About AliExpress Program

AliExpress is an online marketplace created by Alibaba.com. On AliExpress, buyers from more than 200 countries and regions order items in bulk or one at a time — all at low wholesale prices. It now features more than One hundred million products supplied by more than 200,000 exporters and manufacturers.
With its triumphant $21.8 billion initial public offering (IPO), Alibaba has eclipsed Amazon as the largest and most valuable eCommerce company in the world. In fact, based on the first day of trading, Alibaba is more valuable than Amazon and eBay combined.

AliExpress operates as an “open marketplace” connecting buyers and sellers. It does not sell anything directly and does not own any warehouses. As a result, AliExpress is vastly more profitable than Amazon.
AliExpress affiliate cookie’s lifespan is 30 days. This is much longer than Amazon’s, which is valid for only 24 hours.

Besides, AliExpress sells all over the world even in little rural places where Amazon or eBay are unable to enter.
