Price change history

AliHelper shows a graph of price changes for a product over a certain period. This allows the buyer to determine if the current price is favorable or if the product has already been sold at a lower price. The graph can be viewed both in the product card, under the photo, and in the extension interface in the “Price Changes” section by clicking on the penultimate section with the amount.

If the symbols are red, it means that the price of the product was recently increased, if green – decreased. And if there is a white zero in this place, it means that the price has not changed recently.

Tracking discounts

If you see that the price has been recently increased, but usually the product is cheaper, or you just want to wait for a better offer, in the “Price Changes” section of AliHelper click on the “+ Monitor the price” button.

Checking the reliability of sellers

Another important nuance of shopping on marketplaces is the rating of a particular store from which you plan to order. This is especially relevant now that the current Russian version of the site Aliexpress shows a truncated rating, in addition, the seller can screw it up. By default, you can see it immediately, on the bars in the photos of goods during the search.

Green color marked offers of reliable sellers, orange – those whose work has some shortcomings. And red color marks the goods of stores, to the service and assortment of which there are many questions.

To see a more detailed rating, go to the card of the product you’re interested in and open the “Seller Rate” section in AliHelper.
