Hi I cannot find Yoga equipment at a reasonable price to sell, until I found this supplier in Alibaba.com

Their website is Link hidden: Login to view

They look legit but I have read too many horror stories at Alibaba.com, any advice on how to go about it?
I sent them an email to see what payments are accepted, haven't got reply yet

If they accept Paypal, does that mean I will be protected? (Sorry I am a rookie)

Here are some tips published in the SaleHoo blog regarding Alibaba Link hidden: Login to view and I copy paste -

...we believe Alibaba can be a great place to make direct contact with manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world – but you have to be prepared to carry out some thorough background research of your own first:

Visit the Alibaba forums and search for feedback about the supplier
Check the supplier’s contact details and give them a call
Spend a while asking lots of questions and chatting before placing an order
Ask for a sample at first, and then place only a small initial order. If they turn out to be fraudulent, you won’t have lost too much.

And the golden rule: Never spend more than you can afford to lose on an order with an untested Alibaba supplier. If you’re down to your last $200, Alibaba isn't the place for you. Instead, start with a local, guaranteed trustworthy supplier until you reach a more stable position.
