My complaint:

In August 5th, before ordering a power station (large battery) via AliExpress I have contacted the selling company and ask them if they can shipped to Cyprus, since is battery and is not easy to ship large batteries via air mail (since Cyprus is an island). I got twice the ation in written that seller can ship to Cyprus. After my order and after waiting for 5 days seller told me that can’t shipped to Cyprus and to ask for refund. Something i did. In Ali Express web site they claim refund will happen in 20 days max and it is almost two months now and i only got emails to wait. Today i got another email from Ali Express to wait for 7-14 days because they do have a technical problem. I have opened several tickets with them and simply they never solve the problem, just sending me emails to wait and thank you for buying with us. I have the emails and all documentation to support my case.

I am at your disposal if you additionally need more documentation on this case.

Bellow is a ticket chat back in August (check the case ID reported)

lets hope case will be solved

Suggested solution:

They reply to tickets but they don\'t refund the amount that I was advised by seller to proceed with refund because he couldn\'t ship, but initially advised that can ship to me.
I just need my refund since seller never shipped my order and cheated by ing he will ship to me my order.
