i wanted to buy funny toy but no come to my house my money gone !
Too much duty on 3d printer CR10
Custom department charged me too much for a 3d printer I bought from aliexpress seller. It cost me more than the local stores. I know its not Aliexpress fault but the issue is worth mentioning.
Keep the customs duty in mind while ordering anything from aliexpress.
Bought more than 10 items, all received
By: Shahid Majeed
Aliexpress is a reliable website. I have bought more that 10 different items from different stores on aliexpress snd received every one of them. Never had any issues so far. I usually order electronics circuits and components which are hard to find locally.
Cash on delivery not available
By: Azam Idrees
I like Aliexpress but I had a few instances in which my payment was kept with the seller but the seller didn't send me anything. Although I got my payment back, that only happened after a few months which is a turnoff for me. I would be more comfortable with Aliexpress if they start the COD services. That will only pay upon dropshipping and i am sure aliexpress will get more customers that way.
Minimum prices for almost everything
Very good market. I like aliexpress. It is my first choice to order the items i need. I have yet to see a product that i couldn't find on Aliexpress in better price. Just need to see reviews and order from the worthy buyers.
Free shipping vs aliexpress standard shipping
Always use aliexpress standard when possible. Even though it costs more, it gives you a better tracking option and your order is less likely to be lost. I only use free shipping for he items that cost less than 10 dollars. Although I myself never lost and item even with free shipping but some of my friends have lost their items. Aliexpress is very honest website and they themselves never deceive anyone, usually the delivery people don’t deliver items if they don’t have tracking.

Aliexpress has very quick refund system. I placed an order which was cancelled by the seller due to stock issue. The amount I paid returned to my bank account immediately after the cancellation. I am impressed!
Aliexpress price error
I have placed an order on aliexpress but the seller now insists me to increase the price and says that the price was shown less due to price error. I placed an order only because the price was low otherwise i woudnt be placing an order. I had to cancel my order in the end, If there was an error in the system then aliexpress should fix it otherwise the should take action against such sellers. My coupon was wasted due to this issue so i am not happy.
Aliexpress image search is very handy
I like aliexpress image search, it is very handy because most of the things we find in local stores are imported from china so I can just take a picture of a product and use aliexpress image search to find it’s actually price. This puts me in better bargaining position or I can even decide to buy it from aliexpress if the price difference is too much. The only issue with aliexpress is the long shipment delay which is annoying.
Order closed and payment refunded
My order keeps getting closed and my payment is refunded immediately after the order is closed. I am a bit frustrated as my card is completely legit and is in my name. I don't know why aliexpress keeps refunding and closing the order. Upon contacting their support, they want me to send them the photo of my card and my national id card. I am a bit skeptical to send them my info as I haven't used their services till now. Dont know what to do.
Always Select Cheapest Way to Ship When Under $10
I recommend all aliexpress users select the cheapest shipping option if the item they buy is below $10. However anything above that, I recommend you to at least select Aliexpress standard shipping. I have learned this the hard way so mentioning it here in the hope to help someone.
And for those people who have aliexpress dropshipping option available in their country, they should use it instead of any other option.
Coin Game is not Available on Desktop
I am a bit disappointed that the Aliexpress coin game cannot be played on the desktop website. This is strange because usually, desktop websites can use more resources so I don't see why their coin game cannot run on their desktop website.
Payment Failed for the third time
I have used same card to buy things in past on aliexpress but now I get a payment failed message. I tried to contact the support but it just allows me to chat with AI based chat robot support options instead of giving an option to contact and actual person. Its getting frustrating now as my card is rejected for the third time. I have done a test transaction on another website which went fine so it is definitely and Aliexpress Issue.
Aliexpress system error csc_7200026
By: W. Shah
I have seen csc_7200026 whenever I try to use a coupon. But surprisingly it automatically resolves after a couple of days. If you are also seeing a csc_7200026 error while making a payment, wait for a couple of days and then try again. Hopefully, your payment will go through. I have never seen this error when I purchase items without any coupon. Maybe it is there to discourage users to use coupons, users in hurry will try to remove the coupon and buy without it and users like me will keep trying for a few days and will eventually be able to buy the item at a discounted rate.
Received my 11th order, AliExpress Rocks
Aliexpress is actually a resource for people like me who need electronics related parts. It has a huge collection of items and almost anything can found on Aliexpress . I habe so far placed 12 orders out of which i received 10, one is being shipped and one order amount was refunded by the seller due to inventory issues.
Aliexpress is definately a trustable platform, its a gem for buyers like me.
Try to use Aliexpress standard shipping when buying expensive items
I am buying from aliexpress for many years and there is absolutely no doubt that Aliexpress itself is a completely legitimate website. Most of the sellers with good ratings and reviews in 4 figures are also genuine. However, s**t happens sometimes which is mostly caused by shipping companies. Free shipment options are only suitable for items that are less than $10 or max $15. Anything over that and you should probably consider Aliexpress Standard Shipping. It is much safer and trackable. Your items won't get lost and if they do, you are guaranteed to get a refund.
Unable to exchange coins for products
Aliexpress has a daily sale which allows to exchange your coins for products. But there is something wrong with this sale. No mater how hard i try, i still cannot catch the products in time. As soon as the sale starts , the products become sold.
Apart from that sale, the only other use of coins is to exchange them for coupons. Strangely now the option to exchange coins for coupons is also removed or atleast i am unable to find it in my aliexpress App.
Now i dont know what to do with ali express coins.
Coupon Declined CSC_7200053 Error
My new user coupon declined. I was offered a coupon to use on my first purchase which convinced me to use Aliexpress. When I tried to pay for the order, I got the following error
we have to cancel this order due to security issues
please place the order again or remove the coupon and try again
Why should I place the order at full price? I was offered a coupon by Aliexpress and when I used it, they declined! Is it a trick to get a client on board?
I am not going to use Aliexpress again!
A lot of fraud sellers exist on Aliexpress
I had two instances of attempted fraud by sellers on Aliexpress. I dont say that all of them are scams but atleast 20 to 30 percent sellers are fraudulent. Always check Aliexpress ratings and reviews for a seller before buying something. Never trust a seller no matter how nice he behaves. It is good that i got my money refunded but i still deduct one star due to the high volume of fraud sellers on ali express.
Trustable website to buy stuff
Aliexpress.com is very good website.the only thing to remember is to check seller reviews before buying any item. If you do that, you will never have any trouble with Aliexpress.
Unable to Make Payment Error CSC_7200026
I created a new account and tried to buy a few things but when i get to the payment screen my card gets rejected. It shows Error CSC_7200026 every thing, I even tried with a different card but still no luck. I dont know that is the issue, i tried their support but no luck. Their support person told me to create a new account, why should I create another account when this one is also genuine?
Transaction Error when Coupon Used
Very poor behavior by Aliexpress. This is the second time it is happening to me. I got an email from aliexpress offering me a coupon to use above $3 transactions. I used it to buy a 30W wireless charger from HONGFA Digital Store which costs $3.43 so now I only had to pay $0.43 to get it so I clicked the buy button and bammm I got this error
Transaction failed: We can’t process this payment right now. Error Code: CSC_7200029
I tried several times and even tried on desktop after a few hours but same error persisted.
I know my card works because i recently paid for a domain renewal on dynadot but i still confirmed by calling my bank about my card status. They said its enabled for international transaction and there is nothing wrong on their end. Then i searched on aliexpress and found that this error is due to their internal system fault.
Now why is this fault only seen when i use the coupons. Last time a $10 coupon was also lost the very similar way. I dont know why they offer coupons if they cannot keep up with them. I am a gold member and have bought many other items without any coupon use, but it is frustrating when they offer me a coupon and I waste my time on it but get nothing in the end.
Come on aliexpress, you should be better than that!
Cannot Buy With Coins
I have tried my best to buy any thing with my coins from Aliexpress but i cannot. 99% of times, all the items available in coins sale just become sold instantly as soon as the sale starts. How is it possible unless they are bogus or there are some bots that order them instantly! Well even if you get to reach the order page for some garbage type item, it will surprisingly remove your country from the delivery options. Now if that is not suspicious enough, now note that item and try to reach its order page using actual money, Tada! your county will appear again in the shipment!
Now I will leave it up to you to classify if it is a scam or fraud or gimmick or whatever word you assign to it.
Oh and coins simply dont work or even appear in the desktop website of Aliexpress.
There are many Scams on Aliexpress
Aliexpress has a load of scams so watch out and do a full research before buying from a seller. Check the seller reviews on and rating on aliexpress and also on the internet reviews websites such as notscam or trustpilot. Although Aliepxress helps you in getting your money back but each refund also cause bad repute to your account. After a few refunds, aliexpress can reject your refund thinking you are the one to blame. This is exactly what happened to me, I am a gold buyer but still my valid refund was declined so watch out.
Just Became a Platinum Member
Aliexpress is a good website, I have purchased 90+ orders on Ali express so far and never had to file a dispute yet. I have become a platinum member now. However i didnt see any membership level based monetary benefits so far. Prices are still same for me but I think the sellers are a bit more respectful to me. To me, this member ranking system seems to be a status symbol on aliexpress and sellers and aliexpress support staff treat you according to your membership level. It may be my assumption only but I have felt it this way! so it is definitely good to have a higher membership level, I am sure I will get a quick refund if I ever get into trouble now.
