Why You Should Avoid Shopping On Aliexpress
Aliexpress is a Chinese online marketplace that allows its users to buy and sell products from other users. Many people use Aliexpress to purchase products from third-party sellers because of the low prices and wide selection of products. However, there are several reasons why you should not buy products from Aliexpress.
First, Aliexpress is not registered with the US government as a legitimate ecommerce website. This means that Aliexpress may not be able to provide you with the same customer protection and warranty rights that you would receive if you bought products from a US-based website. Additionally, Aliexpress does not have any customer service or refund policies in place, which could lead to difficulties if something goes wrong with your purchase. Finally, Aliexpress does not require its users to provide proof of identity or shipping addresses before they make a purchase, which could lead to theft or fraud if your information is stolen.
What Are the Risk Of Buying From Aliexpress
There are a lot of reasons why you should avoid shopping on Aliexpress. Here are just a few:
- Aliexpress is not regulated. This means that there is no guarantee of quality or safety when buying products from Aliexpress. You may end up with a fake product or one that is not as described.
- Aliexpress does not have a good return policy. If you are unhappy with a product you purchased, you may be unable to get a refund or exchange it for another product.
- Aliexpress charges high shipping fees. This can greatly increase the cost of your purchase.
- Aliexpress does not offer any warranty or support for its products. if something goes wrong with your purchase, you will be on your own to find a solution.
Dispute Sytem is FAKE ( No Refunds )
Another reason why you should avoid shopping on Aliexpress is just like the products that they sell Aliexpress’s dispute system is just for show and doesn’t actually protect their customers at all. Aliexpress is run by the CCP government as such there is no consumer protection. They will often ask for proof of non-shipment or damaged goods, but when I showed them their own tracker that indicated the item never left China they still sided with the seller and stole my money.
Description Shows False Information ( Inflated Values )
Often times, products sold on Aliexpress show inflated numbers in order to con customers into thinking they got a great deal at a very cheap price.
One common scam is when a product is advertised as having a certain number of features, but when the customer receives the product, it has far fewer features than what was advertised. This can be extremely frustrating and disappointing for customers, who feel like they were duped into buying a sub-par product. In order to avoid being scammed on Aliexpress, it’s important to do your research on a product before purchasing it, and to read reviews from other customers to get an idea of what you can expect. This is yet another reason to avoid shopping on Aliexpress.
- A 2GB hard drive will often be labled as 500 GB
- A 1000 grit Stone will often be labled as a 10,000 grit Stone
- A battery with a 5000mah will often be labled as 100,000mah battery
Cheap Prices To Lure Customers ( Non Shipments )
The prices shown on Aliexpress are often many times cheaper when compared to other online stores, but there is a catch! When I ordered from Aliexpress many of my “cheap” items never came and yet Aliexpress still stole my money and I got nothing for it. This is a very common con that Aliexpress uses to steal money from their customers. They simply never ship out the item and then take your money.
Everything that I have stated here is not here say it is my personal experience dealing with this scamming company. Like many other people I was lured in by the cheap prices, fake customer protection, and glowing reviews which I later learned that many of these glowing reviews about Aliexpress comes from affiliates that make a commission from your purchases. All in all, I ordered 4 items and only one of them came. I lost around $45 dollars and I even got trolled by Aliexpress saying that they would refund me ZERO dollars.
