Your way to profit from the Ali Express site
Ali Express contains millions of products, how can you profit by selling these products.
The main and most important element of electronic commerce is the products, and after the presence of the site on Express, this task has become very easy, through the Ali Express website, you can choose some of the distinguished products and then display them on your online store after adding a profit margin, and you can choose between one of the two methods to implement this. Either drop shipping or create your own stock.
Why the Ali Express site
Ali Express is a giant marketplace that includes millions of products, which are mostly offered directly from the factory, which guarantees competitive prices and you can make profits very easily.
Through the Ali Express site, you can display the products on your online store, and then when you sell them you can order the product directly from the Ali Express site, and the site sends the product directly to the address of your customers without you needing to buy a special stock and worry about how to carry out the shipping and this is what is known as drop shipping Dropshipping
Not only that, if you are the adventurous type who wants to achieve profits of up to 400% of all commodities, through the Ali Express website, you can buy products in small quantities at an excellent price and free shipping in many cases, and the products will reach you directly and then you can offer These products are on your online store, which is known as creating your own inventory from the Ali Express website.
This method may seem to have great risks and of course it has some risks, but it is a limited risk. One of the advantages of the Ali Express site is the possibility of obtaining products at great prices without condition to buy large quantities, for example 10 pieces to 50 pieces of each product, and you can start with ten Cut from each product and start with 50 products at an average price of $ 5 for the product, meaning that the total amount invested in the products in this case will be $ 2,500, which is a small amount to start a profitable business compared to any other business project you might think of. What I have mentioned here is an example. You can start with a smaller or greater number of products, but we recommend that the number of products should not be less than ten, and that it does not initially exceed 50 products, and you should choose these products very carefully.
All products displayed on the Ali Express website contain high-quality images, so you do not need to photograph anything, and you can use these images on your store very easily.
There is no subscription or additional expenses that you need to pay to obtain these products. Only the price of the offered product, which, as mentioned, is a very competitive price.
And here a question appears, and it is.
Why do customers buy products from your store when they can buy directly from the Ali Express website
When selling products from the Ali Express website, your competitive advantage in this case is not the best price, or unique products, but it is to reach customers first. Yes, reaching customers first is a very strong competitive advantage.
Not only that, but good marketing and a good description of the product, especially in the Arabic language, is another added advantage.
Another thing is that the presence of millions of products on the Ali Express website may make it difficult to market it, and this is the role that you play, so you search for the best products in a specific field and then offer them directly to your customers on your online store and other marketing channels.
Another advantage is added to this feature, too, if you decide to use the stock method, which is the speed of delivery to the customer. It takes an average of 20 to 30 days for the product to be delivered to the customer in the Arab world through the Ali Express website. If you have chosen the method of creating the inventory, you will receive all the products. During this period, but you will display them on your store after they reach you, and in this case you will be able to send these products to your customer within a few days from 2 to 5 working days, depending on the shipping company you choose.
Create your online store
Now that we have explained the working methods and what the express site is, the time is now to set up your online store as a first step in setting up your own business.
Choose Niche Market's specialty and products
The first step in starting your online store, or in the sense of the health of your business, is to choose the specialty or what is known as the niche market, which is simply the type of products that you feel passionate to sell, and if you have not specified a specific niche market, the list of sections on the Ali Express site will help you with this.
For example, let's say you have chosen sneakers as your store's specialty, you will find products displayed this way.
You will find thousands of products. If any of these products you should choose !, here I will show some things that you can follow to choose the best products easily.
More than 300 requests: Look for products that have achieved more than 300 sales, this gives you some information. First, there is a demand for this product, secondly, that the seller is good, if not good, he would not sell this number of one product. And in order to get these products quickly, use the order according to the number of orders.
A rating of more than 4.5: It is also important to make sure of this product of appropriate quality, and this easily shows the evaluation given by those who bought this product from this supplier, and you will find this rating appears in the form of stars.
Seller evaluation of more than 2 diamonds: Ali Express makes a gradual evaluation of the seller and this evaluation ends with five diamonds. Make sure that you choose products from sellers who have at least 2 diamonds.
Low price with a chance to achieve a high profit margin: After all these evaluations, I recommend choosing products whose price ranges between 1 to 20 dollars, and this will allow you to add a good profit margin. For example, if you find a sports shoe with these advantages at a price of 10 dollars, you can sell it for 20 or 30 dollars And your price remains competitive and you have achieved a profit margin of more than 100% and the minimum profit margin is 75%. Do not choose any product that you cannot add a profit margin of more than 75%. And as we mentioned, if you use the stock creation method, you can achieve a profit margin of up to 400%. This is because you will get a discount when purchasing a quantity and also because you will save shipping expenses. I also recommend looking for products that have the possibility of free shipping in your country, which are many.
Many and high-quality images of the product: We also add to this list the selection of products that contain many and high-quality images that show the product from all angles and show its characteristics.
Add products to your online store
Once you have created your online store, you can now start adding the products that you have chosen, but slow down a little. What is not required here is just copying the product data as it is on the Ali Express website. If you want to put your store in a position of success, you must add the products carefully and To write your own and attractive product description, watch an explanation in the following video on how to do this in a great way.
How can you manage the dropshipping on the Ali Express website
The drop shipping from the Ali Express site is an easy matter, and in short, you make a purchase order for the product from the Ali Express site after it is purchased from your store and you enter your customer's address in the purchase order on the Ali Express site, and by this the product will be shipped directly from the merchant to your customer Without even you need to see it, but here we will explain the steps and mention some tips.
It is good for you to create an excel file in which you add these products that you have chosen and add them in your store. Just add the product name on your store, the purchase price from the Ali Express website, the selling price on your store and a direct link to the product, in this way it will be easy for you to access the product and Make a purchase order when you receive the order from the customer.
When making a purchase order, add in the comment what shows that you are doing drop shipping so that the merchant does not send with the order any offers or invoices, this is an example of this comment.
How to create inventory through the Ali Express website
As we explained, you can choose between the two methods, either creating inventory or drop shipping, each of which has its advantages and disadvantages, as we explained, and as we explained how to manage drop shipping, we also explain here how to manage and create inventory in an easy way.
After you choose the products, make separate orders for each product, and it is better to do this on the same day so that you receive all the products at close times, and as we mentioned, start with a small quantity ten pieces of each product in order to get acquainted with the best-selling products and after that you can re-order Of these products in larger quantities, and in this case, be sure to choose the products that have free shipping.
So what should you do with products that are not successful, i.e. products that have not sold all of their quantities? The matter is simply the offers (discounts) as we mentioned through this method, you can achieve a profit margin of up to 400%, but some products will not achieve success, in this case you have to make gradual discounts on these products and market them in known ways until you sell them All of them, and you can do these reductions gradually until they reach the cost price or less, this will not be considered a loss in this case, as the total amount invested is what is calculated from it, for example.
If you buy 500 pieces of different products at a cost of $ 2,500 and some of these products have achieved success, then most of these products will take care of the profit from the total, for example, if you sell 100 pieces with a profit of 300%, your total profits in this case will be approximately $ 3000, meaning that you have already made a profit out of the original The amount before selling the remainder of the quantity, and thus selling the remaining products at any price becomes profitable, and so on, and so you can gradually build your business and enlarge your project. But of course, after you sell these products that did not achieve success, do not buy back these products and you should focus only on the products that achieve success and a high profit margin.
Important note: If you are in a country that adds customs or taxes on products, you should familiarize yourself with these customs and taxes and also make sure that these products are allowed to enter your country.
