AliExpress is one of the most significant trading platforms in the world. Today, it represents a part of the largest Chinese Corporation Alibaba.com. AliExpress works as an intermediary between the buyer and the seller.
The first version of the trading platform appeared in 2009, and in 2014, AliExpress became one of the biggest and recognizable websites in the world of online sales. The range of products is abundant. It is possible to purchase everything from chargers, smartphones, tablets, clothes, shoes, household goods, top-quality copies of branded items to food supplies and medicines with the use of this trading resource. Prices for products are mainly low, while the free shipping option is available for the majority of the world countries. The advantage of this online trade platform is that AliExpress provides English and Russian versions of its main website. It significantly increases the number of buyers from the CIS countries and Western Europe.
In its operation, AliExpress uses the escrow system, which means that the seller will receive money for the goods only after the buyer’s confirmation. Before that, the money for the purchase is stored in the e-wallet of the system.
