Here are a few things you should note before doing anything on Aliexpress

To all of the new Aliexpress buyers..

When searching for a product, try clicking the orders desc. button. Most of the shops found this way, are more reliable (depending on the feedback).

Always check for feedback By doing this, it makes you aware of what the goods and the bads of the product could be.

When purchasing a product, don’t expect the best of the best. You get what you pay for.

When you see a product that looks like a “clone/copy/fake” it probably is, which is why the cover it up with photoshop.

Check the feedback for images from other customers to know exactly what the product looks like.

The process of payment goes to Aliexpress first. They hold on to your money until the product has been confirmed received. They then release the money to the seller.

Shipping isn’t always “fast”. It can range from a few weeks to a month.

When you receive your product, always “Confirm Goods Received.”

You are communicating with ESL (english second language) sellers.

If you have any problems with the product, contact the seller with proof. Don’t jump to a dispute.

If you see something on sale with limited quantity, don’t expect to get it 100% of the time. There are probably a handful of people camping for that product too. This happens mostly during their sale events.

If you find a product at X price, there is a chance that there is a cheaper version (quality can vary); Use the Price/v located beside the filters.

Here are a few things that I’ve noticed.

If there is a product that isn’t reviewed, you can still purchase it without any worries (in most cases).

If you are purchasing more than one product from the same seller, you can ask (politely) for a possible discount.

Today’s Deals > Price lowest to highest = a great way to find dumb things to waste money on (changes daily).
