Being an ecommerce enthusiast, I am an active member of several online ecommerce communities over Facebook and other online forums. It is every day that I see new entrepreneurs coming out with mostly basic but common ecommerce issues. Here are some:
In this post, I have tried my best to provide 7 killers hacks to find best selling products for your online store by doing different things. Here you go!
#1 Killer Hack – BuzzSumo.com
The first product research method is using a website called buzzsumo. Buzzsumo allows you to analyze the best performing content across Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest & Linkedin.
Simply type in the product/topic or a keyword that you’re selling in so if you’re selling sunglasses you type in sunglasses Buzzsumo search bar and it will populate the most trending articles in the sunglasses niche.
Scroll down and we can see “1080P HD Video Recorder Sunglasses”.
On this post it has 2.4K Facebook engagement so we can assume that it is a viral article or a product page which is gaining lots of people attraction on Facebook.
Click on the link it will show you the exact article/product page that is being shared on Facebook so “1080P HD Video Recorder Sunglasses”.
If we scroll down the page, we can see that it is a dropshipping store.
So if you have a dropshipping store which is based on sunglasses, you can just import the same exact product from AliExpress/Ebay and promote it on the same channel where it is getting most attention. You can do the same activity for any niche.
#2 Killer Hack – AliExpress Best Selling
Next product research method is using Aliexpress best-selling lists.
Head over to Aliexpress best selling (https://bestselling.aliexpress.com/en).
You can literally see the top-selling Aliexpress products just in 5 seconds.
Scroll down and you can see different products like Retro Style Double Cotton Yard Colorful Pattern Camera, Anti Fatigue Compression Sleeve Elastic Men’s Socks and so many.
So we checked out “Retro Style Double Cotton Yard Colorful Pattern Camera Shoulder Neck Sling Hand Strap Belt”:
We can see the exact count that are being sold.
So this particular product has over 42,000 orders so there is a lot of potential in this product and people are taking too much interest to buy this product.
You can perform the same activity for any niche, BELIEVE ME, IT WORKS EVERY TIME!
#3 Killer Hack – MYIP.MS
Third product research method to find hot products to sell in Shopify is to use this website called myip.ms which allows you to find all of the websites hosted from the Shopify platform.
Click on “World Websites Database”.
Go to IP Owner/Parent IP Owner/Hosting and select Shopify as an owner. See below:
This allows you to see the top 30,000 Shopify stores that are receiving the most traffic to their site and probably making the most sales.
Just scroll down, you will see a list of more than 39000 shopify stores on the basis of their popularity.
These site are actually making thousands of dollars on a daily basis using AliExpress/Ebay or other zero inventory dropshipping model.
Copy the first store URL (https://colourpop.com/) and paste it in to your browser.
Pass additional parameter “/collections/all?sort_by=best-selling” at the end of the URL and base URL will look something like this https://colourpop.com/collections/all?sort_by=best-selling. This technique will give you the hot selling products of any store 😀
Do not reinvent the wheel. Just use the same thing with little tweaks which is already working.
#4 Killer Hack – Shopify Apps
Another way to find hot selling products for your Shopify store is to go to Shopify apps.
Select an app that has good customer review for instance, I selected “Best Currency Converter” that has 1637 customer reviews.
Now you will get plenty of store links with every single review.
Click on the first link.
Once you have opened the first URL, just add “/collections/all?sort_by=best-selling” at the end as we did in above technique.
You will get most selling or hot products for any niche from any store by using this technique.
#5 Killer Hack – Amazon Best Sellers
Another method to find hot selling products to sell on your Shopify store is to head over to Amazon bestsellers.
Click on Amazon best sellers it will pull up a list of all the top trending products on Amazon.
Don’t forget that amazon.com is the number one ecommerce platform in the entire world so the products that are selling well in Amazon are also going to sell well in your Shopify store.
This is an absolutely killer way to find trending products to put into your Shopify store so whenever I found my niche specific product that I saw on Amazon I head over to Aliexpress and cross check it to see if I can find the exact same product on Aliexpress.
For instance, I am aiming to sell “Harry Potter Wand” on my shopify store.
I just typed “Harry Potter Wand” it costs $36.00 on Amazon.
So if I am aiming to sell this “Harry Potter Wand”, I just go to AliExpress to find cheap but exact item.
I typed “Harry Potter Wand” on AliExpress search bar. You can see plenty of options with extremely low prices.
Just import that exact item into your shopify store and start selling 😀
#6 Killer Hack – Pinterest.com
6th killer hack to find hot selling products for your Shopify store is to head over to pinterest.com.
On Pinterest you can literally type in your niche and it will pull up the most popular pinned posts across the platform.
Let’s assume that you’re selling “Necklaces” and you you typed in “heartbeat necklace gold” in search bar.
Pinterest can literally find the most popular images that are being shared across the platform.
Now head over to AliExpress and type “heartbeat necklace gold” on AliExpress search bar.
You can see that exact product which is available on AliExpress. Choose a supplier who has a very good ratings.
If you don’t know how to validate AliExpress Suppliers, watch this Facebook Video which I made few days back.

By applying this strategy, you may have tons of your niche specific shopify stores in 3 to 4 seconds. Click on any of the top ranked store (other than advertisements). For instance, I have opened the-cats-paradise.myshopify.com.
Once you have opened this store, just insert this parameter /collections/all?sort_by=best-selling after .com and it will look exactly like this “the-cats-paradise.myshopify.com/collections/all?sort_by=best-selling”
