Dispute Process

After submitting the Open Dispute form, the supplier has 15 days to respond and try to reach an agreement with the buyer. If the supplier doesn`t reply till 15 days, the dispute will be automatically escalated to Aliexpress Dispute Team. If you don`t agree with supplier solution or supplier doesn`t answer to your message, you don`t have wait 15 days. Buyer is allowed to Escalate dispute before 15 days, but minimum after 3 days. If the seller approves your solution, and the dispute is closed and the money will be automatically refunded to your account.


Modify Dispute

During the waiting for reply there might be new evidence about your package. For example watches stops working. There is possibility to Modify Dispute. In Refund and Disputes find your order and click on View Detail. By clicking on Modify Dispute you can edit your dispute, add photos etc.

Cancel dispute

Never Cancel dispute before getting money or package back. It can happen that the package didn`t arrive in Delivery Time. Package can be delayed for 2 days and by fair play you should Cancel Dispute and confirm receipt of your order in case you are satisfied with it. But once you close your dispute there is no chance to claim anything again back. Before you cancelling dispute make sure that your order is in perfect condition. Sometimes the seller will propose a discount on your next purchase in the form of a coupon or payment to Paypal account. Be careful, because once you close the dispute and the seller might not send you any money, so I do not have any opportunity to escalate the dispute anymore.
