1-Signing up for an account

The first step to shop from Aliexpress is to sign up for an account, and for that, you need to download the application from the play store on your phone and then execute the following steps:

  • Open the app
  • Click on the account then settings
  • Enter your email address then complete the security test
  • Login into your email then click on the confirmation link
  • Select a password then click Confirm
  • Complete your account settings by choosing a picture, entering your birthday but most importantly set your home address: make sure to add your details such as last name and first name, your phone number, your home address(including street number and door number), then choose your country, Wilaya, city, zip code, and your preferred currency and language.

2-Choosing the right product

So here comes the fun part: Shopping! well, it’s not always fun because oftentimes you should be cautious and smart enough to get good quality products at an affordable price and not get disappointed when receiving your purchase orders

  • Start by searching for the product by typing its name in the search box, if you don’t know what it’s called, you can use its image to get similar products.
  •  Filter the results and then choose the store with the best reviews and ratings (the higher rating is, the better),
  • Check also for the number of orders and the comments of the customers; these are all good indicators that the product is worth buying.


After purchasing your order through your Visa card or WebMoney. If you don’t have a visa card you can check my guide here.
