The application has been translated into many different languages and accepts payments in different currencies, including euros. With regard to the delivery of the products, it offers different systems, being its standard shipping the cheapest method as it's free.

Which one is better? AliExpress or Dealextreme? Or maybe Wish or eBay? What about Amazon?

All these stores sell cheap products, although not all of them have the best reputation. The truth is that Chinese stores of the likes of AliExpress or Dealextreme can be a hassle when it comes to returns and refunds. On the contrary, American stores such as Amazon or Wish offer us better coverage with more support for the customer.
