Online sellers can now access AliExpress' vast wholesale inventory, receive special deals and contact vendors from anywhere, at any time with the debut of AliExpress' iPhone app.
With the AliExpress app, resellers can browse through the millions of products listed on AliExpress.com, get special deals on items with the app's SuperDeals feature, see best-selling products and recently viewed items, and check on the status of their orders, AliExpress notes. This includes seeing exactly where items are in transit.
Merchants can even contact the vendors they're working with—or thinking of working with—with the app's "Chat now" feature.
"Since most people are on the go, it only makes sense for e-commerce companies to create mobile sourcing outlets for them to go to," notes the AliExpress blog. "In this busy world, it's important to keep small-business owners and consumers up to date on the latest products and pricing. Thanks to [the] new application, accessing China's leading online wholesale marketplace is no longer dependent on when and where someone can get a computer."
The app is free and available for download on iTunes.
