Cherrie H.

I'm an e-commerce VA and part of my duty is to search for the best product research tool online. I've found Sell The Trend via Instagram ads and suggested to my client right away. He asked me to review 3 product research tools including Sell The Trend and made a brief review. The winner is Sell The Trend because of the Nexus tab.

DeAndre C.

Since I’ve seen others contribute testimonials in the group, I figured I’ll follow suit. So I’ve started a fb campaign... and since yesterday I’ve made 2 sales! I couldn’t believe it! It’s nothing substantial or a lot of money but for someone who’s never done this before and to actually make something, it’s exciting! I wrote Sell The Trend for support. I asked them what I could do to improve my store and they gave me so much solid feedback!

Christine A.

Frequently asked questions

CJ Dropshipping does not typically buy products from AliExpress to fulfill orders. They source products directly from manufacturers and suppliers, which allows for potentially better pricing, more control over the supply chain, and often better shipping options. However, CJ Dropshipping allows you to request sourcing of specific products. If you find a product on AliExpress that is not available on CJ Dropshipping, you can request CJ to source that product for you, potentially at better terms.

Yes, you can use Alidropship as a tool for your dropshipping business while fulfilling orders through CJ Dropshipping. Alidropship is a WordPress plugin that automates the process of creating a dropshipping store with AliExpress, but you're not limited to only using AliExpress as your supplier. If you prefer CJ Dropshipping's services for certain products or for all your fulfillment needs, you can manually process orders with CJ Dropshipping whenever a sale is made through your Alidropship-powered store.

Yes, CJ Dropshipping does ship from China, as it is headquartered there and has a significant network of suppliers in the region. They also have warehouses in China which they use for order fulfillment. However, CJ Dropshipping also has warehouses in other countries around the world. This global presence allows them to offer various shipping options, including domestic shipping within countries like the USA, which can significantly reduce delivery times compared to shipping directly from China.

CJ Dropshipping is designed to simplify the process of dropshipping for e-commerce businesses. Here's a broad overview of how it works:

  1. Account Setup: You start by creating an account with CJ Dropshipping.
  2. Product Selection: Browse and select products from CJ's vast inventory to list in your store.
  3. Store Integration: Integrate CJ with your e-commerce platform (like Shopify or WooCommerce) for seamless product listing and order synchronization.
  4. Order Processing: When a customer orders a product from your store, the order is automatically forwarded to CJ.
  5. Fulfillment: CJ sources the item from their suppliers, packages it, and ships it directly to your customer.
  6. Tracking and Support: CJ provides tracking information and support throughout the shipping process.

This system is set up to handle the complexities of order fulfillment, allowing you to focus on growing your e-commerce business.

CJ Dropshipping itself does not open Amazon stores for users. Instead, they provide services that support users who want to sell on Amazon. If you wish to sell CJ Dropshipping products on Amazon, you’ll need to:

  1. Open an Amazon Seller Account: You must register for an Amazon Seller account on your own.
  2. Select Products: Choose products from CJ Dropshipping to list on Amazon.
  3. Create Listings: Manually create product listings on Amazon, including detailed descriptions and images.
  4. Fulfill Orders: When you receive orders, you can either fulfill them through Amazon's Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) service or have CJ Dropshipping fulfill the orders directly.
  5. Integration Tools: Some third-party tools may help automate parts of this process, but typically, the connection between Amazon and CJ Dropshipping involves manual management.

CJ Dropshipping can work with Amazon in the following way:

  1. Product Selection: You choose products from CJ Dropshipping that you would like to sell on Amazon.
  2. Amazon Listing: You create listings for these products on Amazon, being mindful of Amazon’s policies and listing requirements.
  3. Order Fulfillment: When a product sells, you place the order with CJ Dropshipping, providing the customer’s details for direct shipment.
  4. CJ Processing: CJ sources the product, packages it, and ships it to your customer on your behalf.
  5. Customer Service: You remain responsible for customer service and managing the customer's experience, although CJ handles the logistics.

Using CJ Dropshipping with Amazon requires careful coordination to ensure that orders are processed efficiently and customers receive their purchases in a timely manner.

How to Connect CJ Dropshipping to Etsy?

Connecting CJ Dropshipping to an Etsy store is not as direct as with platforms like Shopify, as Etsy does not support a native integration app. However, you can still use CJ Dropshipping to fulfill your Etsy orders by manually processing them. Here’s how you can connect the two:

  1. List Products on Etsy: Create listings on Etsy for the products you’ve selected from CJ Dropshipping, ensuring you adhere to Etsy's marketplace policies.
  2. Manual Order Placement: When an order is received on Etsy, you’ll need to manually place the order with CJ Dropshipping, inputting the customer's shipping information.
  3. Fulfillment: CJ Dropshipping will handle the fulfillment process, including sourcing, quality check, and shipping.
  4. Communication: Communicate with your customers to update them about their order status, providing tracking information once available.

It’s crucial to account for the manual steps required for each order, which can affect how you scale your Etsy shop with CJ Dropshipping.

Integrating CJ Dropshipping with Shopify streamlines the product listing and order fulfillment process. Here’s how it works:

  1. Install CJ App: Add the CJ Dropshipping app to your Shopify store.
  2. Product Import: Use the app to import products from CJ’s catalog to your Shopify store.
  3. Auto-Sync: The app automatically syncs inventory levels and pricing, updating your store in real-time.
  4. Order Automation: When a customer places an order, it’s automatically forwarded to CJ for fulfillment.
  5. Shipping and Tracking: CJ handles the packing and shipping, providing tracking numbers that you can relay to your customers.

By integrating CJ with Shopify, you automate much of the sales process, which can help in scaling your business more effectively.

CJ Dropshipping functions by bridging the gap between suppliers and online retailers. Once you set up an account and integrate it with your e-commerce store, you can begin listing products from CJ's catalog on your site. When a customer places an order, the order details are automatically sent to CJ Dropshipping, which then takes responsibility for the fulfillment process.

The fulfillment process includes sourcing the product from their network of suppliers, packing it (with the option of custom branding), and shipping it directly to your customer. This end-to-end service is beneficial because it streamlines the operation for the store owner, who can focus on other aspects of their business like marketing and scaling.

To further refine the process, you can use tools like Sell The Trend to select products that are currently popular, potentially increasing your sales. This tool’s integration into your strategy can provide a data-driven approach to product selection, which is key in the dropshipping business model where product trends can shift rapidly.

CJ Dropshipping provides estimated delivery times for each shipping method, but these are estimates and not guarantees.

As an e-commerce business owner, setting the right expectations for your customers regarding shipping times is crucial. Offering a variety of shipping options and being transparent about potential delays can help manage customer satisfaction. Additionally, frequent communication with your customers about their order status can alleviate concerns about shipping times.

  • Shipping Fees: Each product has associated shipping costs, which vary depending on the size, weight, and destination.

  2. eBay Seller Account: Set up an eBay seller account or use an existing one.
  3. Product Selection: Choose products from CJ Dropshipping's catalog that you want to list on eBay.
  4. Manual Listing: Unlike Shopify, which has direct integration, you may need to manually list products on eBay, including product details and images.

Whether CJ Dropshipping is better than AliExpress depends on your specific needs and business model. CJ Dropshipping offers a range of services and products, including printing on demand and warehousing options, which AliExpress does not. CJ Dropshipping also provides a dedicated agent support system, which can be beneficial for solving issues and getting personalized help.

However, AliExpress often has a broader range of products and suppliers, which may offer more competitive pricing due to the larger scale of operations. The choice between the two platforms should be based on factors like product range, shipping methods, cost, ease of integration with your store, and the level of customer service you require.

CJ Dropshipping is a popular platform that provides services to facilitate dropshipping, a retail fulfillment method where a store doesn't keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, when a store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. As for whether CJ Dropshipping is free, it's essential to clarify that the platform itself does not charge a membership fee, making it accessible to anyone who wishes to start a dropshipping business. However, this does not mean that all services are without cost.

While you can browse their product offerings and set up an account at no charge, certain services may incur costs. These include but are not limited to: specialized packaging, private inventory, and the use of CJ's warehousing service. When a sale is made, CJ Dropshipping charges for the product cost and shipping fees, which you need to factor into your selling price.

Additionally, using Sell The Trend, a separate dropshipping tool that leverages AI to identify trending products, can help bolster your CJ Dropshipping business. Sell The Trend offers a trial period, after which a subscription fee is required. This integration can enhance your product selection process, though it's an additional cost you'll need to consider in your business model.

CJ Dropshipping is generally considered a good option for many e-commerce entrepreneurs, especially those looking to avoid the costs associated with maintaining inventory. The platform is known for its wide product selection, integration capabilities with major e-commerce platforms, and additional services like product customization and warehousing.

However, "good" is subjective, and the platform's suitability can vary depending on the specific needs of a business. It's important to consider factors such as shipping times, product quality, and customer support. It’s also advisable to read current user reviews and possibly test the service yourself to ensure that it meets your standards.

Is CJ Dropshipping Legit Reddit?

The legitimacy of CJ Dropshipping is often discussed on forums like Reddit, where the consensus is that CJ Dropshipping is a legitimate service. However, like any service, experiences can vary greatly among users. Redditors share a mix of experiences, with some praising the platform for its customer service, range of products, and ease of integration, while others have noted challenges with shipping times, product quality, or communication.

It's always beneficial to do your own research on Reddit and other forums, keeping in mind that individual posts may reflect personal experiences that might not be universally applicable. It's also a good idea to test the service with a few orders before committing to a large volume to gauge how well it aligns with your business needs.

CJ Dropshipping is indeed a legitimate dropshipping supplier platform that offers a range of services to e-commerce businesses. The platform specializes in product sourcing, order fulfillment, and logistic services. It has established a reputation for providing access to a wide array of products and is recognized for its integration with popular e-commerce platforms like Shopify, WooCommerce, and others.

However, as with any dropshipping service, the legitimacy of the experience depends heavily on your use of the platform. While there are many success stories, some users have faced challenges with shipping times, product quality, and customer service. It's crucial for prospective dropshippers to conduct thorough research, read reviews, and possibly test the service with a few products before scaling up their business. Proper due diligence, including assessing the reliability of Sell The Trend's analytics for product selection, can help in ensuring a legitimate and profitable dropshipping business.

CJ Dropshipping’s reliability, like many dropshipping platforms, can be subjective and depends largely on how you utilize their services. Many users find CJ Dropshipping to be a reliable partner for sourcing products and fulfilling orders. The platform has systems in place to ensure product quality and delivery, such as quality checks and tracking services.

However, as with any third-party service, there can be instances of miscommunication, delays, or issues with product quality. To maximize reliability, it is advisable to:

  • Regularly communicate with CJ Dropshipping's support for updates on products and shipping.
  • Test order products to assess quality and packaging.
  • Stay updated on customer reviews and feedback for the products you are selling.

It is also beneficial to keep an eye on Sell The Trend to ensure that the products you are choosing continue to perform well in the market, maintaining the reliability of your product offerings.

CJ Dropshipping is generally considered a safe and reliable platform for e-commerce entrepreneurs. The platform takes measures to protect the user's personal and financial information, and provides a secure system for transactions. They offer customer support and a dispute resolution process in case of any issues with orders or suppliers.

However, "safe" also refers to the risk of inventory, shipping, and quality control, which are inherent challenges in the dropshipping business model. CJ Dropshipping addresses these risks by offering services like quality checks before dispatch and providing shipping insurance options.

While CJ Dropshipping offers numerous benefits, there are some disadvantages to consider:

  • Dependency on Suppliers: Relying on CJ's network of suppliers can pose risks such as stock shortages and inconsistent product quality.
  • Longer Shipping Times Compared to Domestic Suppliers: Especially if using suppliers based in China and not using local warehouses.
  • Complexity in Shipping: Dealing with international shipping can introduce challenges with customs and longer delivery times.
  • Limited Branding Opportunities: Custom packaging and branding options are available but can be restrictive compared to managing your own product lines.

Understanding these limitations is crucial for managing your dropshipping business effectively.


  • Wide Product Selection: Access to a vast array of products across various categories.
  • Integration Capabilities: Strong integration with major e-commerce platforms like Shopify and WooCommerce.
  • Warehousing Solutions: Availability of global warehousing options to reduce shipping times.
  • Customization Options: Offers some degree of product customization and private label services.


  • Inconsistent Product Quality: As with any dropshipping service, product quality can vary.
  • Customer Service Issues: Some users report delays and issues with customer service.
  • Reliance on External Stocks: Limited control over stock levels can lead to potential delays and stockouts.
  • Higher Shipping Costs for Faster Delivery: Expedited shipping options are more expensive.

Evaluating these pros and cons will help determine if CJ Dropshipping aligns with your business needs.

When listing products in your e-commerce store from CJ Dropshipping, "vendor" typically refers to the supplier or brand of the product. In CJ Dropshipping's platform, you can often find the manufacturer or brand name in the product details. You would use this information as the vendor when listing the product in your store.

However, if you are selling products from multiple suppliers or if the product does not have a recognizable brand, you may choose to list your store name as the vendor to maintain consistency across your listings.

CJ Dropshipping is a global dropshipping platform that offers a comprehensive solution for online retailers who wish to sell products without maintaining inventory. It is a one-stop service that covers product sourcing, order processing, and shipping fulfillment. Unlike traditional retail models, dropshipping with CJ allows you to avoid upfront costs for inventory, which can significantly reduce the barrier to entry for starting an e-commerce store.

The platform connects you with suppliers from various locations around the world, offering a broad selection of products across different categories. By eliminating the need to stock products, you can focus on marketing and customer service, while CJ Dropshipping handles the logistics of sourcing and delivering the products to your customers. This model is especially beneficial for entrepreneurs who wish to test the market with different products without the risk associated with purchasing large quantities of inventory.

In CJ Dropshipping, "product type" refers to the category or classification of the product according to its characteristics. This can include general categories such as "apparel," "electronics," "home goods," etc. Product type is used to organize and classify products within your store and the CJ platform, making it easier for customers to find what they're looking for. It also assists in managing and marketing your inventory.

When you add products to your store, choosing the correct product type is crucial for search engine optimization (SEO) and for customers who filter products by category during their search.

RRP stands for Recommended Retail Price. In the context of CJ Dropshipping, it is the price that CJ suggests you should list the product for in your store. It's typically calculated to give you a reasonable profit margin while staying competitive in the marketplace.

However, the RRP is only a suggestion, and you have the flexibility to set your own prices based on your business strategy, target audience, and market conditions. It's important to consider your costs, including the product price, shipping, taxes, and any additional fees, when setting your final retail price.

What is Vendor in CJ Dropshipping?

In the context of CJ Dropshipping, a "vendor" refers to the original supplier or manufacturer of the products that are available for you to list and sell in your e-commerce store. This term is used to identify the source of the product within the supply chain. On your own store’s platform, you might list the vendor name in product descriptions or keep it for your records to track which products come from which suppliers.

When working with CJ Dropshipping, you typically don’t have to deal directly with individual vendors since CJ acts as the intermediary. This means they handle the sourcing, quality control, and shipping, but it's still beneficial to know the vendor for each product for your own inventory management and customer inquiries.

p>The best products to dropship with CJ Dropshipping often depend on current market trends, demand stability, and your target audience. However, generally, the following types of products can perform well:

  • Tech Accessories: Items like phone cases, chargers, and earphones typically have high demand and low shipping costs.
  • Fashion Items: Especially those that are not size-dependent, such as scarves, hats, and sunglasses.
  • Beauty Products: Small, lightweight items like makeup tools and skincare products that are not easily breakable.
  • Home Decor: Particularly unique or niche items that appeal to specific interests.

Using tools like Sell The Trend can also help identify which products are currently popular and likely to sell well on your store.

The cheapest shipping method on CJ Dropshipping usually involves slower transit times and can vary depending on the product’s weight, dimensions, and destination. Generally, options like:

  • CJ Packet Ordinary
  • Yanwen Economic Air Mail
  • China Post Ordinary Small Packet Plus

These are cost-effective but also mean longer delivery times, which could impact customer satisfaction. When choosing the cheapest method, consider the trade-off between cost and shipping time, and how it aligns with your customer service goals.

The most expensive shipping methods on CJ Dropshipping are typically the fastest. These can include:

  • DHL
  • FedEx
  • UPS Expedited

These services offer quicker delivery, often ranging from a few days to a week, and are preferred for high-value products or customers who prioritize fast delivery. They also provide better tracking and security for shipments.

The most reliable shipping method on CJ Dropshipping tends to be:

  • CJ Packet: Specifically, options like CJ Packet Standard or CJ Packet Express, which offer a good balance of cost, speed, and reliability.
  • DHL: For international shipping, DHL is renowned for its reliability and fast delivery times.
  • Local Fulfillment: If CJ has a warehouse in the destination country, using local fulfillment services can also be very reliable and quick.

These options ensure that the products are not only delivered faster but also with minimal risk of loss or damage.

What is the Return Policy on CJ Dropshipping?

CJ Dropshipping's return policy allows for the return of items under specific conditions, such as defective products or items that do not match the listing description. Here’s how their return policy generally works:

  • Defective or Wrong Items: Can be returned for a replacement or a full refund depending on the buyer's preference.
  • Returns Due to Buyer Remorse: Usually, CJ Dropshipping does not accept returns if the customer simply changes their mind. However, this can vary by seller, and restocking fees may apply.
  • Return Shipping Costs: Typically, if the return is due to a seller fault (like a defective item), CJ Dropshipping covers the return shipping costs. If the buyer is returning an item for other reasons, they might be responsible for the return shipping fees.

It is crucial for you as a store owner to communicate these policies clearly on your store’s website to avoid disputes and ensure customer satisfaction.

CJ Dropshipping is headquartered in Hangzhou, China, and they have warehouses located in various countries around the world, including the United States, Germany, Thailand, and Indonesia, among others. This global presence allows them to offer shorter shipping times for many products, depending on where your customers are located.

Having multiple warehouse locations also helps CJ Dropshipping provide dropshippers with options for inventory storage, which can be a significant advantage for reducing shipping times and offering more competitive delivery options to customers.

The best shipping method for CJ Dropshipping depends on several factors, including the destination country, the type of products being shipped, the expected delivery times, and the shipping costs you and your customers are willing to incur.

CJ Dropshipping offers a range of shipping methods, each with its own balance of cost and delivery speed. For instance:

  • ePacket: Generally offers a balance between cost and speed, suitable for small, lightweight items. Delivery can take between 7-20 business days.
  • CJ Packet: CJ's own shipping solution, offering competitive pricing and reliability, with varying delivery times based on the destination.
  • DHL, UPS, FedEx: These express services offer faster delivery, typically within 5-10 business days, but at a higher cost.

It's crucial to weigh these options against your business model and customer expectations. Using a shipping method that offers tracking can improve customer satisfaction, even if it's slightly more expensive. Always provide your customers with estimated delivery times and update them promptly should any delays occur.

CJ Dropshipping might be perceived as expensive for several reasons:

  1. Product Sourcing: They offer a product sourcing service that may lead to higher costs due to the effort involved in finding and vetting suppliers.
  2. Quality Control: Additional steps like quality checking can add to the cost.
  3. Custom Packaging: If you opt for custom packaging, this will also increase the price.
  4. Warehousing: Using CJ’s warehouses outside of China can mean higher storage and handling costs, but with the benefit of faster shipping.
  5. Shipping Options: Faster shipping methods naturally cost more than standard options.

It’s important to consider these factors when evaluating the cost of CJ Dropshipping compared to its competitors. Despite higher costs, these services add value to your business by potentially offering better customer experiences and streamlining operations.
