What to sell in your drop shipping store for a good profit?

“What to sell in my store?”

This is question that we get more and more often. To help our clients, readers and subscribers, we’ve decided to launch a new series of articles. Here, you will find lists and descriptions of various AliExpress items that are good for drop shipping!

Each and every person who plans to open a drop shipping store has the same question: which items are the best choice? What products to sell in this store? How to evaluate AliExpress offers and pick the greatest ones?

Look at this example and follow it!

What to sell: specifying a product niche

A niche choice is the first step you’re making before deciding on the product range.

For a fully functioning drop shipping store, we strongly recommend you to evaluate its potential in terms of items availability and opportunities for promotion, and also check the competition. These steps are essential to guarantee good store performance.

For this educational example, we decided to skip these steps and simply choose items widely used by PC and laptop users. What would be the specific features of this niche?

  • It is not narrowly specified: these items are not exclusively sold to gamers or to IT professionals etc., these are regular basic products that can come in handy for any kind of PC or laptop user.
  • People who might get interested in computer-related stuff are, most likely, spending some of their time working/entertaining with technology and browsing the Web. This is why online shopping is not an unfamiliar concept for them: they have trust in webstores, so they won’t be scared or confused while buying something from such a store.

In other words, it is a promising type of product category because this store will be aimed on a broad target audience that has some experience or background knowledge in online shopping.

So what can we offer our potential buyers?

What to sell: choosing items on AliExpress

We consider AliExpress to be the best supply platform for dropshippers. It offers plenty of items in multiple product categories, and these items are typically sold for a very low price.

Still, it doesn’t mean that we can randomly take any product from AliExpress and import it to a drop shipping store! We carefully select the most appealing items and make sure they meet the following criteria:

  • Free shipping

If an AliExpress seller doesn’t charge anything for this item delivery, the cost of purchasing this product, obviously, gets lower. Zero shipping costs are always an appealing factor for online shoppers.

  • High product rating

If the product has a rating of 4 stars or higher, it means that the buyers are generally satisfied with the item’s quality and the seller’s communication. It is highly important to pick products with good rating: if you ignore this field, you can’t be 100% sure that you’ve chosen worthy items from a reputable seller. You certainly don’t want to resell low quality stuff to your clients!

  • Enough orders

Typically, we sort AliExpress items by orders: this way, items with the biggest amount of orders are shown first. It helps us pay attention to the most frequently bought items: usually, these bestsellers are offered by sellers with a long positive history of working on AliExpress, which is why we can safely resell these products in a drop shipping store.

  • Reasonable price

Of course, this parameter heavily depends on the type of the item. Still, the general rule is the following: the lower the price, the more likely a store visior is to place an order. If a product is expensive, it’s often hard for a potential buyer to make a decision, especially if the item itself or the store are unfamiliar. You can make your store visitor more comfortable with making a decision if you provide enough social proof (for example, with the help of this illustrative add-on), but remember that the price is an important decision-making factor.

So, after taking all these considerations into account, we selected 20 affordable and demanded AliExpress items that are appealing for a wide circle of buyers. Let’s take a look at them !

You really rock! Keep up the good work Olga. I don’t know someone should check out my store two month since and still unable to make a sale. guicque.com

    I took a look at your store, I can see that you products do not fill any kind of niche and there are very few items in your store. You also do not appear to have made valid business decisions about which products to sell or a pricing policy because I noticed that your prices are not competitive which suggests you are trying to make large margins on fewer products rather than modest margins on more products. I’d start by choosing a real niche and then listing the best selling products in that niche. That would be a good start. If your target market is native english speakers then it can make an incredible difference to tidy up the spelling in the product descriptions as most Aliexpress descriptions are very poor English.

    Good luck, but you need to put some effort in before you can expect results.
