Although it can be exciting when companies overseas want to stock your products, it can also put fear into business owners, who often worry about not getting paid. The best way to go about this process is to trade on letter of credit, as this is guaranteed to give you a higher level of payment security. It can be difficult to produce a letter of credit which is legally compliant, so you may want to seek help from a third party company. Many financing companies have agents which are experienced in producing these letters, who can liaise with the overseas business on your behalf, ensuring that both their needs, and your business needs are met. The finance company will also produce shipping documents which need to be presented to a bank prior to payment. Working with a third party company will allow you to concentrate on selling your products, and finding more companies to trade with.
