Interesting Plugin but i have looked at some prices. Example a phone being solf on Aliexpress for 750$ . Same exact phone on Amazon or Ebay selling for $450-500. That's a pretty big difference for a smart shopper. Thoughts?

1. How many products you currently have on your store?

2. How many pages indexed by Google do you have now?

3. Have you imported reviews?

Good Question. One of my sites which currently not marketing Aliexpress has similar smart and mobile phones and cheaper than Aliexpress. A person who bought a phone off Aliexpress phoned me to ask a question about one of the products.

In the conversation one could tell he was a young man and I asked why he did not pruchase via my site through our merchant. His answer was simply that he likes Aliexpress. Cannot compete with that line of thought.

So it is swings and roundabouts. Smart shoppers like you say will find the cheapest outlet but others will pay the extra dollars involved. So one could run three type of stores, one for Amazon, Ebay and Aliexpress and see which one does the best.

No I didn't do anything extra, just installed the plugin, products and set up my sites, my income was growing organically, (impressive plugin).
I must say I was about to set up Fan Pages and all the other usual social media stuff etc... and then the big blow from Ali-express happened, no 30 day cookies.
This has changed the entire playing field for affiliates, it sways heavily in Ali's favour. I would walk away right know and have said i would BUT I am really looking forward the the new plugin update in December, it looks promising.

Re: Earn Money with AliExpress Affiliate Program using The Most Powerful Plugin
Share on:

As you might already know, AliExpress recently increased its affiliate commission to 8%, whilst also simultaneously cutting the cookies time limit from 30-days to one session. This became a problem for many affiliates since their income dropped. Thankfully those who had used AliPlugin did not suffer as much, since AliExpress affiliate sites have lower dependency on cookies.

Despite this, I saw a an opportunity to improve the plugin further and integrated new features that should help AliExpress affiliates.

Look how it works:

When a potential buyer visits a product page on your affiliate store, he sees an attractive price for the item. He also sees an active timer and a strong call-to-action informing him that this is a limited time offer (“Today’s Deal”), and in an hour or two (the timer shows a countdown) the price will be higher.



As a result, the visitor goes to AliExpress being highly motivated to make an urgent purchase – and his motivation is even stronger than before. Ultimately this means that you can multiply the number of purchases made within the first session – and your income grows significantly.

One more thing to boost your profits!

I have also added a new affiliate program to the plugin. Now you can earn not only with AliExpress, but also with Alibaba – the world’s greatest eCommerce platform, initially created for wholesalers but also available for single-item purchases. Amongst other things, Alibaba’s affiliate program is popular for its good commissions – $3.50 for just contacting a supplier, and – ATTENTION! – 30-day cookies.

(Click here to learn more).

How it works

Your product pages are now provided with additional “Learn How to Buy It Even Cheaper” links, right under the Buy Now button. Upon clicking the link a user sees a pop-up with brief and clear instructions on how to find the item on Alibaba.com and buy it at an unbelievably low price. As soon as he contacts a supplier, you get $3.50 in commissions.



This new feature is optional, so you can switch it on and off as required.



In summary, by using the improved AliPlugin you can not only maintain your current profits, but also even boost them.

Buy an upgraded Plugin now or just update your current version to get these new features.

Is targeting a local market better? For me it would be hard to target my local market here in Holland I think. On the other hand, strangely enough, Asian buyers who visit my site are hesitant and never buy, most my buyers are from Europe, UK, Russia, US, South/Central America. I don't target any specific local market, just install the plugin, import products, blog once in a while, SEO specific products, that's it. My site has been up for 2 months now and its not going that great, I sell something once every 3-4 days. Although, total sales now is around 94$ (2 months) which is not really bad but could be better Only one of my sites is doing "Ok" I tried other sites with for example only Apparel (Fashion) and its not doing anything at all, almost no visitors. Any tips are welcome

Think this is the site he is talking about Alibaba Affiliates. It appears to use the same log-in as Aliexpress or I have joined this program before (not sure).

Anyways once in it gives you an affiliate ID.

Yaros can you confirm that this is correct please..

Many thanks

Hi Yaros, your Today's deal disclamer is breaking their TOS...


e.Using any exaggerated, false, or misleading information or content when placing advertisements or links (e.g. using “buy one get one free” to advertise any campaign page of the AliExpress.com International Platform) on its Advertising Channels to induce visitors to click into the advertisement;

1. For my niche, currently have around 130 products in my store as i manually select products that has transparent/white background to make it look clean. But before that, i was just importing thousand of products that has various kind of background but it doesn't feel good to my eyes....., that is why i have deleted all and re-pick those products that has transparent/white background.

2. Based on inputting "site:domain.com" into google search engine, i have 13 pages at the moment. But Google Index Status in webmaster tool shown "None has been indexed"

3. I did tried multiple times but still unable to have review imported, it keeps repeating "Step 4", you can see the attached screenshot. Not sure what went wrong...

Yes, that's correct! You can use the same login and pass to complete registration with Alibaba. After you get in the admin area find any creative available and copy and paste your affiliate link into the Plugin field of API settings.

It should be also noted that I have tested this Alibaba program myself and was quite satiasfied with results - got 130 leads and earned $455 last month using such website as a landing page - Home - Direct Shopping Club That's why I decided that it can help with Aliplugin.

Continue selecting and adding products manually but add another 8000-10000 as well using the bulk import.In this case you will get more pages indexed by Google - 13 pages is not serious if you rely only on organic traffic.

Please contact Skype: AliPrtnership. We will help you to import reviews. They are important because are unique and help with indexation of your site.

They maybe not complaint but it breaks their rules as it's a fake information given to buyers.
anyway if it's not a problem for them, it would not a problem for affiliates...
Could you provide a written answer from them regarding that point ?

I did not ask for any permissions. I just share and discuss some of my new features with AliExpress. So, I can't give you any written evidences, because I did not apply for them.



P.S. Forgot to mention that now products variations are also available, it should also help with conversions.

Go to ads.alibaba.com and login with your AliExpress credentials. Register for the Affiliate program. After registration you can go in to the Admin Area and go to "Creatives & Tools" to get your Affiliate link.

Waht a waste of my money and time getting two sites from you. You took our cookies away, took our clients e-mails, we cant even e-mail out clients. we dont know who bought what products. Aliexpress taking away all the cookies from 30days to instant purchase only. you took our clients e-mails and are e-mailing them directly selling products from your site. we affliate site owners dont even know our customers e-mail address.its hidden from us. and dont know which customer bought what products. I ve got 250 people went directly to aliexpress from my website but I only got $20.00 commission. I had 70000 product views from my sites, that seems not right.

Because (1) you cut-off your screenshot of the conversation so that no one could see any response by Aliexpress - such as an approval of the "todays's deal" with the countdown, (2) I agree this violates the TOS, and (3) you're committing fraud.

This is why marketers get fined and sued, affiliates get banned, and it gives the forum a bad name.

Someone is going to come along and start reporting every site with this fake claim, accounts will be banned, and your PayPal account will ultimately be at risk.

It seemed like a decent product, but in your desire to keep sales going after the cookie period was nuked you're making bad decisions and making unsupported representations.

Since you were "sharing" your concept with Aliexpress don't you think it would be be a good idea to get their written approval? Get that and watch your WSO sales go up.

I applaud you Yaros for your efforts to help the affiliates but going over boundaries does not nor help the affiliates it will have the result as described above. As the feature stands it does break the TOS because none of the products have a daily promotion running as per my conversation with Ali Affiliates today.

It is not about turning the timed feature off either if I am uncomfortable about using the feature. The timed feature in doing what it is doing breaks the TOS and no affiliate should be using it in its current form.

Aliexpress stated no action will be taken against any affiliate and they will speak with you (Yaros) but affiliates using the timing feature may want to deactivate it, your choice.

Because (1) you cut-off your screenshot of the conversation so that no one could see any response by Aliexpress - such as an approval of the "todays's deal" with the countdown, (2) I agree this violates the TOS, and (3) you're committing fraud.

This is why marketers get fined and sued, affiliates get banned, and it gives the forum a bad name.

Someone is going to come along and start reporting every site with this fake claim, accounts will be banned, and your PayPal account will ultimately be at risk.

It seemed like a decent product, but in your desire to keep sales going after the cookie period was nuked you're making bad decisions and making unsupported representations.

Since you were "sharing" your concept with Aliexpress don't you think it would be be a good idea to get their written approval? Get that and watch your WSO sales go up.

.
I shared this information with AliExpress and they come to a decision that it would be really better to use this feature only for particular (selective) products that have a featured status. So, I will make some changes with this option and add special datafeed of hot deals to the plugin. This datafeed was already provided by AliExpress before. It is updated daily.

Great Yaros - knew that between you both, you would come up with an answer. Thank you.

So basically this conversation happen just to make sure that they are ok with new changes? So firstly, They are removing 30 days cookies and after that saying that a "today's deal" should be only for particular items? It's all about how you will show it.

As I understand it's breaking TOS saying that it's "today's deal". But I think if our websites had something like a "delete script" so when the deal will end, the script actually will delete the page and create absolutely new same one - so this way it's not breaking TOS since it's a actual deal only on our websites and we are actually deleting the page.

I know that Google will go crazy de-indexing and indexing new pages again, but this just a small idea how to get back our good source of income.

I'm sure if we all chip in with ideas and Yaros can code them, we can actually benefit from new affiliate Aliexpress changes. IMO

P.S. I don't care if AliExpress is asking to place the button to make the particular product a "Today's Deal" . Yaros, please add the button which will add "Today's Deal" on every product. Sick of AliExpress rules and changes.

I think I found the solution that will allow adding these deals to almost all the products without breaking any rules. Finishing on coding an additional scraper and discussing it with AliExpress. I think this solution will satisfy all parties.

No need to delete product pages, just a way to update the page with Todays deal price and countdown counter. Many products on the AliExpress website have this countdown counter. If Yaros can find a way to update this everyday in our database or that we fire up the script our self to retrieve the updates to our products. Maybe even retrieve the Todays deal status at the time a buyer visits the page, dont know if that's possible and I think it would slow down loading of the page anyway. Looking forward to seeing your fix Yaros, Keep up the good work.

This is exactly what I want to carry out. The bad news is that today a 11.11 promotion has started and these timers dissapeared. So, it put the brakes on my work.



For this moment Today's deal can be activated for all the products which have discounted prices. I think it does not break AliExpress TOS much, but it is up to you if you decide to use this feature or not.

Anyone have tips, thoughts, advice on how to deal with this 11-11 event? Is it worth promoting? Why would I promote 11-11 to buyers NOW if they will only go directly to AliExpress page on the 11th? If there still was a 30 days cookie program it would make it worth it I think. Or not? Any thoughts?

Also, I have some products ranking on first page of Google together with and sometimes even above AliExpress for a keyword. Hopefully they will remain on page 1 on 11-11. Not all are selling yet and I know these products will have a nice discount on 11-11. Yaros, will I be able to Update the product(s) on the 11th to reflect the discount price?

Now that the 11-11 Promotion has started the prices are all messed up. I dont know if its for all products but already saw it for 2 products. Example, yesterday I sold 1 product for 70$ As of today the price at AliExpress went up around 30$ So the price now is 100$ I will be happy if I can sell that item for 100$ but now they show a preview of the 11-11 price of 65$ also and I think most of the buyers I sent to AliExpress now will wait a few days for the 11th and buy the item for 65$ My commission 0$
Hopefully I can compensate that with many sales on 11-11 Who knows

Thank you Yaros for your latest update. I have some ideas that could optimize your plugin:
  1. A theme/product page that looks almost the same as AliExpress. Redirect the visitor, after he clicks on Buy Now, directly to the payment page so he can complete his order. The visitor might not know that he was redirected by an affiliate and he can immediately pay for his order.
  2. Drop the whole AliExpress Affiliate and use your code and themes for another company. AliExpress would lose a lot of affiliates and they might reconsider their actions. For example you can try DealExtreme, they also have free shipping and 45 day cookies. The commission for a starter is 5% and can get up to 8%. They also have an API. Cool Gadgets at the Right Price - Worldwide Free Shipping - DX
  3. If you have a partnership with AliExpress and can’t drop them. Combine AliExpress and DealExtreme (or another company). Users can choose if they want to import products from AE, DX or both.
Maybe you can do something with these ideas.

Good stuff I agree, maybe moving the plugin away from Ali and possibly making it versatile with other companies could be the way to go.
I have done a lot of price comparisons with Aliexpress and Ebay Australia etc and have found that Ali is not really that cheap anymore.

Agreed in relation to price. I use another Chinese merchant for electronics and they are cheaper on many products than Aliexpress and offer far more in relation to guarantees on their service and products.

Shipping though is where they cannot compete especially the free shipping. Comes down to the bulk amounts being shipped out via Aliexpress I guess though I see a lot of products on Ali do charge for shipping thereby making my merchant more than competitive.

Time to stop playing with Aliexpress and take our business elsewhere using a great plug-in like Yaros has developed.

The point is that AliExpress is a popular brand. People know about this shop and are willing to buy from. There are three big players in affiliate marketing - Amazon, Ebay and Alibaba Group and I doubt that other ecommerce platforms can enter a competition with them now and bring affiliates more profits.

dx.com alexa rank is 1,682, while AliExpress.com has 30. It is a big difference.

The affiliate program I would really like to test is TaoBao. It has great prices, perfect API and good terms for affiliates. Now they are going to enter a global market but I am not sure when it can happen.

Found a broker for TaoBao called YOBUY who offer a affiliate program via SAS who offer 15 day cookie. NO DF or anything though and they are not TaoBao just a broker.

I have bought stuffs from dx extreme many years back and also aliexpress too. Aliexpress is the only platform that i am using right now due to the many products, but i do go for Taobao to buy stuffs too.

Have bought quite a lot in Taobao months back and ship via air as it was very cheap. But the much saving is via sea especially buying lots of items especially bulky items. I even joined a few active local facebook group to share my loots and also see other members loots sharing too.

Taobao affiliate will be good but the targeting limitation is towards mandarin understanding only because the platform is in chinese and many of the seller don't communicate well in english or even don't understand english, and also most don't ship to oversea.

Hi Yaros, I am trying to register for the Alibaba affiliate program.

On the registration page there is a field for Tracking ID and another for Affiliate Name.

What is the difference between the two and which one would appear in our affiliate link?

What could be made is a dropshipping website with:
- the entire catalog of aliexpress
- an affiliate program with cookies

then, we send all our traffic to this website instead of aliexpress.

Huge project...

The site would not be hard, it would be the affiliate program attached to it would be the one that would take a bit of time. Though there is a lot of good software out there (plug-ins) for running affiliate programs so even that maybe not that hard either.

Yaros already has a dropshipping site working though it be for specific products be easy enough to change to incorporate all the categories on Ali. Not sure whether that would be an issue with Ali though, that would need to be checked out first.

Great idea

Making the website and the affiliate program is not hard.
but not sure it could be possible to automate everything between ali and customer.
So managing thousands orders everyday would be a pain...

You mean between Ali and the Dropshipping site. It would be a pain unless the API has such functionality. The Tech side is not the problem I think but it would still be a huge taking. Everything else will be complicated though, Administrative, Legal, Trust, Support, Finance etc....
