How can I use AliExpress combined delivery?

Before explaining how you can this option and how it works, you should know that this benefit isn’t available on all products on the platform. In fact, only sellers can activate and offer this service.

Having said that, we’ll explain how the combined delivery process offered by AliExpress works.

Specifically, this mode of purchase allows you to regroup several orders you have placed within the platform. That is, it doesn’t matter if the products are from different sellers, what is relevant is that all-selected items have this option. Otherwise, you won’t be able to place the order.

Now, you may be wondering, how do I get products with the combined delivery option on AliExpress? This is quite simple since you must do it through the filter that the portal incorporated into the search engine.

Also, you should know that the products can be combined no matter what category they belong to. Therefore, with this service you’ll be able to get a good variety of items at affordable prices and for a single shipping amount.

It’s worth mentioning that, to make it easier, once you have finished selecting the products, we recommend that you pay for them all together to speed up the process. However, if you don’t want to use this combined delivery method, then you’ll have to pay for each item separately.

What are the advantages of using AliExpress’ combined delivery?

According to the experience of users, using AliExpress’ combined delivery has different advantages, among which the following stand out:

You’ll purchase several products at the same time and pay for only one delivery

If you usually buy small and low-cost items on AliExpress, this combined delivery service will allow you to get them all in one package. Consequently, it’ll save you the worry of keeping tabs on several tracking numbers at once.

Your package will arrive faster

Thanks to this option of having multiple products in the same package, your orders will arrive faster. This will happen because it’ll be a larger shipment and AliExpress will give more priority to your order, regardless of whether it has an ordinary shipping method. Thus, you’ll have it in a very short time at home.

At the same time, combined delivery always offers you a tracking number. This way, you can be sure that your package will arrive safely.

Customs advantage

Among other benefits, if you receive products through combined delivery, you’ll have a particular advantage in customs. Specifically, by receiving products from different sellers in a single package, you’ll save money and speed up the customs paperwork, since, it’s a single item.

Which is better: AliExpress Standard Shipping or AliExpress Saver Shipping?

It’s of utmost importance that you know that combined delivery only unifies orders. Therefore, to have your package delivered, you’ll have to choose between two shipping options: AliExpress Standard Shipping or AliExpress Saver Shipping.

To help you choose which one is best for you, you should first analyze the total cost of your order. If your entire purchase is worth less than 5 dollars (or euros), it’s best to choose AliExpress Saver Shipping. Simply because it’s cheap ordinary shipping, and has a fairly decent delivery time.

Otherwise, if you plan to pay for a package worth more than 5 dollars (or euros), you should probably choose AliExpress Standard Shipping; since this method has tracking and is much faster in delivering packages.

What will the tracker number be?

Once you’ve made your purchase, the sellers of each product you purchased will provide you with the tracking numbers for each one. However, when the items arrive at the AliExpress logistics center, another tracking code will be generated. This last one will be the one you’ll have to use to control your package.

However, there is a caveat: this process may take a couple of days. Therefore, we recommend that you do not despair if the AliExpress website or the portal application is not updated immediately.

Free returns, order cancellation, and other inconveniences

In addition to combined delivery, AliExpress incorporated another feature for its consumers: free returns. However, if you want to use this possibility, you should know that the portal will allow you to return products only once.

Also, in AliExpress you’ll be able to cancel an order, but this will only work if you do it before the package is dispatched. Thus, remember that you must stop an order minutes after the purchase has been made or during the seller’s processing. Otherwise, you’ll lose this opportunity.

Even if you used combined delivery when you made your purchase, but you only need to cancel a particular product, you can do so. That is, you have the right to select the items that you really don’t want in your order.

Remember that if you want to stop an order, you can find out how to do it in our article: Learn how to easily change or cancel an order on AliExpress.

Whatever the case may be, our recommendation is that if you have any doubts, changes, or concerns, you should always contact the seller. This way, you ensure that you can reach an agreement and avoid affecting the shipping process of the order.

What if I’m missing a product in my combined delivery?

Although this situation is not usual, if it happens you should know that you can always contact the seller. Send them a picture of the order you received and another one of what you ordered, so they can come up with a solution.

Remember that in case the order was lost in the AliExpress logistics center or elsewhere, you can open a dispute and get your money back. Now, if you don’t know what we’re talking about, check our article on AliExpress disputes.

What does the message “Your package has been upgraded to combined delivery” mean?

You should know that this message is sent to you by AliExpress, and it means that one of your orders has been upgraded to combined delivery. Subsequently, you’ll receive another notice saying “You have enjoyed combine delivery service with faster shipping”.

Even though we explained that it’s your choice whether to place a combined order or not, there are times when AliExpress groups several small packages together in order to reduce the time and cost of the final delivery.

Customs and combined delivery

As mentioned above, ordering or receiving a combined delivery package can be very advantageous, particularly with customs. Since they’re small packages grouped in a single order, they shouldn’t cause you any trouble.
