Why should we choose Aliexpress?

Everyone knows that one of the most important steps you have to take when dropshipping is choosing a supplier. Among so many options, today we’d like to discuss one of the most preferred suppliers among dropshippers – Aliexpress.

Why Aliexpress?
If you are just starting your dropshipping journey, Aliexpress is probably the best option for you. In order to boost your Ebay account, you have to make frequent sales and maintain a positive feedback. Using Aliexpress as a supplier, you can choose among huge inventory of low-priced items.
The profits you will make will not be high on each sale, it will be quantity over quality, but you have to remember hat consistency is key.

Things to keep in mind:

It’s recommended that you choose carefully the supplier whose products you are planning to sell. It’s a good idea to order samples, so that you can see yourself the product you are selling. Although we believe that the “chinese quality” popular opinions are just myths, as most of the suppliers from Aliexpress are offering good quality products, it won’t hurt to do a little research. Also keep an eye on the feedback of the suppliers, as this is a way to guarantee the quality of the items. On the bright side – even if a customer is not satisfied with the quality of the product, the loss would not be that much of a problem.

When it comes to AliExpress dropshipping, lots of the suppliers who you’ll be interacting with will be Chinese, which means that their English isn’t always perfect. However, you can always contact the suppliers in advance to get a sense of their level of proficiency before doing business with them.
Larger suppliers are typically quite responsive as they’ll have sales teams managing your orders and can answer your questions via live chat or email.

Shipping is a delicate matter when dealing with China. Your task is to define your shipping policy, and then display it on your listing to set clear customer expectations. With the commonly favored ePacket delivery option, it typically takes only 7-14 days for a package to reach the US from China. In addition, some suppliers keep their most popular products in US warehouses, which will mean your delivery will be even quicker.
Also, it’s crucial that you provide excellent customer service while the item is being shipped and delivered. For example, contact the customer right after the order has been placed, again when the item is shipped (with tracking number so they can track the package) and finally when the order is received, so you can ask if they are satisfied with their purchase. We all love to get attention and feel important, so they will surely stop by to leave a positive feedback or/and buy something from us again! 🙂

Advantages:

One of the advantages of Aliexpress is that most of the items contain variations – different sizes and colors. We know that this is a great thing for all dropshippers, as most clients are more likely to buy your item if it has variations. It’s a common thing on Aliexpress for all variations to be priced the same, which is even cooler. With our newly released Listing builder v3, you can list variations and change the profit margins for each variation, meaning that you can sell different colors for higher price. For example, if we are selling a purse, it’s most likely for a woman to want the red one (so that it goes well with the red shoes, that she has recently bought 🙂 ) and be willing to pay a bit more just to get it in that color. Let’s not forget that we are being charged by ebay for only 1 listing, however we are selling multiple items. Don’t forget to check out the other new features in our Listing Builder v3 as listing variations is only one of them. 🙂

It’s a common opinion that while Aliexpress has such huge inventory, you don’t have to worry about the item becoming out of stock. This is not 100% true, since a hot selling item might become out of stock quite quickly. Although it would be restocked in a few days, no one would enjoy the shock of finding out that they have sold an out of stock item. Then again, these are things that you simply don’t have to worry about when using WSG to dropship from Aliexpress. We check for stock/price changes on hourly basis and update your item accordingly.

Choosing an Ebay template:
As we’ve discussed, due to the long handling time that your customers will have to face, you will need to be using an Ebay template that has the shipping time clearly specified in it, so that there are not misunderstandings. WSG offers a lot of different templates that we can adjust to your liking. Just pop up a message in our Live chat. 🙂 You can also create your own template, if you’d like.

Some tips while dropshipping from Aliexpress:
To exploit to maximum you can use Cash back service. Everytime you will order the products for your buyers from aliexpress, the cashback service will give you back up to 18% if you buy from your cashback account.

Aliexpress has a lot of products, but keep in mind that you need to choose the most profitable products to dropship.
When searching products, try to search keywords like ,,As seen on TV’’ ,,trending 2019′’ ,,top 2019′’ ,,best selling’’. Try to look for Chinese brands like Xiaomi, LETV, Meizu.
Don’t forget to always use faster shipping method, for UK, USA costumers Epacket is the best.
Try your best to market products as best as possible, set nice pictures, good descriptions, add as many item’s specifics as you can. All these things will surely pay off.

Listing Builder v.3: How to list variations in eBay, how to make draft listings, and how to Schedule your listings

Recently we have released the new version of the Listing Builder. We’ve been working on some really useful new features that we believe our clients will enjoy using. We are going to discuss them in the following article.

  1. Listing with variations is now available through WSG

Variation listings are often preferred by many ebay sellers. We all know that while shopping, having a lot of choices regarding size, color, material, etc. is a lot more convenient than having only 1 option. That often results in customers buying more than one piece of the item that you are selling, which boosts your views/sales history and you end up being shown in the Ebay search page. A variation listing on Ebay, despite of having for example 5 different variations, is counted as one single listing, therefore the fees that we are paying are less than what we’ve would have to pay if we list the items individually. We sell more and pay less fees, isn’t that cool?
These are some of the advantages of listings with variations. Keeping these things in mind, we have developed the new version of the Listing Builder, which allows you to create your cool variation listings through our platform. It’s simple, quick and customer-friendly.

Here you can take a look at our step-by-step tutorial:

2. Bundle listings

Bundle listings are items sold together in one listings. This is where you can let your imagination thrive and try to combine items that you believe your customers will find useful to be bought together. From bed sheets combined with pillows, a table combined with a set of chairs, kitchen supplies, to automotive parts that go well together… just anything that comes to mind! Bundle listings are a way to smash the competition and win over the customers. It’s actually quite easy to find out what customers are usually buying together if you look at the amazon section “Frequently bought together”. It’s a very easy way for beginners to be profitable.
You can create your unique Bundle listings easily with the Listing Builder v3.

3. Schedule listings via WSG

With this feature you can load up as many listings as you like, save them as draft and decide when exactly you would like them to be listed on Ebay. Some days you just don’t have enough time to spend listing items. This option is quite convenient to keep your business running, even when you cannot afford hours spent at the computer. Or if you simply don’t want your items to be listed at the same time. Just choose which items you want to list, choose when, and you are all set.

We still have a lot of new features coming soon, some of which are : an Auto-order, function, Realtime Tracking, ability to sell on Amazon… and many more! Stay tuned.


Happy 4th Birthday to WSG!

We’re turning 4. It’s our birthday – but the celebration is for you!


Four years ago, it all started out with a dream. A dream to create something that will make it so much easier to manage your dropshipping business. After months of hard work and dedication, WSG came to life to become the best tool on the market. Today we have customers from all over the world and the best part is that we all share a common bond – we all chased a dream, took a risk and worked our hardest everyday to make it happen.
We are super excited to be 4 years on the market. The past year has been really a blessing. We have expanded our team, moved to a new office, released a lot of new and super useful features…And we are not even thinking about stopping. The team is motivated and ready to keep up the good work.
Our birthday wish is to only become better, to make our customers happy and to assist them in enlarging their business to become more and more successful.
Of course, what is a birthday without a proper party? We always love having one of these. 😉 This is how it went …





Teambuilding journey…

People call it TeamBuilding. We just call it spending time with friends… 🙂

We recently went on a little trip in the beautiful nature of Bulgaria. 27881_650__5

We spent three days away from the technology that is a big part of our everyday life. Experiences such as this one are really valuable. The only thing that mattered during these days was our team and the relationships that we have with one another.

Being part of a team is not easy, but it is worth the effort. When you think about it, you spend more time with your colleagues than with your family and friends. So we strongly believe that what makes our life more beautiful, is being friends with the people you work with and this is what we strive for.

Being in work environment, you don’t always have time to get to know the people you work with as much as you wish you do. This is exactly what these events are made for. We are really glad that we had the chance to do that!
We discovered a lot of things about each other that we didn’t know before. We had the opportunity to share and get closer.
Very interesting activities took place and they made us realize how important each one of us and what makes us so colorful and bright are the colors that each one has to offer to the whole. 🙂

Isn’t this precious? It represents our team and our personalities – creative, loving… and a little bit crazy?! 🙂 We love us just the way we are.

We now know that if only one of us is not there, nothing would be the same. The connection that we have between us is what keeps up the good work and we did realize that…

We came back from this journey not the same as we were before.
We are not a team…We are family! 

New home…

WSG family has a new home! And that’s not all

Everyone knows that New Year means New Beginning. And we are kicking off 2019 with a Big Change..
