How to Import and Fill AliExpress with Shopify

AliExpress is a popular platform for purchasing a wide variety of products at affordable prices. If you are a Shopify store owner looking to expand your product offerings, importing items from AliExpress can be a great opportunity. In this article, we will guide you through the process of importing and filling your Shopify store with products from AliExpress using the CJ Drop Shipping application.

Signing into AliExpress

To get started, you need to sign into your AliExpress account. Once you are signed in, navigate to the country and language settings to ensure that you are viewing the content that suits your needs. Keep the AliExpress page open as you move on to the next step.

Finding a dropshipper supplier

In order to sell products from AliExpress in your Shopify store, you have two options. The first is to use a dropshipper supplier, which is recommended if you want to handle order processing and fulfillment seamlessly. The second option is to simply add AliExpress reviews to your store. For the purpose of this guide, we will focus on using a dropshipper supplier.

Navigate to the "Apps and Sales Channel" section in your Shopify dashboard and access the Shopify App Store. Search for AliExpress-related applications, such as Drop Shipping or AliExpress Reviews. Look for applications with positive reviews and high ratings to ensure they are reliable and effective. Choose the best application for your needs and install it by following the prompts.

Installing the CJ Drop Shipping application

For this tutorial, we will be using the CJ Drop Shipping application. It is a widely used and highly rated application that allows you to import products from AliExpress directly into your Shopify store. Once you have found the CJ Drop Shipping application in the Shopify App Store, click on it to proceed with the installation.

Grant the necessary permissions for the application to access your Shopify store. This will enable seamless integration between CJ Drop Shipping and Shopify. Once the installation is complete, proceed to create an account with CJ Drop Shipping.

Creating an account with CJ Drop Shipping

Confirm your information and create your account.

Linking Shopify with CJ Drop Shipping

During the account creation process, you will be asked to specify the platform you are using for your store. Select Shopify as your platform. You will also be asked how many orders you need to process per day. If you are just starting out, choose the option that reflects your business's current situation. Finally, select the categories in which you will be selling products. You can choose from a wide range of options, including clothing, electronics, and accessories.

These answers will help CJ Drop Shipping in finding the most suitable products for your store. Once you have provided all the necessary information, the authorization process between Shopify and CJ Drop Shipping will be complete.

Importing products from AliExpress

With the integration set up, you can now import products from AliExpress directly into your Shopify store. CJ Drop Shipping acts as a bridge between your store and AliExpress, making it easy to add products to your inventory.

To find products, you can either search directly on AliExpress or use the CJ Drop Shipping platform. If you prefer to search on AliExpress, visit the website and search for the specific products you want to import. Once you find a product, copy its URL and head back to CJ Drop Shipping.

Paste the product URL into the search bar on CJ Drop Shipping and click on "Search". A list of products similar to your search will be displayed. Browse through the options and choose the product you want to import. Pay attention to the product details, ratings, and shipping information to ensure it meets your requirements.

Once you have selected a product, click on it to open the listing. Scroll to the top and click on "List" to add the product to your Shopify store. You will need to provide additional information, such as the product type, collection, and vendor. The recommended listing price will be automatically calculated based on the product cost and additional fees. Review the information and click "List" to finalize the import.

Verifying successful import

After listing the product, wait for a few minutes to ensure that the import process is completed successfully. Once the import is done, you can navigate to your Shopify dashboard and go to the "Products" section. Refresh the page if needed, and you should see the imported product listed. Click on the product to preview its appearance on your online store.

By importing products from AliExpress into Shopify using CJ Drop Shipping, you can easily expand your product catalog and offer a wider variety to your customers. All orders placed in your Shopify store will be automatically synced to CJ Drop Shipping, allowing for seamless order fulfillment.
