When a novice comes to AliExpress, there are nothing more than a few questions:
1. What are the requirements for opening a store?
A: Company business license ( the platform will close the entry channel for individual industrial and commercial households from December 2021 ), corporate Alipay / corporate personal Alipay account, trademark ( TM mark /R mark), domestic mobile phone number, brand new mailbox
2. How does the platform charge?
A: The fee consists of category deposit and store commission. Most common categories have a deposit of 10,000 yuan, including 50,000 for human hair, 30,000 for mobile phones, and 30,000 for electronic cigarettes .
3. Platform payment cycle
A: This is a bit similar to Taobao. The customer receives the goods and automatically confirms the receipt within 7 days. Many small sellers will worry that the platform logistics cycle is too long, whether the payment cycle is too long, and the funds are under pressure. AliExpress encourages small and medium-sized sellers to export. Open early loan policy.
4. Platform logistics system:
Answer: AliExpress has its own logistics. There are collection points all over the country. Different countries and regions have different shipping methods. For new products, you need to set shipping templates.
What conditions do you need to be good at AliExpress?
1. There is a stable supply of goods
This does not mean that it must be a factory customer, or that a trader has an advantage for more than ten years. Xiaobai sellers should consider what products to make before starting AliExpress. They must communicate clearly with the manufacturer to get the goods in advance, and they cannot go to the store to place orders. Can't ship out.
2. Professional operators
AliExpress is not a Wechat business, Bao Ma pushes a trolley and pushes WeChat Tuoke offline, and then takes a mobile phone and sends it to Moments every day. AliExpress is an e-commerce platform, and it is aimed at more than 200 countries and regions around the world. Language is the first requirement. At least your title is written in line with the platform search mechanism and the search habits of overseas consumers; e-commerce first Impression is selling pictures, and it is particularly important to understand the aesthetic design of overseas consumers; AliExpress is not as saturated as domestic Taobao, and requires a lot of advertising and promotion costs. The main traffic is natural traffic and platform promotion traffic. The preparatory activities in the early stage of the big promotion require the merchants to cheer up and do a good job in product selection, discount settings, activity gameplay, inventory checking, etc.
A novice to do cross-border e-commerce is nothing more than full-time and part-time. To do it full-time, you need to have the mentality of being a bench. The growth of a store is a process. It is not that you can drive a Mercedes-Benz or a BMW immediately after you start it. It is 15 years. Before, certainly not now. Before starting a part-time job, you need to think about a question: how much time can you spend in the store every day, how much energy can you put into the store, and can you seriously develop 5 products a day? Be prepared to give yourself how long it takes for the store to grow.
