Why was the wrong amount deducted from my account?

Please note AliExpress only charge user the value in order confirmation page and no extra money will be received.

If extra money has been deducted from your account, it may due to:
– exchange rate change
– service fee or transaction fee charged by bank
– supportive currency of your card is A, while order pay in currency B may cause more transaction fee. Kindly note every card with supportive currency. Eg: if your card only support transaction in USD while order was paid through RUB. The transaction will be converted for further processing and extra money may be required for every conversion.

If you still have concern about this value, please double check with bank if value difference was caused by above reasons.

Why does it say that my payment cannot be processed because of security reasons?

Your order cannot be processed due to security reasons. Please go to ‘My Order’ page and click ‘My Appeal’ to submit an online appeal. If the appeal is successful, you may try to process your order again. Thank you for your patience.
