Are you looking for sites like AliExpress for shopping online , that accept Paypal? You’d like to see a list of cheap wholesale Chinese websites ?  You want to find shopping sites like AliExpress, for clothes or for shoes, which work with Paypal ?

Hang tight ! This is gonna be a huge post !

You should know first that AliExpress is not the only trustworthy website offering really cheap products : there are a lot of similar websites that allow you to buy stuff from China or Hong Kong, wherever you live. You can be in France, in Switzerland, in Belgium or in the United States, you’re now able to benefit from really good deals. But the most interesting products are not necessarily on AliExpress. That’s why i’m gonna show you the best sites like AliExpress, so that you can know where to go to buy really cheap products.

Why buying from online stores like AliExpress ?

Each of these website offer products which are sometimes priced 3 or 4 times less than the same products in Europe. Why ? This is due to the fact that there is no middle-man between you and the products offered. Those products come directly from factories, and there is no wholesaler between you and them who tries to take a margin in order to make profit.

What are the commonalities between AliExpress and these others Chinese websites ?

  • They deliver products from China (and sometimes from Hong Kong)
  • The offer free worldwide shipping, without any minimum order quantity
  • … but the delivery time is slow (you have to wait between 2 weeks and 1 month in order to receive your order in your mailbox)
  • They offer branded items (which sometimes are replica)
  • Sometimes it may be complicated to return products : the time frames can be long, and some Chinese websites ask you to pay a fee for each return.

This is because of all this points that I strongly advise you to adopt a certain mentality when you buy stuff in China. You should always remember that you’re not surfing on an European or American website. Forget the mentality that consists in saying “Ok, i’ll buy anything that seems interesting, and in a few days i will be able to return some of the items i have ordered and i’ll be easily refunded”. While I adopt this mentality when i am shopping from products in my country, this is not what you should do when you’re choosing items on a Chinese website.

When you order from China, you should do as if you would not be able to return items. Ask yourself : “Would I accept the risk to never be able to return the products i am going to order ?”. If the answer is yes, you can buy them ! But keep in mind that it is gonna be difficult to send them back if something is wrong with the size, or if you realize you don’t like the color of the product.

You should be cautious, but not too much : i know a friend who have ordered dozens of products from Chinese websites, and she never had the need to return the products, because she was happy with her orders.

I’m really passionate about the fact that anyone can buy from Chinese websites. That’s why I give you a list of all the sites like AliExpress that I know. I’ve tried most of them, but not all of them. Consequently, if you have a strong doubt regarding the reliability of one of theme, i give you one advice : just order ONE item, as a test. If you receive it and it’s good, just keep it and you’ll then be able to order more stuff from this particular website.

You must keep in mind that choosing a website to buy stuff from China can be quite tricky, since it’s sometimes hard to know if you are on a trustworthy website. There are dozens of AliExpress competitors, selling different products. Some of them sell all kinds of stuff, whereas others are specialized in a certain type of product : clothing, electronics,…

You don’t want to read my reviews, but just see a bunch of the best websites ? I perfectly understand ! Here’s a list of those I could order successfully from (more are coming soon!) :

1.Banggood, on of the best sites like AliExpress

Banggood, a great site like AliExpress

—–>>>>> Go directly to BangGood<<<<<—–

Banggood owns warehouses in the Netherlands, and in the UK. This means that if you live in France, Switzerland or Belgium, you can receive some of their products within only two weeks (7 to 10 working days) :

Delivery time from banggood

Regarding the other items, they’re sent from a warehouse located in China. You should then allow 7 to 20 working days for the free shipping (corresponding to about one month). However, other faster delivery modes are offered, but you’ll have to pay in order to use them :

The different shipping method available on Banggood

Paying for shipping could be interesting in the cases where you really want to receive an item fast, and you’re willing to pay more to do so.

Concerning the payment methods, you can use a Visa, a Mastercard, but you also can pay with WebMoney or Paypal. This last method will be great in order to reassure european and american customers, who are often afraid of revealing their credit card details on AliExpress.

The payment methods on Banggood

You can pay in several moneys : EUR, USD, GBP, AUD,…

Their customer service is great, very prompt to answer all my inquiries. They seem really motivated to please eastern customers, and this must be one of the best sites like AliExpress which could be a great challenger helping people importing from China.

2. LightInTheBox, specialized in clothing and home decor

The website light In The Box in english

Light In The Box has appeared before AliExpress : indeed, the firm has been selling products on the internet since 2007. This company is based in Hong Kong. I really like the way products are displayed. They each got descriptions which are most of the time very well written, with big pictures and also with customer reviews.

The main difference AliExpress ? Even though you can find a wide range of products on LightInTheBox and that this website seems to be similar to AliExpress, it’s not a marketplace. Indeed, there’s only one vendor on LightInTheBox : this is the company itself ! As a result, you don’t run the risk interacting with scammers. To be fair, this risk is very reduced on AliExpress, thanks to the customer reviews, the mechanism of escrow payment winch allows the site to pay vendors only when the customer has effectively receive the product he has ordered.

Moreover, you can pay with Paypal, which will probably reassurance people who are not accustomed with buying on Chinese sites, and who are afraid interacting with a scammer.

LightInTheBox is specialized in fashion and home products. Be careful when you buy these type of products, because Asian sizes are ridiculously small, mostly because Asian people tend to be smaller than Eastern people. I’ll write posts about the size of clothes and shoes in China very soon, in order to help you buying with more confidence from Chinese websites.
