You pass us shipping documents proving that you’ve shipped the goods. We forward these documents, along with your payment instructions, to the buyer’s bank overseas. These documents are only released to the buyer when your payment terms and conditions are met.
At the buyer's end
The shipping documents are only released to the buyer when your payment terms and conditions are met. You can specify you want payment “at sight” which is immediately, or “term” which is when you agree to take payment at a specified later date. Once you’ve released the shipping documents to the buyer, they can then use them to collect their goods from the port.
