Export collection

Use export collection in shipments by sea to secure the payment after the shipment.

A method of payment where banks forward documents

Use collection when you want your customer to pay the collection amount or accept a draft with a term of payment before the goods are surrendered to your customer. When you use export collection, both the commercial and the political risk still remain with the seller.
