The Role of Commercial Banks
The same commercial bank facilities used to finance domestic activities, including revolving lines of credit for working capital, are often sought to finance export sales until payment is received. Bank do not regularly extend financing solely on the basis of an individual order as they prefer to establish an on-going business relationship.
Financing International Trade
Export financing is often a key factor in a successful sale. Contract negotiation and closure are important.
Exports naturally want to get paid as quickly as possible, while importers usually prefer to delay payment until they received or resold the goods. Because of the intense competition for export markets, being able to offer attractive payment terms customary in the trade is often necessary to make sale. Exporter should be aware of the many financing options open to them so that they choose the most acceptable one to both the buyer and seller.
The following are important to consider in making decisions about financing:
The need for financing to make the sale
The length of time the product is being financed
The cost of different methods of financing
The risk associated with financing the transaction
The need for pre-shipment finance and for post shipment working capital
