You can ask any questions you have about shipments directly on AliExpress through this link.
AliExpress is one of the largest online sales sites of Chinese origin, however, it is a web with many details so you may have doubts when buying. And although on its page of frequent doubts the page itself resolves the most frequent doubts of buyers, there are many others that are not resolved. In our blog, we have tried to solve almost all the questions you have asked us in the comments section. Today we're going to explain to you what the orders processed by AliExpress are all about.
What is an AliExpress shipment?
Over the past few years, AliExpress has focused its efforts on improving the shipping time of its sellers and preventing fraudulent express stores.
But today we are not going to talk about this type of shipments but about products sent directly from the AliExpress headquarters, we can identify them by products “Handled by AliExpress” or “Handled by AliExpress”. The objective of this is to ensure that the buyer receives a quality product, without defects and with adequate packaging for shipping to avoid shocks and damage to the content.
Are all products processed by AliExpress?
Not all products are processed by AliExpress. Only a selection of the best products and brands on this website are chosen to be processed by the website itself. However, we will find a wide variety of products: sports accessories, electronics, smartphones, fashion, and accessories… Most products of Chinese brands well known among the regular buyers of AliExpress and with quite a few sales. Therefore, not only will we be buying a product with a good reputation, but we will make sure that it arrives correctly at our home.
What are the benefits of the product being processed by AliExpress?
The seller, instead of sending the products directly to our home, sends them to a center operated by AliExpress where they will be checked that the product works properly and meets the quality parameters, to be finally sent to the final buyer. Therefore, the benefit is that we will be able to avoid unreliable sellers sending us defective products. In addition, if possible, AliExpress will ship the order by the fastest shipping method for your country (usually through AliExpress Standard Shipping), receiving our order in the shortest time possible.
I want to buy products processed by AliExpress, where can I find them?
At the moment there is no particular section where we can find these products permanently, but occasionally AliExpress launches promotions with products processed by AliExpress with a discount, especially when there are sales and discount promotions like 11.11, so the best way to find these products is to visit AliExpress' home page regularly and see the latest promotions. You cannot filter the product search nor is there any other way to access them other than through the home page.
I bought a product processed by AliExpress and I need to complain
Although by purchasing products processed by AliExpress we will avoid disastrous purchases that make us feel like we have lost time and money, there can always be a problem with the product received. The complaint system is the same as if it were not a product processed by AliExpress, the page only interferes in a review of the product, so you can open a dispute as in any other order.
How to identify products processed by AliExpress
The only way to differentiate a product and another processed by AliExpress is that at the top you will find the words “Processed by AliExpress” or “Handled by AliExpress”, especially if your default language while browsing the site is English. As you will see, the product description does not explain anything about what this means.
Other shipping methods with AliExpress partnership
As we have already told you above, there are also some shipping methods that are managed by AliExpress. These types of shipments are facilitated from the platform so that sellers can offer faster and safer shipments. These types of shipments can be easily identified. They are called AliExpress Standard Shipping and AliExpress Premium Shipping. Unlike other means such as China Post, Singapore Post, or DHL, if we select the settlement shipments created by AliExpress, we will receive our purchases faster.
In fact, one of the latest developments of this platform is that through an agreement with some transport companies we will be able to receive our purchases in less than 10 days or even have shipments from several sellers sent in one thanks to the combined delivery. Now you see that there are more and more options to receive your AliExpress shipments in a safe and reliable way.
The products processed by AliExpress are not always available, since they are temporary campaigns that the platform launches occasionally. Therefore, if you want to buy safely, we recommend reading our guide of best sellers where we give you some tips and some recommended stores.

In short: Is it worth buying products processed by AliExpress?
After the experience of buying products processed and not processed by AliExpress, we can come to the following conclusion: buying products processed by AliExpress is worthwhile if there is not much of a difference in price with other sellers or if the other sellers offering the product do not seem very reliable. It is also a good idea to buy products processed by AliExpress if you are starting to buy on this website since it will help you avoid having to check the seller's score, check comments from other buyers… If, on the other hand, you are already an expert and have found the same product and cheaper from a reliable seller, there is no reason to be suspicious, as there are many stores with a good reputation on this website.
