Can I open an Etsy store and dropship items from AliExpress?

By | May 2, 2022

Dropshipping from AliExpress to Etsy is prohibited. Why? Because goods need to be handmade, vintage, or a craft supply. For example, if you’re selling a t-shirt, the design on the t-shirt must’ve been created by you. While some sellers have been able to sneak their way in, often by having their own custom photos, you’re still not allowed to dropship on Etsy. And getting caught could have you banned from the platform.

So is dropshipping on Etsy allowed? If you’re running a print on demand dropshipping store where you design your own products, yes. If you’re dropshipping products that you did not create or design, no.

But you can still get more product inspiration in aliexpress, and excellent products can get the biggest sale no matter where they are. However, due to Etsy’s policy, you need to make appropriate modifications to these products to make them your own products.

When conducting product research on aliexpress, I often search from two aspects. On the one hand, there are popular stores, and on the other hand, the ranking of popular products.

SellerCenter is a store tracking tool. You can view the store status of aliexpress, shopify, Amazon and other platforms. Here you can quickly find excellent competitor stores based on the rankings. For example, the following is the excellent baby aliexpress I found Shop. You can quickly enter the shop to view its product information.

Another popular product tool is FindNiche. I can quickly view all kinds of interesting products. There are a lot of filters here, so you can quickly query the data you need. For example, I can filter products based on information such as country, sales quantity, category, etc. This is very convenient.
