Whether the transmission is direct (with no intermediaries involved) or indirect. If indirect distribution strategy is implemented, it is important to choose the number of intermediaries (wholesalers, distributors, etc.) whether they are involved in: conventional brick and mortar distribution network, online distribution or a combination of both. Many online retailers such as Amazon will be eligible.
