Modalyst is an Official Dropshipping Partner of AliExpress. This means that all of the product data - including prices, inventory & shipping - is synced through our API connection with AliExpress. This is a faster and more secure way to sync products and orders.
To get started, we need to connect your account with AliExpress. You can follow a few easy steps from this page on Modalyst. Each step is necessary to ensure that your account is connected correctly, allowing us to update products and sync your orders.
Please make sure that you are logged into your AliExpress account.
Connect to AliExpress
We first need to connect your store to AliExpress. This just takes a click of the button Connect to AliExpress.
NOTE: When your store is connected, you will see a green arrow for this step. If you do not see it right away, refresh the page. You will see a green indicator when this step is successfully completed.
To keep your account connected to AliExpress, you need to renew your connection every 30 days. Simply click on the Renew Connection button to refresh your connection. You can do this throughout the month and do not need to wait for the 30 days to expire.
Join the AliExpress Dropshipping Program
To dropship with Modalyst and AliExpress, you must join their AliExpress Dropshipping Program. This assures that you can send orders to many different customers without your account getting blocked by AliExpress.
This also gives you access to the Dropshipping Center. [Link to learn more coming]
When you have finished accepting AliExpress’s Terms & Conditions, you will land on a page which looks like this:
AliExpress does not reroute you back to Modalyst, nor do they notify us that you have joined the program. You will, therefore, need to indicate that you have joined the AliExpress Dropshipping Program on Modalyst by checking the box.
