Before you start shopping (or doing much of anything, for that matter) on AliExpress, you're going to need to sign up for an account. This tutorial will walk you through getting one set up.
Go to www.aliexpress.com and click Join.
Enter your email address, complete the security test (use the slider, type the letters, and click Submit), and click Next.
Log into your email client, open your account confirmation email, and click Continue.
Enter your name, select a password, and click Confirm.
Now, for those of you who want to see how it's actually done, below are full instructions with screenshot images to help guide you.
Go to www.aliexpress.com in your web browser. Above "My AliExpress" on the right-hand side, click Join (or click Join Free in the drop-down menu that appears).
First, you will have to enter your email address and verify it.
Click in the box labelled "Email" and type in your email address. Then, where it says "Verification", click and hold the mouse button down on the slider on the left, and then move your mouse to the right until a new box appears. Click inside the text box there and type the distorted text that you see, and then click Submit. Finally, click Next.
AliExpress will send you an account confirmation email. Go to your email client, log in, find the email from AliExpress titled "Please Confirm Your Email Address on AliExpress.com!", and click it to open it.
Once you have the email open, click the Continue button within it.
Now that you have verified your email address, you need to enter your name and select a password.
Click in each of the boxes highlighted in the screenshot above and type in:
- A password to protect your account with
- A copy of the password that you chose
- Your first name
- Your last name
Once you have all four boxes filled in, click Confirm.
You should be redirected to the AliExpress home page. Congratulations on signing up for AliExpress! Now, are you ready to start shopping?
