Even though the term means Full Container Load, it is not necessary that you will have to fill the container, but you will pay for the whole container.

Blue opened container with carton boxes inside


You can have a live loading where your forwarder gives you a few hours to load your cargo which is less costly.

Alternatively, you can have a Drop and Ship option where your forwarder drops the cargo at your premises and gives you a few days to load your cargo.

The latter option is a bit expensive and comes with fines if you surpass the given days.

Once you have found your product, you need to counter check the product regarding color, size, version, etc. the reason for this is to get the right product.

For instance, you may have a cloth which is not or the right size.

You can now go ahead and place the order after which you pay for it.

Your item will be shipped directly to your address that you indicated

Shipping of your product can either be through the postal address or DHL.

Delivery through the postal address is cheaper but takes longer for your cargo to arrive.

However, you are limited to the size of cargo you can ship.

One thing to remember is that you will have to pay for all the shipping cost and take care of the customs clearance.

Some of the ways that you can make payments for items on AliExpress include bank transfers and master card.

You can also pay through western union or money transfer.

While shopping using AliExpress, you need to find a trustworthy seller for your goods.

Here are a few tips on how you can go about finding a reliable seller.

· Check on the reputation of the seller

You can check the reputation of the seller at the top right corner of the AliExpress website.

What happens is that each seller has a score that checks on the seller’s communication, accurate description of the item and the shipping speed.

These scores are generally green for above average and red for below average.

Always go for a seller with an above average score.

· Check on the seller review ratings

You can go through the review ratings of the seller to pick a seller that you will engage with for your shipping.

Most customers have the opportunity to describe their feelings about the services of a given seller.

You will also be able to know how the customers feel about a particular product.

A good seller will have positive reviews which can enable you to engage for your product.

· Number of people who have purchased a given item

Another way of finding a seller on AliExpress is by checking the buying times of a particular product from a seller.

The higher the number of times the product has been bought, the higher the likelihood the seller is genuine.

· Contact the seller

If you are in doubt about the quality of the goods, you can get in touch with the seller directly.

AliExpress allows you to contact the seller for clarification.

You can ask about the quality and picture samples of the product to confirm if indeed you are buying the correct product.
