AliExpress in English

Here is a shopping guide for English speakers.

AliExpress – Background

AliExpress is a well known subsidiary of the “Alibaba Group Holding Ltd”. Just a year after their first test site launch in 2009, more than 5 million products had been sold on the online retail service platform.

In the AliExpress of today, buyers from 200 countries can browse more than 9.5 million products from over 10,000 Chinese export and manufacture businesses. The site’s popularity includes their standing as the most visited e-commerce website in Russia.

AliExpress – How it Works

AliExpress is an e-commerce platform that is used for business to consumer transactions, connecting Chinese trading companies with buyers from all over the world. AliExpress separates itself from the parent company, “Alibaba” which deals with custom large quantity orders for the retail market. Instead, the focus is on low volume transactions of stocked products. Meaning that they simply act as the middleman between a buyer and a seller by providing the necessary marketplace infrastructure.

To ensure trust with sellers, AliExpress has put special emphasis on consumer protection and methods to boost buyer confidence. The sellers receive reviews, both in written form and with a five star ranking system.

But most importantly, transaction can be disputed if the product is unsatisfactory. This is done by holding the funds in an escrow until the product has been received and inspected by the buyer. In this way an exceptional level of consumer confidence has been created, largely promoting to the success of the company.

AliExpress – in English

The website is now fully available in the English language. Also the service has been translated to several languages such as Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, Indonesian, French. Additionally easy translation options are offered to many other common languages. Affordable international delivery is also available to most countries throughout the world.

Созданная в 2010 году торговая площадка [] представляет собой интернет-магазин розничной торговли товаров в основном небольших китайских компаний, предлагающих продукцию онлайн покупателям по всему миру. AliExpress является самой посещаемой торговой площадкой в России. Сайт доступен на многих языках, включая русский!

  1. I received a new CC but Aliexpress won’t allow me to cancel out my old number and replace it with my new number. How do I go about changing numbers ?

    • Which payment method are you using? Can you make a completely new order with the new credit card number? I believe only Alipay stores the CC details.

      Please, let me know some more specifics and I’ll try my best to help you out.

  2. I order in late November early December crystal rhinestones and two other items for a wedding I’m doing and one of the items just showed up. Guess what? It’s the wrong item. The wedding is one month away. I don’t have time to wait on a correction or time to play this catch me if you can game. This casted me $25.
    Where’s the contact number? I want to speak with a person who speaks English.

    • Sorry to hear about your experience. I’m afraid they don’t have an English language number to call and the chat isn’t much of a help either. The system is pretty much designed so that you need to contact the seller directly. Or open a dispute to return the item and get a refund.

    • Sure Rahman. Just check the link on the top of this page. Or if you need any other help, just let me know and I’ll do my best to help. Thanks!
