Letter of Credit / Stand-by Letter of Credit

This is used in cases where there is no trust between exporter and importer. Therefore, the exporter requires the importer to provide a contingent bank guarantee prior to shipping the goods (in order to ensure payment for these goods). The bank guarantee consists of dozens of conditions which, if fulfilled by the importer, the bank would guarantee the payment. This is the most costly option for foreign trade.
