Answer
Dear Kamruz,

Below is the safe payment methods:

1. for small orders, you can use PayPal
2. for large orders, you can use L/C payment

both of above are using the third party to ensure safe payment.

or you need meet the supplier pay and get the goods face to face.

Or work like below:
Pay 10% to 30% deposit to ask the supplier start production, and ship the goods to you, then while the goods arrived your local port, you pay the balance and they release the goods to you.
