The documentary credit form of payments

Documentary credit (letter of credit) stands for money obligation of the Bank, accepted on the basis of the client- buyer's order, to make payment for seller against representing by him [seller] documents, which were stipulated by conditions of the letter of credit. Using different designs of the documentary letters of credit in payments among themselves, buyers and sellers have an opportunity to reduce risks related with a party of contract to a minimum.

Payments by collection orders

Documentary collection order implies that a seller receives through a bank the due amount against delivering by it [bank] seller's documents to a buyer. In comparison with direct bank transfer documentary collection order is much more secure, because it doesn't allow a buyer to receive in possession order and covering documents on goods, and as a consequence, a buyer won't have any opportunity to get goods, not paying for them.

Bank guarantees

Bank guarantee is an obligation of a guarantor-bank, granted on the order and at the expense of a client (PRINCIPAL), to pay to a bank guarantee recipient (BENEFICIARY) an amount of money, stipulated by the obligation under a contract between the Principal and Beneficiary, after presenting by Beneficiary the written order for payment, and, perhaps, additional documents, specified in a bank guarantee and appropriate to its conditions.

In contrast to documentary credit and documentary collection, bank guarantee is the tool of securing obligations performance, by parties of contract, not the form of payments between them.
