What is the "Product Research" feature?

The AutoDS Product Research Tool has been developed to significantly simplify product research, product finding, and product importing. 

It is a separate system built into our AutoDS platform and can only be accessed through your AutoDS account.

This tool provides easy access to the trendiest and best-selling products from AliExpress and Amazon and saves you hours on product search and product testing.

Additionally, once you’re ready to import, you can do so straight from within the AutoDS platform with just a click of a button. 

Furthermore, you can pair this new tool with our AutoDS Product Finder as it does not replace it, since the features are quite different. 

The main difference between the two is that, unlike the AutoDS Finder, the AutoDS Product Research Tool is not automatic. 

The Finder feature chooses random hot products for you automatically. All you need to do is select your desired supported supplier, choose how many items you'd like it to find and import for you, and how many sales you'd like to get from each product. 

As for the Product Research tool, it is much more customizable due to its focus on research filters. By offering various product filter options such as price and category, it helps you dig deep into profitable products, niches, and more. 

How to use the "Product Research" feature?

Here is how to get started.

Once you’re logged in to your account, switch over to the Product Research Platform to start selecting new products to import to your store.

After you switched from the platform to the product research, you’ll see this:

By default, you start on the ‘All Products’ page. This is where you can scroll through all existing product options from all categories shown below. 

Additionally, you have a few ways of navigating and narrowing down your search. 

  • Search Bar—Type to search for a specific niche or product using the search bar up top. 
  • ‘Sort by:’ Options


  • Various Filters - 

As mentioned, besides the ‘All Products’ search section, products are divided into a few general categories. 

  • Popular Products
  • New Products
  • Holiday Products (Perfect for Q4 but can be used throughout the year)
  • US Suppliers
  • Chinese Suppliers

Popular Products

When searching for products from within ‘Popular Products’ the main filters automatically implemented are rating and amount of reviews. 

You can also use the same filter options available on the ‘All Products’ page.

This way you know you’re selecting products that have proven to sell and are quality products with a high customer satisfaction rate. 


New Products

Under ‘New Products’, you will find the newest (most recently added) recommended products. 

At the top of the page, a “Last Updated Date” will be shown, along with the filter options, and the “Sort by” option on the right hand side. 


Holiday Products

Under 'Holiday' category you will find products that are related to holiday period such ad Christmas, Thanksgiving and more.


For a more general search approach, we have two categories based on supplier location. This section will include all products of said supplier:

US Suppliers

Select ‘US Suppliers’ to quickly find profitable products from Amazon. (more suppliers coming soon) 

China Suppliers 

Select ‘China Suppliers’ to quickly find profitable products from AliExpress. (more suppliers coming soon) 

Additionally, in each product category, you can pair filters and search multiple filters simultaneously. 

Click ‘Add Filter’ to select your desired filter option. It will save and appear above. By adding multiple filters, you can then use the ‘Match All’ or ‘Many Any’ feature.

To reset your search, simply click ‘Clear All’. 


For all displayed items from any category, the item info and specifications are as follow:

  • Product Title
  • Product Image
  • Item Cost 
  • Retail Price
  • Estimated Shipping Time
  • Supplier/Marketplace
  • Supplier Name

How to import a product to your store?

Now to our favorite part. Once you find a product you’d like to import, click the ‘Import Product’ button found on the bottom of each product listed. 

As soon as you click, AutoDS imports the product and creates a draft import that will be ready for you to edit and optimize on the ‘Drafts’ page.

To continue to the next step, head back to the AutoDS platform as shown below and go to the ‘Drafts’ page:
