    Don't waste your time with aliexpress unless you plan to buy through your aff links and dropship. It is not worth it since they changed cookie duration.

    I wouldn't hold your breath, it varies greatly but they do take a really long time from what people have told me

    Cookie duration is now session based. I understand why they did it, but it only makes sense to be an affiliate now if you are a dropshipper, otherwise it's a waste of time and money.

    You can try epn.bz, They have a default 8,5% for aliexpress and WMZ, ePayments, Wire payout options. I was approved in 3 days.

    For regular Aliexpress affiliates, I was accepted within 5 days. But I'm not using it anymore, not worth it.

    Is it really not worth it because of the end of the 30 days cookies duration ?

    I mean, 8 % is great ! And it's the same as amazon...
    Is the conversion less high than with amazon affiliates since they changed the cookie duration ?

    I'm building a website to promote AliExpress stuff, what do I need to be accepted on their partnership program ? Is a little website with 10 pages about AliExpress shipping, business model and some product review will be sufficient ?
    Thx

    Although it appears that AliExpress is undergoing similar phases as Amazon, it's completely the opposite.

    The cookie has indeed changed, but the performance on how they operate with custom / reduced pricing options in addition to that actually rose competitiveness, thus boosting performance in the long run.

    The conversion rate is still roughly or even higher due to the fact foreign products are becoming widely popular... The growth of this sector revitalizes everything and with future planning on Ali's extent will repeatedly outperform Amazon strictly because of the uniqueness and creativity of the product offering.

    There's nothing to fear, now is the perfect time to operate with this affiliate program. Conversions in all majority have seamlessly boosted themselves despite the appearance and fear of this change.

    aliexpress affiliate is a wast of time and money. Is better to look for ebay or amazon. I tried aliplugin and seems not anymore working because the change of cookies duration.
    I prefer amazon affiliate.

    I think you have to make sure that people who discover AliExpress thanks to your site don't buy directly from AliExpress but keeps coming to your website

    Hey friends please advice which plugin is best for creating Aliexpress affiliate website where user is not redirected to the Aliexpress website but makes payment and stays on the website. Also why are some people against the Aliexpress affiliate websites since I am new to this I am not able to find any flaws in it.
