  • Great app, but sellers can be dishonest.


    By kreusalel
    I’ve had a lot of really great experiences on aliexpress, but a handful of poor experiences have really caused me to be bitter. Most of the sellers are honest, and fair, but many of them are thieves. Aliexpress almost always takes the buyers side in disputes, but they also give the sellers many ways to extort the system. After buying an item from one such seller, they immediately messages me and told me that they wouldn’t be sending me the item I ordered, because I had used a coupon, and it would reduce their profit by $1. I have no problem with them declining my order, but they then asked me to cancel the order, (in the hope that I would cancel the order and receive negative feedback on my account, rather than them canceling the order and taking the hit.) rather than having the negative marks on my account, I waited till the item never came. they got to keep my money for almost two months before aliexpress would allow me to open a dispute, and leave feedback. Sneaky sellers ruin this app. Aliexpress would be well off to give buyers more power in situations like this. The other negative feedback I have, is that there is no way to reach a human being. You cannot contact a live person, from aliexpress. If a seller has taken advantage of you, there is no way to report them. That being said, aliexpress has been a great way for me to find products. I will never use them for important purchases, but for silly things, they do just fine.
  • It’s like Christmas everyday!


    By BaconBiscuitz
    I can wait to get to my mailbox to see what has come today. I am a diamond member, I suggest start out slow so you learn how this app works. Learn how to go to the store itself and look at its rating. I only order from stores that rate a 4.8 or above. Look at the pictures that the customers post in the ratings and read what they say. Shipping is long if it’s free and sometimes is not tracked. Pay for better shipping methods if you can. Read the description and the specifications!! The pictures are deceiving, it looks like you get hundreds, and then receive 5. Contact the store owner if you have questions they are extremely helpful and can customize your order at times. If you receive something in error, which is rare, contact the seller first, do not file a dispute unless they don’t respond. Coupons can be applied, they are hard to figure out sometimes. Get used to using your account. You must confirm your orders when you receive them. I like reviewing what I have received and take pictures when I can so other shoppers can see what you actually get. I have ordered from hundreds of stores and have had only 2 errors!! My orders are usually for crafting. Be careful with sizes, they usually run small. Electronics are probably a risky purchase. Best advice: Read the specifications! Read the descriptions!! Have fun receiving Christmas every day!
  • My favorite app!


    By KarolinaDean
    I LOVE AliExpress! When I come across anything I like on other shopping sites, I always check AliExpress and usually find the same item or something so similar that any difference(s) is so minor that it’s unimportant. And the items on AE’s app are usually a far better price. I’m a visual artist and crafter and, if I can wait out the delivery time (which is sometimes only 2-4 weeks, but usually 1-1/2 to 2 months), I’ve found countless fabulous deals on supplies, tools, even DIY project kits. I’ve also been able to create an awesome wardrobe of stylish, cutting-edge clothing, shoes, accessories and costume jewelry, for remarkably affordable prices. I really needed to fashionably express myself after turning 40 and going through a divorce a few years back, and have been able to do so without wasting my money on fast fashion, fads or boring “middle-aged lady” clothes. They have “middle-aged lady” clothes if that’s what you want, but the possibilities are endless. And the app is so user-friendly. I’m getting married again (to someone wonderful this time) and have even found and purchased my exquisite, perfectly made wedding gown and reception dress, plus shoes and accessories as well as many of our decorative elements, on the AliExpress app. I can’t recommend this app highly enough. I love love love it!
  • Good app but...


    By mitchkyng75
    It’s a great app and a great place to shop but not all sellers are cooperative. I just had a seller June electronicity/Junnuo tech. Store took their time getting back to me and was slowly helping me. It was like they were stretching the return limit so you’d end up with a faulty product. Then after I told them what was wrong and sent a video of the obnoxious noise it was making. They told me that “ it’s a normal sound my friend” which wasn’t supposed to sound like that at all, so they will give faulty advice as well. Very sneaky and unscrupulous. Many other seller have done the same or had another tactic. But I had no idea that 15days after you get product there’s no return etc. the seller was being politely unhelpful and ended up with a brand new product that runs like it is 15yrs old. They wouldn’t help and was being childish. This was just my last mishap with a seller I’ve lost so much money on this site it’s sad. I would highly recommend only buying once and a while when they have better prices or sales. But I would suggest you just go to eBay cause same sellers but they have to follow American rules and policies. So be very careful there are good sellers that don’t try to trick you but there are very unscrupulous sellers on this site as I imagine they did this to just me I’m sure they tricked others as well. I usually compare prices then if I have to order from here I will but typically go elsewhere.
  • Be diligent in your research


    By Jennifer Denton
    The old saying is true that if it seems too good to be true then usually it is. I have doubt that this app is no exception. There are a few things that I have received and found them to be a good bargain. But oftentimes in order to get decent items, you’re paying close to what you would in a store near you. I’ve found that often times companies will take pictures very close up to an object to make it appear larger than it is so when you receive it you are really aggravated that it is so small. No wonder it was so cheap. And finally, I’ve found that there are shops you must watch out for because they have marketed something as theirs only to find out they have stolen it from another artist in another part of the world and there’s not a whole lot that can be done about it. But I can’t help but laugh at the USA when they outsource their products to make a bigger profit because all they have done is given the opponent their secrets and they just produce it under their name and make them a competitor. I used to like this app but I’m not near as fond of it as I once was. Also, I’ve had to file a lot more disputes because of either not getting something or getting a defective product. Finally, the shipping has become much more expensive in the past six months. You have to be careful of that now. So it is what it is and you get what you pay for in the long run.
  • Great savings on carbon bicycle parts


    By Hanale63
    I recently started using AliExpress for name brand bicycle parts at a great price. So far I’ve received everything I’ve purchased from this website. Most everything comes from China so there’s an extra wait time to receive stuff. If you use the mobile app you sometimes can save a little extra then using the website. You’ll be amazed how much you can save from buying from China. Lots of things are brand name items and the items that aren’t brand the quality is real good. Most everything you buy in the US comes from Asia anyway. You just cut out the middleman. AliExpress is easy to use. Most all the sellers respond to your questions so you can ask anything before you buy. There English is a little broken so you’ll have to read between the lines. Just be sure to check the sellers feedback before you buy. You’ll want to be sure to buy from a reputable seller with a good history. I’ve purchased a carbon wheel set for $500 where the name brand wheels would cost $2,500. The ride quality is great no complaints. If you do have an issue support will freeze the payment to the seller until the issue is resolved and you have control to release the funds to the seller or get a refund.
  • Fantastic Website!


    By Aggie90Lucky13
    I love AliExpress! It has all the up to date fashion at super low prices! They also sell electronics, car parts, jewelry, shoes, office supplies and more. You can upload a picture of anything you are interested in buying and can almost always find the exact product on here at a fraction of the price. Sometimes you can find an item similar to what you were looking for that you like even better! I’ve been buying from AliExpress for a little over a year and the low prices and great quality make it addicting! You won’t be disappointed and the sellers in the individual stores are always helpful answering any questions about the item prior to purchase. Most items on the site have FREE shipping as well! A+ app! Can’t go wrong with AliExpress. You do have to wait for items to ship from China but it is minimal. Most items arrive within 7-21 days, and again with free shipping in most cases. Give AliExpress a try but uploading an image of something you’ve been interested in purchasing and see for yourself!
  • Ali Express App Review


    By Ssodagi
    For the most part the app works well as other apps of the same type. However, there are times I am looking for something and it totally misunderstands what I am telling it in the search. The other problem I see, is that there’s no way to track your shipment once it leaves China. I waited almost 5 months before I got my last order. Don’t worry though, usually it doesn’t take this long; probably due to the pandemic. Another thing that is very difficult to do, is to review stamps (for paper crafts/scrapbook) and metal dies, because they have the same name and it doesn’t not show if you are leaving the review for the stamp or the metal cutting Dies. The last thing that is very aggravating, is that when you’re order is missing still and you want to put a dispute an order, you have to put a dispute for each individual item in your order; it will not let you dispute the entire order and this is extremely time consuming when you have a very large order. There are boxes to let you check them individually or as an entire order but there’s no button that lets you do the entire order. And it’s the same when you receive your item; even if you get the whole shipment in one envelope. If these things get fixed I’ll probably will give it 5 stars.
  • Sometimes confusing


    By Rhett7427
    There are a lot of sales and the discount coupons are very confusing. I collect a lot of points but don’t use them too much. You never know if you have the one for the store you want. I usually just don’t buy things because of that. The coupon plus a 0.01 sales items appear to start at 2 AM here. Needless to say I never get any of them. I guess they aren’t meant for the customers on the east coast or mid western states of the US. It’s the middle of the night here. There is also a problem with items advertising one thing and when you get to the page it’s three or 4 times more expensive for that item. You get a much smaller , scaled down item for the advertised price. Also they will call it cashmere and then when you get to the site and check the specs it says polyester. So I don’t buy that either. That’s illegal in the US. It’s called bait and switch. I’ll go find it elsewhere. It may cost a little bit more but I know for sure what I’m getting. When I find a good place that has quality items for a good price I tend to stick with that store. They may cost a few dollars more but I know they are a reputable store and I won’t get junk, it will be something I can use or give as a gift. I have bought some very nice things on the app
  • Pathetic


    By Night Goth
    I am giving this app and company only 2 stars because AliExpress services does not help you with any of the disputes that you may have with sellers, and it takes the sellers forever just to get back to you if they even care about getting back to you. AliExpress company does have a lot of products for sale but when it comes time to purchase a item and the sellers take your money with no problem but, when it comes to the refund of it back to you when you don’t receive the item it can become very problematic to the point that you may have no choice but to call the authorities in the country in which you are having the problem, the biggest thing that AliExpress needs to fix in my opinion is the way and speed the cancellation of an item works and being able to remove or delete the items from your “ to be paid “ list my opinion is that AliExpress needs to become a lot faster when it comes to helping people with disputes and forcing the sellers to refund money faster, along with updating the ability to remove items from the - to be paid for - list if you no longer desire it, but the biggest thing I would like to be able to see changed is the ability to see all of my past purchases on a separate list so if I want to buy it again then I can find it easier
