    Hey guys,
    Recently started a new dropshipping business and all going well, instagram is exploding and the traction is good.
    Im using Oberlo so all orders are SUPER easy and stuff, but then theres the issue with aliexpress.

    It wont let me order anything anymore? Saying I need to appeal and submit a load of shit to them like driving lisence and a message and stuff?
    Is there something i did wrong? Or anyway I can get it done quicker than the 1-3 working days that they said to me?

    PLEASE HELP ME.

    So just go along with what they're saying? Provide all information? Is it safe?

    And is there a way to get done quicker? Or do I just have to wait?

    Yes it's safe, send both sides of you credit card, but you can cover the first few numbers
    You can also email them at [email protected] with the subject "verification for your Order on Aliexpress" and supply the info. Do both so it's done faster
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Why would aliexpress, one of the biggest online retails, try to steal from a dropshipper lol

    Of course it is safe.

    I got my AliPay account verified but I still can't place orders.
    I emailed them twice but no reply so far.

    Any ideas or solutions?

    Hey man, how long ago was this? In the end mine got verified and passed etc - but not until after 2 weeks or so.


    Had to refund all my orders for the site in question. Not ideal.

    After I placed my first order, they canceled it so I switched to PayPal payment (had to pay 80 cents more) and it worked. Then they prevented me from placing any more orders either with CC or PP for a week now.
    I got the verification email from AliPay yesterday, but I think that once it's verified I'm supposed to be able to place orders again which didn't happen.

    I'm going to email them again and again until they do it.

    btw, Did anyone try to open a new account with a different email and buy again with the same CC?

    Is there a way to verify before being asked?
    I asked about it to prevent a 2 weeks operations shutdown in case the verification pop up

    I created a new account and immediately tried to buy a $10 Ali Pocket which got blocked and I got the verification email with a link.
    I uploaded my passport copy and a flight invoice with the same billing address as my credit card. Then I started bugging the customer service in a nice way to accelerate activating the account. After 30 minutes of chatting with 4 representatives, one of them promised to finish the activation within 5 hours.
    I got the verification email after 6 hours then when I tried to pay again I had to activate my AliPay account which took about 15 minutes.

    Then, finally, I'm able to buy stuff from AliExpress.

    My suggestion: if you want to avoid that two weeks thing, try to buy a $10 AliPocket early on so if they will block the purchase, you can finish the account verification early on.
