The above two have offered good advice
The question I ask is do you have the funds??
You will need to set up LC (letters of credit), insure your stock, pay for transporting, pay taxes (3 -6 weeks). You will then to store and maintain an office/storeroom paying rent. Pay delivery to clients, then wait 90 -120 days for payment. Meanwhile you have received more orders more outlay/risk on the way.
Under capitalising no good this is why so many fail.

I went to China 4ys ago…you will need to buy container loads with excellent marketing plans.
