What to Do if the Parcel from AliExpress Returned Back to the Sender

What to Do if the Parcel from AliExpress Returned Back to the Sender

One of the most popular requests of AliExpress users is how to track the parcel or how to know the parcel has arrived. But sometimes there might be another scenario – the parcel is already on its way back to the sender.

What does it mean?

It may happen when:

  • There were prohibited items found in the parcel.
  • The address or the addressee are incorrect.
  • The parcel arrived to the post office and has been stored there for more than 30 days.

How to track your parcel?

What to Do if the Parcel from AliExpress Returned Back to China

First of all, remember the following tips not to have your parcel sent back.

  • Specify your address carefully.
  • Monitor the shipping process with the help of the tracking number. If you see that your parcel has already arrived, go to the post office to pick up your package. If your tracking number can’t be tracked, it is worth visiting your post office once a week and checking if the parcel has arrived.
  • Don’t order prohibited items.

You can check the location of your parcel via “Megabonus – Shipment tracking”.

What to Do if the Parcel Has Already Gone to China

In this case we suggest opening a dispute. You probably won’t be able to have your parcel back, because the customs and the postal services will hardly deal with such a case. So select “Package was returned to seller by shipping company” as a reason for the dispute. In the dispute field specify that you want to receive a full refund and attach a screenshot proving your package returned back to the seller.

Let’s consider the cases when the seller offers to close the dispute and resend the order or send the money to you bypassing AliExpress. We recommend not to accept such offers. Firstly, as soon as the dispute is closed, you no longer have the protection of AliExpress administration. Secondly, if you accept the offer to cooperate outside AliExpress, AliExpress will not be able to influence the results. Moreover, your account can be blocked.

The cooperation with the sellers regarding the purchase of goods outside of the platform is prohibited as the seller is trying to avoid paying commission to AliExpress.

Be careful and patient and the administration will decide in your favor. Don’t forget to install Megabonus extension that will help you to get 4.91% of cash back for any product from AliExpress.

    • Hello. Stores on Aliexpress are responsible for shipping products. In case they cannot ship, there’s no way to send a product. Try to ask the seller to solve the issue.

  4. My order from aliexpress got sent back to seller by customs in china. The seller said he would send another to me. Will this be a problem or will I still have buyer protection? What if I do not receive the item until after the protection time ends and it is broken?? Should I have them refund me then buy again or trust that they will actually send me another??? I bought the item on black friday and the price is currently NOT the same. Will I get the same price if I have them just start a new purchsse order? Ugh
