AliExpress delivery slow ??

Recommended Posts

Made an order with AliExpress ( Lazada had the item but was expensive )

I ordered it 2 weeks ago and the seller has shipped but it’s still at the airport ( China ), delivery was quoted as today until Aug 8th.

 

The item I ordered weighs 160g only.

 

I’ve ordered several items from China ( via Lazada ) and they have taken no more than 6 days each time.

 

I’m not desperate for the item and was aware of the possible long lead time but wondered if this is typical of AliExpress ??

 

TIA

 

Andy

It is completely normal.  Lazada from China is faster.  Two weeks would be rare from Aliexpress.  Average is about a month, I guess.

Yep pretty slow but it turns up in the end.

Had a delivery today from Aliexpress.

Ordered beginning of this month.

For me most of the time it takes about 10 to 14 days and sometimes a little longer.

The cheap tracking is unreliable. Just today I received two small bags which didn't show in the tracking at all in the last weeks. Today, after I had it in my hand the tracking showed some info from an airport.

 

Some tracking works fine. But often you have to pay extra for that.

All depends on the shipping method seller has chosen . If it’s registered air mail 10-14 days if others in 99% of the time you do not receive it but wait for 2-3 months to get your money back.

 

i am some super duper titanium buyer , so lots of orders and this is what happens . Also waiting for 2 items 2 months already, opened disputes and told to wait for 10 more days and then 10 more days and then 10 more.

I’ll continue to use them and try not to be impatient

Depends on the shipping method

"China post ordinary small packet plus" takes about 2 weeks.

For example "Yanwen economic air mail" maybe 3-6 weeks.

Currently i'm waiting on a package sent using "4PX Singapore post om pro", ordered 4 weeks ago, didn't arrive yet.

 

So far, out of about 50 orders, 2 orders did not arrive. After 60 days are over and you open a dispute for it you get the money back.

I’ve ordered quite a few things from AliExpress and they’ve all turned up in around 8-10 days as far as I can remember. Lazada are terrible in my experience: they can take 6 days to get stuff from Bangkok to Chiang Mai.

Okay thanks, I didn’t realise that things could take so long !!
I saw the count down clock and the dispute button.

You seem to have a different experience than most, although there were quite a few people claiming Lazada has gone downhill on another thread.

My experience is Lazada (local) a few days, I ordered an item last Friday and it arrived Monday, Lazada (China) no more than 6 days.
But I am an hour drive north of BKK so location is a factor it seems.

But, on the other hand you are getting stuff from AliExpress in 8 - 10 days which is okay and I would be perfectly happy with that.

Not sure I can plan 6 weeks in advance for my stuff !!

Most sellers offer a variety of shipping options. If you don't want to wait 3-6 weeks then just choose to pay something extra. The "China post ordinary small packet plus" usually costs just a little bit extra (something like 40-60 THB for small items) and you will usually receive it within 2 weeks

Yes, I must admit I went back into my order and looked in more detail .
There’s 4 free shipping options plus another 11 paid options at various cost.

That’s a lot of options !!
I didn’t realise that and was going by the Lazada way where often shipping has limited, if any , options.

Thanks for the tip.

I also wonder why Lazada is always faster than Aliexpress even when items come from China ?
