Yes 100% Safe Just Like Amazon & Flipkart,  Alibaba is safe regarding payments as it provides Alibaba Trade Assurance

What is Alibaba Trade Assurance?
The Alibaba Trade Assurance may be a payment and buyer protection service meant to feature an additional layer of security when paying suppliers in China. Alibaba acts as a middleman between the customer and therefore the seller. As such, the customer transfers the funds upon placing an order to a delegated Alibaba checking account with the Singapore City Bank. Alibaba then releases the funds once the goods have passed a quality check and been shipped on or before the set deadline.

However, the money is refunded to the buyer if the following occurs:
1. The shipment is delayed, beyond the specified shipping date
2. The manufactured items are not compliant with the provided quality requirements
In a way, the process has some similarities with how a letter of credits functions, but is at the same time very different.

How does Alibaba Trade Assurance protect buyers?
There is no ‘refund’ or “chargeback’ mechanism in place when writing money directly to a supplier’s bank account. Alibaba is bridging that gap by acting as a middleman between the buyer and seller. To secure buyer payments

FCL means full container load. LCL means less container load. They are two common terms used in shipping under international trade business. Besides, FTL (full truck load) and LTL (less truck load) are used in land transportation.FCL is the most optimized container shipping way regarding cost, volume and weight of the goods. The FCL process involves – picking up empty freight container in the container yard, loading at the shipper facility, transporting by truck / rail to the port of loading and further sea / ocean container shipping of the goods to the port of arrival and delivery to final destination. In certain circumstances of sea cargo transportation if you don’t have enough products for a full container load we still recommend you to consider FCL option. You may find FCL compared with LCL (Less than Container Load) to be more efficient, cost-effective, and convenient than other logistics services for you
