TIPS to buy from Aliexpress
Buyer must keep the following things in while purchasing a product from Aliexpress.
It doesn’t matter whether you are experienced or first time buyer, These tips will ensure your happy shopping experience.
1. Buy products from the established sellers only:-
One must always try to buy products from established sellers which are selling products from long times and they are also having positive feedback. These sellers care about their reputations and they are always ready to help you in case if some problem occurred with your order.
Expensive items should be purchased from sellers with good reputation, feedbacks and the number of years the shop existed on Aliexpress.
One must check the seller’s description before ordering a product:-
· Years of service
· Top rated sellers
· Positive Feedback
· Number of products ordered from the seller and feedback ratio
2.Communicate with the seller:-
One must contact the seller before making a purchase with the messaging system designed by the aliexpress. You should clear your doubts and ask them for the product details directly.
One should not place order directly after reading the product title and looking at its photos, instead of this one must check the product descriptions and sellers information before making a purchase. Also you can read feedbacks and reviews of the particular products & most of the time the users who have purchased the product share the images of items which are received.
shipping and refund related queries are also mentioned in the product description.
4.Think twice before buying items at lowest available price
We are not stating that this can be a scam but one should check the sellers details and product description carefully before making a purchase, It can be a Chinese replica of the original product.
5.One should avoid free shipping for expensive items
Free shipping is usually sent via China Post and it can take a long time to arrive. There is also a risk for the item being delivered is broken since it spends a long time in transit. One should prefer other shipping services like DHL and EMS for expensive items and you can also ask for shipping insurance if the sellers are ready.
6.Customs duties can be applied
Low cost products usually get passed the eyes of Custom officers, But there are chances that they will ask you for customs charges for expensive products.
Different countries have different customs charges so the seller can’t answer that question. Its better if you compare the orignal price of the product in your country before making a purchase from Aliexpress.
7. check the product before confirming receipt
Once the product is delivered don’t click on confirming the receipt directly. Wait for a day or two and check the product carefully before confirming the receipt. If the problem occurs then ask the seller for the resolution of the problem.
