This article is a continuation of post found here: How to Register and Shop Scam-free on AliExpress.com – Step by Step! Go and read it, you might find it useful mostly if you are just new to Aliexpress.com portal.
Below is an interesting fact.
Fact: Smart mini importers do not really order the first product they see. Rather, they use searching and filter boxes in order for them to be able to locate products, compare prices of the products they are interested in before actually placing order.
So, to search for the product you want, review the product details, view sellers rating, check feedbacks from previous customers and if you are satisfied with the seller’s feedbacks and rating which should be at least 95% and above, then message the seller (2 to 3 sellers) about availability, color, size, ship out time etc. and waited for replies.
And again, always control the search and filter options available to suit your need.
See e.g. below:
Click on any of those options that suit your need as seen below:
When you find the product that meets your requirements and are satisfied with it, then message the seller about anything concerning the product, mixed colours, features, sizes etc. “please don’t assume that everything about the product is ok as describe by the seller on AliExpress”.
And if you have marked the “seller online” box, you are likely to get a response in no time when you message such seller.
Once you are through with your research, select the size, color, quantity means of delivery (normal free shipping or expedited i.e DHL etc.) and you can then click on “buy now”
After clicking on Buy Now, you will see a page like the one below:
Next is to Fill BELOW your real information FOR SHIPPING!
And then you can simply select MasterCard or Visa depending on the one issued to you by your local bank here in Nigeria eg. GTbank or UBA etc. Input all the required information and click “Pay Now” as seen below:
The equivalent amount will be debited from your bank account, your bank will alert you via sms or email.
After that, depending on the sellers processing or ship out time, you will receive an email which contain a tracking number that your order have been shipped via Singapore __ __ ___ or China air mail or any of the expedited shipping means(e.g. DHL etc.) Based on what you both agreed upon during the ordering process.
When you receive the tracking number either via email link to your AliExpress account dashboard, all you need to do is to copy it and head over to the said freight or shipping company’s website where the seller instructs you to track your items, paste the code there and click on track, you will then see the information about your items you will also see the status at the moment of your goods there.
Once your goods get to the post office (in case of free shipping) or Freight/Cargo Company (paid shipping) e.g. DHL, they will call or message you for confirmation and collection via the information you filled during the ordering process as your “shipping information”.
That’s all. Go sell it on Konga Online Shopping Mall here.
