Disclaimer: This is how I shop on Aliexpress, different strokes for different folks, it is not the HOW TO, but HOW I.
Hey bunnies and hunnies? Missed me? Haha don’t deny I know you did, chop kiss :*
Today’s post is up all thanks to Ene of ladybugbyene (congratulations on the domain girl!) for the inspiration, she emailed me some days back and asked how I shopped on Aliexpress with reference to the rings I wore in this post. For generalization sake, these tips can also be used when purchasing anything on Aliexpress.
How I shop on Aliexpress:
- Free shipping – because I tend to buy things like rings on Aliexpress, I’d rather opt for the free shipping option if the seller has, if not, on to the next one, there are so many sellers selling the same thing I just have to find the one with free shipping (we all have alaroro-ness in our blood abeg).
- Read reviews – because I’d like to know how long delivery took, if the item was true to what the seller advertised and other things. No doubt there will be bad reviews but you need to ratio that out before taking the plunge.
- Low cost – I always ensure whatever I buy on Aliexpress isn’t up to $10 because ain’t no one wanna spend so much money and the item gets lost in transit, abeg, I no do.
- Speak to the seller – if need be, I sometimes message the sellers just to inquire, it is good so they clear any doubts you have about their products.
It took 15 – 18 days to get the rings I purchased from NIPOST office at Zone 3, they were in great condition and well packaged. Delivery was long but that was okay since I didn’t have to pay for shipping.
About the rings I purchased, when worn for too long, they leave a greenish scar (I think my skin reacts to the materials mixed in making the rings) on my fingers but they disappear later in the day (downside of buying cheap stuff).
Shopping on Aliexpress is great because you find everything you need there and you can open a dispute/get a refund if what you ordered isn’t anything near what you wanted plus you can track your items too but as with everything/anything online, you have to thread carefully, always read reviews!
I hope I was able to help someone or anyone at all, also, I have product reviews coming up, brace yourselves!
