To create an AliExpress account:

  1. Go to and click Join.

  2. Enter your email address, complete the security test (use the slider, type the letters, and click Submit), and click Next.

  3. Log into your email client, open your account confirmation email, and click Continue.

  4. 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.

Detailed instructions on how to join AliExpress

  1. Go to 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).

  2. First, you will have to enter your email address and verify it.

    Entering your email address and verifying your AliExpress account

    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.

  3. AliExpress will send you an account confirmation email.  Go to your email client, log in, find the email titled "Please Confirm Your Email Address on!", and click it to open it.

    Confirming the email address for your AliExpress account

    Once you have the email open, click the Continue button within it.

  4. Now that you have verified your email address, you need to enter your name and select a password.

    Completing the creation of your AliExpress account

    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 an account!  Our next tutorial will show you step-by-step instructions of how to start shopping!
