Nowadays, there is a number of applications that allow the user to create his own online store working on dropshipping.

The most famous and popular among them are Oberlo and Dropified. These apps allow you to import products from Aliexpress to the Shopify store. You can also set up automatic ordering. However, there are always some cons. And speaking about Oberlo and Dropified, we mean the time you need to process your orders. With all their advantages, you will process just from 40 to 70 orders per hour. But you can process much more orders within the same time using the DSers application. Below you can read what pros it has and how to use it.

Why is DSers helpful for dropshippers?

DSers application functions for importing goods from Aliexpress to your Shopify store

DSers is the official Aliexpress app developed in 2018. It is the official Aliexpress shopping app for dropshipping. Unlike Oberlo and Dropified, it is free and has the following features:

  • goods import from Aliexpress;
  • placing bulk orders;
  • automatic fulfillment of orders;
  • unlimited orders per month;
  • pre-configured delivery methods;
  • automatic synchronization of tracking numbers;
  • delivery tracking;
  • price and stock control;
  • daily synchronization of goods;
  • managing multiple stores from a single DSers account.

In addition to the features listed above, you get access to a new section in your Aliexpress account - the Dropshipping Center. In this section, you have three new tabs:

  • Hot DS Items - in this section you can see the products recommended by DSers;
    section Hot DS Items in DSers application
  • Trusted Supplier Rank - in this tab you will find a rating of reliable suppliers;
    section Trusted Supplier Rank in DSers application
  • Product Analysis - due to this section, you can insert a link to the product from Aliexpress and see the product description, store name, logistics reliability as well as the number of orders.

Import your goods to DSers

For automatic arrangement of several orders at the same time (up to 100 orders at a time) you need:

  1. either to import the goods from Aliexpress using DSers;
  2. or to link the goods which are already placed in the Shopify store to the goods that you sell on Aliexpress.

You can import your products in two ways:

  1. by going to the My Products page and importing the product you are interested in by adding a link to the appropriate field;
    import goods to your Shopify store using the link with Aliexpress
  2. Install the DSers extension for the Chrome browser and import the product you need by clicking Add to DSers.

Get the suppliers linked to the goods

In order to link the products that are already in your Shopify store to the products on Aliexpress, you should go to the My Products page and click the Add Suppliers button. To do that, you will need a link to the goods that are sold on Aliexpress, so that further you will be able to place orders in automatic mode.

How to get the suppliers linked to the goods

Supplier settings

  1. Set - This option allows you to specify which of the sellers is a primary one and which is optional. To link an additional seller, you must first add the main one. You can choose an additional seller when the main one does not have all the goods you need. You can make changes at any time while the data in your Shopify store will remain unchanged.
  2. Mapping - You can match your Shopify product options with product options on Aliexpress.
  3. Set shipping - this option allows you to specify the shipping method for this particular product and it certainly prevails over all other shipping method settings.
  4. Place multiple orders with this product - using this function, you can select and place only those orders in which the selected product is present.
  5. Import - you can import products using the link to the product.

Registration of several orders and payment for them

Instead of placing orders one by one, you can select all pending orders and complete them all at once simply by clicking the Place multiple orders button.

How to place a few orders and pay for them

Place multiple orders

After clicking on this button, a window will open in which you can view all selected orders.

Comparison with the competitors

Above, we briefly described the main features offered by DSers, but before drawing final conclusions, let’s compare the functionality of this Aliexpress shopping app with the functionality of such competitors as Oberlo and Dropified.

Conclusions

DSers is the application that helps you save your time on performing routine actions. This is not a new application used by the dropshippers, but at the moment there is surely no better analog. Even with the free version of DSers, its functionality is as high as its competitors’ and has no inherent limitations. This Aliexpress application for employment has such unique features that no other similar app can boast with. Saving both your time and effort is the main benefit you get from using it. That is why we highly recommend this app, as we personally use it all the time. If you want to know more about it or any other eCommerce news, please, let us know.
