For folks staying in India,importing electronics is not difficult,but will take few months to learn the tricks of the trade.Just make sure you have a good clearing agent and a good manufacturer in China,everything else will move smoothly.Also,the government has made duty charges on most electronics 0% or non dutiable.


1.Aliexpress is a fish market,and you are the king.You have the power to bargain,as there will be many supplier selling the same product.Dont feel awkward to ask for a better deal,the chinese are really accommodating people.

2.Be weary of dubious sellers.If there are 5 sellers for a particular product all quoting 5$ and the sixth offers it to you for $4,take a hint and stay away,its almost certainly a scammer.Other scamming tricks are free product offers,like if you buy 100 pieces you get a25% off,or if you buy 200 pieces you get a netbook free etc.

3.Always inquire about the shipping cost as this can increase your cost greatly,some suppliers offer free shipping,so check for that,or if you are a hard bargainer,you can get the shipping charges reduced.

1.In addition to these prices you would have to pay  a shipping fee of about 20-30 odd dollars,depending on the product and the country that you live in,because some products are offered with shipping free for certain countries.

2.Fedex is the most expensive,follow by ups and dhl,a cheaper alternative would be by the local parcel service of hongkong mail or china post,but they take about 20 days .

So check some of these products out on ALIEXPRESS INDIA -Aliexpress, Alibaba’s sister site, that came to light, little under  a year ago has amassed global appeal by showcasing a variety of products targeted to small importers and individual buyers.It offers an excellent escrow service for payment, and its probably ,if anyone got a few extra hundred bucks,and as a last bit im going to add that you need to bargain.I suggest you add the sales operator from the company you will buy from to your msn messenger and try and get a 10-15% off on the price…after all,Its  a buyers market.

    I’m trying to make payment on Ali express using my ICICI VISA credit card. It always gets declined. I tried my Debit card too, same issue. I think The VISA 3D Secure is the issue.
    How do you pay, what the best way to pay?

    Should shipping address be same as Credit Card address ?
