If you're buying large and heavy item, then you might have to pay customs and taxes in your country if you choose premium shipping.
So what I'm buying is fittings and case fans like this, https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Blac...7b773c00Sw7b5v. Light weight right? Well just for that 1 piece its $46 to ship DHL in 6-13 days. That's 6x's the cost of the piece! It seems that you should pay shipping based on the entirety of your order, not piecemeal. Still, price is amazing!

One of my friend in who lives in usa told me that he gets his aliexpress items delivered by usps safely but takes 7-8 weeks. What you can do is use chinapost with tracking, once it reaches usa, it will be handed over to US postal service.
The important thing to note is that the GTX780 was stolen WHILE IN USPS custody. It was never delivered. When I filed a lost package inquiry the USPS found the one side of the box w/the address label and nothing else. I'm of the opinion the seller had the ebay auction number listed on the shipping label and that's how the USPS postal employee(s) figured out a valuable video card was in the box.

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

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.

bmgjet 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"
