Buying stuff from Aliexpress for you :)

So I’ve been playing a lot with Ali coupons lately and kind of run out of stuff to buy.
And I was thinking I could make some profit from it instead.
Basically, I can buy small things for 30%-70% off, depending on the product.
So you give me the link to the product(s) you want, I make you an offer, you send me the $ if it’s ok, and I make the order to your address.

I also don’t have anything to purchase atm, but would you mind sharing how you generated the coupons? Thanks!

From invites, new account promotions, coupon pal game and others.
The trick is to fool their system that you are new to the site, or that you invite someone new & so on.
There are a bunch of checks that they do when you make the order, like the IP, device, address.. and I figured out how to bypass them Big Smile

It is about those $3-$5 incentive coupons that new members get?

It always seemed shady to me why long time customers aren’t getting any offers while new members regularly receive discounts.

Basically yes, but there are higher value coupons available too.
Best one I think is $16 off $20 or something like that, but its very hard to get

I you have lots of relatives or friends you can use their phones to register new accounts and make an order from each one, without having to get clean IPs or fake phones

It is amazing that some customers have to use a phone number to sign up. I never had to put mine in for registering.
won’t they catch up on you and delete the accounts at some point?

Yeah it would be nice after spending a lot of money to get atleast every month few good red coupons. Being an Diamond member and all.

They don’t care.
If they catch you they close the order made with the coupon and that’s it. They don’t even ban the account lol. Some people will try to make another order with the same account and coupon and sometimes it actually goes trough the 2nd time.

And they only ask for phone verification (SMS) when registering if the IP is “dirty”. Dirty – meaning too many accounts were using the IP.
I think that’s an issue with ISPs that don’t have many IP ranges available and allocate the same IP to many customers.
I haven’t encountered SMS verification so far Big Smile

I read somewhere that in Russia last year were made more new Aliexpress accounts than the country’s population lol

wow, interesting! thanks for sharing.

I guess they only care about the bottom line, the more sales, the more credit cards and the more funds coming in – the better. Their prices are really good, I have to admit. If anyone has a hobby or interest that requires lots of smaller parts and items, this is a good deal. Very large or expensive products are more likely to get caught at customs and invoiced.

This is also something we should count or at least acknowledge, the savings in sales tax is enormous if you shop enough. In total I have saved more than 800 $US in sales tax in just over two years.

I just get most of the stuff I ‘choose’ on Aliexpress from ebay, it’s nearly always cheaper sometimes by quite an amount.

I have noticed the same thing. With ebay though, I can pay using paypal for the insurance and peace of mind.
There is a few things that just are not sold on ebay though, like a clone of a USA name brand knife. You can find them on Ali or dhgate all day long but not on ebay.
I’m guessing because the treat of a lawsuit or ebay’s rules.
I still check ebay before ordering from Ali for the insurance of using Paypal even if its slightly more expensive.

So what happens when an item is defective or never shows up?
Just dispute it in paypal and now you’re responsible for the refund?
Doesn’t sound like a good idea for these reasons
