Export letter of credit

International transaction, that is a written commitment to pay, by the bank (issuing bank), on behalf of the purchaser, to the seller the value of goods, by presenting goods shipment documents, in strict accordance with terms and conditions stipulated in the letter of credit. Letter of credit is the most complex and efficient modality of payment protection during import/export operations.

Advantages for importer:

Letter of credit insures that the payment will be made only upon presentation of documents confirming shipment of the goods, in accordance with all conditions specified in the Letter of Credit.

At the demand of clients, Moldindconbank issues letters of credit, confirmed by leading international banks, in order to reduce commercial risks, risk of insolvency of issuing bank as well as country risks

Advantages for exporter:

  • Certainty that the payment will be made only upon presentation of the documents, in accordance with all conditions specified in the Letter of Credit..

Documentary collection

Collection, through a bank, of money owned by importer in exchange of shipping documents presented by the exporter. Compared to Letter of credit, documentary collection is simpler, cheaper, but makes no guarantee. It is based on purchaser payment obligation, provided by international commercial contract. The banks involved have no commitment. Bank acts as an intermediary between importer and exporter, hands over shipping documents – at exporter’s order – to the importer in exchange for cash payments.

Documentary collection is a process in which the exporter fulfils his commitments (shipment of goods) before receiving a payment commitment from the importer (without getting insured beforehand that the payment will be done).

This tool can be used only in case:

  • long-term stable business relationship between the parties
  • the seller has no doubts about the buyer's ability to meet its payment obligations,
  • the political and economical situation in the buyer's country is stable.
