Hello. What I see is basically a business question rather than a legal one. The structure you describe resembles a manufacturer's representative, rather than an importer or wholesaler. The difficulty is that the Chinese manufacturer (M) will be shipping to you, ABC, And then billing the ultimate buyer X. This will require a contract between ABC and M . All X has to do is agree to submit their payment directly to M, based on M's invoice to them. The danger that I see for ABC is that eventually X will start dealing directly with M and bypass ABC. I hope I understand your question and that this information has been helpful. If so, a positive rating would be appreciated and there is no additional charge for that.
