9 Things to consider before buying products from AliExpress

One of the good things about Aliexpress is that you can find the same product sold by several different sellers. That is a great advantage because it is a wide offer, but it can also give you more headaches when choosing best Aliexpress products. Let's see some of the elements to consider when choosing:

  1. Always shop with established sellers.

Always try to buy from sellers who have long been selling and have a good reputation.These vendors mostly care about their qualifications and are willing to help you in case there is a problem with your order.You should also see the ratings they received from other buyers of the same item.If the rating is good overall, you may have found a good seller to buy.

  1. Read the full details in the product description.

Many times you will find good and useful information in the description of the article.You should not place the order just by looking at the title and the photos of the product, instead you should read the description in detail, that is where there may be certain explanations that the seller has left for the buyers.

For example, the seller can indicate the characteristics, specifications, compatibility, product quality and whether it is a replica or an original product.

  1. Seller's warranties

For many items, sellers offer their own set of warranties. On the other hand, one thing that you should definitely look for before buying expensive and branded items such as cell phones (iphone, galaxies etc) is the original warranty policy.

If you discover that a product is fake and falls under this warranty, you have to receive a full refund (sometimes, shipping included).

  1. Contact the seller before buying.

Before making a purchase, contact the seller using the chat or messaging system that AliExpress provides you.

Always clarify and clear any doubts regarding the article in which you are interested, whether it is product details, shipping or delivery. Always ask.

Some ads or listings do not mention the product brand and some others may have the same spelling identical to a brand product.

These items can be imitations of brands that are why you must confirm it with the seller if this is the case.

  1. Doubt the products too cheap.

If you think that the price of a particular item is much lower than its actual value, it is better to avoid it. These are probably Chinese imitations or clones that look like a genuine product, but that really aren't.

You have seen iphones and branded products that are worth a quarter of the normal retail price. When something is too good to be true it is because it generally is.

That is why we always consider the points we saw earlier, if you think maybe this is a replica or a clone it is because maybe it is.

  1. Avoid free shipping for expensive items.

Free Shipping is usually done through the National Post service and it takes a long time to arrive.

There is also a latent risk that items will be delivered broken or damaged or not even reach their destination.

While free shipping is fine for low-priced products, preferably choose some decent shipping service (DHL, EMS, etc.) when buying items with high prices.

Also ask the seller if he handles shipping insurance.

  1. Do not open a dispute before receiving your items.

AliExpress allows you to dispute a transaction in case you are not satisfied with the products purchased or if you do not receive them within the expected delivery date.

You only have one opportunity to dispute a transaction and you should not lose if the seller is talking more time in the shipment of the merchandise.

This is an easy method adopted by a large number of vendors to keep them safe from disputes that arise in the future.

  1. Use your dispute before confirming the order as received.

When you receive your product, do not get too excited and confirm receipt of the item immediately.

Use and test your product for a day or two before confirming receipts. If there is a problem with the item received, contact the seller and ask for a resolution.

If the answers you are receiving from the seller is not at all useful, contact or chat with one of the AliExpress customer service and support representatives and mention the problem.

Once you do this, they will usually suggest that you open a dispute against the seller.

When your dispute has been resolved. Leave your comments summarizing your experience with the product and the seller.

Leave a negative rating (1-2 stars) if you are not completely satisfied and if you liked the product and had no anomaly at the time you received and tried it, do not forget to leave your comments too.

Be generous and leave a positive feedback for the product /seller. This will help the buying and selling system stay healthy and help decide other buyers interested in the same product.
