Payment methods accepted on AliExpress

Before going into the details of this guide and explaining how to pay on AliExpress , let me explain which payment methods are accepted by the e-commerce site owned by Alibaba.

On AliExpress, for payments from Italy, you can use both PayPal and a credit / debit card from the Visa , MasterCard , American Express or Diners Club circuits (including rechargeable cards ). In addition, it is also possible to pay with Google Pay and Apple Pay , the payment systems of Google and Apple.

If, on the other hand, you are wondering if it is possible to pay by bank transfer on AliExpress , you should know that the only option to use this payment method is to create an Alipay account , a virtual payment platform founded by Alibaba (the same group that launched also AliExpress) and very popular in China. After creating a free account (you can only do it from the AliExpress app, using your phone number), all you have to do is top up it by bank transfer or credit / debit card and use the available amount to pay your shopping.

Finally, it will be useful to know that every purchase made on AliExpress is subject to buyer protection , which allows you to request a full refund if you do not receive your order or a full or partial refund if the item received does not match the description provided by the seller. More info here .

How to pay less on AliExpress

If you are wondering if it is possible to pay less on AliExpress , you will be happy to know that there are some solutions that allow you to save a few euros on your purchases. Which ones are they? I’ll tell you right away!

How to pay on AliExpress with coupons

The first solution you can consider to pay less on AliExpress is to use coupons , that is, discount codes that allow you to lower the cost of the products to be purchased.

There are numerous solutions to receive coupons on AliExpress : in addition to those dedicated to new users that allow you to save on the first order and the discount codes made available by individual sellers, there is an entire section of AliExpress in which you can earn points (eg . inviting other users to create an account on the well-known Chinese e-commerce) to be used to redeem new coupons.

To get coupons from your computer , connect to the AliExpress main page and, if you are a new user, you should see a box on the screen to get a welcome discount code to use on your first order. By clicking on the Get coupon and use it now button , you can log into your account (or create one if you haven’t registered on AliExpress yet) and redeem the code in question.

If, on the other hand, you want to redeem a coupon made available by a seller, all you have to do is access the listing of a single item you intend to purchase, identify any coupon available (it is visible near the price of the item) and press on the Get coupon and Get items to add it to your account.

To view all the coupons you have redeemed and check their expiration date, pause with the mouse pointer on the Account option , at the top right, and select the item My coupon from the opened menu.

In the new screen displayed, by clicking on the Get coupons item , you can also access the section dedicated to coupons and view all the products, divided by category, that have an active coupon.

Please note that after redeeming a coupon, it will be automatically applied to your order during the payment phase. You must know, however, that it is not possible to use more than one coupon for a single order.

From smartphones and tablets , in addition to being able to obtain discount codes by following the instructions I have just given you, using the AliExpress app for Android devices (also available on alternative stores , for devices without Google services) and iPhone / iPad you can get many other coupons by carrying out simple activities.

In addition to the solutions I have just indicated to you, you must know that from the AliExpress app there are many other options that allow you to earn coupons and it would be impossible to mention them all in a single guide. You can find these options both at the top of the AliExpress main screen (eg Cut it , Bonus friends , Coupon Pals etc.) and by clicking on the Account item , in particular in the Share and save more , Games and Services sections .
