How to Add Products to Your Dropshipping Store and Fulfill an Order

In this tutorial, I will guide you through the process of adding products to your dropshipping store and fulfilling an order. Many people often struggle with setting up and automating this process, but I assure you that it is easier than you think. So let's get started!

Step 1: Setting up a Shopify Store

To begin, go to and sign up for a 14-day free trial. It's completely free and will give you access to all the necessary tools for your dropshipping business. Once you've signed up, name your store and skip the remaining questions.

Step 2: Adding the De-essers App

Now, we will add an app called De-essers to our Shopify store. De-essers acts as a middleman between Aliexpress and Shopify, making it easier to import products. Click on the "Apps" tab and search for De-essers in the Shopify app store. Click on the first result and install the app. Create an account with De-essers if you haven't done so already.

Step 3: Importing Products to Your Store

De-essers has Aliexpress directly built into the app, allowing you to import products easily. Start by searching for a winning product on Aliexpress. Once you've found a product you want to import, click on "Add to import list." Then, go to the import list and click on "Edit Product" to make any necessary changes to the product details, such as the price and description.

Step 4: Finding Winning Products

If you're unsure what makes a winning product, I recommend watching my previous video on this topic. It provides valuable insights and three free methods to find winning products effectively.

Step 5: Customizing Product Details

When importing products from AliExpress to your Shopify store, De-essers transfers all the product pictures, descriptions, and prices automatically. However, you can still make adjustments within Shopify if needed. You can change the product name, price, description, and other details to suit your store's branding.

Step 6: Fulfilling an Order

Once you receive your first sale, it's time to fulfill the order. Install the De-essers Chrome extension, which allows you to import products directly from Aliexpress. This extension adds a button to the Aliexpress product page, making it easy to import products to your De-essers app.

Step 7: Installing the De-essers Chrome Extension

To fulfill the order, go to the De-essers app and click on "Open Orders." You will see the order that needs to be fulfilled. Click on "Shipping Settings" and toggle on "Aliexpress Standard Shipping" for global shipping. Save the settings, then confirm the order. The product will be shipped directly from Aliexpress to the customer's address provided during the checkout process.

Step 8: Importing Products from Aliexpress

With the De-essers Chrome extension installed, you can import products from Aliexpress directly to the De-essers app. When browsing Aliexpress, click on the "Add to De-essers" button next to the "Buy Now" option. This will automatically import the product to the De-essers app for further customization.

Step 9: Fulfilling an Order with De-essers

Once you have a sale, you can fulfill the order through the De-essers app. Go to the "Open Orders" page, select the order, and check the shipping settings. Confirm the order, and De-essers will handle the rest, including shipping the product to the customer and providing tracking information.

That's it! You've successfully added products to your dropshipping store and learned how to fulfill orders. Remember, always keep an eye out for winning products and make adjustments to suit your store's needs. Good luck with your dropshipping journey!
