There were problems with delivery to many countries after the Russian attack on Ukraine

The Russian Federation invaded the territory of Ukraine on 24.02.2022 starting an aggressive war. This led to numerous casualties among the civilian population and the destruction of infrastructure. Vast areas of air and sea space were closed due to hostilities. Therefore, now the actual delivery to Ukraine is impossible. Delivery is difficult to some countries. Here is a complete list of countries where goods take longer than usual:

Belarus, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan.

Here is a complete list of logistics operators (delivery services) working with AliExpress. The operator is the company that is responsible for the package. He may hire other companies to transport or store parcels.

AliExpress Coupon Center

Active coupons for old users. Fixed discount on all products

Economy class methods

These are the slowest but also the cheapest shipping methods. Almost always offered free of charge. That is, the seller pays for delivery, not the buyer. Disadvantage – the parcel travels slowly. Usually they wait in the warehouse until a lot of economy-class parcels are collected, and then they are sent together.

Seller’s Shipping Method

In this case, the seller himself chooses the delivery method and logistics service. That is, you completely trust the seller. The most unreliable delivery method.

We do not recommend choosing this shipping method

We advise you to always choose another method, if possible. The only time you can trust the seller is if you are ordering a special item. For example, if you buy tea. Read reviews carefully, and check the seller’s rating.

How does shipping work on AliExpress

Products on AliExpress are sold by independent sellers and stores. The site is a marketplace, not an online store. AliExpress takes care of customer protection, dispute resolution and delivery arrangements. Finds the best carriers, warehouses and couriers. Offers many options. The seller can choose several delivery options and offer you. When buying, you yourself choose by what method to deliver the goods to you.

  1. The seller places his goods in the AliExpress catalog
  2. He can keep goods in his own warehouse. Or give them to the AliExpress warehouse.
  3. It is the seller who chooses which delivery services to work with.
  4. In the product card, he enters all the delivery services with which he works.
  5. Before buying, you yourself choose which service he should send you the goods.
  6. When you click on the “buy” button and pay for the order, the seller is notified.
  7. Then he either himself carries the goods to the delivery service and sends it to you. Or gives an order to the AliExpress warehouse.
  8. The delivery service delivers the order to you.
  9. You acknowledge receipt of the parcel.
  10. Only then does AliExpress transfer your money to the seller.
How Cainiao Logistics Delivers

What is AliExpress delivery

There are 3 main types of AliExpress delivery:

  1. Seller’s delivery. The seller himself chooses the logistics company and sends the package.
  2. Dropshipping Cainiao. After you have bought the product, the seller takes it to the AliExpress warehouse. Then the Cainiao specialists organize the delivery.
  3. Fulfillment Cainiao. The seller takes the goods to the AliExpress warehouse even before you bought it. After the sale, the delivery is fully handled by Cainiao specialists.

Why is an expensive package sometimes slow

The administration of the AliExpress trading platform guarantees that you will receive a quality product, safe and sound. If something happens to the parcel on the way, you are entitled to compensation for damage. In most cases, the money will be returned to you.

Therefore, for the AliExpress delivery service, the safety of the parcel is more important than speed.

Therefore, they give preference to those services that take care of the parcels and insure them. So that the carrier, and not AliExpress, pays for possible damage.

AliExpress own delivery service – Cainiao

For consumers and manufacturers, this means that a regular 1 kg package can be shipped anywhere in China within 24 hours for about 30 cents. Cainiao’s goal is to deliver anywhere in the world within 72 hours for $3. (Currently, a DHL envelope weighing less than 0.5 kg from Shanghai to London costs about $100 and usually takes 5 days.)

The Alibaba Group includes the logistics company Cainiao (Chinese 菜鸟 网络 科技 有限公司 Cainiao). The full name is Cainiao Smart Logistics Network Limited. Founded on May 28, 2013. It is this company that is engaged in delivery with AliExpress.

Inside Cainiao’s Smart Warehouse

Cainiao is far from your typical logistics firm, but it is an open platform that enables 3,000 logistics partners and 3 million couriers, including 15 leading shipping companies within China and 100 international ones. This allows retailers to select the most cost-effective and time-efficient delivery option based on real-time data processing of optimal firms and routes.

Как работает доставка Алиэкспресс


But it does not transport itself. Cainiao operates warehouses, logistics centers and information platform. And other companies are engaged in the transportation of goods for it. The same China Post or Russian Post, for example.

Thousands of small sellers take their goods to warehouses. The task of Cainiao is to sort them out and select what is sold. Then arrange delivery to Moscow or another large hub. Provide tracking of the parcel at all stages.

On the Cainiao website, you can track all parcels sent from AliExpress. There are three methods – Saver, Standard and Premium. You choose one of them, and already the specialists of China select the delivery service of the corresponding category.

“We had to get all the CEOs of the various room delivery companies together to figure out how to do it,” says Cainiao CEO Wang Lin, seated at the company’s Hangzhou headquarters, which is adorned with exercise equipment and pink oatmeal in honor of recent event. An extravaganza of shopping on Singles’ Day. “Because the biggest obstacle to globalization is logistics.” Writes Time.

Free shipping AliExpress

AliExpress sends millions of packages all over the world. The company’s specialists managed to find the best solutions. They have kept shipping costs to a minimum. To sell more products from Chinese manufacturers. Therefore, the site offers free shipping.

Бесплатная доставка с Алиэкспресс

As you can imagine, nothing is free in reality. Sellers include their shipping costs in the price of the item. They pay for you. Therefore, always compare the price of an item with free shipping and paid shipping. It may be worth choosing a different option and paying the shipping costs yourself.

If the price does not differ, feel free to use the opportunity to order with free shipping. The worst thing that can happen is the long waiting period. It is more convenient for sellers to include shipping costs in the price. And so it is more convenient for you to calculate the cost of the order.

We advise you to always choose free shipping

If you do not receive the item, you will be able to return it in full. If you have chosen paid delivery, and the goods have not arrived, then only the cost of the goods will be returned to you. Shipping costs will not be reimbursed to you.

Free delivery of small items

It is clear that when the amount of your order is less than $1, there can be no question of including any transportation costs. Why then do the sellers offer you to bring the goods for free? There are two options:

  1. The seller has already delivered a large quantity of goods to your country. And he sells them from his own warehouse. For example, he sent a wagon of phone cases to Moscow.
  2. The seller wants to quickly raise his rating. He really works at a loss. But he does this so that you give him a positive assessment. This is the cheapest way to make AliExpress popular.

Promotions

Sometimes you can save on transportation costs if you fall under the promotion. Sellers do not have to reduce the price of the product, but pay for the delivery. You still save, and they increase sales.

The fastest shipping AliExpress

This is the most difficult question. The fact is that Aliexpress sellers are located in different parts of China. From Guangzhou to Beijing 2138 kilometers and this is not the most distance. Only within the territory of the PRC, your parcel can travel for several days.

Самая быстрая доставка с Алиэкспресс

Therefore, the surest way is to look at the predicted terms in the description of AliExpress delivery methods in the product card.

If in doubt, choose a delivery from the “big four” (DHL, UPS, FedEx and TNT). It is always expensive, but they indicate real terms.

The best results are shown by the Big Four and AliExpress Premium Shipping.

Avoid intermediaries, companies offering “pick up goods from China”. Their services cost money, but this does not add speed. On the contrary, an additional link appears in the supply chain.

Какую доставку с Алиэкспресс лучше выбрать

Which delivery is better to choose on AliExpress

Depends on what exactly you want.

If you need to save

Get free shipping. Almost every product has this option. Ordering a jacket and the seller only offers paid options? Look for another seller. You will almost certainly be able to find someone who will sell you a similar product. And deliver it for free.

If you want to get your order quickly

Choose the delivery with fewer days indicated on the product card. Preference – the four largest operators or AliExpress Premium Shipping. According to customer reviews, the fastest delivery is FedEx.

If you are concerned that the goods may be damaged in transit

Then you only have two options:

  1. AliExpress Premium Shipping.
  2. DHL or FedEx.

Be sure to get a tracking number and track the movement of the parcel. And do not forget to film how you unpack the received item. If something goes wrong with him, file a complaint, open a dispute with AliExpress.

How to write the correct address for AliExpress

Remember that the main language of the online store is English. That is, all disputes are resolved only in this language. Accordingly, you need to write the address on AliExpress in accordance with all the rules of English grammar, spelling and punctuation. Three basic rules:

  1. The name of the country and city must be translated
  2. The street should not be translated, but transliterated
  3. If you do not live in a city, but in a village, the name also needs to be transliterated, not translated.

Transliteration is the most accurate transfer of the characters of one language in the characters of another. Take the time to go to the post office or the nearest delivery point. And ask there how to fill in the address data correctly to receive international registrations.

Submitting an order

After you have finished ordering and paid for it, the seller is notified. There are two possible scenarios for the development of events:

  1. If the seller stores goods in AliExpress warehouses, they are immediately sent to the delivery service. To the one you have chosen
  2. In the event that the seller himself is engaged in logistics, he may delay the shipment for some time.
Отправление заказа с Алиэкспресс

In any situation, you can track the shipment through My AliExpress interface. Once you have a tracking number, you can follow it through any selected service.

The seller is under the control of the AliExpress administration. Therefore, he is interested in sending your order as soon as possible. Delays usually only happen during the holidays.

There are many holidays and non-working days in the PRC. Seven are considered major and are celebrated in all provinces. The five holidays last for three days each. Two more – a whole week. During this time, some sellers and almost all delivery services may not work.

Tracking

You can track your parcel on our website.

There are many services that help track parcels online. Here are the most popular ones:

  • Cainiao. The official logistics service of AliExpress. You can enter up to 30 tracking numbers at once. Almost all other services take information from it. Website – global.cainiao.com
  • Postal Ninja. Multilingual service, there is an interface in Russian and Ukrainian. You can create an account and remember your tracking codes. Website – postal. Ninja
  • Track 24. Another Russian-language tracking service. There are some interesting informational articles. Website – track24.ru

Package from AliExpress

A regular package is no different from shipments from other online stores. As a rule – well-packed. After all, a parcel with AliExpress sometimes has to travel several thousand kilometers.

Посылка с Алиэкспресс

Sellers sometimes put a small gift in addition to the ordered product. It could be a nice little thing or a sample of another product.

Use the utmost care when unpacking. It is advisable to record this process on video. So that later you can open a dispute and return the money if the goods arrive damaged. Or if a dishonest seller is caught. In most cases, the administration of AliExpress takes the side of the buyer in disputes. If you back up your statement with photos and videos, success is almost guaranteed.

Customs clearance

Depends on the country you are ordering from. Most parcels from AliExpress go through customs without any problems. You just receive your order. If you need to pay customs duties and taxes, then the courier service will inform you about this. This rarely happens. You will be sent a declaration to fill out. And they will tell you how to pay taxes and fees.

Cainiao specialists are actively working with customs of all countries of the world in order for you to receive orders faster. They take over the processing of customs declarations. They are trying to automate this process. In order not to fill in the forms manually. In some countries, information about the parcel is sent to customs even before the parcel itself leaves China.

After July 1, 2021, the customs clearance rules in the European Union have changed. Now all parcels are subject to VAT . But don’t worry – Aliexpress takes care of the registration procedure and taxes. VAT will be included in the invoice before payment. Some products are already in European warehouses. Therefore, all taxes and fees have already been paid.

China Post

National State Postal Service of the People’s Republic of China. Provides shipment of goods both within the country and around the world. More than 80,000 branches and 200 sorting centers. China Post employs over 1,000,000 employees.

The main centers of China Post are located in major cities and shopping centers in China: Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai and others.
