In case you need the mobile version of Aliexpress, use this link:
Settings: Full desktop version of Aliexpress on mobile
In case you have Aliexpress app installed on your mobile device (cell phone or tablet), any links to the full version of the website may open in the app automatically.
To prevent that from happening, you need to EITHER delete the Aliexpress app OR set up your phone so that it opens the links in the browser.
How do you set up your phone to automatically open Aliexpress links in the browser? Here’s an algorithm you’ll need to follow.
In case you have installed the app and opened a link to the Aliexpress website at least once, during that FIRST TIME the phone MAY ask which app you would like to use to open the link: your web browser (that will take you to the full version) or the Aliexpress app.
In case you have saved the setting that opens links in the app, you will need to CHANGE that setting to open links in the full version of Aliexpress instead.
How do I change supported links settings?
To achieve that you will need to open the SETTINGS of your phone or tablet, go to APPS and find Aliexpress app in the list.
After you do that, you will need to go to the app settings and CHANGE DEFAULT SETTINGS for the app to open Aliexpress browser version when you click on an Aliexpress link.
Different phones may have different interfaces, but the algorithm will remain the same.
How do I open full version of Aliexpress instead of mobile?
Aliexpress may detect that you’re accessing it from a MOBILE browser and automatically redirect you to its mobile version. To open the FULL DESKTOP version on your phone or tablet, you’ll need to do the following.
Open browser settings (we are using Google Chrome as an example, please note that other browsers might not have this option) and tick off the Desktop site box.
Please keep in mind that desktop version may look very small on your mobile. However, this should not be an issue on a tablet. At times, you need to use the desktop version as it has a lot more functions.
How do I change the website’s language?
Sometimes Aliexpress may falsely detect which country you are accessing it from (if you’re using VPN, for example) and show its contents in a foreign language.
Changing the language is very simple. In the top right corner of the website, you will need to choose your country and the currency that is most convenient for you.
