There are two types of delivery on Aliexpress: urgent and free. With free delivery, the goods come from China, and you have to wait an average of 20-35 days depending on the city. Pick up at the Russian Post. Ali gives the money to the seller after the buyer receives the package.
Basically, I order small things and therefore use free shipping. It happens that there are no free delivery options, then I go to look for a similar product, where it will be. I live in Moscow and on average I wait for a parcel no longer than three weeks. Most often, I order delivery “Aliexpress-standard”. Sometimes it is not there, so in six months I used four more delivery methods.
The table shows that the order dated November 15 came to me only in January. So far, this is my anti-record for delivery from Aliexpress. I could calmly return the money for that order, but I started and didn’t.
The type of delivery is selected when placing an order. There you can also see the maximum delivery time and the buyer’s protection period – if it expires, and you have not received the parcel, then you can file a complaint and the money will be returned.
