I looked through Amazon and was really dissatisfied with the selections and reviews. I figured most of them were dropshipped from aliexpress anyways, so I went direct. Then I went through and found a seller that had been open a long time and had good reviews. I heard that was key, always find a seller open at least 2 years.
My press came with 2 year warranty and lifetime tech support. I also contacted the seller and they told me if something was wrong with it, since it would cost so much to ship back, they would just send me another one or refund me. So on top of that and Aliexpress’s refund policy, I felt that I was at a minimal risk.
I opted for free shipping, which is the slowest and could take up to 3 months with no tracking. But not only did the seller send me tracking info for it while it was in China, but they said once it gets to the US, I would be issued a UPS tracking number. So I tracked it through China, then got worried because I got no update.
But the day I got a tracking number for UPS, it was already at my door. From payment to receiving it, was just shy of 30 days. I actually got it quicker than something I ordered that was supposed to only be a few miles away.
