Features and benefits

A cost-effective and secure way to trade internationally

A simpler alternative to Documentary Credits (DCs)

Suppliers are paid as soon as your account is debited with no hidden interest or payment delays

Enables you to receive goods before payment

Reduces payment risk for your supplier at minimal cost to you

Eliminates the need for credit facilities if no bank finance is required on payment

Gives you access to goods without delay

How it works

Having shipped the goods, your supplier presents the necessary documents, together with their instructions, to their bank. Their bank forwards the documents to your bank for payment. With a Documentary Collection against payment (D/P), import documents are released to you on payment. With a Documentary Collection against acceptance (D/A), the documents are released to you against your promise to pay.

Reminder: "To borrow or not to borrow? Borrow only if you can repay!"
