Amazon vs. AliExpress

Amazon and AliExpress are two mega online marketplaces for direct-to-consumer goods catering to the global market. While prices are generally cheaper on AliExpress, product quality and sellers may be less reliable and shipping times are long, whereas on Amazon you pay higher prices for greater ease of communication with sellers and significantly faster delivery times. Who you choose to use will likely depend on this tradeoff.
