Pay your attention!

  • Since 1 July 2021, the EU (European Union) began to apply new VAT (tax) rules in e-commerce. Details here. The tax does not affect the commission. Commission is still charged only on the cost of goods (excluding VAT).
  • If an affiliate link leads to a product whose page is not available or to a product from a store that does not participate in the affiliate program, AliExpress may automatically redirect the referral to a similar product from a seller participating in the AliExpress affiliate program.
  • When creating affiliate links on AliExpress, use only direct links such as https://www.aliexpress.com, etc. If you use a link in the format http://s.click.aliexpress.com, commission may not be included.
  • The commission is always “cut off” to downwards by AliExpress. This is especially evident on orders with small amounts. Such bias of 1-2 cents in this situation is normal. This is the result of rounding at different stages of the movement of money.
  • AliExpress can reject orders on its side if the buyer applied one of AliExpress coupons (Special Coupon, Coupon from Seller, Coupon for a new customer, etc.) or coins when placing an order.
  • If the buyer uses the plugin "AliExpress Assistant - Online Shopping", then the order may be interrupted and, accordingly, no commission will be charged.
  • Order numbers in the buyer's personal account on AliExpress and ePN statistics may be different.
  • For goods with express delivery from the "Yes!" no commission is charged in the AliExpress mobile application.
  • Commission is charged on the cost of goods excluding shipping costs and is no more than $ 38.5 per order. In case of opening a dispute on the order, the amount of the commission on it will be deducted from your balance.
  • AliExpress does not guarantee that orders will be tracked if using the affiliate links that are created on the following main pages: www.aliexpress.ru or www.aliexpress.com If you want to direct traffic to the home page, then you should use https://best.aliexpress.ru or https://best.aliexpress.com Tracking orders from any other AliExpress pages (products, categories, sales landing pages, etc.) works correctly
