00:00:08 00:00:13 you the most money possible in your
00:00:10 00:00:16 online business so when it comes to
00:00:13 00:00:19 selling on Amazon FBA eBay Shopify
00:00:16 00:00:20 Alibaba and Aliexpress are going to be
00:00:19 00:00:23 two of you more popular places to
00:00:20 00:00:24 actually go in source products to sell
00:00:23 00:00:26 to your customers now it really does
00:00:24 00:00:29 depend on the business ball that you're
00:00:26 00:00:30 pursuing are you just reselling are you
00:00:29 00:00:32 drop shipping on top of file your drop
00:00:30 00:00:33 shipping on ebay there's all these
00:00:32 00:00:35 different business models in each
00:00:33 00:00:37 business model you know has a website
00:00:35 00:00:39 that they prefer the most for instance
00:00:37 00:00:41 privately building on Amazon you're
00:00:39 00:00:43 ordering one singular product in bulk
00:00:41 00:00:45 Alibaba is gonna be the best website for
00:00:43 00:00:47 you if you're drop shipping and you're
00:00:45 00:00:49 wanting to order you know a product in
00:00:47 00:00:50 the quantity of you don't want to ship
00:00:49 00:00:52 that directly to your customer you're
00:00:50 00:00:54 gonna want to go to a website like
00:00:52 00:00:57 Aliexpress so once again it really does
00:00:54 00:00:59 you know it depend on the you know
00:00:57 00:01:01 business model that you're in but I'm
00:00:59 00:01:04 gonna go the differences of what exactly
00:01:01 00:01:06 know Alibaba is what exactly Aliexpress
00:01:04 00:01:08 is and how you can use it to your
00:01:06 00:01:10 advantage in your online business to
00:01:08 00:01:12 make you the most money possible so
00:01:10 00:01:15 let's get right into it now starting
00:01:12 00:01:16 with Alibaba for those that don't know
00:01:15 00:01:18 what Alibaba is basically it's one of
00:01:16 00:01:20 the largest retail websites in the world
00:01:18 00:01:22 that allows you to be able to meet
00:01:20 00:01:25 suppliers from around the world that can
00:01:22 00:01:27 manufacture your product for you in bulk
00:01:25 00:01:28 so before we get into Aliexpress Alibaba
00:01:27 00:01:31 is gonna be your website where you're
00:01:28 00:01:33 ordering a singular product in bulk from
00:01:31 00:01:34 a supplier so instead of ordering you
00:01:33 00:01:36 know five or ten pieces or just one
00:01:34 00:01:39 piece you're gonna be ordering anywhere
00:01:36 00:01:42 from you know fifty thousand pieces as
00:01:39 00:01:43 many pieces as you need to get the price
00:01:42 00:01:45 point that's gonna leave you profitable
00:01:43 00:01:47 for whatever price point you're selling
00:01:45 00:01:48 it back on whichever website you're
00:01:47 00:01:51 selling on if it be you know Amazon or
00:01:48 00:01:53 Shopify or eBay so it's a great website
00:01:51 00:01:55 Tino going meat suppliers contact
00:01:53 00:01:57 multiple suppliers you know for example
00:01:55 00:01:59 this product a hidden camera light bulb
00:01:57 00:02:02 you can see there's multiple suppliers
00:01:59 00:02:03 selling the same model right here this
00:02:02 00:02:06 kind of white light bulb with the same
00:02:03 00:02:07 you know the same you know design on it
00:02:06 00:02:09 you're able to go through and you know
00:02:07 00:02:12 contact each supplier you know see their
00:02:09 00:02:13 past sales history they have a little
00:02:12 00:02:15 bit of information
00:02:13 00:02:18 on the front you know pictures you know
00:02:15 00:02:19 I usually ignore the price in the order
00:02:18 00:02:21 quantity because usually you need to
00:02:19 00:02:23 contact them first before they send you
00:02:21 00:02:25 like whatever they're thinking is I mean
00:02:23 00:02:27 two units I mean you're gonna probably
00:02:25 00:02:28 pay like 40 bucks if you order two units
00:02:27 00:02:31 buy them if you order 20 you can
00:02:28 00:02:32 probably get it down to 25 you order 50
00:02:31 00:02:34 I mean you can probably get it down the
00:02:32 00:02:36 20 it really just depends on the amount
00:02:34 00:02:39 that you're ordering from that supplier
00:02:36 00:02:40 so Alibaba is gonna be the site for you
00:02:39 00:02:43 if you're wanting to get the lowest
00:02:40 00:02:45 price point possible in order one
00:02:43 00:02:47 product in bulk one product in a large
00:02:45 00:02:49 quantity for instance you know private
00:02:47 00:02:50 labeling on Amazon you see that these
00:02:49 00:02:52 light bulbs are sewn really boy you
00:02:50 00:02:55 create your own listing you go over your
00:02:52 00:02:57 contact you know 10 suppliers you know
00:02:55 00:02:59 you go she ate with all 10 suppliers and
00:02:57 00:03:01 choose which one is gonna fit you the
00:02:59 00:03:02 best you know order 100 units for them
00:03:01 00:03:05 get it to Amazon boom you're ready to go
00:03:02 00:03:14 so Alibaba is a great place to go in
00:03:05 00:03:15 order one product in bulk also one thing
00:03:14 00:03:18 I wanted to get out of the way was that
00:03:15 00:03:19 shipping time is actually pretty fast
00:03:18 00:03:21 when it comes to ordering from these
00:03:19 00:03:22 different suppliers when you order from
00:03:21 00:03:24 them they give you a few different
00:03:22 00:03:26 options when it comes to shipping but
00:03:24 00:03:30 some of the most popular options or you
00:03:26 00:03:32 know DHL FedEx UPS and those are gonna
00:03:30 00:03:34 be anywhere from you know three to five
00:03:32 00:03:36 days in delivery time you know from
00:03:34 00:03:39 overseas so most of my manufacturers are
00:03:36 00:03:40 in China and when I order something from
00:03:39 00:03:43 them they should be no DHL you know
00:03:40 00:03:46 FedEx UPS I usually get it within three
00:03:43 00:03:48 to five days which is extremely quick in
00:03:46 00:03:50 my opinion because I mean I'm ordering a
00:03:48 00:03:52 large amount of inventory so the boxes
00:03:50 00:03:54 are big and there's a lot of boxes and
00:03:52 00:03:55 the shipping time is extremely quick so
00:03:54 00:03:57 a lot of people think that you know you
00:03:55 00:03:59 have to ship it overseas and that you're
00:03:57 00:04:00 gonna have to ship it on a boat and I
00:03:59 00:04:02 mean you can but that's gonna take like
00:04:00 00:04:03 a month or two months you're gonna have
00:04:02 00:04:05 to deal with you know freight forwarders
00:04:03 00:04:07 and a ton of paperwork but they handle
00:04:05 00:04:08 all that for you in the air shipping
00:04:07 00:04:10 it's actually a fairly cheap as well
00:04:08 00:04:13 depending on you know the size and
00:04:10 00:04:14 weight of your product so the second
00:04:13 00:04:17 website that you can profitably import
00:04:14 00:04:18 products from is going to be Aliexpress
00:04:17 00:04:21 now to simplify the explanation
00:04:18 00:04:23 basically Aliexpress serves as China's
00:04:21 00:04:25 eBay website where you can go and
00:04:23 00:04:26 purchase products for extremely cheap
00:04:25 00:04:28 and
00:04:26 00:04:30 quantity of one so when comparing
00:04:28 00:04:32 Alibaba and Aliexpress there are two
00:04:30 00:04:33 different websites with two different
00:04:32 00:04:35 reasonings when it comes to your
00:04:33 00:04:37 business model if you're looking for you
00:04:35 00:04:38 know you know drop shipping or just know
00:04:37 00:04:41 maybe testing and I'm and you don't want
00:04:38 00:04:42 to order huge quantities Aliexpress is
00:04:41 00:04:43 gonna be the website for you because I
00:04:42 00:04:45 mean you come on here and order a
00:04:43 00:04:47 product in one and depending on the
00:04:45 00:04:48 shipping price you can have that product
00:04:47 00:04:50 shipped directly to your customer for
00:04:48 00:04:52 you so drop shipping is extremely
00:04:50 00:04:54 extremely profitable business model it's
00:04:52 00:04:57 extremely really popular right now you
00:04:54 00:04:58 know on Shopify and eBay as well to
00:04:57 00:05:01 basically when you receive an order on
00:04:58 00:05:03 your website or on eBay for that product
00:05:01 00:05:05 you come back over to Aliexpress
00:05:03 00:05:07 purchase the exact product that pert
00:05:05 00:05:09 that customer purchased off your website
00:05:07 00:05:12 and have that supplier ship that product
00:05:09 00:05:14 directly to your customers address just
00:05:12 00:05:15 eliminating all of you know having the
00:05:14 00:05:17 order large quantities and things like
00:05:15 00:05:19 that so drop shipping is definitely you
00:05:17 00:05:21 know a really profitable model and
00:05:19 00:05:23 Aliexpress is the number one website
00:05:21 00:05:26 that people dropship products from so
00:05:23 00:05:28 when it comes to deciding which website
00:05:26 00:05:30 is more popular you know Alibaba or
00:05:28 00:05:32 Aliexpress it really does depend on the
00:05:30 00:05:33 business model that you are pursuing are
00:05:32 00:05:35 you drop shipping are you ordering
00:05:33 00:05:36 products and large quantities are you
00:05:35 00:05:38 just wanting to make some small test
00:05:36 00:05:42 doors it's really all up to you both
00:05:38 00:05:42 websites I've imported from below well
00:05:43 00:05:48 so when it comes to comparing Alibaba
00:05:46 00:05:50 verse Aliexpress you know which website
00:05:48 00:05:52 is more popular it really depends on the
00:05:50 00:05:54 business model that you're pursuing that
00:05:52 00:05:55 business model is really going to decide
00:05:54 00:05:58 on if you're needing to you know order
00:05:55 00:05:59 large quantity such as private label or
00:05:58 00:06:01 if you're just looking to purchase you
00:05:59 00:06:02 know kind of one-off products every once
00:06:01 00:06:04 in a while just ship to your customer so
00:06:02 00:06:06 you know drop shipping or you know
00:06:04 00:06:08 testing smaller quantities as well both
00:06:06 00:06:10 websites are extremely profitable I've
00:06:08 00:06:13 imported from both websites and have
00:06:10 00:06:14 great success with it um one thing about
00:06:13 00:06:16 Aliexpress I didn't mention earlier is
00:06:14 00:06:18 that the shipping times are a little bit
00:06:16 00:06:19 longer I'm you're not gonna be getting
00:06:18 00:06:21 you know the three to five day shipping
00:06:19 00:06:23 that you can purchase on you know
00:06:21 00:06:25 Alibaba it's gonna be II packet and
00:06:23 00:06:26 usually it takes anywhere from you know
00:06:25 00:06:29 twelve to twenty days to arrive to your
00:06:26 00:06:30 customer so make sure if you are you
00:06:29 00:06:32 know importing products from Aliexpress
00:06:30 00:06:34 your customer knows that so make sure
00:06:32 00:06:35 you put it in your description or let
00:06:34 00:06:36 them know that the shipping time is
00:06:35 00:06:38 going to be a little bit longer than
00:06:36 00:06:39 usual usually for the price there
00:06:38 00:06:42 the product that they're not really
00:06:39 00:06:44 gonna care when I've sold products and
00:06:42 00:06:45 you know imported from Aliexpress it's
00:06:44 00:06:47 never really been a huge problem the
00:06:45 00:06:48 shipping time it's just a little bit
00:06:47 00:06:49 longer than usual but that's something
00:06:48 00:06:52 that you just want to let your customers
00:06:49 00:06:53 know so that if they if they do know and
00:06:52 00:06:55 they receive their product you know 20
00:06:53 00:06:56 days after the order they're not gonna
00:06:55 00:06:57 be super angry but you know if they
00:06:56 00:06:59 order their product and it's been a week
00:06:57 00:07:00 you're like hey where's my product you
00:06:59 00:07:02 know I usually get my product anywhere
00:07:00 00:07:03 from the seven to ten days they're gonna
00:07:02 00:07:05 be a little bit angry so make sure you
00:07:03 00:07:07 let them know that the shipping time is
00:07:05 00:07:09 gonna be a little bit longer so in my
00:07:07 00:07:11 opinion Alibaba and Aliexpress are two
00:07:09 00:07:13 great websites that you can import from
00:07:11 00:07:14 I mean it really does depend on the
00:07:13 00:07:16 business model both are extremely
00:07:14 00:07:18 profitable I be important from both
00:07:16 00:07:20 websites as well I mean they're both
00:07:18 00:07:21 fairly easy to use I mean this winning
00:07:20 00:07:24 you're just editing in your credit card
00:07:21 00:07:25 information this one you can tons of
00:07:24 00:07:26 different ways you can pay you know you
00:07:25 00:07:28 can pay it through bank transfer you
00:07:26 00:07:30 know PayPal or you can pay you know on
00:07:28 00:07:33 Alibaba as well and so it's extremely
00:07:30 00:07:34 easy meaning go through and contact
00:07:33 00:07:36 different suppliers and see what the
00:07:34 00:07:38 different price points are you know what
00:07:36 00:07:39 models that have what colors what
00:07:38 00:07:41 variations they can make and it's a
00:07:39 00:07:43 great way for you to take advantage you
00:07:41 00:07:45 know differentiate yourself from your
00:07:43 00:07:47 competition so you're able to create a
00:07:45 00:07:50 more successful and more profitable
00:07:47 00:07:52 business if that be Amazon eBay Shopify
