Is it legal to use AliExpress product videos
The Berne Convention, which establishes international copyright law, has China as a signatory.
As a result, any video produced in China is protected by copyright in all Berne Convention nations, including almost definitely your own.
Without authorization, you have no legal right to utilise AliExpress videos.
Simply ask for permission. Most vendors, I’m sure, would appreciate it if you promote their store.
Because the majority of them use an internet translator, make phrases basic and unambiguous, otherwise, the meaning may be lost.
What is AliExpress?
AliExpress is a marketplace with a large selection of products that online retailers can offer in their shops. The prices in demand are often particularly competitive. Even if AliExpress positions itself as an online retailer, AliExpress sellers know that many of their customers do dropshipping.
AliExpress makes it easy to find products to sell through your shop without worrying about inventory or shipping. You can shop here at wholesale prices and then have them delivered directly to your customers via dropshipping.
Why dropshipping with AliExpress?
AliExpress is a huge marketplace with a large selection of products that you can offer in your shop. Since most AliExpress retailers are overseas producers, their prices are particularly competitive.
Even if AliExpress positions itself as an online retailer, most retailers on the platform know that the majority of their customers are resellers and are much more interested in dropshipping.
Drop shipping is also very easy with AliExpress.
There are no upfront costs or fees, so you can test products with no financial commitment. With AliExpress or Oberlo you can start dropshipping today – for free.
Many merchants on AliExpress have high quality product photos that you can use on your own website. In addition, there are often detailed product descriptions that can help you when presenting the products in your shop.
Last but not least, dropshipping with AliExpress is child’s play: after you have received an order, you order the corresponding product on AliExpress and enter the address of your customer.
In the following we will explain in more detail how all of this comes together, what you should look for when choosing a dealer and how you can position yourself with a view to sustainable success. In fact, it’s not much more complicated than what we’ve already described above. Once you’ve set everything up, dropshipping with AliExpress is great for getting started with online sales.
Why someone will buy for your site when he/she can buy the same product on AliExpress?
With a dropshipping business through AliExpress, your competitive advantage will not be your price or your unique branded products.
“Your competitive advantage will lie in the ability to reach your customers in front of your competitors.”
The whole thing is called retail arbitrage.
Good marketing and reaching customers before anyone else can be a competitive advantage. You can also offer your customers more value by building a real brand (how to do it, read here), create unique content, and provide great customer service.

Yo thanks a lot, I don’t know why they would disable downloading videos… It’s litterally how people create ads and such to dropship.
Hi, I followed the instructions however the find tool could not locate the .mp4. I looked myself and I do not see the .mp4 either. Could it be another file type?
All Aliexpress videos are in .mp4 format only. Try refreshing the page or open it in another browser. Check the video tutorial here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEXa48YpBx4
No, it’s always in .mp4 format. Try using a different browser or refreshing the page. It will definitely work.
Hi, I do have the same problem. I cannot see the same screenshot that you posted on step #5.. it’s a different window, there’s nowhere for me to type .mp4 to search for it
Try using chrome or firefox browser. Once you land on the inspect page , Ctrl+F and Type .mp4.
This will highlight the link containing the .mp4 extension.
I did the same and after clicking on inspect I get a very different screen. It is black and CTRL+F does not bring the text box I am expecting, actually no search box appears.
Really appreciate your tips, you are a genius!!
How can you do this in a Mac?, maybe it’s just compatible with Microsoft..?
It depends on the browser you are using. Try using firefox or google chrome. It works perfect on Mac.
