As you know, payment in international trade is complicated. After goods are sold, the seller will send an invoice or bill to the buyer for collection. The buyer can pay in different ways, such as payment by cash, check, postal money order, or by a bank transfer.

Remittance When remittance is adopted in international trade, the buyer on his own initiative remits money to the seller through a bank according to the terms and time stipulated in the contract. The buyer can adopt three different ways of remittance when he sends the money. Mail Transfer (M/T) The buyer gives money to his local bank. The local bank issues a trust deed for payment, then sends it to a correspondent bank at the seller’s end by means of mail and entrusts him to put the money to the seller.
