Is Alibaba a good choice?

As I'm going to puchase some Chinese handcrafts and clothing and ship them to USA, I know that Alibaba is a wholesale website, but I can order several pieces of a same products, I think it would be cheaper to buy from retailer website. Is Alibaba safe? can I use Paypal on Alibaba?

I have used Aliexpress (the retail arm of Alababa) without problems. They have a buyer protection scheme in operation. As they have their own rival payment system, Alipay, it is unlikely they will accept PayPal. They do accept credit cards.
