Check your emails

By AliExpress you receive emails alerting you of the upcoming end of the period for delivering the goods. It should be 5 days and then 2 days before the end of the period. If you have not responded to these emails by extending the purchase protection or opening the dispute. The extension of the period for delivery can be requested at any time during the countdown, but you`ll do it probably when you get notification email from Aliexpress. We would recommend this e-mail not to ignore, but in time to immediately extend. Although you can see that the package is on your post office. Seller has 48 hours for extension your period. But if you are informed 2 days before delivery time we really recommend to you open a dispute.
