Aliexpress is an online marketplace aimed at international buyers who want to purchase goods from China. Aliexpress is owned by Alibaba but, whereas Alibaba focuses on bulk products ordering for businesses, Aliexpress allows customers to order a single product. It is commonly compared to eBay, as it allows individual sellers to sell directly to consumers.
Aliexpress is one of the most popular websites worldwide, particularly in Russia and Brazil but also in the Ukraine, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States.
Free shipping is available on many products. Individual suppliers set their own shipping costs, and decided whether or not they ship to specific countries, but overall shipping costs are low or free.
