You have to skip the first payment page and then go back to the order and click pay now. You should have less issues then.

That's what I do but then it doesn't remember my CC info, so I have to type it in for each order.

I order often and have no issues with Mastercard.  Strange.

I'm tracking an order and the latest says this, there's been no movement since 2/5. Is this normal?



and the only thing usps says is "Origin Post is Preparing Shipment - We have received notice that the originating post is preparing to dispatch this mail piece."
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

yes,
the reason the shipping is so cheep is that its subsidized by the Chinese government (free for small packages) ,
the way i understand it is that there is a big "box" and when its full they send it out to the next stop,
that's why you get it somewhere between 2 weeks and 3 months

I found this place https://track-chinapost.com/?page_id=242/china-post-forum-group1/china-post-discussion-forum14.0

Which seems to have a good response rate. I have no idea if "chinapostvolunteer" is actually affiliated with china post but at lease he/she is actually someone to talk to.

The response I got was:

Quote
"...shows the parcel was sent it to airline on Feb 5,2021. No update since then. Normally no news is good news which means the parcel has finally passed safety scan. It is waiting for flight space to USA.

Waiting time will take 2 to 6 weeks, you will see next update after parcel arrives USA."
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

When I first started ordering from them I had no issues whatsoever.  More recently, I have had to dispute nearly every other purchase - mostly quality issues on tech items.  Now I am stuck with a charger (ordered from them because not many other places have it, and the others cost a fortune to ship to EY) on which I originally gave a good review, but stopped working right after the time period for adding to the review expired.  They are shipping me a new one, but I would like to put in my review that it didn't work for long (along with kudos for the CS).  Does anyone know how I can do this?

Hi.
First time posting, but I need information that I can't find anywhere else reliable. I hope someone can help.

I am looking at several pieces of electronics on Ali Express. Video-type games, interactive and a projector for a different project as well. What is the general opinion on buying this type of product from vendors on the site?

Is the return policy and money back policy enforced and reliable?

The cost is so much less than the products I am seeing on Amazon, for example. Just wondering if I am throwing money away on a vastly inferior product and with the manufacturer so far away.

Any input would be appreciated.
