  • A Letter of Credit is a type of bank guarantee assuring the payment of the goods provided in the case that the terms mutually agreed upon by the buyer and the seller who are engaged in international trade, and international trade rules are not complied with.
  • Doing business in a foreign country in different market conditions with a company you don't know bears risks. Sellers want to collect the payment of the goods sold, and buyers want to receive the goods specified in the agreement on time. A commercial letter of credit provides the highest level of trust for both of the trading parties.
  • Since the bank will not make any payments to the seller who fails to fulfill the terms of the commercial letter of credit, it creates a trustful environment for the buyer. And since the payment will only be made upon the submission of the documents specified in the commercial letter of credit to the bank, it provides financing convenience for the buyer.
