If You Don't Like Quality, Service or Timely Delivery, then AliExpress is for you!

"They took 6 weeks to deliver three lamps that were all badly scratched and two were missing parts. After many, many emails back and forth, they told me they would give a partial refund and told me to take the money and use it to repair the lights and buy the parts that are not available anywhere.

I paid for brand new lights and I got used beat up consignment shop lights.

I would have given them a zero stars if I could.

Order with extreme caution.

"The prices will tempt you, but understand aliexpress is only a Chinese "broker" website. The operate as the "middleman" for US customers or resellers. As such experiences can be WILDLY variable. You could have great luck for years ordering though AE but then you get that one PITA seller and order and that will be your last.
One thing is 100% certain the "alipay" system they use to accept credit card payments will be the reason you never get a chance to order or never return. The system is so unstable I would only ever advise using payment cards with excellent fraud prevention, or use virtual credit card numbers. Make enough orders and inevitably the system will flag your account. This means you'll have to appeal to get it reinstated. The appeal operates under the assumption your a CC fraudster and asks you to scan and upload very personal documents to prove your legitimate. It sounds like they're trying to prevent fraud, but the prevent appeal is random at best and so intrusive you best not to bother and go to MUCH better alternatives such as DHGate. After years of repeat buying and shipping to same address in same name, with credit card I was flagged. CS chat was a complete waste of time as they have no idea why the system decides to flag. Google around and you'll see this is a common problem. Halfway through paying for my order I cannot finish making payment, which make the first part of my order (already reroute) completely worthless.
Do yourself a favor just shop elsewhere unless you feel lucky and have a high level of confidence in chinese cybersecurity.

Do not order!!

"I would never ever ever order from here and I should have listened to all the reviews. I purchased something for $19.50 and never received it. They are fighting with me to get a letter from my post office saying it was never delivered. I ordered in December 2016 it's now march 2017 I still have not gotten my refund!! Shop at your own risk, and plan not to get your money back if anything goes wrong."

Buy at your own risk!

"Only buy if you can afford to lose the money you spend there.

I haven't had troubles with this site for a while, until this year when some of the products I ordered wouldn't ship. Some sellers take too long to process your payment and then suddenly the payment verification time runs out and nothing happens!

They say they will give you a refund, but I still haven't received it and it's been 2 weeks+!!!!!

Their customer service is awful and it's just robots, they're not even humans.

I am sick of dealing with unreliable sellers and I am sick of waiting for my refund because of this, and I will not buy from here again because I am tired.

You get what you pay for. Don't buy from Aliexpress unless you are a business buying large quantities of stock wholesale. You lose more money trying to save money, believe me!

Extremely frustrating Customer Service. Absolutely unfair and neglectful Dispute Resolution Team.

"Very poor customer service (extremely difficult and frustrating to use online chat system).
Absolutely unfair and problematic Dispute Resolution process. There is no way to communicate with their Dispute Resolution team who is absolutely neglectful and groundless in their conclusion. (it is not possible to write to the Dispute Resolution in words, and at the same time they ignore screenshots as the only allowable file format to post them within the system are photo and video files only)
Will not use AliExpress anymore and will not recommend it to any of my friends and others. There are many other good alternatives, with are much better in turmes of customer service and much more fairer in their dispute resolution process than AliExpress.

worst shopping experience ever!!

"Even though I have heard about many bad saying about aliexpress before from several friends, still gave it a try. Well, I have to say it turned out a total disappointment. I ordered 2 tutu dresses for my girl in Dec, the package came 2 months after I ordered and totally wrong sizes, much smaller. Such a waste of money and time!!"

No customer protection!

"I ordered a smart mobile phone from the store ElectronicsKingdom. It is not working properly. AliExpress gave me 'their word' that this issue with the seller will be solved, but they only send an email to the seller and that is it. No reply from neither of them, AliExpress or ElectronicsKingdom whatsoever. Do not trust this site!"

Do not shop here!

"I wish I would have seen the reviews before shopping online. Do not shop on this website. 1. the clothes look nothing like it does online 2. they run small. For example an Large will be the size of extra small here in the U.S. 3. Shipping takes forever. Sometimes 1-3 months. and they even arrive damaged which you will have to pay for shipping to ship it back...TO CHINA! Not even worth it because the shipping will cost more that the item most of the time. They won't give you a prepaid postage even if it's their fault. Then they will try to make a deal with you by saying something like, "you keep the item and ill refund you $3" IM DEAD SERIOUS! 4. When your protection expires because item hasn't arrived in the time span they promised, you will have to dispute it. Once you dispute and you are granted a refund, the refund will not appear. They assure for you to wait up to 20 days. 1 month later for me I still don't see the refund and the customer rep tells me, most of all clients who complain about not receiving their refunds, just failed to see the credit in their account. That's so insulting to me. Like I'm too stupid to understand my bank statements? I looked at it 3 times before I even attempted to reach out to customer service. I am able to filter all credits to my account in the date range I desire. So then they will ask for your bank statements, but you can't provide it pdf. It has to be an image. But then you cant show them on the chat with customer service. You have to wait 1-2 days for an email that they will send which provides a link you can use to upload your documents (that require a conversion). I bet they make it such a hassle that people who are too busy with work and family etc. just say F it, and they get to keep all the money and not send the items. That's how it makes me feel. AGAIN DO NOT SHOP FROM HERE!!!!!!"

"I purchased a computer mouse at JIANGLIANG on Aliexpress.com. Upon arrival, the mouse was damaged. I immediately contacted store about the situation. they requested a photo-- I sent two. months of useless responses whose only objective was to delay me from filing a formal dispute. When I finally did dispute, Aliexpress ruled against me for not providing a photo. (I guess 2 photos = 0) I have tried their ridiculous customer service "chat" option twice to no avail. Please avoid purchasing anything from JIANGLIANG AT ALIEXPRESS. And please spread the word!"

Save your time, save your money

"Takes them five to six days to process, and when you question why, they don't answer, then you say cancel and they don't answer, then five or six days (still not shipped) someone sends and email asking if you still want to cancel while they are actually getting around to shipping so that they do not have to cancel.
They are just a scam broker for Chinese companies that product garbage.

Only smart can order from aliexpress!!

"This Aliexpress India review is done by my personal experience purely.Many people in India say that Aliexpress is a scam because products ordered by them were not delivered.

Many people say that Aliexpress is a scam because products ordered by them were not delivered.

Recently I bought 4 products from Aliexpress & they were delivered perfectly!

Actually, it all depends on the sellers of Aliexpress. You have to figure out that seller is legit or not.
But it has got its own deformities.

In given below you will find all the details!!

Biggest Chinese SCAMMER company

"STAY AWAY from this Aliexpress site !
I bought several items from this site: the fisrt ones (very cheap items e.g. screen protector) were ok, then I become one of their victims.
Here are some of the SCAM SHOPS: BeyondTech-Top-rated Genuine Mobile Phone Store, Hongkong Retevis Store, ...
A lot of Chinese individual, i.e. not serious company, sell the FRAUD products and they are well protected by Aliexpress.
