The Company will recognize revenue from these contracts as the sales agents sell the products and services to third parties.

As of December 31 and June 30, 2019, the Company recorded $1,300,638 and $1,318,897 of advances from the sales agents, respectively.

Selling expenses were $109,321 and $148,852 for the six months December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The decrease in selling expenses was primarily attributed to a decrease in salary expenses.
