L/C Opening & Amendment

L/C Opening & Amendment


Letter of Credit (L/C) opening is another payment way for international financial trade.

After customers (importers/buyers) agree to pay for products with L/C payment, opening L/C with importers as beneficiary is required. The bank will be responsible for product payment if the importers accurately follow the L/C conditions.

Service Features
We offer a service providing Letter of Credit or L/C opening for customers who own import business. Customers have to open L/C and state the importer or exporter as a beneficiary. The bank will be responsible for goods payment under the conditions of L/C.

This service allows buyers to receive goods under conditions agreed with the sellers, while the sellers receive goods payment after following every L/C process. The bank can only check the accuracy of documents, not the quality of such products.

Our service is available for Irrevocable Credit only. In case of cancellation or amendment, relevant sellers’ approval is required.

After opening L/C, if customers need to make information amendment, a request of such amendment should be required.
