I've been waiting for an Aliexpress order placed 7 Feb to arrive before ordering any more items. It has toggled from "Shipped by Air" to "In Sorting Center" (China) a number of times in the last couple of months, with it finally staying at "Shipped by Air" since 19 April.

 

In the last month since the previous posts in this thread has anyone had any success with delivery of orders placed in the last few weeks?

 

I am wanting to purchase some spare parts to repair an old LCD TV but would rather wait until delivery was back to the normal 2-5 weeks rather than months before ordering.

I had a small package ordered April 4 arrive in a few days using AliExpress Standard Shipping. It costs more but seems to be quicker most of the time. Still waiting on an order from April 10 using another shipping method and an order from Jan 18 is considered lost (dispute lodged and refunded).

I have 4 items sitting with the last mile courier, which means that they are in NZ. But they have been sitting there for quite some time.

larknz: I have 4 items sitting with the last mile courier, which means that they are in NZ. But they have been sitting there for quite some time.

 

Turns out that it doesnt mean that, it sometimes means that its been handed to the freight consolodator that will bring it to NZ, and then wait for ages at that point before it does get here. At which point it will probably get the red sticker with an alternate tracking number and tracking on the first number will show no progress,

I placed several orders on April 21 which are yet to arrive. Listed as accepted by last mile couriers on May 6.

 

I used Aliexpress standard shipping on all of them as I have found this method to be reliable in the past.

Thanks for the updates.

 

I'll place my order using Standard Aliexpress shipping and see what happens. The part is only $20 so not too much of an issue if it takes a while.

 

I'd be interested in hearing how long it took once your items are actually delivered, and what shipping method was used.

It's a mixed bag of delays. I had 2 orders arrive during level 4 which had only been ordered 2.5 weeks previously.

 

But orders which were placed before lockdown are nowhere to be seen after 2 months.

 

Ach well.

AliExpress just went and updated a whole bunch of my orders as complete in the tracking even though they still show as 'yet to be received', this includes some that showed as arrived in destination country in late March, and others showing awaiting airline.

When were they sent? They will be marked as complete automatically if you don't mark them as received or open a dispute.

 

EDIT: On the Orders page it will say "Confirmation Timeout" if it was completed due to lack of confirmation. Took a while to find the text as I've only had that once, due to a delayed package arriving while I was overseas.

I think you have 15 days after the time out to make a dispute?

2 out of 4 of the above mentioned orders arrived today. 

 

I'm fairly happy with that, given the current state of things.
