Hello everyone,

I hope you join the discussion.

so I was trying to search for some product on Aliexpress to add it to my store, I came across a product that had a high "order" numbers but here is my problem which is that this product comes with lots of variants.. and I'm not talking about small variant such as color difference or size I'm talking about something like different patterns.

so let's say for example this product in total got like 1000 order and have like 10 pattern variants( each got few sizes as well ) can I know which pattern/variant is the most popular one ? is it the one in product image( in a search result) or it doesn't matter?.

Thank you for your time and hope you a nice day!
sorry for writing errors!

UPDATE :1- I think, going to the owner's store and checking top selling products works really great
2- contact product owner and ask them about numbers ( which variant sells the most) and thankfully they
answered me
3- from the answered I got and search I find out that usually the product in the product image get the most
percentage of total product sales and the 1st few variants( if theres alot)

    It really doesn't matter if you are dropshipping. If you were buying in bulk and having to decide which ones to purchase, it would be a very big deal.

      You are right but for me, I'm just picky I guess
      I don't mind different sizes and colors variants but not different styles
      I feel its too spammy in 1 product

      thank you for joining the discussion i appreciate it

    If you have a drop-sipping business then I think keeping all variants and patterns of trending products in your online store would be great thing.

    I have had this issue before, then looking at my customer base i decided to run a vote campaign to my customers asking about fav & etc. huge variants can be a huge deal for real if you are buying in bulk, however i usually secure myself with some pre-orders and consider selling in bulk with no profit to another company sourcing the same niche if possible.

      Agreed, except the title of this post and the question indicated that it was AliExpress dropshipping. If you are dropshipping, you don't have those problems so you definitely want to list every variant that is available.

        Hello, you are kinda true about if you are dropshipping you dont have to worry about this and you can add all variants to your store. but for me i just wanted to choose the best quality available and the ones that sells the most. i dont want to spam my store with products that wont sells for sure

        Thank you for your opinion

    Hi,
    I want to start my #dropshipping business. I have gone through so many stuff to learn it, but still, I am not getting the confidence to start it.
    Would u like to give me some advice on how I can initiate with very less capital?
    and I want to know about your experience as u seems quite experienced.

    Thanks

      It takes a lot of time and money to get traffic. Normally, it takes more cost to get benefits. Unless you can find a particularly good niche, you can spend less capital to get an order.

    Instead of going by product, go with niche-wise, and try to have as many variants as possible.
