After you decide which products you want to sell, you can add them to your Shopify store. To add dropshipping products to Shopify, you need to add the products to your Import List in Oberlo and then import them into your Shopify store. You can add products to your Import List from your Oberlo admin, from aliexpress.com, or using an AliExpress product URL or ID.
