    I intend to start a dropshipping business, sourcing on Aliexpress. However Aliexpress no longer allows the use of Paypal and I am not keen on giving my debit card details to Alipay, their own escrow service. I am wondering whether a prepaid credit card could be the way to go as if i do get scammed then this limits action to the funds on this card rather than my bank details ? .

    Why not just use your own credit card so you get the same level of protection offered but with more convenience?

    This would obviously be the best move, however i have never really done anything using credit cards and i am self employed and rent my property thereby having no credit history to speak of so getting an actual credit card is difficult.

    You may be able to start off with one of those credit builder credit cards and work up then you're protected under section 75 for payments over £100, but if doing that be sure to pay in full every month so as to not let the interest eat into your profit!

    I don't really use Aliexpress but have used Alipay on Alibaba with my business debit card a few times in the past without issue, however I don't know how good they are if an issue does arise.
