Does anyone have any experience making payments to Alibaba.com?

I'm trying to make an initial payment for some outdoor flooring, but it won't accept any of our credit cards.
I tried to go the T/T or wire transfer route, but I can't quite figure that out through Simplii.
There's an option for global money transfer, but it doesn't recognize the swift code. Also, despite being in Singapore, they're using their Toronto Citibank location as the beneficiary, so I guess it's not really global, but I don't see any domestic transfer options where I'd be filling in a swift code.
Help!

Yes, hundreds of payments. I have only done wire payments though, I don't know what to say about Simplii, I do them through TD and they are very easy to do.
The Toronto Citibank is Alibaba, you are paying to them and then it goes to the supplier.

PM'd you another question, hoping to get this endeavour over the finish line.
