AliExpress App Now Shows Prices in Pakistani Rupees

If you shop online regularly, chances are you might have ordered something from AliExpress at some point. The online store contains a ton of stuff from all sorts of categories for you to order.

The only problem with AliExpress was that it showed prices in US Dollars. You were supposed to convert the prices to Pakistani Rupees manually via a calculator or through Google search. Not anymore.

Only on Android for Now

The updated AliExpress app on the Google Playstore can let you view product prices in PKR or Pakistani Rupees. Although it is a quality of life update, it will save you the hassle of constantly having to switch tabs to convert prices on a laptop/pc or to switch to a calculator on your phone.

Unfortunately the update is limited to Google Playstore only with no word of when this update will hit iOS.

How to Turn on PKR Prices

To use this option on the AliExpress app, tap on the hamburger icon on the top left corner inside the app.

Scroll down and tap on settings.

Here you can tap on “Currency” and choose PKR to display prices in Pakistani Rupees.

            Sales Tax : 17% (For Commercial add 3% More)

            1% Plus 1% Landing & Insurance Charges will be added in your actual invoice value.
            Other than cost like, Custom Clearance charges you will pay your agent who will cleared your consignment from customs like. DHL, FedEx, & any others lum sum 1000 to 5000 &.

                  Whats app No hai for more detail

    • Hamid

      You need NOC from PTA to ship mobile phone. So the hassle might not be worth it.

      • No need for NOC :
        In case of new brand which was not presented in Pakistan then you need NOC before shipping the goods for Pakistan & PTA demand complete documents including specification chart, brand details & supplier details to arrange NOC but new brand is not allowed in Pakistan agar PTA ne khud usy allow na kiya ho as Xiaomi Mobiles jo ab allow howa

    • SSyar

      you could get lucky., if they(pak post officials) didnt notice whats in the parcel/packet., and you wont have to pay any :D

    Worth trying http://www.rupeeco.pk, Pakistan’s first cashback website which offers cashback on AliExpress purchase. https://propakistani.pk/2016/12/13/buy-aliexpress-without-credit-debit-card-guide-pakistanis/

  • Not only that, It is going to save you 3.5% currency conversion charges applied by statebank for online card transactions.. which is a big deal, a real advantage of this.

    • Guest

      It’s not like that, when you pay you’ll still be paying in USD, PKR amount is just for reference you’ll always be charged more than PKR displayed.

      • DJ

        yeah right so in short no difference all remain same still USD will be around 113 PKR

    • Faheem Asghar

      Not By SBP but by Banks.
