Import Documentary Collection

When are Import Documentary Collections used?

Import Documentary Collections cover the buyer against performance risk; the buyer only pays once they have received the goods or service. If agreed with the seller beforehand, there's always the option to pay later after receiving the goods. After the goods are shipped, the Seller presents shipping documents, together with their instructions, to their bank. The Seller's bank then forwards them to the Buyer’s bank to arrange payment. The Buyer’s bank acts on behalf of the Seller's bank to collect the payment from the Buyer. A promise to pay usually involves the Buyer accepting a Bill of Exchange (a document which is signed stating payment will be done immediately, or at a later date). Under the Collection agreement, the Buyer’s bank will not release the shipping documents to the Buyer until they have signed the Bill of Exchange.
