Secure terms payment and the Incoterms rules

Trade finance mechanisms such as letters of credit and documentary collections allow buyers and sellers to deal with each other in an environment of limited trust

Letters of credit and documentary collections are based on the principle that banks can control documents that represent the goods.

The Incoterms rules include (section A8) obligations on the seller to provide documents to the buyer, but they say little about what these documents should be.
