Alibaba and AliExpress are two of the biggest online market places in the world. The main difference is that Alibaba focuses on wholesale, while AliExpress is for retail. Most of the sellers are on both platforms, but with different target markets.
Today, you will learn not only how to find the best sellers in the platform, but also the top products for different categories. We will focus on the AliExpress website, but you can do the same steps in Alibaba.
How Do You Look for the Best-Selling Products and Sellers on Alibaba & AliExpress?
The items you see on the website are all random. There is no single button that will show you the top sellers or the top products unless you do the research yourself.
In this section, you will learn how to find the best products in AliExpress based on sales and rating.
- Sales – this refers to the number of items sold by the seller; the more items sold, the more likely it is to be a hot product
- Rating – AliExpress and Alibaba use a 5-star rating, with 5 being the highest. On the website, you can see all sorts of items, but you can actually use the filter option to show you only those that have the best ratings.
Step 1: Go to AliExpress and choose a category
Step 2: Drill down further and choose a more specific category
Step 3: Type the item name and click search; we will use the green dress in this example
Step 4: Look for the checkbox that says 4 Stars and up.
As you can see, the content of the display is going to change after ticking the 4 Stars and Up box. From here, you can narrow down your search. Furthermore, you can arrange the products by descending order if you click the Orders button beside best Match.
Of you do this, the website will show you a product line-up starting from the one that has the most items sold.

I suggest that you ask about branding or packaging, or which shipping options they use. Ask carefully about their return and refund policy. Make sure that you cover all your bases, and you will succeed.
Finally, check if the product appears in your dropship supplier tools, such as Oberlo or Spocket. If not, you have to get an AliExpress plugin that shows all products on the site or use the AliDropship platform to build your store.
