I've ordered from them a few times. Got the packages as expected.

I put my home address and in Address line 2 I put the PO box and my mobile phone number. You also have to input the Postal Code.

They take a while to be delivered. From my experience anywhere between 3 weeks to a month.

depend on your shipping method

TnT / Aramex / DHL
less than a week

China mail
20-30 days , and if its a big box you will need to pick it up at a parcel center ( the one in hatteen )

Took me minimum 60 days for all shipments. Some shipments I never received and some I received. So now I have stopped buying from them. The problem is that my local post office had to call me and inform that the package is there and then I would go and collect it (9am to 12 noon only). If they dont call, I dont get the package. I ordered mostly clothes  and few home accessories like a vase or some stationery etc. Lot of interesting stuff on their site, but now my heart is broken as I did not get a lot of my stuff :-(

I've ordered about 100 shipments from them and received about 90-95% of them, probably due to the fault only of the local postal service. Lots of junk on there, but also lots of decent quality items. You have to shift through and know how to shop to find the sellers selling high quality items. My favorite shops sell titanium wares and titanium jewelry.

The only thing is that shipping takes about 4-8 weeks. I usually forgot what I've purchased before it arrives. I've never had to pay customs fees, however.

I used to order a lot of green tea but they are no longer allowing the sale of food stuffs at the turn of the year.

Actually this is my first time dealing with Aliexpress and will be the last time because of the shipping service!!! In 10 days my purchase protection is going to end and I want my money back . I can say it was a very bad and disappointing experience.
