AliExpress Shipping Times to US, UK, Canada, Australia & more 2022!

Worldwide shipping

Are you looking for AliExpress shipping times to the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, India, New Zealand or Pakistan? You’ve come to the right place!!

AliExpress shipping times can be a confusing mess! Depending on the product you’re looking to purchase you’ll often get a few options for shipping. However, if you don’t understand how it all works you can be left with even more questions.

In this article, I have tried to simplify the whole process so you can get a reasonably accurate understanding of which is the best shipping option for your country.

What is “Seller’s Shipping Method”?

When looking at the various shipping options on the AliExpress product page, you may have come across the option “Sellers Shipping Method”.

This simply means that the supplier will use an alternative shipping carrier instead of one of the more commonly known carriers. Usually, these are budget carriers and will provide slow times, however, some suppliers may also have access to carriers such as YunExpress, 4PX or CNE Express.

It may be worth checking the estimated times they provide when it lists seller’s shipping method.

AliExpress Domestic Shipping, is it Real?

You may have noticed in the tables provided I’ve included shipping from worldwide warehouses. You may also notice a lot of these times are still slow. You may be wondering if you live in the US and you only sell products located in US warehouses then why aren’t shipping times only a few days?

Most of the time you order products from domestic warehouses it’s still actually being shipped from China. This is a common tactic AliExpress suppliers use to entice you to buy, however, I have still included the average estimated shipping times as they are listed on AliExpress.

Instead, what suppliers are actually doing is they are using a special shipping line such as, YunExpress or 4PX. During the journey of your package to the US whilst going through customs, a USPS tracking number is generated and a USPS sticker is attached to your package so it looks as though it has come from the US.

I have used the US as an example, however, this applies to all countries who claim their packages came from worldwide warehouses. If you are a dropshipper and want your package to look as though it is being shipped domestically this may be an option for you.

I’m not saying this is always the case although in the vast majority of cases, the packages are still being shipped from China.

It’s not realistic to expect thousands of suppliers to have access to worldwide warehouses whilst managing inventory in each and constantly shipping products to keep warehouses stocked all to save a few days of shipping times for their customers. For more information, I suggest you read my article on how important is free shipping to customers.

What You Need to Know about AliExpress Shipping Times!

To compile the shipping times below, I have checked the shipping times from 100 of the more popular products from different categories on AliExpress. The 100 products were all relatively small and lightweight and if you plan on shipping oversized products you can expect these shipping times to take longer than the estimates below.

These times will be fairly accurate as they did not differ a great deal from each other. Be aware that many of the supplier’s processing times will vary so these shipping times are an estimate.

Another point to consider is these shipping times will fluctuate throughout the year due to a variety of factors. The table I provided is currently from September 2022 but I will update these times every few months to provide the most accurate shipping times possible.

Not all shipping carriers will offer tracking and I have included it in the tables. If you are relying on a parcel it may be a smart choice to only use carriers offering this service. It enables you to track your parcel’s movements to give you a more accurate view of the expected delivery time.

Which is the Best Overall Shipping Option?

It’s easy to look at the tables below, see the shipping times listed and assume the fastest shipping lines are the best ones. The problem is, the fastest shipping lines are also the most expensive!

In the past, ePacket has been the go-to shipping option for most people. It was inexpensive with reasonable shipping times. Since the pandemic, however, ePacket has been on hiatus and can be difficult to find (I will update this table when ePacket becomes available).

If you’re looking for the best value shipping option, AliExpress Standard Shipping is your best choice. It is inexpensive and the shipping times are good compared to other budget options such as, Cainiao. AliExpress Standard Shipping is very common and most suppliers will offer this as an option.
