Offsets the GST :) From my experience these stack with cashback but expire quickly from too many uses.
So generous AliExpress!
Too bad we’ve all moved to DHgate now.
are they cheaper than aliexpress? how about gst?
dont seem cheaper to me for the things ive searched
Interestingly if you supply an ABN on checkout it removes the GST. Haven’t tried it yet so not sure if there’s any implications if anyone could enlighten me. I wouldn’t imagine customs or the ATO would really care too much on the tax on something small from DHgate.
on DHgate or aliexpress?
he and his families.
You've upset the AliExpress propaganda machine on OzBargain. Say goodbye to your social credit.
SHOPNEW is not listed on CR or SB so maybe not eligible
What sort of things do u guys buy off Aliexpress?
I cant find many things that arean't cheaper on ebay
well, i have bought probably close to 60 items, range from $0.20 to $100. all arrived all good.
@peterpeterpumpkin: Just echoing chimot's comments, I've got over 80 items now from AliExpress. I've had only 2 issues (one necklace which didn't quite look like the photo and one item which took over 2 months to arrive) and in both cases I got a refund with very little hassle
@tpup1: I think it's too late for me to be pursuaded by anonymous people on the internet. I'm just countering all the faceless reviews with another anonymous faceless review to provide balance. Think of me as the 5% on eBay that let's you know that 95% isn't actually all that good.
I never used to lodge a complaint despite obviously receiving "seconds", but their latest handling of an obvious scam sealed it. This was their chance to prove themselves.
Their dispute department consists of loyal servants that lack any basic reasoning skills.
My name must mean "sucker" in Chinese.
@peterpeterpumpkin: Out of curiosity, what was the scam? Also what do you mean by receiving seconds - as in defect products?
@tpup1: I don't want to identify the seller or myself, but the scam is quite a common one apparently. You buy an electronic item for say $6 and the seller sends an unrelated (though sometimes semi-related), often "old tech" electronic item that probably costs them a few cents (like many sellers on eBay that use phone screen protectors and 15 year old USB and audio tech to fake a lower sorted price, but in the case of AliExpress scammers they don't advertise alternate products at all). The package may or may not be faded so you can't give AliExpress the tracking number they require to process disputes. With a tracking number you might get 50% off or more via dispute, despite the item being useless to you with no resale value. The seller often makes a profit that matches or exceeds the cost of the wrong item sold separately, if anyone would actually buy it (hence the scam). With a faded tracking number you get nothing. I have received 100% back before (with a tracking number, defective product) but if it was one off I would have had the same opinion of AliExpress as yourself (since it was my fault for never raising the issue over the years).
How did I know this particular mistake was intentional? Everybody received the same, completely unrelated item. 100% negative reviews. Others complained of AliExpress not giving any refund either (which is strange since they would probably offer a refund on damaged goods, but not completely different ones). And the seller refuses to communicate. On eBay sellers throw refunds at you not to lodge a complaint. AliExpress' dispute department doesn't even get back to you when you lose an appeal!
And yes, by seconds I mean defective or rejected products. USB ports upside down. QC ports the wrong colour or wrong position. Clothing and shoes with buttons and rivets in the wrong position and back to front. I think the items were always the wrong colour since they send whatever comes in the seconds box from the factory. You also get electronics with bad or loose connections, but cheap no names from eBay have this reputation as well.
The scammers might make only a few thousand out of this, but I don't want the online world pretending a problem doesn't exist because 95% are happy.
@peterpeterpumpkin: Interesting info - thanks for sending this through. Totally agree that we shouldn't pretend a problem doesn't exist at all, but it's still worth noting that a lot of people have had a positive experience. To be honest, it surprises me to hear all this given my experience with AliExpress.
I've made over 150 purchases and have received everything, except for maybe 1 or 2 items.
I get a lot of electronics, my girlfriend gets some jewellery, watches. For a lot of things it's way cheaper than eBay and the search function is so much easier to use
I find Aliexpress to be cheap and more reliable for oerding things from China than eBay is. Everything I order from Aliexpress arrives. I can't say the same about eBay.
