How To Find The Best Selling Products For Shopify Drop Shipping?
Finding trending or best selling product is an important part of running a drop shipping / online store because trending or best-selling products increases the chance of getting sales. So in this article, I will try to give you a few ways to find the best selling products.
Steps To Find The Best Selling Products
1) AliExpress Weekly Best Selling
AliExpress used to give a “Best-Selling” option, just below the search box but recently they’ve removed that option from their homepage and made it difficult to access that page. Then They’ve added a new sub-domain https://best.aliexpress.com to find the best selling products but this new link is also useless.
You can access the best selling products page by visiting the below link:
You’ll also find a “Hot-Products” section just beside the “Best-Selling” section. “Hot-Products” section will allow you to see the list of fastest selling products by category.
2) AliExpress Best Selling Products By Niche
Finding Best-Selling products by niche is best for those dropshipping store, which is specially targetted to a specific niche.
Go To AliExpress and Search for any niche then click Orders to see the most number of ordered products by niche.
As you can see in the above screenshot, I searched for “Sunglasses Women” and filtered it by Orders. You can follow this step to find products for any niches because this works every time.
3) AliExpress Best Selling Products By Category
Go To AliExpress and Select Category from the left side menu.
Then click Orders to see the most number of ordered (Best-Selling) products by category.
You can also select the sub-category from the left menu to check the most number of ordered products by sub-category.
4) Amazon Best Seller
Amazon’s Best Seller is also a great way to find the best selling product. Amazon’s best selling product will also sell well in your Shopify Store because Amazon.com is the world’s biggest e-commerce platform.
Go To Amazon’s Best Seller section and filter the product category to find the best selling product.
5) Google Trends & Keyword Planner
Google Trends is another killer way to find the best selling products for your Shopify Store. You can just go to Google Trends and type the niche then it will show you the popularity of that particular niche. Google Trends also allows you to filter the trends by Region, Duration, Category and Search Type(Web Search, Image Search, YouTube Search, etc).
And, By using Google Trends you can also compare the multiple niche/products. For example, I compared Bracelet, Earrings, and Necklace. As you can see in the below screenshot, Google Trends is showing that Bracelet and Necklace are more popular compared to Earrings.
Alternatively, you can use the Google Keyword Planner Tool to check the popularity of the product. This tool allows you to see the number of search by month or year and This will also show you the competition of the keyword in High, Medium or Low.
6) Social Media
You already know that Instagram is one of the most popular photos and video sharing social networking site.
Go to Instagram and search for a Hashtag related to your niche. For example, I searched for #Hoodies and you can see in the below screenshot that #Hoodies has more than 1,727,995 posts.
Then I opened the first post and you can see that the post has got more than 3400 likes in just one day. And, That Instagram account has less than 2500 followers, which is a good sign because normally account with a low number of followers don’t get so many likes.
Then, I searched on the AliExpress and you can see in the below screenshot that the exact hoodies are available on AliExpress for less than $15 with free shipping.
Other Social Media
Actually, Other social media platform like Facebook, Twitter, etc. doesn’t offer the search function like Instagram. However, you can use a third party service Buzzsumo to search your niche but the free version of Buzzsumo allows to search only for past one years (not for a month, week or day).
As you can see in the above screenshot, two product or store has more than 12K likes, which means that the product is very popular. So, you can just import the same product to your Shopify Store.
