    Hi all and happy new year. Has anyone experienced problems with sellers on Ali being dishonest? Not sure if someone is having me over at the moment.

    I've only had one issue with Ali and that was over advertised sizing, shipping has often been slow but items have always arrived.

    Anyone looking for slightly better tracking options may find this useful

    They take an age to dispatch and I have had one or two things go missing but normally things arrive within the (long) delivery window.

    I have had some things that were crap quality and received no quibble refunds when I have raised a dispute.

    I've used it quite a bit and not experienced anything I'd call dishonesty. Most things have arrived earlier than expected, and when I've not been happy with the quality of an item it's been sorted. Just be wary of the terminology used in item descriptions as it's often translated crudely from Chinese with frequently misleading (and sometimes hilarious) results.

    If you think you have come across a rogue trader or a fraudulent sale, raise it with AliExpress as soon as you can. They don't want anything to undermine overseas buyers' confidence because that would mean curtains for their business model.

    Not had any dishonest sellers but the shipping to Ireland always seems to take forever even when i've ordered something from same seller at the same time as someone in the UK and they've had theirs weeks before me :(
