AliExpress to eBay Dropshipping – The Complete Guide

Mihai-Alexandru Cristea 25/01/2022 | 15:44

Those familiar with AliExpress know that this is profitable for people looking to become business people. In essence, they follow the dropshipping process wherein they help customers receive the products in demand and profit. The prospect may seem well and good for some, but there is also the matter of expanding your “business”.


You don’t have to be a businessman to know that the best thing to do for business is to expand your buying and selling capabilities. By doing this, you increase the probability of sales and profit. One of the best ways is dropshipping from aliexpress to ebay.

Nevertheless, there is quite a lengthy process to follow before doing this.


Setting Up & Managing Payments

Of course, setting up your eBay account is essential as this is the foundation of earning your money. After all, this is the reason why you’re doing this.

Nevertheless, you need to create and verify your account with personal information. Those with pre-existing eBay accounts should use this instead as reviews and returns make or break the service. Assuming all of these are positive, customers will see you as trustworthy, leading to more potential customers. This is important to any store trying to establish itself as a worthy competitor in the market.

There is also the matter of payment processing and receiving. Fortunately, Payoneer’s service is partners with eBay, which makes everything more straightforward for the businessman.


Mirroring AliExpress Dropshipping Terms

Another vital part of running a business is establishing a consistent service for your customers. For example, AliExpress and eBay are different “marketplaces” that customers visit, and naturally, eBay needs to do everything to keep their market safe.

Some adjustments need to happen in the store terms and policies. Essentially, you need to state that the rules you are using are AliExpress. This may seem confusing and unnecessary to someone, but these hold some benefits. For the “drop shipper”, a service clearly stating the terms that they are following will embody consistency, therefore, presenting trustworthiness. For eBay, their service is both established and protected.


Making Money

After the somewhat lengthy mirroring step, people are now ready to make money. This, of course, follows the dropshipping process.

However, finding out what to sell and taking requests from close friends or family members can only get you so far. You would now think that research is vital for this purpose, and you would be right. However, this takes up too much time, and you would probably spend more time researching than earning.

Despite this, eBay has ZIK Analytics which does all the research, and it will show you what products on AliExpress are in-demand. As with business, those needed or wanted most earn the most money.

However, this step in the process requires patience because there is still a lot to do. Once fulfilled, ZIK will help you add the supplier to your account. By fulfilling all of the information needed, you are now ready for some orders.

Gathering Your Information

The first thing to look at here is the product’s information, which includes more than names and price tags. The information provided states the number of sales within the past month and their monthly income. The idea is that you want to find a product that sells and how much competition they are currently facing.

Location Is Important

While these seem simple enough, there is also finding where the supplier is based. The reason why we want to do this is to find out more about their shipping terms. Shipping terms vary from one company to another, and you want to find one that fits your budget.

Naturally, the best terms are those that don’t have shipping fees, but smaller amounts are alright as well. However, shipping fees that are too expensive for you may not be the best course of business.


Why So Much Work?

With all of these steps, this may seem like a hassle for you to do. But, truthfully, this is way better than you think. Consider the flexibility that you have in your hands. One is a freelancer that works in his own time, free from the 9 to 5 job.

This business is also flexible regarding what you can sell, making everything all the more lucrative for people. Money following demand is an age-old business philosophy, and it applies most in e-commerce. Your sales are unaffected as your business flows and mixes with demand seamlessly.
