When you get an order, you should redirect it to AliExpress supplier. If you don’t have any automated solutions, you should place the orders manually.
So, you should visit AliExpress to purchase the item from the supplier. When placing your order, enter your customer’s name and shipping address and let the AliExpress seller handles the rest.
The seller's details can be found in the Products section. In Supplier info tab there are links to the product on AliExpress and to the store.
Suppliers' details for all products can also be viewed in Product analysis tab (Import Products - View Details - Product analysis). Here you get a link to the product and the supplier’s store on AliExpress. To view this info, you should have AliDropship Chrome extension installed and be logged into your AliExpress account.
When ordering on AliExpress, leave a message for the seller on checkout telling that you are a dropshipper. Write something like this: “Hello, we’re dropshipping. Please don’t put any invoices, promotions or branded materials in the shipments. Thank you!”
Depending on the supplier’s processing time, you’ll receive an email notifying that your order has been shipped.
