Your small claim have no sense, of understanding AliExpress rule policy. That’s why company websites overseas don’t accept no USA customer but I myself only. Sure it says comes with tracking numbers after shipping. But most importantly it’s all about receiving order as described in time frame of shipping. Which I’m sure you received order as described in time. U know u can download their app to receive discounts on all items purchased through the app. Taxes are nine cent on each dollar, my math is done I never over paid on the site. You should learn more about the website. The USA is full of uneducated people with no understanding. Bad people like you create false claims against successful businesses. U guys always trying to create fake problems. THAT IS A PROVEN FACT ABOUT USA RESIDENTS CREATING THEIR OWN BAD CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE. You guys need to leave well alone, stop hating the success of others. Learn to read to gain better knowledge of understanding. Online on one website alone, It’s a fact that I make more money than you in 10 minutes! That why haters can never claim I myself, because I’m smarter, I can’t never sit to speak with the uneducated, with a college degree. I’m higher without a degree, then my education was limited by hater. Now I thought myself how to make cash without others knowing are showing me how . I completed all my work, to the b st of my knowledge. I am receiving outstanding result. Why USA always start mess with companies website operation from overseas, then put the the dumbest article on online. That can be proven without legal any legal service. I proved all my cases without ever visiting your judge of courts. Dummies

Can we have a t-shirt printed with this text, issued by BLF, in a groupsbuy? Wink

Sometimes, for various reasons; tracking numbers just do not work. As an example…. I received a package Saturday that Tracking never updated from the ‘Label Created” stage.
Yet… it was delivered to my door.

Patience is a virtue. Wink

Contacting the seller sometimes helps also.

It still amazes me that to date….. I have always received every package sent me. Thumbs Up

You most likely will too…..

Update:

I had ordered an L6 and four batteries.
On a different day I ordered 2 additional batteries (I also ordered an S70S and that came from a different store).
I did receive the S70S and YESTERDAY I received the TWO BATTERIES, which were from Simon.
I got a message back from Simon today.
It stated that the package “was returned” – no idea what that means.
He sent me a DHL tracking number, which basically shows a label was made but there is no actual package receipt, It also shows a weight of .011 pounds, clearly not a flashlight and 4 batteries.
I now discovered that the original order of the L6 and 4 batteries, and the later order of two batteries (received) are listed on the same order number at Aliexpress!
So that may be where the problem lies. When I inquire about the order, it comes up as the two batteries, but not the original order.

Anyway, I am confused! Since Simon has responded, hopefully it will be straightened out.

What store is this Simon guy running? I’ve never had a single issue with AliExpress. I bought my Xiaomi Mi 9, my wife’s Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, screen protectors, small motors, phone battery, phone cases, so much stuff! I’ve never not received an item.

It’s all about choosing the right sellers.

Don’t be too upset about that guy that has stock in AliExpress. He made me laugh. After all, we are all just stupid fat Americans that need to go to school. Because tracking numbers are only for the educated, ya doofuses!

It seemed like he was trying to say that we are all uneducated, but then he himself never finished getting a college degree. It almost definitely should be posted to this subreddit.

He’s affectionately known as The Simon.

He’s wonderful.

FYI he said he is having problems with customs in HK with batteries, so switched to DHL.
Now I have heard that DHL shipments often incur duties on this side, so we will see.

Ali has “upgraded” their iPhone app so it no longer works with iOS 7 (my old hand-me-up phone given to me when the young folks in the family bought newer ones).
Apple used to offer an older version but doesn’t in this case. My iPhone won’t accept a newer version of iOS (v8 is necessary for the new Ali app).
And the app I have been using won’t work at all, just offers an update that won’t work with my iPhone.

Left behind by progress ….

Of course Ali offers no way ontheir website to ask for them to allow me to continue shopping with them.

I didn’t mean it in a manner of disrespect Teacher. Just pure, innocent ignorance. I don’t own a convoy but the bang for the buck has always been alluring.

Any chance anyone can link me his store?

That doesn’t exactly tell me this sellers story though? I guess I can assume it’s “convoy flashlight store”

Simon’s been around quite a while, and has his own thread on here:

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/64374

I’ve found him to be great at taking feedback and he’s happy to help people out if something isn’t quite right.

I’m cheap so I’ve bought lots of stuff from China on eBay and recently discovered Aliexpress and Bangood, and also other what I call Americanese shops like TomTop that shop from the US and mainland China. Things I look for when buying from the far East. The seller rating and feedback are first and foremost. Second is the shipping method (do they offer more than one? Like SpeedPak, eship, China Post, etc.) and price. I experience more order failures on items with free shipping.

Avoid buying batteries from China unless you have a verified good seller who sells genuine cells. It’s better to spend $1 extra per cell to get the real ones.

Also, keep your expectations low. You get what you pay for most of the time. Don’t expect to get your order in a week or two or sometimes even 3 weeks. Plan on getting it eventually. Like others have mentioned take tracking numbers with a grain of salt. On cheaper items, like under $5, forget it unless you want a fake transaction ID that perpetually tells you your item is in transit or clearing customs.

I ordered a digitizer for a Chinese tablet and it took the seller a month before I demanded a refund because the tracking showed it was in San fransisco for like 2 weeks. I ordered another one from a known good seller and it was at my door in 10 days. I order drivers from Aliexpress from the Wankedun Chain First Store and am extremely satisfied with the shipping speed and prices. t’s taken several failed orders, but I’ve figured out how to buy from overseas and get good success.

Sirstinky makes very good points.

I'd like to add that if you have a bad experience with one AliExpress seller, I say avoid that specific seller, and in the future try to pick more reliable sellers on AliExpress.

I wouldn't avoid all of AE just because some sellers are not reputable.

There are plenty that are worth buying from.

You really should try Convoy, they are great, solid lights at a very decent price.

Here is the link to Simon’s store on AE you asked for….
Convoy Flashlight Store

Take care…. Beer
