AliExpressdefective products on aliexpress

C Review updated:

I bought 2 x 400w wind turbines on aliexpress. The supplier (ten high) sent me the goods. I confirmed the goods received and the money was released. Now, I checked the goods in the box and there didn`t appear to be any damage besides some oil covering the plastic.In order to fully check a wind turbine it must be installed, i. E mounted on a tower and connected through a series of wiring - not something you do on the spot.
Anyway, some weeks later when the wind turbines were installed, I discovered they were defective, one doesn`t work and the other has a defect with the nucleus and only produces 5 volts under any wind conditions. I have contacted the supplier no less than 50 times over 5 months and all he does is stall, saying, ` be calm, wait patiently, try doing tis try doing that, try disassembling this - a nightmare! Now he doesn`t respond any of my emails. So, I contacted aliexpress to help, afterall I chose this supplier through their service and they are responsible for their suppliers. But aliexpress seems to be a scammer as well as they take sides with the seller saying, you confirmed delivery. My response, ok yes I did confirm the goods were received but this is a warranty matter now, the seller promises to refund, replace or fix the goods for a 1 year warranty - something that isn`t happening. So, aliexpress does nothing if their suppliers don`t comply with their gauranties - what a scam! I was a platinum user at aliexpress now I won`t use thier services anymore - too many scammers involved for my liking.

    Everyone has to understand Aliexpress sellers work in large teams for the Chinese factories who are trying to find a market for their defective products which have been rejected by the original company who commissioned the products .So all products sold on Aliexpress are defective in some way.Some more so some less so.But all are defective and are factory rejects. In the US we call them "seconds".That's why they are so cheap.

    @pearlymae Wish I had seen this before I ordered. Now I am stuck with a dented sink that I paid $400 for. What a scam. Our government needs to step in and charge them with fraud.

    but how is that aliexpress cant do any thing about it.

    i was a victim too of the same issue. the seller sent me non standard compliant product. and i have become a scape goat.

    i asked aliexpress for warranty. but it seems that aliexpress is keen with the seller.

    I ordered a ski helmet in mid November 2018 and I received it after 2 months in mid January 2019. When I opened the parcel I show that helmet was damaged and I sent my first message to supplier MERBAO No 5 Store. They ignored me completely. I send 3 other messages and tried to open dispute but there was no reaction! This is the worst customer service I ever experienced ! Aliexpress should do something in these cases when suppliers behave this way because who will trust Aliexpress ? I am afraid to place an order by Aliexpress again. I want my money back !The order no was 96159715445331, the tracking number LX924598194CN and I paid USD 35, 90.
