There is a straight forward method to check if someone else is already dropshipping a product, go to the product page and scroll to the very bottom where you will find the transaction history, now scroll through a few pages and if you notice any of these it could mean that someone is dropshipping this product:
- Same buyer name on 1 page with different countries
- All these orders are made in rapid succession, one after another within 5 minutes
- The buyer has a red A4 badge to the left of his name which means he’s either a long time customer or has made a lot of orders to be eligible for this aliexpress reward level
If someone is already dropshipping a product what does this mean?
- There is competition for this product
- Depending on sales volume there might be a high demand for this product / niche
