AliExpress offers one of the largest inventories of cheap, overseas products that you won't be able to find elsewhere. Unlike Alibaba (the parent company), AliExpress allows you to buy single items so that you don't have to purchase in bulk. Shipping is available direct from manufacturers to more than 200 countries worldwide. We recommend looking at seller reviews before making purchases to make sure that the seller is reliable and trustworthy.
AliExpress's Buyer Guarantee will give you peace of mind because they will fully refund orders that are not received or not as described. Other great features of AliExpress are that most sellers offer free shipping, the site has a 60 day guarantee and there is robust tracking on every order.
The site would be better if all sellers offered free shipping but you are able to filter your searches so that you only view options with free shipping. There are some scams to beware of but these tend to only happen with sellers who don't have many reviews. Make sure to only buy from reputable sellers to avoid any issues.
