Default Paying on AliExpress

I found some cheapo items on Aliexpress that I'd like to get but I see that they don't take paypal. Does anyone here do business with them, if so do you trust them with credit card info or do you use WU? I'm always hesitant tot use WU and I am also pretty reluctant to use my credit card on a foreign site. I considered doing a prepaid Visa but I'm not sure if it will work with foreign transactions, the prepaids are always so hit or miss with what they will or won't work with.
Thoughts? Suggestions?

Credit card is much protection than WU - prepaid however don't have the same protection as your own credit card.

Having never bought from either DHGate or aliexpress i assume it works the same way as it does on ebay or any other website, where your supplier does not see your card info or details only aliexpress would.
It also looks to me like they use an escrow service.

Escrow with Credit card only.
No WU or money gram under ANY circumstances, even when sending the money to aliexpress/baba

No outside transactions with the sellers unless you absolutely trust/know them.

And even then, Use either CC or paypal (Many sellers on there have Paypal and will offer it to you if you ask them and have a few successful transactions with them)

Do not send the paypal as a 'gift' or a virtual payment either.

I buy cutting wheels in bulk off there a couple of times a year.

Depending on the amount, I have spoken to sellers.

They have supplied me with their paypal details.

Used paypal without issues.

I would use CC until you built a good relationship with the vendor. Using western union and money gram can get you banned from using both of them if your sending too much money each month. I was banned from both because they said i was sending to much $$. It has been a nightmare.

Banned for sending too much $$? Sounds like a weird excuse
