Hi all,

I currently import products from the USA and sell through Amazon. I share a great relationship with manufacturer and the model works very well and have no problems.

I am now looking to distribute the goods into China. The model I wanted to use was a wholesale distribution model/ broker model, where the goods are shipped directly from the USA to Chinese retailers, but invoices to china come from my UK based business. The conundrum I have is the commercial invoice.

The value of the commercial invoice should reflect the price paid for the goods. Whilst the USA business has no problem with the model and have authorised me to sell into China, I would prefer to keep profit margins private and of course, I would like to minimise contact between China and the USA.

Does anybody have any experiences or advice for the best way to make this model work?

Chris.
