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.
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:
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:
To use the above-mentioned functions you need to install this application. Read below how to do it.
There are two ways how to start working with the application:
а) Shopify store
If you already have an online store, download the app from the Shopify App Store. You can do this by clicking on the link and the Add app button.
b) No Shopify store
In this case, you should follow the link, enter your email address in the appropriate field and click the Get started button. Doing this way, you will also need to create and connect a Shopify store.
The second stage is setting up the basic parameters of the Aliexpress download apps, such as Shipping, Tracking, Notification, Pricing Rule, Other.
Setting the shipping
Automatic selection of the shipping method can be configured in two ways. In the General Settings section, you can configure automatic selection of the shipping depending on the country of destination, and in the Advanced setting section, depending on the time and/or cost of shipping.
This parameter allows you to configure automatic selection of the shipping based on the country of destination.

This option allows you to configure automatic selection of the method of goods shipping based on the cost and time of shipping.
This method contains the following settings.

You can activate the option of receiving notifications of the goods out of stock, changes of the goods’ price and canceling an order on Aliexpress. You just need to select the corresponding checkbox next to the description of each of the above-mentioned options.
You can configure the rules by which the cost of the goods that you import into Shopify using DSers will be automatically set.
To access the Other settings, you need to go to Settings > Other.
Sync Ali order number to Shopify additional details - you can activate an option that will allow DSers to automatically add a buyer's order number from Aliexpress to the order page in your Shopify store.
Leave a message to AliExpress sellers - You can add a message that will be automatically sent to the seller of the goods on Aliexpress when you place an order.
Override phone number - You can add a phone number that will automatically replace the phone number that your customer indicated.
Order synchronization - this feature will allow you to transfer orders from your Shopify store to DSers, so as not to process them manually. By default, DSers synchronizes orders created in your Shopify store for the last 7 days, but you can also change the number of days (maximum 30 days). Orders are synchronized only once for each of the stores you have added. After synchronization, this option will be unavailable until the new store is connected to the system.
For automatic arrangement of several orders at the same time (up to 100 orders at a time) you need:
You can import your products in two ways:
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.
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.
After clicking on this button, a window will open in which you can view all selected orders.
Also in this window, you can check which shipping method is selected for each order and, if necessary, change it.
Just press the confirm button.
All your orders are processed. You just have to click OK.
DSers gives you a unique opportunity to pay up to 90 orders at a time. This feature will be helpful during periods of sales, promotions, etc.
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.
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.
