Clarification on Wiring Money to China Merchant Bank Account

Now Shenzhen   |   September 1, 2021

I recently setup a bank account with China Merchants Bank and am now trying to arrange my first wire transfer from my bank in the United States to CMB. I was given information at their CBD branch I went to which said I can wire directly to their branch, however on their website,…, they designate U.S. intermediary banks as the way to send funds to China. Does anybody have any experience with this?
