Tips Before Buying

Shopping on AliExpress might be daunting for new customers, but with some tips, you’d be on your way to a great shopping experience. The first thing to note is no doubt the seller’s reputation. Hover over the ‘detailed seller ratings’ for a quick overview.  Each score on ‘item as described’, ‘communication’ and ‘shipping speed’ is given on a scale, out of five. The higher the number of positive feedback, the more credible the store is.

Before making purchases, be sure to take note of the ‘Product Details’ as well as ‘Shipping & Payment‘ information. If you need a better idea of the product itself, check out the ‘Feedback‘ tab, where reviews are left by fellow shoppers like you. Last but not least, a quick check to the ‘Seller Guarantee‘ section will let you learn about the store’s return policies and delivery times.

Always reach out to the sellers if you have any questions! It’s always better to clear your queries before making a purchase. Reputed stores will no doubt entertain any questions you have.

Daily Flash Deals And Other Collections

There are daily flash deals held every 48 hours, where prices of goods are lowered for a limited amount of time. Quantity is limited as well, so grab them as quickly as you see them. These deals can be found both on the mobile app and desktop version, with the related price-slashes shown on the product itself.

Besides Flash Deals, there are other tabs and collections to be explored, such as the brand new ‘Brand Zone‘, featuring new official stores on AliExpress. Meanwhile, ‘New User Zone’ is a page with massive discounts for new users.

The mobile app boasts of special sales, price discounts, and even different games to win coupons during their large-scaled sales event. Another neat feature of the mobile app is the ability to upload or snap photos of items you would like to purchase; the app will scour the site and look out for similar items that fit the bill. This way, you can shop easily and compare prices wherever you are, whenever you like.
