Aliexpress affiliate program is now one of the best affiliate programs online. I first joined this network shortly after it was launched though commission junction and i had some fairly good success with them until they launched it fully and started working directly with affiliates.

I have been an affiliate of networks like jvzoo, amazon, clickbank and others and the desire to make money money from affiliate commissions made me join aliexpress affliate program.

Recently aliexpress has been making me a fair portion of my affiliate commissions and my commission keeps increasing every month.. Its only a matter of time before it becomes the main source of income for me. I’d love to be able to calculate exactly how much I’ve earned from Aliexpress in the time that i have joined but their current reporting system means unless some products delivered are cleared, the commissions don’t show in my affiliate balance. But overall i make fairly enough commissions monthly which i am happy with.

So while it’s nowhere near my #1 income stream, Aliexpress Affiliate program has certainly been important to me.

Why Many People Don’t like Affiliate Marketing

The usual reasons I hear people giving for not being an An affiliate include:

  • Its hard to set up and certainly some hate to design affiliate websites
  • Most affiliate networks only pay affiliates with PayPal.
  • The commissions are too small. for example amazon start at 4% and Because most people on Amazon buy low priced products like books, so 4% of a $10 product doesn’t add up to a worthwhile commission.
  • Some networks like clickbank don’t accept affiliates from certain country like Nigeria.
  • Some affiliate networks like amazon have only 24 hour cookie period which means you miss out on commissions from people who don’t make up their mind in time.
  • You have to keep posting posts after posts to target different products. etc.

The above reasons are all valid. But with aliexpress, you get an affiliate program where you you don’t have any problems at all.

What is Aliexpress Affiliate Program?

Aliexpress is a B2B ecommerce site launched in April 2010. It is a global retail marketplace targeted at consumers worldwide. They launched their affiliate program in 2013 and since then affiliates world wide have been making money promoting their products.

Aliexpress in the past year has sold more items than eBay and Amazon combined which makes it one of the largest ecommerce sites online.  Join aliexpress program here.

AliExpress now features more than one hundred million products supplied by more than 200,000 exporters and manufacturers. The best thing about AliExpress is that it offers free shipping on almost all products which draws in buyers from all around the world. This helps them make lots of sales and this is definitely a good thing for affiliates.

The main reason I promote Aliexpress product (apart from the obvious fact that it converts for me) are:

  • Trusted brand
  • International
  • Cheap/free shipping items
  • Accept all major payment cards
  • Accept all affiliates anywhere in the world
  • You can promote any product i their store
  • Have vast products to promote
  • 30 day cookie period
  • Easy payment method
  • You get paid for any product someone buys though your link

How AliExpress Affiliate Program Works

AliExpress offers a great platform for affiliate marketing, also known as the Portals Affiliate Program. Through this program, which is completely free, you can get banners and links to promote products and sellers on AliExpress.

Once a link or banner is placed on your site (this can be a website, blog, forum, social media page, direct email, or any other online channel) you can start earning already. If visitors of your site click through to AliExpress and make a purchase, you will receive a commission for this.

Aliexpress has a 30 day cookie period which means you can still get paid for each successful order completion as long as the buyer buys within 30 days of clicking on your promotional link

Searching For Products to Promote

You can go to the aliexpress portal ad center To search for products, click the ad center link and on the left sidebar you can choose category of products to promote.

Obtaining Your Affiliate Link

Aliexpress has banners created for you to add to your website. All you have to do is copy the banner code and add to your website sidebar and you get commission for each successful buys from that banner…



You can also promote via links.. You can create a tracking ID and add that to each link to trace results of each promotion and know which product is giving you sales…



One very good reason why aliexpress is the best affiliate program is because, If a purchase is made for Product B via your promotional link intended for Product A, the commission for that product will still be paid out. So you don’t have to worry if your traffic ends up buying something else. You get paid anyhow.

Best Ways to Promote Aliexpress

You can promote your aliexpress links with a niche website/blogs, via forums, social media, email marketing etc.. Aliexpress allows virtually all major types of promotional methods which makes it a very good program.

The best way to promote your aliexpress links is to build your own e-commerce site and use the aliexpress api which you will incorporate into your website.

This has really helped me make more money with aliexpress program. More on this below…

When and How do I get paid?

Aliexpress pay out commissions between the 10th and 20th of every month once your commission i above $16. Yes, they take $15 transaction fees for each withdrawal and right now, they pay only via international back transfer. This is a good payment method and that means anyone anywhere can get their payment straight into their back account.

All affiliate commissions reflect after buyers have accepted their products and order marked completely successful.

Aliexpress is Not a 9 to 5 Gig

The biggest misconception about making money with a online is you can estimate your earnings based on hours invested.

So it’s not about estimating how much you can earn based on hours spent. Understand this is a business and it’s about working smart, not necessarily the amount of hours you put into it.

All you need to know is how best to use your time and make recurring commissions for a long time. With aliexpress, you can spend few hours a day promoting your store while you have the rest of the day to do whatever you want.

  1. In my view affiliate marketing can be tricky business especially if somebody is a newbie. However, one important aspect of earning money anywhere is to have super targetted traffic to your website. This is by far in my view the most important

    • That’s true Coach Alexander. Traffic is very important and there are many ways to drive traffic to your affiliate site/store. To make money with affiliate marketing, you just go to work hard and find time to drive traffic to your site. There are paid as well as free traffic generation methods. Good paid traffic methods are Facebook ads and Bing ads. You can make a budget of a dollar or two per day on each and you will get results. One good thing is that ads on these two platforms work great for physical products. You can create pages, do SEO to rank your site and store etc. There is a lot of money to be made on aliexpress and the best time to start is now.

  2. Hi! Good for share this information! Thank you. One thing I want to know is it is possible to make the withdraw with a payoneer account? Can you? Is anybody have this experience? Regards.

    • I have not really used the Payoneer account to make withdrawal so i don’t know.. I guess if you can get the bank swift code from Payoneer or the bank that Payoneer uses, then its possible.

  3. Hi, great article! Could you please share url’s to some of your websites? I am thinking about buying the plugin and I would like to see in person how one such site looks like.


  4. Hi, it is me again..
    By browsing I managed to find two of your sites. They look really good and all, but I can’t help to wonder how do you get ranked? I don’t see any blogs targeting any keywords, no reviews, just an online store. So how do you get ranked and get some traffic?

    • Its created like an e-commerce site so Google and other search engines treat it like an e-commerce store.. Its easy to rank for physical products buyer keywords with a a site that looks like an e-commerce store. So you don’t have to build thousands of backlinks to rank. What i do after creating my sites is to get some one way links from different sites including bookmarking sites, external blogs, YouTube etc…

    • You receive your money via bank transfer. You just add your account number and swift code and then you can withdraw your money anytime you make more than $16.

    • Depends on the season and time of the year.. Some times few hundreds and some times i have made thousands especially during the annual holidays and during the yuletide..

    • It varies depending on the time of the year and seasons. Some times hundreds and i have made thousands during the yuletide.

  5. Hi Abiola thanks a lot for your page. However I am having trouble with saving and copying the link how do I do it is it because of the devices that I am using. Please help thanks

    • I dont know which device you use but if its mobile and its android, just find the text you want to copy and paste. Tap and hold on the text. Tap and drag the highlight handles to highlight all the text you want to copy and paste. Tap Copy in the menu that appears. Tap and hold in the space where you’d like to paste the text. Tap Paste in the menu that appears. Thats it

  6. Hi, do you still make money from Aliexpress affiliate? I read that many sites are banned by google due to duplicate content (because Aliplugin). Can you update your journey in this blog? Do you have any style recommendation to avoid duplicate content?

    • I dont think you can be banned with a site created with aliplugin. News sites and other informational websites are always the ones that get attention from Google. Sites created with aliplugin are web stores and since aliexpress does not have problems with sites outranking them i dont think you have anything to worry about.

  7. Hi,

    I’m posting my links and banners, but the option is there no report view. The numbers are updated daily reports? how it works ?


  8. Aliplugin custom website said the income is $8-100 pm average. To get $1700 average income pm, you have to work very hard. Can a simple website earn $1000pm average?

  9. I love this e book and have been trying to be one of the contents (affiliate marketing program) but the fear of not having website always possible me off. Can you please let be a partner in progress? Here is my line :☎08163979121, Popoola Israel. Look forward to hear from you. Thanks

  10. I attempted promoting aliexpress on Facebook recently, I hit up to 800 pv, with 60% bounce rate.
    I expected to see some items to track, but there was none, its been like 2-3 days now.

    Is it possible that there was no sale , or this delay is usual

    Or did I do something differently?

    • Seems that does not work anymore when buying via Clickbank.. If you need to use the discount code then you have to follow the buy link on their website..

  11. Is ali plugin seo optimized? It import all the products automatically just one click by selecting category. Then how to do seo if need? Some article said that if anyone use ali plugin they don’t need to do more seo traffic will automatically come. Is it true?

    • Yes the plugin comes with themes that are SEO optimized.. You have space for adding the site title, description and tags. Since the title, the contents of your page’s tag, is one of the single most important factors for ranking in the search results. Not only is it the literal title of the tab or browser window, it’s also the first line people see in the search results, followed by the URL (or the breadcrumb) and the snippet, usually the meta description combined with a date. This helps with SEO and so you probably dont need any other SEO plugin like All in One SEO plugin etc.. But you still need to drive in traffic to your site and not depend on search engine traffic..

  12. Hi, I am from Pakistan. I want to become an affiliate of aliexpress. But the problem is that how I will recieve payments, because there is no paypal in Pakistan. Please guide me. Thank you very much.

  13. Hi Everybody,

    I want to learn about this program as i have website and i want to place some products from Alibaba site on my web to earn the money so can anybody help me in this regards…

    I have created account but don’t know how to get the product url to place on my Web.

    thank you

    • Its hard to create affiliate links for each product on alibaba. Best thing you can do here is use dynamic ads. If you can get Dynamic Ads are a type of affiliate advertising that allows you to show products based on your website’s content and your visitors’ browsing behavior on Go to the creatives & tools menu in your affiliate dashboard and add your website url and get codes to paste in your website sidebar as banners.. As far as getting affiliate links for each product, i dont know if thats possible now.

  14. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and
    clear your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

    • It actually take days to write some posts.. I sometimes take hours to prepare points to write about.. It’s usually the case with anyone i know.. Just take your time to sit and first write down the main points and it does not matter how many hours or days it takes.
