      Direct shipping is a good option but it involves many risks. Your manufacturer could end up freighting the product directly to the distributors. This option might seem very simple but the supplier and distributor might not need you anymore. In this case you’ll lose money.

      I would recommend using an agent. All you have to do is to find someone in China and hire him. This agent will act for you. The products will be sent to the agent and then to the distributors. Your only task is to prescribe the quantities.

      You can find plenty agents from China. Do an online research and choose a reliable person or company. Make sure you can always get in touch with your agent. If possible, try a face to face meeting before hiring an agent. Ask other people to recommend a reliable agent. For this, you can check out various forums and discussion boards. Choosing the right agent is very important for your business.

      Why not ship the goods if you trust your supplier enough? This may be cheaper. Check your supplier carefully.
      Good luck!

      You could check your agent details before your order... once your sample/trial order completed, congrats, you got a reliable agent then!!
      Good luck
