so I came across this article about doing business with a chinese company. http://www.chinalawblog.com/2012/05/providing-service-to-chinese-companies-get-paid-upfront-or-dont-bother.html

will you be working in China or here in the US and communicate via phone and email? I need that information to see if there are any export/import implications.
