I've tried looking, but I can’t seem to find a clear answer on using buffalo for Aliexpress. The Aliexpress shipping option I always used to use is no longer available and the items I’m looking for aren’t available via Banggood. Is there a way to use Buffalo (or even AGS) to get more reasonable shopping costs from Aliexpress? Thanks!

I have used AGS before I choose aliexpress standard shipping to AGS Hong Kong but it took a too long plus multiple failed delivery attempts that AGS couldn't help with. Finally once it was delivered at AGS It took a week n half to my get to my door.

I wonder how fast are e-packets to new York maybe one can opt for new York instead of Hong Kong

You could try to ask Buffalo. It should be possible to get the Aliexpress seller to deliver the parcel to any address in China. Buffalo has a warehouse in Shenzhen and offices in Shanghai. You just need to get Buffalo to forward the parcel to you in SA.

You can use ShopShipShake to forward Aliexpress or any other Chinese parcels to Buffalo Express.
You can also combine multiple parcels which AGS doesn't support,
So buying from 2 different Aliexpress vendors, you only pay for shipping once.

You can always try the Sellers on Aliexpress that offer the shipping method below

Contact the Seller and ask them if they ship via Yanwen by default it will end up with Buffalo.
Yanwen will collect then they hand it over to Lastmile who in turn hand it over to Buffalo.

Ordered a router from Banggood recently. Took about a week to get to Buffalo SA from China and another week until it was ready for collection at PEP. Didn't expect it to be delivered to a PEP as they normally deliver straight to my door. However not too bad considering the waiting times I'm used to with Gearbest and AliExpress.

Do you know if Yanwen Express always hands off to Buffalo? I saw the option of “Yanwen Express” pop up on SUNSKY as well and they’re much cheaper than Aramex, DHL.
