You cannot pay for purchases on Aliexpress with PayPal today. If there is money on the electronic wallet, then first it will have to be withdrawn to the card. The payment system can be applied if a refund is made from the seller.
One of the most popular ways to pay for goods on AliExpress is to use a credit card. This is due to the ability to quickly make a payment without having to pay for services to intermediaries. Due to the fear that information about the bank account will be in the hands of fraudsters, many refuse this option, preferring payment systems.
One of them is PayPal. The system is convenient for those who make purchases on various trading platforms and sell goods. The popularity of the system is also due to the fact that it is available anywhere in the world. Users have the opportunity to control the balance, monitor the movement of funds.
Before paying for your purchases, go to the PayPal website to register. Any adult user can create their own wallet. After starting the procedure for opening an account, it becomes possible to choose a personal or corporate type. The first option is suitable for individuals.
Fill out the form provided. Passport data must be indicated. This requirement is due to new laws that came into force in 2015. All that remains is to confirm and open an account.
Link your card or top up your account
This option makes it possible to make a payment from the card without disclosing its details to the merchant. It is possible not to tie the plastic, but in this case the information from it will have to be entered every time. Complete all fields, including the security code located on the back.
A feature of the payment system is the ability to make payments without using a card. You can replenish the balance of an electronic wallet using another payment system, ATM or card.
Payment on Aliexpress
Previously, on this marketplace, you could make payments in different ways. Today, in order to protect buyers from fraudulent activities, it will not be possible to pay for purchases through this system. The only option is to withdraw the balances from the electronic account to the card. Choose "Payment by credit card" on Aliexpress. You can also make a payment to the seller's bank account.
The step-by-step payment looks like this:
- on the main page, find "Withdraw funds";
- on the Aliexpress website, select "Use another card" in the "Payment methods" menu;
- fill in the details;
- press the button "Finish", select "Confirm and pay".
Thus, PayPal cannot be used to pay for goods on Aliexpress. The only situation when an invoice comes in handy is when you need to get a refund, for example, for an untimely delivered item. In this case, you will have to create a dispute or agree personally with the seller on the transfer of the required amount.
