Best shipping on AliExpress?

I do not know where this post should be placed, so if this isn't it please move it to the correct spot. My question is for all those members who've shopped successfully on AliExpress.com, how was your shipping cost? Is it better to buy everything from one "store" or to just look for the lowest shipping? I have over $200 in a cart all with 1 store and the shipping is over $60 and coming at different times. Anyone with experience/knowledge with this site please help. Thx

Hi,
Best policy is to not use aliexpress at all.

And why would you need too
There are too many items in the U.S. for messing with it.

Main reason is for pricing like this:
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

vs.

https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro..._5773484.pic_3

Same product/product number, helluva price difference. I'm guessing you've had a bad experience with aliexpress? What happened to turn you off of them? Just getting into WC and have seen others mention that site. That is the reason I checked it them out.

I'm not sure where you're ordering from, but AliExpress offers a standard shipping rate if I order things above $60 regardless of what store I order it from.

As far as product themselves go, I've ordered a few hundred $ worth which have been pretty consistent with whatbis discribed, but like third party sellers on Amazon, you need to read reviews. If you receive a bad product though, the claims are pretty fast as well.

#2 their debt is insane, even for a "diverse field" company. They cannot even afford to service the debt maintenance let alone make an actual dent in the debt itself. - Internet Stranger

Hi,
Bad example of an item
Rotary fittings aren't something one should skimp on they are already bound to leak anyway newegg gouges on most items
Shipping as said 3+ weeks keep that in mind rma won't be any faster matter of fact twice as long both ways or pay extremely more as you say 60.us for shipping is silly.

I buy fittings at a local micro center who cares how much they are if there is a defect I take it back.

Shipping from 1 seller will be combined just like any other selling platform. If you buy from multiple sellers then of course you pay each seller shipping for the bunch of items you're buying from them. It's the same as eBay or Amazon. The problem is almost nothing is on Amazon beside popular western products and scammers/resellers etc. On eBay you get plenty of Asia made products but not everything. On Aliexpress you get a lot of items you won't find for sell elsewhere, at least not on English speaking sites. After that you're either on Alibaba direct to supplier or one of many Chinese encrypted websites. If you can't find it even there then you gotta go to China for it XD

Shipping offered varies per seller. For cheap items, free/cheap snail post is what I use, for expensive items a DHL may even be necessary with no cheap shipping available.

Many things can be found direct from Asia at reasonable prices while you would have to pay arm and leg for it locally, or you can't find it locally at all is far more common anyway. The whole manufacturing supply chain has moved to Asia thanks to stupid politicians.

For me if its not free shipping then why use ali-express. Sure it takes 5 weeks to get to where I live but if I wanted something quick id get it locally or off ebay and pay for shipping.

The ammount of stuff I buy off ali-express I some times forget what iv even got coming and the one day it will be in the letterbox and im like. "Oh yeah I remember buying this"

Remember, you can bargain prices on aliexpress even after adding to cart. Most of the items get delivered within 12 days by post (free shipping) to my country India. Delivery can be much longer for US and other country. You can discuss with seller about best shipping method. If your order is more than 200usd worth, then u can bargain as much as 40 usd less from 200usd order.

Using DHL / fedex shipping can result in customs and taxes in ur country. If u are in US, then USPS is safest method but slow
