I ordered a DAC from this website. All depends on the seller but it was premium one. Price was around $900. Delivery was fast and product was excellent.

They declared $50 invoice to avoid high custom fees.

Hi Kareem,
Which DAC was it?
What kind of inputs did it have?

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

I ordered friday a great jacket ( recommend it for all)  for 39 bucks ( type lucker shark military jacket and you will find numerous seller selling it ) and a charging dock for my xperia z for 10 bucks.
The shipment takes between 15 to 60 days to arrive.  ( after all we cant complain about this matter since its free)

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

Guys many of you suggested that we should contact the seller before ordering, what should I ask exactly? what should I make sure of?

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

I contacted the seller, and asked if the LED strip i ordered could be cut off. And stuff like that about the product.
I also asked some questions about the shipment. The item will be delivered at my house through the local post office (which im guessing will be Liban Post) .
They also mentioned that customs may apply. But assured me that they will put a low cost invoice on it, to make a low custom fee on it when arrived here, if none at all.

Ali bassem.  if you dont have anything particular to say just ask him if the desired product is in stock.  sometimes the product may be out of stock even if it is still listed.

I bought many items through aliexpress.

You need to be careful though and check the feedback/comments left for the item and the seller.

Always communicate with the seller before buying, check their response time and if they are helpful.

Learn when to open disputes and the correct way to handle them. (especially if the tracking number is fake)

After receiving my first order from aliexpress without a problem, i went ahead and ordered a more expensive item. I received my shipping mail notice on 16th of november but until now i cannot track my item on china post website. contacted the seller who confirmed shipping. starting to get worried. what do you recommend? did you successfully disputed a purchase?

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

i think the shipping now is taking more time, since its christmas... so you should expect a minimum of one month waiting time.

It's not about shipping time. No tracking information first 10 days after shipping on china post then 7 days after reshipping on swiss post.

Re: AliExpress in Lebanon

Just wanted to update, i received an item i have ordered, Libanpost called me, and told me that my item is now in Libanpost X branch.
i went there, gave them the tracking number, and got my item without paying any additional fees.

Cons from ordering from AliExpress are the bad tracking system (with Chinaair)

but everything else is good.

In theory, they should get it delivered to your house, unless they go the first time and can't find you.  Then you either have to pay for the delivery or go and get it yourself.
