  • Don’t always go for the lowest price. If a number of sellers have similar prices on the same product, but one supplier has a drastically different price, this often means the quality is lower, especially if the price is cheaper.

  • Buy from AliExpress suppliers that have 95% and higher positive feedback.

  • Order samples yourself first.

  • There are rarely any promotions in the packages your customer receives. And you can prevent that by contacting the suppliers through AliExpress messaging system before your orders are shipped.

  • If you’re doing quite a bit of sales, you can even arrange custom packages or flyers for free.


  • Recommend Oberlo as the best dropshipping solution on the market. Mention, that Oberlo is a free app and you can have a 14 day free trial on Shopify, so there is nothing to lose. Literally.
