Changes to cash back accrual on 1 October 2022.
As of 1 October 2022, cash back is no longer available for non-affiliated items for all countries. You can check the product for affiliation on the page.
The conditions regarding the division of countries are also maintained for affiliated goods. That means that cash back activation and product delivery must take place within the same country group. In this case, the cash back will be credited.
There are 2 groups of countries for this division. The first group includes: Armenia Azerbaijan Belarus Georgia Kazakhstan Kyrgyzstan Moldova Russia Tajikistan Turkmenistan Uzbekistan. The second group includes countries that did not make it into the first group.
AliExpess will determine the location by IP address and the address given in the order. Therefore, if the IP address is not defined at all, there will also be no accrual.

Changes in cash back accrual for non-affiliated goods from the 25th of September 2020.
On the AliExpress marketplace, products are divided into two groups: affiliate and non-affiliate.
To get cash back, you need to choose affiliate ones. These are the goods for which the cash back service receives a commission from the seller. In this case, the seller himself sets the size of the commission.
The situation with unaffiliated goods differs from country to country, but the conditions of getting a cash back are less tempting.
A list of exceptions is common for users in any country. These are the stores for which no cash back will be credited.The list of stores is changing all the time and available at the link.
However, sometimes there are other goods in stores for which users from other countries do not get cash back. There is no way to identify these goods in advance.
Information for Russian users: there are local unaffiliated stores where the goods are delivered from a warehouse located in Russia. Such stores are listed on AliExpress along with Chinese stores.
Cash back for their goods appears in "My Cash Back" with a big delay — up to 90 days after an order confirmation on AliExpress.
If you open a dispute or request a refund on such an order, the information about the cash back will not appear in "My Cash Back" at all.

For non-affiliated products, cash back is not credited, as before. But for affiliate products, cash back amount will now be set by sellers from AliExpress. It will no longer depend on the product category and its percentage may vary from 0.28% to 57.5%.

Changes in cashback crediting for non-affiliated products on December 17, 2019.
There is a special group of products on the AliExpress trading platform called non-affiliated or non-partnering. Initially, cash back services did not receive a commission from the seller for these products, and users did not receive cash back.
The situation changed in October 2017: AliExpress included this type of product in the cash back program. However, the percentage for them was lower and equated to the cash back category for the category "Mobile devices".
On October 10, 2018, the conditions were changed for the better and the category of non-affiliated products was removed, and AliExpress began to send cash back for it from its own funds.
A few hours ago, information was received from our partners that very soon the conditions will change again. On December 17, 2019, from 10:00 Moscow time, AliExpress stops calculating cash back for non-affiliated products.
This will happen not for all users, but for a number of countries: Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Moldova.
While we are working on restoring a non-affiliation determination tool, we offer to make purchases through the page: best.aliexpress.com. If rules for receiving cash back are followed, cash back will be credited since all products are affiliate.
