I don’t either yet I do business with Chinese people and the main language on AliExpress is English, but you can switch to Portuguese, Spanish, French or Russian. You can also use Google translator to automatically translate to another language. Bear in mind that Google translator is a machine and unfortunately sometimes translation just does not make sense.
SHIPPING IS VERY EXPENSIVE
Most of the products sold on AliExpress are shipped without delivery fee. Just choose the products with Free Shipping. Products with Free Shipping can be selected at the start of your product search on AliExpress. Surcharges are only for courier delivery. Notice – sometimes you have to do minimum order of $5 or $10 to get Free Shipping. But this minimum purchase order mostly applies to jewelleries and phone accessories. So just pay attention and read whole product description where you can find all the information.
CLOTHING SIZES ARE NOT ACCURATE
China’s sizes are really different from the European or American one, and it is good to keep in mind. It`s important to look at each product table size with rates for a given size. Products on AliExpress are usually sewed with hand and therefore each vendor offers its own table size. Also most sellers do offers America and Europe cloth or shoe sizes on their page.
