AliExpress.com is a unique global marketplace that connects buyers and sellers all around the world. The primary draw to their online shopping experience is their wholesale pricing; their sellers are based in China, where name-brand consumer products are available at lower prices than in Canada. This allows Canadian shoppers to pay low prices for the same clothing, jewelry, electronics, and other goods available in stores.
AliExpress.com also provides coupons for their shoppers. Make sure to check back often to see their latest and greatest coupon offers.
All transactions on the site are conducted by individual sellers, but AliExpress.com guarantees all transactions with escrow protection, payment encryption by VeriSign to protect personal and financial information, and a refund guarantee on all products after purchase. They also offer an additional layer of protection with their robust feedback system, which allows shoppers to view how many transactions a seller has successfully conducted and view feedback from other buyers. These safety systems allow buyers to avoid counterfeit goods, scams, and other pitfalls of transactions conducted directly with buyers.
The site guarantees that all products ship within three days of placing an order, and many sellers offer free or low-priced shipping options to Canada. Because all items are quickly processed, buyers only have the actual shipping time to wait; there are no long processing delays.
As long as buyers are careful, check the feedback of all sellers carefully, and are willing to use the provided tools for safety and dispute resolution, this online shopping experience offers unbeatable prices, a wide variety of products, and a great deal of convenience.
