Everyone knows that Aliexpress have some clone versions of different products but some people don’t know about this and they complain after their purchase. (Read the product description carefully)

Note: Clone versions would work perfectly and its affordable in many cases.

Store Coupons and Promotional Sale


There are many coupons available for the different store. So don’t miss to check the store for any available coupons. The new user has a coupon for their first purchase.

Payment Method

Visa / Master card (with international transaction enabled) is essential for Transactions.

Shipping Time and Methods


Aliexpress has many types of shipping method like DHL, EMS, AliExpress standard and free shipping(Month or more) for most of the products. For faster Shipping Method you would have to pay money if the seller doesn’t offer the same with free.

If you cant afford huge shipping charges go for atleast China Post Ordinary Small Pocket Plus which is quite fast in most of the cases (21 days in my case).

Tips for Buying Good Products

Most importantly just looking at the pictures we can judge the whole product some of the parts shown might be included for display purposes .so one must read the description before buying any products.

  1. Look for maximum sellers, there are more than 1 lakh sellers unlike in other shopping websites so there would be another seller providing same product for the lesser price.
  2. Always choose the product after looking into the reviews.
  3. Choose the seller with maximum ratings.
  4. If you need fast shipping additional money should be spent on shipping.

In my personal experience, all products I purchased are worth for money and worked well.
