Aliexpress - Washington State won't let residents shop globally. (Coincidence perhaps that AMAZON is here??)
In response to the thousands of angry Washington residents who find this site, load up a cart then at checkout find they are the ONLY US state blocked from these savings and amazing deals...
That IS NOT Aliexpress doing.
The State of Washington, unlike the other 49, wants a special State license, State tax, State escrow...above and beyond everything else they already pay Federally. Every other state has been enjoying the savings both in personal use and even more in reselling! On Amazon, Ebay, Craigslist, etc...the other 49 states sellers are making bigger profits than Washington residents ever could because of the state blocking ecommerce sites like this.
I have heard of ways to get around this. Put in your address BUT use a different state. When you make your order, in the message line, write that you made a mistake and need the 'state, province' corrected from _____________ (Oregon, Idaho, etc...) to Washington.
Computer savvy people are using HTML code to add 'USA' as a state and then for the city writing, (Seattle, WA) (Mukilteo, WA).
If you know anyone out of state, you can have everything shipped to them then they can ship to you.
It sucks that 49 states benefit from the high US dollar value in the global market BUT (ironic that Amazon is in Washington State....) Washington won't allow it's residents the global shopping power.
CERTAINLY NOT putting the residents FIRST.
Hope this helps!
Reviewer is in unhappy mood. This person is quite happy with low prices and product. Please immediately contact the author of this review to discuss "my state won't allow aliexpress and hundreds of thousands of consumers are losing out!! please add usa to the drop down list of states on your address page!!!" of aliexpress ecommerce platform. Aliexpress needs to offer any options to resolve the issue according to poster's claims.
