CJ Dropshipping is a comprehensive website to help every dropshippers from start to success. Product sourcing, warehousing, order processing and shipping, literally everything involved.
In this tutorial, we will show you how all of these work on our website.

Main parts of CJ's work:
1. Product Sourcing;
2. Store Authorization;
3. Product Listing/Connection;
4. Automatic Order Import;
5. Order Upload via Excel/CSV File & Place Orders Manually.

To make all things more clear, we create a simple flowchart to cover the general steps:

Here we also prepared one video for your reference:


1. Product Sourcing.
The very first question you may have is about your product. You can search it simply by the product name to see if your product exists at CJ. If not, please just post us a sourcing request.

For the new beginners, sourcing on "Individual Product" is more suitable, since "Store Existed Product" is for users with authorized stores. (Details about our sourcing service can be viewed here.)

When you have the product details and are satisfied with our offer, the next thing is orders. However, there are two different order processing methods depending on if you have authorized stores to CJ.
If you are interested in our automatic order processing, then it's necessary for you to learn "Store Authorization" and "Product Listing/Connection".
If not, you can simply skip to part 5 "Order Upload via Excel/CSV File & Place Orders Manually".

2. Store Authorization.

There are five types of stores available to be integrated into CJ. They are ShopifyeBayWooCommerceLazadaShopee stores. For every store type, we have made the general and detailed authorization steps available on the same page.

Fill in the information.


3. Product Listing/Connection
In order to identify the products from your store orders, we need to create a connection between your products and these at CJ. If the product doesn't exist in your store, our listing feature is a great help. Simply click the "List" button on the CJ product page and set some details. The product will be added to your store and an automatic connection will be established.

If the product has already been in your store, a product connection is required. (Please refer to this video for detailed guidance.)

Search the product in your store and connect it with us.

4. Automatic Order Import.  
When you finish store authorization and product connection, orders on these products from your store will be pulled into your CJ account automatically.
Select the orders you want in Imported Orders > Orders you want us to deal with and add them to the cart. Confirm your selected orders and make a payment, then we will take care of everything afterward.

5. Order Upload via Excel/CSV File & Place Orders Manually.  
For users without any authorized stores, there're two ways to send us your orders: one is by uploading a spreadsheet.
In this case, you have to add the products to the SKU list, which is also can be achieved on the product page.

Then choose "Import Orders from Excel effectively" on Dropshipping Center > Imported Orders > Orders page and download the template to fill in your order details.

When your orders are uploaded, you need to add them to the cart and pay for them.  

The other way to send us your orders is to Create Orders Manually.
Please copy the SKU or product title of the product in CJ and go to Dropshipping Center > Imported Orders > Orders > Create orders by searching product > Search the product > Select variants and quantity > Add > Next.

Input the information of the receiver. Then confirm and pay for the order.

Search for the product and add it.


Confirm the product and click "Next."

Fill in the information and confirm.

We will process the orders immediately upon receipt. Tracking numbers and after-sale service are also available for every order.
If you have any uncertainties when you are using CJ, please contact our online agent for help.
