In February 2017, this requirement was introduced only for postal items worth over $ 2, now it acts on all goods, regardless of their cost. Russia has become one of the first countries where AliExpress introduced a mandatory tracking of all parcels.
The tracking system is based on the platform «Tsaynyao», which is part of Alibaba Group and provides logistics services to all its sites, including AliExpress in Russia. The press service of AliExpress Russia told RIA Novosti that they did not expect price growth due to the innovation, since the transition to compulsory marking was discussed for a long period, and the sellers had enough time to prepare for this. «In addition, the launch of the project is no less important for sellers, as it avoids consumer extremism in services and delivery — each side can track the process in detail at any time», — The representative of AliExpress noted.
