This sounds dangerously close to the typical (and old) "Nigerian scam".
What sort of due diligence have you done? You realize that this transaction may be illegal (bypassing international trade restrictions?).
You should consider contacting an attorney before giving anyone any kind of account or personal information.

BE CAREFUL. Talk to your Lawyer and your Accountant before you transfer funds.
I would suggest you look into letter of credit. Letter of credit guard against the fears you state here. With a letter of credit - the underwriter will ensure that 1) you get paid and 2) that the goods are shipped. They will ensure that, if you ship, you will get paid as they will either hold the funds from your customer or provide them credit to ensure payment. Thus, you don't have to give your account information to customers.

Hi, I have some money transfer questions needed your expert suggestions.I am just hired by a foreign company to do product pruchase in USA and then ship to them. They will first send money to my account and then I buy the goods. I take commission of certain percent. I am wondering should I ask them to put money into my credit card account or send money to my bank checking account (with rolling number. and account number). I have two concerns (1) even if I see the money input to my account and I use the money to buy the goods and ship to them, but they reverse (or withdraw) back their money from my account afterward. Then the purchase and shipping will be paid by my money. (2) they take my money from my account in the future if I tell them my card number or checking account number. If there is a good way that the money can only be collected, but it can not taken back without my permission. Please give your advice. Thanks in advance.
