Choosing the right provider
It’s hard to find the right supplier for a product. It takes time, research, and sometimes trial and error to find a reliable supplier who can give you quality products, reliable shipping, a steady stock, and safe fulfillment. There are different ways to look for products on AliExpress or with Dropship Empire, each with its own pros and cons. Let’s look at them and give you some tips on how to find the best suppliers and products to sell in your online dropshipping store.’
Search by hand
This is simple, and most people do this when they search for a product. Just go to the AliExpress website and type in the name of a product. On the page that shows the search results, there will be a long list of products from different sellers that match your search terms.
Even though this way of looking for products is easy and makes sense, it is hard to tell which suppliers and products are the best and most reliable. At first, you would have to click on a product to see what other buyers have said about it. This is to make sure that the seller can be trusted and to find out what other people think about the quality of the product. You will also need to check each supplier’s rating and number of sales on its own. Even though you can’t always trust the supplier rating, it is a good sign. If you want to be sure that the products you sell are good, you shouldn’t trust any suppliers with less than 4.5 stars. In the same way, the number of sales gives you a good idea of how well the supplier can provide the product and handle a high number of sales.
It’s also a good idea to see if a certain seller has a page or store on AliExpress with a list of the other things he has for sale. So, if you find a supplier with good reviews, a lot of sales, and someone you think you can trust, you can think about selling more of their products and maybe even start a business relationship with them.

With the Find Suppliers feature, you can see a list of suppliers with a track record of sales and a higher rating based on big data analysis from AliExpress and dropship-empire.
When you first access the feature, you can choose a first product. All of those are AliExpress products, and just like we said before, you can search for specific products by hand. You can also sort the products by some basic categories. For example, you can only see suppliers with warehouses in the US or products for pets. You can also sort the list of results by the number of orders, the newest products, or the prices. This will make it easier for you to find the right provider for you.
All of the products come from suppliers who have already sold and shipped products to other dropshippers. If any of the suppliers on this list didn’t complete an order, they would be taken off this list.
