Shipping and payment
More than 40 payment methods are available on AliExpress. But we recommend using the simplest option – a credit card. Please be aware that PayPal is not available in Sri Lanka.

Your package is in good hands. AliExpress has its own logistics company that deals with deliveries – Cainiao. And throughout the country, the delivery is handled by the Sri Lanka Post. Or other local courier services – Domex, Certis Lanka, Parcel LK.
The main thing is that you correctly indicate your mobile phone number. When the package is in place, you will receive a message on it. If suddenly, for some reason, the order does not arrive, you will be refunded.
Payment for an order on AliExpress in Sri Lanka rupees
You can choose to display prices on the site in Sri Lankan rupees. The currency is selected in the same menu as the languages and the country of delivery.
But remember that this is not an exact price, but only an approximate one. After all, the main currency for settlements on AliExpress is the US dollar. When you pay in rupees, they are converted to dollars at your bank’s exchange rate. Therefore, the amount may differ slightly.
You can pay in Sri Lankan rupees for all orders for AliExpress, paid shipping and other services. You do not need to exchange currency in order to make a purchase.
AliExpress cash on delivery to Sri Lanka
You can buy on AliExpress only on a prepaid basis. Payment after delivery is not possible. The only country that allows this method is Saudi Arabia.
But you don’t have to worry. If you do not receive your order, you will be refunded the money, the entire payment amount. And if the quality of the goods turns out to be worse than in the photo and in the description, then you can return part of the amount. This is called AliExpress Buyer Protection.
