Export Collection: Collapsed

This provides you with a more secure payment for your exports. You can gain reassurance of payment and use the banking system to maintain control over your goods with Export Collections.

Import Collection: Collapsed

This is safer than paying for your goods in advance since you make a payment only when you receive evidence of the shipment, protecting against the risk of non-performance of your supplier.
