However, communication by postal mail has limitations. The response time can be long and it is not ideal for urgent inquiries.

For more immediate responses, opt for live chat, social media, or the online help center.

These methods are faster and often more effective for resolving common user issues.

How to Contact AliExpress by Phone?

To reach AliExpress by phone, you must use the Alibaba group’s number: (+86) 571-8502-2088.

This is the main line available for questions related to AliExpress, although the site itself does not offer a direct number for customer service.

However, using the phone to contact AliExpress may prove less effective. First, waiting times can be long, especially during peaks in demand.

Moreover, the language barrier can complicate communication, as operators may not speak French fluently.

For quicker and more accurate responses, consider online options such as live chat or the help center.

These methods provide assistance at any hour, without the constraints of a phone call.

How to Contact Aliexpress on Social Media?

AliExpress maintains an active presence on several social networks, including Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Twitter.

Contacting customer service via private messaging has several advantages. It allows you to document your interaction, which is useful in case of a prolonged dispute.

Furthermore, responses are often quicker compared to emails, especially if you contact during business hours.
