Shopping at an online store usually looks like this: you order an item, pay for it, and receive a confirmation, and order details to your e-mail. Are you waiting for confirmation from AliExpress? Then we will disappoint you - AliExpress does not send invoices or receipts. You will receive an e-mail confirmation only when the order is executed, paid, sent, etc.
AliExpress regular customers don't really need order invoices. They are needed especially for small businesses, which deal with dropshipping from AliExpress. If you order a lot, you may need support papers for administrative purposes or to indicate their name on the order details.
You may need to ask the customs authorities for an invoice if they have any doubts and need to prove the price of the product, as in most countries there are restrictions on price, weight and package size. If you exceed them, you will be asked to pay VAT and / or some additional taxes.
If you are asked to prove the price of the goods, generate an invoice containing the actual price of the product and contact customs officer or post office (depending on the country) to solve the problem. Remember to make an account statement to show that the amount on the invoice matches the amount you actually paid for the order.
There are 2 ways to get an invoice from AliExpress. Request an invoice from the store or go to your device install the invoice generation program / extension. We have to say that there is little chance that you trade sends an invoice because they only deal with shipping papers. There is also no possibility to issue an invoice on AliExpress, because it is the seller who bears all the responsibility, so the Alibaba group does not provide proof of payment or invoice.
