We want entrepreneurs all over the globe to accept their customers’ payments effortlessly. This is why we constantly broaden the range of payment gateways available to AliDropship plugin users.

  • Built-in products database

Speaking of product-related AliDropship updates, we certainly need to mention this incredible breakthrough, too.

This year, we integrated an impressive 50,000+ products database into our plugin. So, while staying within your admin area, you can easily:

  • Access this database of high-quality AliExpress items from reputable and trustworthy suppliers
  • View the adorable pre-edited product pages with thoughtfully made descriptions and image galleries
  • Import any of these items to your store without leaving your website or getting redirected to AliExpress
  • Get 50 first imports for FREE!

For a newcomer to dropshipping, it’s certainly a great way to create an appealing product offer with no hassle and extra costs. Besides, learning from the database product examples, it’s easy to see what’s the best way to make a purchase-stimulating product page.

AliDropship updates: Dropship Insights

best AliExpress stores

As you can see, the last year was all about providing our current and prospective clients with handy dropshipping information. For example, both AliDropship Google Chrome extension and built-in product database were designed to help our plugin users make well-informed importing decisions.

Seeing the practical value of these solutions and receiving positive customer feedback, we decided to go further – and built 3 more dropshipping databases with free access.

Bestsellers Insight

The first section of the major Dropship Insights database is Bestsellers Insight. As you can guess from its name, it’s more than just a selection of pre-edited AliExpress products 🙂

To create this Insight section, we used internal AliExpress data. This is how we determined the most purchased, highly demanded products that are likely to bring solid profits to resellers. Therefore, each product listing in this database contains more than just a catchy title, fancy description, and a colorful picture gallery. There, you will also find an in-depth analysis of the product’s features and authentic reviews, the suppliers’ info and shipping options, the potential profit from reselling the item, and more. Clearly, these are the details that every business owner would like to know before adding this or that item to their dropshipping store!

Top Suppliers

This section of the Dropship Insights database is also built with the help of genuine AliExpress data.

Browsing it, you can see top AliExpress suppliers with the largest amount of followers, learn how long they have been operating, and check out the niches they’re working in.

With over 640 suppliers from more than 150 niches, you can easily pick the most reliable business partners to cooperate with, and safely fill your store with the items from these trusted sellers.

Best Niches

Niche choice is often considered to be the most challenging stage of launching a dropshipping business.

To help entrepreneurs-to-be find their winning niches without carrying out an extensive market research, we’ve created the Best Niches Insight database.

Here, you can specify your broad area of interest, and see the list of niches and categories that suit you the most. Then, you can filter them out using several crucial criteria (demand dynamics, search volume, the amount and gender of Facebook users who might potentially be interested in the items, and the most promising target region). As a result, the system will show you a range of the most impressive dropshipping niches to take and benefit from.

AliDropship updates: 7 new themes

To make a profitable dropshipping store with a strong brand, it’s not enough to simply pick good products from demanded niches and trustworthy suppliers. It’s vital to demonstrate them in an appealing way to trigger impulse purchases. That’s exactly what AliDropship themes are for!

In 2019, our skilled developers and talented designers created 7 more mobile-friendly, customer-oriented themes to help you turn as many of your store visitors into loyal buyers as possible. Here they are!
