I once bought 300 iphone 7 cases from Alibaba, they were really cheap there ... I would say you should start looking for internet´s guides on how to shop on Alibaba. You have to be really careful when selecting a seller. And you have to have in mind that there are a lot of fakes products being sold on Alibaba. For example, before paying anything I had the seller send me a picture of the phone cases with my name on it and the date and time to make sure they were a real company :/
There are a lot of tips you can find on google. Just google search it.
Best of luck!

I'd like to share a guide that we've put together that covers the basics of sourcing a product from Alibaba which should answer a lot of the questions you have right now. It covers best practices when contacting, verifying, and negotiating with sellers through Alibaba. You can find that guide HERE.
All the best!
