    AliExpress (Alibaba) has its own affiliate program similar to Amazon associates. The question is if someone knows any plugins created for AliExpress that can generate products on your website and keep them updating?

    That could be a nice opportunity for someone that works it right. That is a decent company to work with and has credibility.

    We should have someone here that makes Alibaba sites like they do Amazon sites.

    Smart people use Alibaba/Aliexpress to find manufacturers, and don't quite actually use them to shop.Thats because almost all of the people that sell there are middle man. Speaking from personal experience. When most people see the low prices on Aliexpress they don't realise that they can find the item for much lower price. Same thing is with the shipping. Shipping in both sites is quite expensive.

    Yes, I registered with the program and it looks rather good - easy to navigate panel, additional tools, marketing materilas, etc. But it would be great to find some ready solution, like Amazon affiliate plugins to build Alibaba sites easily.

    Yes, it counts worlwide sales, furthermore, they should be much more profitable then US sales.

    Not yet, but working on it. Now I am just using my affiliate links directly to earn commission. I will let you know when it's ready.

    I have already got everything I need from AliExpress API, so now some coding needed to build the plugin. I hope to finish in next 2-3 weeks. I have not decided yet about selling it. Current goal is to create a good product.

    I heard about payment delays while using other affiliate networks wich work with AliExpress but I know people who work now directly with AliExpress affiliate program and they get their payments regularly.

    I would not recommend using AliExpress through CJ. You get only 1%! It's not worth the effort.

    Can you help me where to get the affiliate links for a certain product? All I see is HTML banners.
