Abstract

The increasing participation of relatively inexperienced enterprises in international trade calls for a concise and jargon-free, general reference to the many ways by which traders can arrange for payments to be made and the relative merits, of each from a risk standpoint. The most common methods i.e. letters of credit, are covered in some detail including examples.

Keywords: Trade, finance, credit, export, payment, letters of credit
