Advice for importing

Sep 15, 2021
Hi guys I am a newbie and wanted to know if the verified symbol in Alibaba (the two hands shaking) means if that the supplier is legit or not?

as we all know being a gold supplier doesn't really mean much as it is a paid membership for suppliers. my supplier with a product I extremely want to be part of my business venture and I am so new to this I could be scammed so easily but I am trying to do my due- diligence here so please help lol.

the supplier is from Pakistan and they only use MoneyGram and WesternUnion as payment options so that's why I am a bit weary. I am sure not all are scammers but most are. so any thoughts?
