Fast. Profitable. Convenient. AliExpress discounts!

Learn about fresh promo codes, the best purchases, and hot brands faster than others. Save time and money!

You can choose a specific payment method only after you register on AliExpress, indicate your delivery address and make a purchase. Only after that, the site will offer you a choice of payment method.

The payment system must work in the country from which you make the payment and in the country where the goods are delivered.

For example. You are located in the US and pay with PayPal. But you want the seller to ship the goods to Russia. AliExpress will not allow you to make such a payment. But if you pay from the USA, and the goods are sent to Israel, then the payment will pass. Because PayPal also works in Israel.

Aliexpress and Tmall, both divisions of Alibaba Group, use their own payment system Alipay. Therefore, payments are made quickly and safely. When money is debited from your account, it does not go directly to the seller. Aliexpress retains them until you confirm the successful receipt of the goods and compliance with its description. If you have a complaint or don’t receive your order at all, you can open a dispute and get your money back. Fully or partially.
