My Aliexpress Experience – Shipment to Philippines

First, let me share with you my shipping FAQs when ordering abroad.

Below are the answers for Aliexpress.

Will my item arrive and in good condition?

Will I pay for custom fees?
Possible. It will depend on the cost of your purchased item.

Will it be door to door delivery?
If you chose the free shipping (China registered air mail), no! You will have to claim it in your municipality post office. And pay an additional 112php (as of Dec 2015)!!!

Ok, enough of my tiny FAQs hehehe!

When you order from Aliexpress, you have an option for “FREE SHIPPING”, usually via China Registered Airmail. If you chose this, your item will be delivered to your municipality post office (not door to door)! Well in my case.

For my item, I got the claim letter from the post office 20 days after Aliexpress confirmed my payment.

Then on the same day, I claimed my item.
They only asked me for my ID. Then asked me to log on their log book!

I paid 112 pesos for the post office fee!!!! Arghhhhh… before it was just 50 pesos… then became 100… then 112 because they added VAT 😐

Below are my ordered items! Alive and kicking! LOL


Please don’t hesitate to comment below for your questions and concerns. I MIGHT be able to help. Hehehe! Happy Ali Express Shopping!

  1. Nay tanong ko lang, claim letter lng isend sayo? Di ba sila magtxt or call from post office?
    Marami kasi ako order natrack ko nasa post office na daw pero wala pang info kung saan na post office.

    • Hello Mon mon! Sorry ang late ng reply ko. Nako! Hindi nag tetext ang post office or tumatawag. Paminsan nga iniiwan lang nila claim letter sa letter box!!! Ahhh matagal talaga yung item sa post office. Based sa experience ko parang paminsan e weeks yung item doon.

    • Hello Kim. I haven’t tried that option yet. But, I asked the chinese seller about it. If you choose EMS, you will claim it at pasay. If you choose DHL/Fedex/UPS, it’s door-to-door. Take note that you have to pay custom tax πŸ™‚

  2. i ordered feb. 14 and because of the chinese new year the shipment was moved on the 1st of march. mga ilang araw kaya intayin ko if ever i addressed it sa province?

    • Hello Joeryl. After matanggap ng post office, ang idedeliver lang nila sa address na ginamit mo ay yung claim slip. Tapos ikaw na bahala mag claim sa post office. Dapat maclaim mo yun 30 days before nung date na naka indicate sa claim slip.

  3. Hello, Nanay, thank you sa article mo 😊 I’m expecting 3 packages from Ali, ngayon ko lang nabasa ug article mo, akala ko madedeliver dretso sa bahay πŸ˜” Hindi pala ta my fee pa. Alam mo ba kung tatlong fee rin ang babayaran ko since 3 packages ang darating?
