The AutoDS Helper Extension will save you a lot of time dropshipping from AliExpress. Take advantage of many great features, including importing multiple products at a time, copying addresses, and searching multiple suppliers.
Let’s demonstrate how to use the extension on AliExpress.
1) Importing Multiple AliExpress Products
One of the best features of this extension is grabbing hundreds, thousands, and even tens of thousands of products in a few clicks. Instead of spending hours adding one product at a time, you can get this done in a matter of seconds! Then, you can upload all of them to your store using a single CSV file.
Here’s how it works:
Say your store sells clothing and you notice that adult T-Shirts are selling really well. You want to upload many more products within that niche to your store, but don’t have the time to upload each one individually.
To grab all of the products for your store on the first page, click on the AutoDS button on the bottom right of the screen. Then, click ‘Extract.’
The AutoDS Helper gathers all product IDs from the page. To add more products from other pages, go to the next page and click ‘extract’ again. You can do this multiple times until you’ve grabbed all of the products you want.
When you finish extracting products, click on ‘Export as CSV.’ A CSV file with all product IDs is then created and saved on your computer.
Now you can add these products to your store by dragging and dropping the CSV file into the AutoDS Platform. To do so, click ‘Add Product’ and select the ‘Upload CSV’ column. Then, drop the CSV file into the empty box.
2) Import Product Drafts In One Click
Sometimes you only want to import one or two specific products. The AutoDS extension allows you to do so with one click. What’s more, it uploads the product as a draft to the AutoDS platform with all of its descriptions, images, and specifications, saving you many steps and much time.
To use this feature, go to the product page on any one of our supported suppliers. At the top of the product title, click ‘Import to AutoDS.’ The item uploads as a draft to the AutoDS platform where, after some optimization, you can upload it directly to your store.
3) Copy Variant ID
At times dropshippers want to upload a specific variant of a product from AliExpress. For example, the blue version of a top-selling wallet on an eBay store. The AutoDS extension solves that problem by allowing us to copy product ID for each variant of a given product.
Simply select the variant (i.e., color, size, etc.) and click on the orange ‘copy’ button.
Then, you can paste it into the AutoDS platform and add it as a single product. Or, add it to an existing product as an additional variant you want to sell.
4) Address Copying
You can also use AutoDS Helper Extension to easily copy addresses when processing orders manually. This is especially helpful when we want to process multiple orders.
Instead of typing each address into the supplier website, you can copy the customer address from the AutoDS orders page in one click. Then, start processing your order as usual, and when you reach the Address section, click on the ‘Paste’ button. It will paste the whole address into the appropriate boxes.
5) Search Multiple Suppliers At Once
What if you want to compare the price of an AliExpress product with other suppliers? The AutoDS extension offers a simple way to search multiple supplier websites for either a general phrase or a particular title in one click.
To illustrate. First, click on the AutoDS extension at the top right. Then, select the region and suppliers you want to search. AutoDS supports over twenty suppliers, so you’ll have plenty of places to search in.
Next, click ‘search.’ Chrome opens multiple tabs, one for each supplier we select.
2. AliExpress Product Images Downloader
AliExpress Product Images Downloader extension is one of the most helpful tools that you can use when you are dropshipping from AliExpress.

First, you need to download the extension from the Google Chrome web store.
To download all the pictures, you need to click on the extension icon located under the product’s title.
And then, a folder will get downloaded to your computer that will contain all the product’s pictures, including the variations pictures.
After downloading the images, you can use them on your eBay, Shopify, or Woocommerce store.
3. ePacket identification
You can use the ePacket Identification extension to identify if the product is eligible for the ePacket shipping method or not without having to open the product’s page.
So instead of going to the product’s page and check if the product has ePacket as a shipping method, you can easily use this extension. It will save you a lot of time!
We recommend you to work only with products that have ePacket as a shipping method.
4. Price Blink
Price Blink is an extension that will show you if you have any coupons available for AliExpress. You can use the Price Blink extension in any other supplier, including AliExpress.
Using Price Blink, you can receive up to 40% off and sometimes even more, depending on the coupons.
We recommend you always click on the Coupons button on the price blink top bar to check if there are any coupons available before processing your orders.
