  • Good Move, hopefully their entry to Pakistani market would not be like other Chinese e-commerce companies like Cheezmall, which is totally fraud

  • Someone please define “investment”?

    Will it result in cash in-flow or do they want more of Pakistani market (that will result in cash out-flow) ?

  • I Like aliexpress it always deliver their products…better if they open their warehouse in Pakistan so it will cut the delivery time as well as cost.
