Like a barter system--you want something, you must give something. You cannot read any employer review unless you create an account. Immediately, it asks you to rate your own company and rate an interview. I guess that's how they build up data so quickly.
I have ordered many things from Amazon.ca, from DVDs to books to household stuff. Not all the products I have received are true to the advertisements. Shipping ETD is usually accurate (they even mark on my cell phone calendar automatically). I liked that when I search for something it lists all the sellers who sell the same item so I can compare deals. The only complain I have is that the .com site carries more products than .ca site.
The Search Box is virtually useless. Most times it yields no result, other times it spits out pages of pages of irrelevant items which you'll have to spend a day to scroll through. Prices of most products are generally reasonable but the shipping fees are outrageous. I ordered something that costs $12, the shipping was $16 (the cheapest option). It took two months for my order to get to Canada. If I want courier service I'll have to pay $30. Goodness, my order costs only $12, who with a sane mind would pay $30 for a household item! I supposed the seller won't take chances with regular mail as my order was wrapped in three layers of foam and bubble sheets, and was placed in a box bigger than it is necessary. It was sent by signature-required registered mail. So I guess the $16 is worth the guarantee receipt of goods. If they don't offer cheaper mailing options, I doubt if I would buy from this site again though.
I have both good and bad experience with AliExpress. To be specific, I have both good and bad experience with the Sellers. If I have googled how to spot fake or bad sellers/advertisements, and have read the fine points hidden somewhere in the seller's page, I probably would have avoided that bad experience. I found that the AliExpress Dispute Judgement Team is sided with the Seller (in my case, HeZong Households Store). HeZong shipped me the product that is significantly shorter than the pictures in the ad. I have uploaded all the evidence (ie, pic of the product, transaction screenshot, free shipping screenshot, etc.) And the Judgment Team said my evidence is invalid. My dispute was rejected because I should upload a video of how the product is a defect. I have to create a video to show them that the product is shorter than the seller's advertisement. How am I going to do that?!? HeZong has blatantly misrepresented a product and play "you didn't read the fine print" card. AliExpress is protecting bad sellers like HeZong because they make money from seller's fee. I am not sure whether it's AliExpress or HeZong, my buyer's feedback (with pic of the actual product!) is not displayed on the ad page. That means HeZong can continue to 'lie and trick' buyers with nice photos.
The good sellers sell products that are like the pictures in their ads. If you are willing to pay extra shipping fee (you can select), the products are usually delivered on time. If you like "Free Shipping", then be warned, it might take 2-4 months to get your order.
