Standard Shipping is not the cheapest delivery option but it is for sure a reliable choice. The parcels usually arrive within 15-45 days, the working tracking numbers are available for all shipments.
Standard Shipping Explained
Standard Shipping is a shipping method when the seller sends the product to AliExpress warehouse. The AliExpress logistics department acts as an intermediary between the customer and the seller. So instead of the “Seller –> Courier service –> Customer” consequence, Aliexpress Standard Shipping presupposes a different chain: “Seller –> AliExpress warehouse (the logistics department) –> Courier service –> Customer”.
There are both negative and positive AliExpress standard shipping reviews. An advantage of this option is that AliExpress representatives control the shipping terms and the tracking numbers making it impossible for dishonest sellers to provide fake tracking numbers. AliExpress cooperates with such giants as DHL, Fedex, UPS, Omniva Estonia Post, Singapore Post and others and monitors the shipping process.
Actually, mostly unavailable these days, as almost all parcels are sent with AliExpress standard shipping or another cheap method, and the fare is included in the cost of the order!
