    There's an old saying ...

    If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't.

    Well I have experiences with alibaba but not the alibaba express.

    Alibaba has many scams. Once I was live chatting with the dealer. And He responded. However, It's ridiculous he give me 2 different pricing on 2 different day. So I doubt and google over his company name and address and really he's a scam.

    However aliexpress has escrow protected. It's quite safe. Although I haven't try. You could check on his rating. and Do more conversation with him. Find any loop holes.

    If you don't want speculations, or other advice, why don't you try it yourself and then post your experience here?

    Alibaba is just a marketplace like ebay. Anyone can register and post garbage. And this includes all the Nigerian scammers who enjoy preying on the gullible...
