Has anyone tried Aliexpress yet?
« on: June 08, 2014, 06:11:14 pm »
Hi everyone! I'm eyeing this watch na imitation of a popular brand on Aliexpress. It's cheap lang, mga 500 pesos siguro at most. it says free shipping to Philippines daw via China Mail. Ok naman ako doon, and the reviews are good, but my problem is mukhang wala namang bumibili from the Philippines diyan. Usually US, Spain, Brazil, or UK.

Ang tanong ko is if may naka try na bumili ng kahit na ano sa Aliexpress, especially watchs/jewelry na cheap rin lang? My concern kasi is baka maharang sa Customs or baka yung babayaran ko mas malaki pa sa costs. Getting feedback lang sana before I try.

It may be "free" shipping to the Philippines but I'm sure there's still taxes pagpasok dito nung product.

have you tried? how much was the value of your purchase and how big was the tax?

Not yet done pero meron akong mga gusto na ipapatingin ko sa isang taong nakatira sa China. What I normally look for is yung complete and Company Profile like address and phone numbers. Tapos papacontact ko sa kakilala dun.

And yes, unless sinabing door to door all expenses included, be prepared to shell out money for duties and taxes. Possible din na pick up niyo pa sa customs o sa post office yan.

I learned the hard way (pero ibang site naman di ko napansin yung note) kasi mas mahal pa yung binayaran kong duties and taxes kesa binili ko. Bwisit na customs!!

That's good to hear, sis. Kamukha naman nung mga nasa picture? Also, China Post ba ginamit mo? Yun kasi yung free eh. Gano katagal inabot?

Yep kamukha naman. China Post nga para free hehe, yung iba mabilis lang wala pang 2 weeks pero meron na months ang inabot. Meron isa kasi kung saan saan sa Pilipinas nakarating so depende talaga sa post office dito.

Safe ba gumamit ng Visa credit card dito? Di ko kasi alam yun Ecrow and wala akong Paypal. I want to buy around 5 dresses. mahal ng patong kasi ng ibang online sellers, or out of stock sa suppliers nila.

My first order with aliexpress did not arrive yet  my credit card was charged.

My suggestion is to stay away from aliexpress and use ebay instead. Im a frequent online shopper.  Ive used ebay countless times where the items and/or sellers are  also from china.. ebay is more reliable.

^--- when did you purchase? what was the shipment method used?

I have ordered from different Aliexpress sellers 3 times already.  Bags, accessories and clothes.

If you avail the free shipment, delivery is between 20 to 30days since this is thru EMS.  Delivery is thru post office.  Very minimal customs fee.  I think I paid 50pesos as duties and taxes in our local post office.

If shipped thru couriers like DHL, UPS or FEDEX, delivery is between 7 to 15days.  Customs fee is 500+.

Also, if after 30days you weren't able to receive the goods even after you confirmed with the seller that they shipped them.  You can go back to your transaction in Aliexpress and file a complaint.  They will revert your transaction, giving back your payment on your CC.

Let say, after you already got your payment and yet you receive the items after 45days; but the seller said 30days; you are not obliged to pay the item.

Aliexpress is legit. Ordered a lot of times here. Matagal lang talaga siya ma-deliver kasi gawa ng customs natin.

Hi, I'm just new to AliExpress and I made sure that the shop is legit and that there is a lot of customer feedback on the seller. I've also availed the FREE SHIPPING via china post, my question is, where will I be able to get my package and how will I know if it arrived already? I haven't tried buying anything from the other countries yet and this is my first time, so i really have no idea. Can you please enlighten me? Thank you!

^---China express is between 15 days to 30 days.  The delivery is thru your friendly postman.  The seller will give you a tracking number that you can monitor the progress thru China EMS website.  Just google it.

Mabilis mag-ship ang mga seller sa AliExpress, it's the method of shipment that varies.

So malapit na to diba? San siya icclaim mga sis and paano malalaman if pwede na iclaim? No experience with postman yet.

^naku mukhang matagal pa yan, sa akin since january 26 pa nasa philippines na pero till now wala padin sakin yung package ko. your local post office will send you a notice na pwede mo na iclaim package mo, then you will pay php100 for the tax if na-declare na less than 10USD yung package. if not, certain tax/fee will be applied pag more than 10usd. :)

updated ba to? Php 700 ang tax sa $20. no way :-[

I tried one time and I got my order just recently.  Contacted the seller first to let her know that I needed it second week of March.  Fast transaction and the seller is way too nice to cater some of my requests :)
