Keep your trade moving across borders - simply, safely and quickly

Control title to goods and payment terms

Specify when title to goods should be released to your buyer - at payment or at your buyer's acceptance of the bills.

Negotiate better terms and prices

Documentary collections, as opposed to documentary credits, are generally faster and less expensive for your buyer, giving you additional leverage to negotiate better terms.

Work with a trusted partner in new markets

HSBC often will be able to act on the import, as well as export, side of the collection due to our global branch network - providing you with fast, efficient processing and problem resolution.
