How To Do Product Research For Shopify Dropshipping (AliExpress)

what's going on everyone hatin here back
again with another video and as I'm sure
you saw in the title and thumbnail we're
gonna be toking about how to actually
go through and find your products from
Aliexpress so a lot of people have been
asking me how do I pick my products how
do I even pick my niche how do I find
products that are actually good quality
because you know you're not ordering
them and sending them to your door so
you're just kind of banking off of
reviews and other factors that we'll
tok about but so I'm just gonna dive
right into all that I'm gonna try and
jump into my computer I've never really
done that before in a YouTube video so
hopefully the recording looks good the
sound and everything let's jump on into
my computer okay so now that my computer
I hope that this sounds good and looks
good it doesn't look like it's too high
quality of a video but hopefully that's
alright because I'll just put a little
box in the corner
you're probably me looking at that
anyways but we're here on Aliexpress I'm
gonna jump in kind of go through pick a
couple products and show you guys what
I'd be looking for and more specifically
what I'm not looking for cuz a lot of
this is filtering out the bad just so
you can weed what's good right 95% of
the products you don't even want to mess
with so I'm gonna kind of break down I
wrote down you have some notes and I'm
gonna kind of show you guys my thoughts
and what I'm looking for when I go pick
my products so first thing we're gonna
do I'm just gonna pick phone cases let's
say for iPhone here which I know this is
not something I do at all I have no
connection in this no store I do know
people who do this so I know it's
something that does well but the first
thing I'm gonna do is filter out by
order amount now what does this mean I'm
basically looking for people with 800 to
a thousand orders now I know people who
tok probably toked to you guys about
look for 10,000 20,000 30,000 that's
great but honestly you're trying to
catch a trend here before it blows up so
how can you do that if there's already
tens of thousands of orders that's
already starting to get saturated so one
thing I do want to point out before like
you don't tok about filters before I
actually go through the products is do
not I usually make this mistake I see
people make the mistake all the time do
not filter out by shipping right I used
to click like free shipping only but
you'll have products more often than not
that will have a package shipping for
let's say a dollar so you would not see
those if you filter it out for free
shipping but since they're charging you
for a dollar for shipping they might
lower the product cost a dollar 20 so
overall you're still coming out ahead so
I'd rather just kind of look through
everything instead of having to filter
out and potentially miss a good deal
like that you know some of my products I
have found because of not filtering out
by that so just looking down here I'm
just gonna take one of these down a
little bit
10,000 orders as you can see these are
super cheap
okay that's 11,000 orders that's might
be good I'll open that one up in a new
tab free shipping as well so that's a
very low product cost this would be
something you could do a buy two get one
free buy one get one free a free plus
shipping offer for those I usually try
and keep it under three to four dollar
product cost oh these look good leather
or whatever nice material kind of luxury
looking you could get in that in each so
if you're running in footsore shoutouts
for this one right here let me pull that
up yeah if you're running in floats or
shots for this there's a lot of
different luxury pages you could run
this on and you could target the hell
out of that like Facebook Ads as you can
see here a lot of different color
options black brown pink red so you can
target male and female since you have
those different color options I always
look for something with three color
options or more that's kind of my cutoff
as you can see also gives a lot a lot of
different selections for people with
different you know iPhones so you're
really casting a broad net there yet
it's still very specific okay now as you
can see this doesn't have a package
shipping but at the same time it's not
going to be a big deal right let me tell
you why twenty to forty day shipping
kind of what they're estimating there
it's probably gonna end up being around
twenty five people are expecting it to
take that loss like we toked about in
yesterday's video on how to deal with
long shipping times from Aliexpress it's
not a big deal if you're doing a free
plus shipping on this people are gonna
be expecting it to take a few weeks
anyways and it'll ship to any country I
don't think the shipping price will
really change for that your total price
is still under $2 that's perfect free
plus shipping offer again like I said
I'm not doing any of these products I
have nothing to do with this my thoughts
right now just by looking at this if I
were to do it I would do a free plus
shipping offer
and I'd probably charge like eight to
nine bucks for shipping just because
your your margins are there right it's
under $2 product cost and normally I'll
look for about under three to four so if
you cannot hit double digits with
shipping habits stay under $10 that's
gonna be really really good now second
thing I look for when I actually found a
product that looks good has good amount
of orders you know kind of fits some of
my criteria go to feedback right so I'll
look through the reviews and all perfect
look at this basically everything's
five-star then everything under that
like the only other two criteria 4 star
3 star there's no 2 star 1 star ratings
4.9 out of 5 is a perfect product I
would run with this if you have a store
that fits this niche you sell phone
cases luxury items anything like this
this product definitely fits my criteria
I don't know about you you
you know you're on different system and
stuff you can go scan it but this looks
good to me
good reviews came quickly oh look in
Siberia okay you know how we toked
about the shipping it's not a big deal
this person's in Siberia and it took
only two and a half weeks prices of
course tractable quality sucks
okay good fits well got cracked see what
I'm basically looking for is about 75 to
90% of the comments overall being
positive and then having really good
ratings so quality's good match
description fast delivery nice case
worth the money blah blah blah good
cases beautiful honest okay so look
overall it's positive I'm not gonna
waste too much time because I already
can see that right off the bat so this
is definitely a good product you know it
has a good amount of credibility since
it's been given almost 2,800 reviews so
this specific product is a good one all
right second product here that we're
gonna tok about another phone case as
well I'm gonna switch into another
complete in each different type of
products but we're gonna go through two
of the same type of product so that I
can kind of show you guys the difference
this one is well really good price
ninety nine cents to a buck fifty that's
gonna give you a lot of margins if you
want to do a buy one get one free which
is something I've been testing recently
if you want to do free plus shipping all
that works this fits the criteria as for
orders it's a little bit high but not
high at all it's perfectly fine you
could run with this eleven thousand that
definitely gives it credibility like we
did with the last one look at the
reviews overall this has a 4.8 star it
does have two one stars so that might
just be you know a defect or a dud
product that people didn't like but for
the most of it 8600 people like it so
it's got a you know over a hundred five
stars so I definitely run with this one
this looks good like I said multiple
color options now one thing I do want to
point out here because I'm just seeing
it with these photos and we'll scroll
down and I'll show you how to avoid this
but look at that see right here where it
says light pink on the screen that's
these are the pictures you're gonna want
to put up on your store so you have to
figure out how to get rid of that or
find a picture of this specific product
that doesn't have that so pictures are
huge because you're gonna want to
screenshot these and put them on your
store so if the pictures are very
low-quality have stuff written on them
like these ones do you're gonna have to
think about that you know where are you
gonna get your pictures from because
this can be a pain in the ass shipping
time also doesn't have a packet again
like we said that's fine don't really
worry about
they have a lot in stok so you don't
really have to worry about selling out
too fast or running out of stok so
you'd be good there got a buyer
guarantee which pretty much I always
look for products with that good product
ratings if we go through some of the
comments here you scroll down looks good
came fast good good came two weeks
before ok so that means early shipping
that's good the overall vibe I'm getting
from this one people like it it's coming
fast not too many bad reviews this is
also a product that run with you know so
if you're in the phone case niche or
whatever these two that we've been
toking about right here
those are good to go so let's go back
here and pick a different type of
product I'm just gonna go with a cat toy
for example here I know a lot of people
this is a passion based store I do not
have a cat store at all but it would be
a good niche in just because people are
very passionate about their pets and you
want to build your store around
something that people are passionate
about
okay so again filter by order which you
don't always have to do this is just
something I like to do just to kind of
get immediately in my criteria range for
how many orders they have I am an
incognito right now so that nothing pops
up but I guess it's showing that little
email popup that we do okay so yeah okay
I've actually seen people sell these
right let's let's click on this one okay
so first thing it's around five to six
dollar product that's that's good good
price range leaves you margins for what
actually running some some ads you are
paying for shipping but that is a packet
so it's coming quickly within about two
weeks which is great has multiple
different color options these pictures
look good you could screenshot them and
I'm sure this is one of those products
where you could just google it find more
pictures the biggest thing with that you
know like I toked about having low
quality pictures or stuff on the
pictures a lot of the times if you
google the product you're not gonna get
the exact same one and you have to be
very very careful with that because if
you don't have the same one you'll get
people complaining trust me I've had
that issue as for delivery up on-time
delivery guaranteed in 22 days that's
good it'll probably come faster reviews
let's go to the feedback section oh yeah
look at that by far four or five stars
pretty much everything 4.9 out of 5
stars well over 1500 people have voted
on that so that that's very impressive a
lot of people seem to like it
and again you know this is like the cat
Nisha's something a lot of people doing
a lot of people see success with who
kind of know what they're doing
but this one specifically only has five
thousand orders so you know it's it's
not completely blown up when you see
something with twenty thirty fifty a
hundred thousand orders it's usually a
little bit saturated you know it's
gotten out there people are aware of it
sure you can always make sales there's
always room for more sales but if you
find something with lower orders you
might be able to catch that train before
it blows up now let me just pull up my
notes to make sure we're not missing
anything you're at a lot a lot of
different stuff I wanted to tok about
okay one thing if it's applicable for
your product you know this is typically
if you're doing some sort of clothing
look in their description I'll pull up a
shirt here real quick and show you guys
that look in their description and see
if they have a sizing chart because
you're gonna need that for your product
description on Shopify and if they don't
have that that's something you have to
find look for or create on your own or
just not have so I always have that if
they don't have it I might you know even
not choose that product there's very few
products on my store that I actually
have on there with no sizing chart so
this one it does show a chart it is
Asian size which is a little bit weird
hopefully they show a few others but you
know it's good enough it gives people
some reference okay yeah it does show us
for reference here so they're good to go
there this would be a good product
I haven't actually broken this down so I
don't know it's the price and orders and
everything but always look for a sizing
chart if it's applicable to your product
and your niche for the product you're
trying to do that's something I just
want to make sure that you guys know
because a lot of people end up not
actually adding that stuff into their
product description I'm gonna make a
video here in the next couple days
toking about product descriptions but
for right now just know that that's
something you want in there for sure so
look for that when you're looking for
your products now the only other thing I
can really stress is to do your research
look at a ton of different products you
know like we were breaking down some
phone cases I bet there's tens of
thousands of phone cases on Aliexpress
break them down by orders by sellers by
reviews you know what's congruent what
you see people selling try to identify
trends see what's moving and why it's
moving you know you can do some stuff on
Google which I'm sure we'll tok about
in other videos but this is the basics
that's kind of the stuff you need to
know to really get it kick-started and
get that momentum going I'm gonna try
not spend a bunch of time breaking all
this down but there's obviously a lot
more you need to know we'll tok about
more stuff in later videos but this is
definitely all you need to really get
everything going today start finding
good products with good
with good pictures get it up on your
site and go from that I'm going through
editing right now and I realized I left
one thing out there was super important
that I wanted to tell you so when you're
filtering out your products sort by
orders like we toked about but look at
the one seller was the most orders for a
product that's in your niche and you're
putting on your store take the one
product that is the absolute most orders
ideally like a hundred thousand or
something just massive like that and
then look at the other products to have
listed on their Aliexpress account
usually those other products are gonna
be hot as well or at least starting to
get hot another place to look for
potential trends and try to catch stuff
early so hope that helps so I hope that
helped you guys gave you some value and
kind of give you a sense of direction
and ID on how and what I look for when
