s continue with their newly released tool called ‘Store Intelligence’. You might have guessed already what it does by the name, but if not, I’ll explain this awesome new feature for you below.
In this tool, you can fill in the URL of a Shopify store, and it will show you a lot of data. Such as the monthly traffic, avg. product price, monthly orders and monthly revenue.
Take, for example, the dropshipping store Dogpawty:
As you can see, they estimated that they make around $500,000 per month in revenue!
Plus, if you scroll down, you will also see their best selling products:
You can then easily add these to your own store as well with the extra tool that I talked about above.
Here’s another example from the dropshipping store Bluecrate:
Conclusion of the store intelligence tool
It’s so great that Sell The Trend finally added a tool that lets you estimate the revenue of your competitors!
I think it’s a great addition, and I can’t wait to see what else they are going to add in the future. (Yes, they are still working each day to make this product research tool the best one on the market.)
The only thing you need to keep in mind is that the monthly revenue isn’t all profit.
First off, it’s just an estimate based on their traffic and industry standards conversion rates.
And secondly, monthly revenue is simply their sales for the month. It doesn’t include any costs, like product costs. Although they do mention an estimate on how much they spend on tech:
The next extra tool that they’ve got is a quick link to the product videos section.
This one is super easy to explain, and I won’t need a conclusion of this tool because it’s awesome to get some inspiration!
Alright, so with this tool, you can use the same filter and sorting options as with every other tool that I covered above. Plus, you can directly view and download the video inside Sell The Trend by pressing the play button.
Just don’t forget about copyright laws, and this will be a great extra tool for inspiration or to find products that have a video available.
For example, I sorted the product videos by ‘Daily Order Change’ with the highest percentage increase:
Facebook audience builder
In case you need some ideas for your Facebook Ad targeting, they’ve got you covered with this tool.
You can press on a popular audience on the right or type your keyword in the search bar.
They will give you some tips on what interests you can target if you want to sell something in that niche.
Conclusion of the Facebook audience builder
I think it’s awesome if you don’t know where to start with your Facebook Ad targeting.
And even if you’re experienced, I think you can still get some great ideas from them.
Like what I saw when I pressed on Home decor; a section with Jobs. I didn’t think of targeting an interior designer before.
And it’s great if you don’t have much experience in the niche that you want to sell a product in. This way, you got some starting points with the targeting.
So yes, it’s definitely nice that they added this as well to their big list of tools!
Video Ads Creator
This is perfect if you’re just beginning with dropshipping or if you don’t know how to make a video ad yet.
You can either upload your images to this tool directly, or you can let it fetch the image from an image URL.
After that, you will have a few options that you can select to make your video ad perfect. You can see them on the screenshot below:
Conclusion of the Video Ads Creator
It’s definitely easy to use, and it’s got a lot of options for creating your first video ad.
But this tool might not be as great if you got some experience with, for example, making videos, as this tool will be too basic for you and might be too limited in the options it has.
Like, you can set a text on the top and bottom, but you can’t change it (yet) to a different text when a new image comes up.
Engagement Rating Calculator
You can use this tool for Instagram and Twitter influencers.
It’s an easy way to see what the influencer’s rating is. For Instagram, just fill in the number of followers, likes, and comments. You can also fill in the number of retweets for Twitter influencers.
The likes, comments, and retweets are either from one post, or you can take a rough estimate of their average from all their posts (or the last nine, for example).
Conclusion of the Engagement Rating Calculator
It’s a nice little tool that got included here. I definitely didn’t expect it to be included in the first place.
It’s got its downsides though, like you need to make the estimate of their average comments and likes yourself.
In case you don’t want to do that, just use the free Phlanx tool for this. You can fill in the Instagram handle, and it will automatically give you their engagement rate.
This extra tool doesn’t need much explanation or review. It’s simply awesome if you can’t get any ideas at this moment.
Just press “Spin Again,” and you will get four random things from the tools I showed you above.
You can look at the screenshot below for an example:
Maybe the only downside that I found for this tool was that I startled from the sound. It was a bit too loud for me, and I didn’t expect that sound there.
But yeah, that was personal; maybe my sound volume was just too loud at that moment.
Free dropshipping course included inside Sell The Trend
Yes, you read that right. Nine free videos are included where they teach you the basics of dropshipping.
Bad thing? You can also watch almost all of these videos on their YouTube channel. So, it’s not really exclusive for their tool subscribers.
Except for the last two videos. You can only watch these two when you’re subscribed!

So, is Sell The Trend worth your money? Do I recommend to get this tool?
Well, one word? Wow.
This tool has got such a nice combination of so many product research tools and extra tools that you don’t expect in a dropshipping product research tool. Add that all up, and I think Sell The Trend is definitely worth subscribing to.
