Then the process to get a full refund is really secured too, the buyer just has to follow few easy steps:
AliExpress proposes two services:
When a product is bought, it is the seller that gives an estimated period for the delivery time. The averages are from 15 to 45 days for AliExpress standard shipping and 7 to 15 days for the premium option, but the actual time it takes depends on several other factors such as:
When the package is sent by private courier (like FedEx, DHL…), it will arrive soon after the order is made but the buyer will have to pay customs fees.
With the other shipping methods, the time varies according to the shipping company. AliExpress has partnerships with local couriers in different countries and the shipment will be faster is the delivery is made by one of those partners. In addition, if the buyer opted for registered mail instead of regular mail, the time of the delivery will be faster.
The orders will arrive faster in countries where the state postal service is good and where people already order a lot from abroad. The buyer must also take in account the weather forecast of the country/region because the delivery can take longer according to meteorological events.
If the buyer orders during periods of the year such as Christmas, the 11.11 or at the end of January during the Chinese New Year, the AliExpress delivery may last more than usual. When a too many orders are accumulated in a country it is more difficult for the local post service to deliver everything in time. However, even if the delivery time last, the buyer can check his AliExpress order tracking online.
AliExpress tracking is an easy process that Ship24 offers to the buyer. Once the purchase is done, the buyer has the possibility to track any order being shipped via AliExpress. The buyer just needs to enter the tracking number in the search bar on the ship24 website to check his order’s logistical status.
The buyer can also find these information on the AliExpress website and doesn’t have to confuse the order number and the tracking number that is the only information helpful for the AliExpress tracking.

The tracking ID is supposed to be always a different one, i.e. the numbers are always different such as TY72726064444700008. However, some Tracking numbers are invalid or the seller provided the same tracking number for several orders. If there are any issues, it is better to contact AliExpress customer support.
When it comes to tracking the package/parcel, there is a tracking ID that is used instead of the order number. Although you can connect to the order section on AliExpress, Ship24.com is the ultimate tracking platform, also providing updates on your package/parcel along its way with updated notification about your order.
Once you have your tracking number, it is possible to paste it in the search bar above. The tracking number will automatically be saved in the history tracking number of parcels sent from China are likely similar to CNAPY83xx1295 LZ87124xx90CN.
Sometimes the packet is sent without tracking information, this is the case mostly when the tracking number starts by UN***. The information may be in this case limited to the country of departure. As the package can be handle by different couriers, the tracking number can change on its way How long does AliExpress take to deliver from china (e.g. Countries/Regions).
