If you are someone like me, who is a shopping fanatic, you must definitely love AliExpress. You don’t only get quality but the price you pay for it is super cheap. Who doesn’t want that? Unfortunately, the only drawback to ordering from AliExpress is the long waiting time. Scratch that. It isn’t the only drawback. There are multiple. Sometimes you get the parcel, and the custom fee you have to pay is heftier than the total amount of the parcel itself. While the other times, you never get to see your order.
So, have you ever wondered where does your order goes and where was it all this time? I have an answer for you:
Where Is My AliExpress Parcel?
This is one question everyone has asked once it is over 40 days to the order they placed over the app or website. When you track your order, it shows that the package has been dispatched from China or has reached your hometown’s local post office, but you don’t get to see where it is. Within a few days, the app tells you that the order has been completed and it asks whether you liked it or not. All the while, you are unaware of where exactly your parcel is.
Don’t worry, this isn’t you. This is the plight of hundreds and thousands of Pakistanis who order from AliExpress. They have no idea why they receive their packages sometimes while the other times, their orders do not get to see the light of the day. But here is what the reality is.
What Happened To My Order?
In Pakistan, unfortunately, more often than not, your AliExpress parcels fall on the wrong hands. From the post offices, they are sold to local retailers or vendors in the condition they were sent. What I mean is that they aren’t opened, but rather are packed and are allegedly sold to these sellers on the per kg price. These local Sunday bazaar vendors (now online stores as well), then place a one-amount tag on all the packages without opening them for the customers who want to buy them on their luck.
What’s more, is that it isn’t the Sunday bazaar thing anymore. Many online stores have these parcels who do live sessions and upon the viewer’s confirmation, open the packages, and sell it to them. If you don’t believe me, believe this video!
Who Is Responsible?
It doesn’t take a lot to understand who is responsible here. Like always, Pakistan Post is making us proud here as well. These packages are delivered to Pakistan Post by China Express Delivery. From Pakistan Post is how these parcels are sold to vendors, retailers, or whoever (to be honest) with a per KG price tag.
Like always, instead of fulfilling the duty, they were assigned, our local post offices look for ways to earn money. These parcels are paid for since AliExpress works on a credit model and not COD. People invest their money on these items, while Pakistan Post does what it is best at. And that is thievery and utter corruption. About time we get to know how this area can be reformed and our deliveries become safe, as they were supposed to be all along.
