Why is AliExpress so cheap?

A lot of people wonder why the products are so cheap at AliExpress. Unfortunately, most of them assume that the quality is not good, which is incorrect. There are two significant possibilities for this.

First, you can find manufacturers who can sell directly to you. This results in reduced prices. Second, the cost incurred for manufacturing in China is lower.

Another possibility is that the product could be a replica or of low quality. Such products are good and work fine, but they aren’t the original ones.

On AliExpress, a major chunk of merchants are based in China. Thus their products are sourced from local Chinese manufacturers. That is why their products cost less, and they offer cheap to no shipping.
