There are a few other tools you can find—notably, the filter tools. Below is a quick rundown containing each of them.
Filtering by Sources
This helps you source out data about products from Aliexpress or Banggood without stress.
Filtering by Niche
This is similar to filtering by category, it’s an amazing feature that helps you sort out winning products by your preferred niche. With regular daily updates, there is a handful of niches to check out.
This is particularly helpful to those who struggle to find their preferred niche. Advanced drop shippers can also tap into its incredible benefits. You can filter by niches such as archery, astronomy, beer, baking, and a whole lot more.
Filter by Shipping Methods
With bits of help, you know products that possess e-packet or Aliexpress standard, or both.
Filter by Country
You can filter by countries with the highest sales in your interested products. This helps you narrow down your target audience.
You can also filter by where the product is shipped. For example, you can know products that are shipped from the US or China.
Filter by Price
You can easily select a range for the prices of the products you are interested in. Although Alishark sets the highest product price limit to be $20, you can set your lower price limit to be $2. The higher price limit is especially good if you want products that can be sold at a cheaper price (below or at the price of $20).
Filter by the total number of orders
Here you can filter by a specific number of product orders (e.g. 2000).
If you only want to see the period for which the products have been ordered, you can filter from the total number of orders by your chosen time.
If you want to see products that have high or low daily orders, you can filter by Daily Orders.
You can also filter by Wish list; this helps you know the number of people that added the product to their wish list.
Other filter options include:
- Filter by PayPal
- Filter by saved only

Alishark subscription plan
They offer a 2-day trial at the cost of a dollar, and a monthly plan of 20 dollars. The interesting thing is that you can cancel your 2-day plan if we feel you’ve had enough experience.
Dropship Spy Review
This tool shares some commonalities with Niche scarper and Ecumhunt.
With dropship spy, you can insert the product you find into your Shopify store. It also gives you the option of importing products from Aliexpress, Walmart, eBay, and Amazon.
Dropship spy equally comes with a tool for sourcing out winning products; which can be done according to your preferred niche.

You can view dropshipping suppliers of the product

And lastly, other similar products
There are a few other tools in Dropship spy which are also useful. Such as;
Product Research Tool
Dropship spy offers three product research tools which are:
- Promising Product Tool: With this tool, you can easily spot products that have good potential to become winning products.
- Smart Match: This tool offers recommendations on your product based on your favorites and history.
- Product Spy Tool: This gives you access to products on Aliexpress by simply searching with a keyword.
Download Review Option
You can download reviews from Aliexpress, Walmart, and Amazon, by simply inserting their URLs into this tool.
Store Search Tool
This tool is best used when you know the exact name of the product to search for. With it, you get to see some Shopify stores selling similar or the same product as yours.
There are other tools you can find such as Site scanner tool, Store spy, and Request tool.
Dropship spy also comes with a product marketing tool for Facebook and Instagram such as
Facebook Engagement Calculator
With this tool you can check out people’s feedback on products through ads on Facebook; to know if there are positive or negative comments.
Facebook Audience Builder
This helps you to know the right audience to target on Facebook, especially as a beginner.
Approved Instagram Influencers and Instagram Influencer Search tools are both tools used to market your products on Instagram.
Dropship spy currently charges between $18 to $20 per month. They also have a yearly plan with a 3 months’ discount. Using their discount code, you get a 10% discount rate.
Comparison and Contrasts
The first thing you come across when you get into Alishark’s website is the 2-dollar trial. This is good if you are skeptical about making a committed plan. This is quite different from that of Dropship spy—where there is no 2-day trail. Although, when you compare both plans side by side it appears Dropship spy has a cheaper offer than Alishark. This is mostly because of their 10% discount rate and 3 months’ free subscription from their yearly plan.
But Alishark might prove to give you a better value for your money, due to their incredible filtering option which can help to locate and access a variety of products quickly. The best part is that you can combine all these filtering options to get your desired result.
But one downside of Alishark is that there is No discount code for now.
Alishark is a good tool for beginners who have no experience with Facebook targeting, but they add a few winning products daily. Which is very much fewer than that of Alishark (they can add over 1000 products daily)
If you are in search of products to sell, then Dropship spy might just be your answer. This is because they offer a lot of product samples to their users. Although, the product research tool is a little restricting; especially for drop shippers who might want to find products themselves.
Overall I think these two dropshipping tools are good in their way. But I would stick my neck out for Alishark as a better value for your money.
