AliExpress is one of the biggest B2C (Business-To-Customer) store, AliExpress is a marketplace where buyers and sellers meet. On AliExpress you can find millions of products offered by thousands of sellers.

But, When we think about International Shopping, few questions come to our mind, such as “How to place an order on AliExpress?”, “How to make payment on AliExpress?”, “Is it safe to buy from AliExpress?” Etc…

Steps To Import Products from AliExpress:-

1. Check Store’s / Seller’s Ratings:-

AliExpress is always ready to help you via ‘Buyer Protection Program‘ but if you want good customer service from seller side then always check the sellers’ ratings before placing an order.

Note:- If you want to buy cheap(under $5 dollar) product then you don’t need to follow these tips.

2. Check Buyers’ Reviews:-

Buyer’s Reviews is also important but it’s not important like sellers’ rating because sellers’ rating shows the customer service of the seller, which he earns from good quality products and from good customer service while buyers’ review just shows the quality of the product, If any product does not have positive feedback then it doesn’t mean the seller is bad.

You should skip product with negative feedback but If a store has the good amount of positive feedback then you can purchase another product from that store.

3. Check Shipping Method:-

Shipping method is also most important thing after sellers’ rating because some shipping method does not come with international tracking facility, If you will select wrong shipping method then you won’t able to track it in India / Outside China.

4. Enter Address And Make Payment:-

After Following all the above steps, You need to click ‘Buy Now’ or ‘Add to Cart’ Then Enter Address. Now, You can make payment using your preferred payment method on the checkout page. And, Don’t worry about the security of payment because your details are protected by VeriSign SSL encryption.

Note:- Your money will only be transferred to the seller once you have confirmed receiving your order, or when your Buyer Protection has ended.

I usually use my International debit card to make payment, You can check the image below for more detail:-

  1. If otp is not required then anyone can use my card ??

    1. OTP isn’t required but other card details like number, expiry date, and CVV are required. So, Others cannot use your card unless he/she has all the details of your card.

  2. While i enter my card detail it shows that my card has expired bt jst afternoon i buyed my stuff and i payed my cash through this card????

    1. I think you should contact your bank to know why you are getting this error.
